Medicinal Wines (Saturday) Chinese medicine wines, called yao jin, have enjoyed a long history in Chinese medicine. They have been used to treat women’s diseases, digestive disorders, weak bones & sinews, bi syndrome, external injuries, skin conditions, & wind disorders. On Saturday, Mr. Yuen will discuss medicinal wines in Chinese medicine and give recipes and practical information about using them in clinical practice.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (Sunday) The United States has the highest rates of sexually transmitted diseases in the industrialized world, according to Centers for Disease Control. An estimated 15.3 million new cases of STDs are reported each year, with women suffering more frequent and serious complications from STDs than men. On Sunday, Mr. Yuen will discuss Chinese medical perspectives on the etiology, pathogenesis, and treatment for the most common types of STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, HIV/AIDS, genital HPV, syphilis, trichomoniasis, vaginosis, & PID.

Herbs & the Eight Extras (Friday & Monday) Some classical Chinese medical practitioners have alleged that post-Cultural Revolution Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has “herbalized” acupuncture, presenting formulas for points based upon herbal medical diagnosis and treatment. In this course, Jeffrey Yuen presents the opposite – an “acupuncturized” method of formulating herbs. In addition to the uses of herbs in the myriad traditions of Chinese herbal medicine, herbs can be used energetically to tap into the meridian systems of classical Chinese medicine. This course explores the energetic uses of herbs that resonate with the Eight Extra Vessels and strategies to access and treat the Eight Extra Meridians with Chinese herbs.
