This course continues the discussion from our March webinar broadcast. During this 2 hour class, we will review modern traditional Chinese medicine research and training for cold and flu. Traditional Chinese medical (TCM) practitioners often see patients with cold and flu symptoms. While the treatment of cold and flu symptoms in general is described in the traditional literature and in some recently published textbooks, the results of modern research on TCM for cold and flu is more elusive to most providers, and therefore not generally understood. During this broadcast, topics will include:
- Design principles for combining traditional TCM herbal prescribing, with modern research on antiviral activity of herbs
- Practical skills acupuncturists can share with their patients
- Research-based insights into preparing the body to have a more balanced immune response to the virus
- Licensed Acupuncturists in California are designated primary care providers. What are their obligations with respect to infection control and preventing transmission, and treating patients? How doctors in China prepare themselves for a work day
- Coronapositive News: hopeful news of new solutions already available, and innovative developments in progress
