DescriptionThe most difficult part of TCM herbal medicine is to combine pharmaceuticals & nutraceuticals with herbs safely. The goal of this class is to implement a classical concept of TCM thinking than describing modern medicinal substances. Select western pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals will be discussed in details, including channels entered, taste, actions, indications, contraindications, rationale and modifications. (Example: Lipitor is warm, Phlegm transforming substance that enters HT, LV, SP and K channels) Ability to envision a drug in TCM terms provides clear practical guidelines on possible drug/herb interaction for TCM practitioner leading to improved safety of TCHM integration into the modern Western healthcare system.
