TCM for the treatment of COVID-19

two hours webinar

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has had an enormous impact on human health, daily life and economies worldwide. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) offers a wealth of ancient wisdom and experience in battling epidemics, gathered during thousands of years. Because there are no vaccines or effective drugs available for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 yet, learning from the ancient literature and experience may provide help to find the cures.

His academic and clinical training have provided him a background in Chinese medicine and a comprehension of western medicine. To ameliorate effectiveness of treatment of illness, he involves himself in cancer, rheumatoid disorders, neurologic diseases, and musculoskeletal disorders and tries to integrate Chinese medicine and western medicine appropriately.
