There’s a systematic approach that has been worked out over 2,000 years for making Chinese herbal medicine as easy to learn and logical as possible. In this course, Bob Flaws puts this approach to work for you. He prepares you to prescribe Chinese herbs safely, knowledgeably, and effectively, according to the same standards of care of Chinese doctors in the People’s Republic of China. The curriculum presupposes that participants have already studied basic Chinese medical theory, Chinese medical diagnosis, pattern discrimination, and basic treatment principles and procedures. It’s not intended for beginning students or for professional practitioners of other healthcare disciplines who have not also completed entry-level education in acupuncture at an NCCAOM-acceptable school.
