Drug-Herb Interactions

Knowing the Drugs Your Patients Are Taking and How They Interact with Chinese Medicine

Think of this series as pharmaceutical course "lite" for Chinese medical practioners. We are going to talk about all of the major drug categories, get into why they are prescribed, how they work, and the dangers to be on the look out for.

Series Overview

We know that a large proportion of our patients are on pharmaceuticals or trying to avoid being on them. To be the most effective practitioner we can, we need to know about drugs, how they work, and how they affect what we do with Chinese medicine.

 

Think of this series as pharmaceutical course "lite." We are going to talk about all of the major drug categories, get into why they are prescribed, how they work, and the dangers to be on the look out for. All of this from the perspective of a Chinese medical practitioner. So we discuss drug-herb and drug-acupuncture interactions as well as important and positive combinations.

 

The first two courses start at the basics. In the first course, The Basics of Pharmacology and Chinese Medicine, we get into many of the basics of pharmacology including pharmacokinetics (and the ADME scheme) and pharmacodynamics. In the second course, we expand on these basics and jump deep into drug-herb interactions. After that, we explore categories of drugs.

 

This series is all about applying what you learn to your patients. When we discuss drug-herb interactions, we not only talk about how to understand the information but also how to communicate it to our patients by introducing a practice building tool, the Drug-Herb Matrix.

 

This is a super important course for any practitioner!

 

This seminar is based on my book published by Blue Poppy: Integrative Pharmacology, Combining Modern Pharmacology and Integrative Medicine written with Bob Flaws.

Disclaimers

  • *CEU/CPD Approvals

    Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.

    If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.

    We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top.

    Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request.

    If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.

    Because this is a series, approvals are done on a course-by-course basis. If you see "[Partial Approval]" that means that not all courses have approval at this time. You will be able to request the remaining approvals if "[Remaining Upon Request]" is listed in the Pending section.
