Internal medicine is an integral part of both western and traditional Chinese medicine. Both medicines have advantages and disadvantages in regards to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Dr. John Chen is a recognized authority in both western pharmacology and Chinese herbal medicine, author, and faculty of the USC School of Pharmacology and many TCM colleges.
In order to achieve optimal treatment results with minimal side effects or adverse reactions, it is imperative that healthcare practitioners understand both western and traditional Chinese medicine systems so they can help their patients make clear and informed decisions. In this lecture, Dr. Chen covers infectious disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, and cardiovascular/circulatory disorders.
