Event Details

Co-sponsored by Pacific College and Lhasa OMS

TCM has been used with great success to combat Covid-19 in China; however, its influence is barely palpable in the Western countries. Even as the Covid-19 pandemic reaches its peak around the world, many TCM practitioners are forced to close their clinics because their services are “non-essential.” This pattern of disharmony occurs in part because we as a profession have not communicated effectively with the public and the WM healthcare practitioners. We must go beyond the philosophy of yin and yang and present the science of TCM. We must learn the pharmacology of herbal medicine and present the clinical evidence of herbal treatment. These are challenges we must overcome to earn the respect and credibility to become mainstream healthcare practitioners.
Subjects to be covered:
  1. Virology and pathophysiology of Covid-1
  2. Pharmacological research of Chinese herbs
  3. Clinical studies of Chinese herbal formulas
  4. Safety concerns of Chinese herbs: side effects, adverse reactions, caution, contraindications, herb-drug interactions, etc.
Note: This will be the third class by Dr. Chen on TCM treatment of viral infections and coronavirus (Covid-19). Please try to watch the first two classes before attending this third one.
