Today's world – lifestyle and environment – is very different from what it was many years ago when Chinese herbs were first used as medicine. In response to the changes, our bodies try to adapt and as a result, new patterns of diseases have surfaced. These new patterns of diseases may encourage patients to seek an alternative method of healthcare, especially when current Western medicine options are not sufficient.

Therefore, patients seeking acupuncture and herbal care may already be on a variety of western pharmaceuticals, so it is essential that acupuncturists understand the fundamentals of possible herb-drug interactions prior to prescribing any herbal formulas. 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. Dr. Chen will go over the safe and defensive practice guidelines to minimize side-effects, adverse reactions, and herb-drug interactions.

In Part I of this course, Dr. John Chen, a doctor in both Western pharmacology and Chinese Medicine will share clinical applications and safety concerns for conditions in the following herb categories: exterior-releasing, heat-clearing, digestive, downward draining, regulate water and transform dampness, water-damp dispelling, and interior-warming.
