Multiple drug resistance is a major issue in contemporary medicine. Many common bacteria have developed resistance to antibiotics, and Chinese Medicine practitioners often treat patients after an unsuccessful course of antimicrobial therapy, where residual infection and symptoms persist. In order to achieve optimal treatment results with minimal side effects and adverse reaction/interactions, this course will cover a few of the major species of multidrug resistant bacteria, viruses, and fungi with a introductory review of herbal medicines that can treat these conditions effectively and with minimal toxicity. The topics covered in this class are Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Streptococcus Pneumonia, Enterococcus I and II, Klebsiella Species, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Clostridium difficile, E. Coli and Salmonella, Acinetobacter baumannii, Borrelia burgdorferi, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Have basic knowledge of drug resistant bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
  • Learn the herbal medicines that can effectively inhibit the growth of these pathogens when conventional pharmaceuticals have failed.
  • Learn the mechanisms of multiple drug resistance in various pathogens, and know clinically useful Chinese herbs for these specific conditions.
