Multiple drug resistance is a major issue in contemporary medicine. Many common bacteria, fungi, and viruses have developed resistance to the available antimicrobial and antiviral medications, and practitioners of Chinese medicine often treat patients after an unsuccessful course of conventional therapy where residual infection and symptoms persist.

Dr. Van Benschoten, experienced and innovative practitioner with a deep understanding of complex and intractable contemporary disorders, covers in this course the major species of multiple drug resistant bacteria, viruses, and fungi, along with a comprehensive review of herbal medicines that can treat these conditions effectively and with minimal toxicity. Clinical examples will illustrate the most important points regarding history taking and optimal strategies for herbal prescription.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Be able to identify the most common multiple drug resistant infectious agents, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi
  • Select herbal medicines that can effectively inhibit the growth of these pathogens when conventional pharmaceuticals have failed
  • Understand mechanisms of multidrug resistance in cancer, hypertension, and depression, and correlate clinically useful materia medica for specific conditions
