This class is a discussion of the main issues regarding the use of Western medicines in tandem with Chinese medicinals — a very important topic in the West. Bob Flaws outlines the main principles for prescribing Chinese medicinals to patients already on one or more Western pharmaceuticals. In addition, Bob presents a step-by-step protocol for working out the Chinese medical description of Western drugs or other herbs and foods not currently described in the Chinese medical literature.
