Increasingly, patients seeking acupuncture and herbal care may already be on a variety of western pharmaceuticals. It is essential that acupuncturists understand the fundamentals of possible herb-drug interactions prior to prescribing any herbal formulas for patients who are already taking western medications. Unexpected side effects from herb-drug interactions are a real and often devastating possibility. Ensure the safety of your patients and your practice with an understanding of possible herb-drug interactions.

This course focuses on conditions in the following: musculoskeletal disorders, infection, and emotional disorders.

Dr. John Chen, a recognized authority in western pharmacology and Chinese herbal medicine, author, and faculty of the USC School of Pharmacology and many TCM colleges, shares the most appropriate herb-drug interactions in relation to Evergreen Herbs' Collection formulas. In addition, Dr. Chen also discusses the safe and defensive practice guidelines to minimize side-effects, adverse reactions, and herb-drug interactions.

Evergreen’s Collection formulas are classic formulas modified and adapted for powerful contemporary usage, often given straightforward names linked with the primary diagnosis appropriate for the formula. These formulas are not only individually effective, but are used by some of our profession’s top practitioners in modular fashion, that is, combining formulas to create an even more effective master formula specific to an individual’s unique health patterns and imbalances.

This course focuses on conditions in the following: musculoskeletal disorders, infection, and emotional disorders.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Understand the concepts of herb-drug interactions
  • Know when and how to use Evergreen Herbs' Collection formulas
  • Recognize drugs with risks of drug-herb interactions

I always learn so much from Dr. Chen. He is extremely knowledgeable in TCM and Western Pharmacology which is so important. I could watch the same lecture 100 times and still pick up important information every time that I missed the time before!

A very interesting and lively class for me. I learned a lot today about what and why things work and how to proceed with caution with certain western medicines, especially blood thinners!
