Dr. Fruehauf's approach to Shang Han Lun and classical Chinese medicine is deeply welcome and satisfying, theoretically and clinically. His engaged and practical teaching style is both intellectually fun and incredibly useful. I loved this seminar and was able to put what I learned to immediate use.

In several classical Chinese medical lineages, the lung organ system is at the center of health and vitality. It is after all, “the master of qi” and source of all vitality. Yet, in TCM it is too often relegated solely to the realms of respiration and immunity. In this seminar, Dr. Fruehauf explores his deep personal interest in the role of the lung in physiology and pathology.

Materials presented will represent decades of research into this topic as well as the expertise he has derived from a clinical practice that has specialized in this area for over twenty years. He will present unique clinical strategies grounded in personal research and clinical practice that are intended to support practitioners in an in depth and sophisticated herbal approach to treating the vast array of pathologies that can manifest through the lung.
