Overview

Marijuana, THC, CBD, and all their various manifestations (creams, ointments, gummies, other edibles, etc…) are really popular right now. If you live and practice in any of the numerous (and growing) states that have legalized its use, patients often ask about using these products. Even Reader’s Digest and Consumer’s Reports have done extensive articles on its use. But what is the truth about its usefulness in patient care? What does research show? Should we use it with acupuncture or herbs? And if we do, what are the potential interactions, warnings, and contraindications? This course will answer these questions and more.

Overview

As practitioners of Chinese medicine, we are quick to celebrate the “ancient” or “traditional” or “classical” roots of our beloved medicine, but all too often ignore or fail to comprehend the full implications of the ancient wisdom. What does the Yellow Emperor mean by that famous exhortation from the Great Treatise on the Resonant Manifestations of Yin and Yang that is usually translated as “to treat disease, seek the root!”? Sabine looks forward to exploring with you the full potential of Chinese medicine in the midst of a pandemic that so clearly reveals the limitations of biomedicine and the extractive mindset of our modern world, at a time when needling patients is not an option in most parts of the world. Let us take a closer look at this saying in its context, and explore what this really means for the contemporary practice of Chinese medicine. Ultimately, we shall contemplate with Laozi that “The way that can be used as a way (or in other words, the Dao that can be taught) is not the constant way.”
