Learn to recognize and prevent unwanted herb-drug interactions and properly incorporate herb enhancements to ongoing care plans. Ensure the safety of your patients and that of your practice with best standards of care. Learn from Dr. John Chen, expert pharmacologist and herbologist, in this current, clinically relevant course. Dr. Chen focuses on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions, as well as herbs with antibacterial, antidiabetic, diuretic, hypnotic, and sedative effects.

More and more patients dependent on one or more prescription pharmaceuticals are seeking acupuncture and herbal care. Acupuncturists must understand the fundamentals of possible herb-drug interactions prior to prescribing herbal medicines for these patients. Unexpected side effects from herb-drug interactions are real, and potentially devastating. Dr. Chen also discusses safe, protective practice guidelines to minimize side-effects, adverse reactions, and herb-drug interactions. Attend this class to strengthen the safety of your patients and your practice with an understanding of potential herb-drug interactions.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Understand the fundamental concepts of herb-drug interactions
  • Recognize herbs with potential herb-herb and herb-drug interactions
  • Recognize drugs with potential drug-herb interactions
  • Recognize patients at risk for disease-herb interactions
  • Be equipped with safe, protective practice guidelines to minimize side-effects, adverse reactions and unwanted herb-drug interactions, while confidently enhancing care
