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.
