This course blew my mind! I thought it was one of the most well presented courses on a subject that for me has been very illusive. I loved every part of it and would recommend it to everyone!

For over several thousand years, since the inception of Chinese medicine, the Huangdi Neijing text has been widely cited as being the key source text for the foundational principles of Chinese medicine. Despite this, it is a text that is not widely read or studied in modern times.

This online class was designed to give students and practitioners an introduction to the basic theories of this critical text as well as to give the participant an introduction as to how these ideas and clinical approaches are used to treat patients with serious and life-threatening illness today.

Reviews

Overall a good course taught by a very knowledgeable doctor.

The course subject was amazing and the teacher was clearly knowledgeable. However, the teacher was not really able to impart any sort of working understanding of the material. Too many divergences. Too many laboratory slides. It seemed more like a plug for taking longer courses than an actual course in itself.
~ Christopher

Lot of discussion around the direction of illness but little on how to apply that to treatment. An intro to the Neijing but not enough to really apply to the clinic.
