Course Overview
Embedded in the long history of Chinese medicine is the understanding that we are intimately connected to the world around us. Using contemporary western climate science and a traditional Chinese medicine understanding of epidemics, we'll discuss the direct, immediate connection between COVID and the destabilization of the climate. Brendan also uses the ideas and research from his book "The Yin and Yang of Climate Crisis" to discuss the bigger and deeper issues connected to our warming planet including imbalances in our economic and medical systems as well as what we value individually.

We'll also use the lens of the Chinese medicine's School of Heat/Wen Bing tradition--which was developed starting in the 1300s in response to other epidemics— to provide a larger, cultural view of the underlying conditions that contribute to creating wide-spread sickness and disease. Brendan will also discuss his clinical experience using western and eastern herbs to treat Chinese medicine's understanding of COVID and other viral infections.

    *CEU/CPD Approvals

    Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days. We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way.
