Course Overview

This is a Live Webinar event that will be held on June 2, 2024 - 1pm PDT, 4pm EDT.


Central Nervous System (CNS) drugs as a class have profound effects and are very commonly used by patients of acupuncturists and Chinese medical practitioners. They also have serious adverse effects, drug-herb interactions, as well as potential interference with Chinese diagnostics.


This seminar examines major CNS drugs and the dangers Chinese medical practitioners need to be aware of when combining with herbs and acupuncture. We will look at various types of biomedical treatments for Parkinson's disease, other neuro degenerative conditions, insomnia, epilepsy, as well as CNS stimulants and opioid drugs. Herb-drug and acupuncture-drug interactions will be explored for each type of drug.
