Course Overview
Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) drugs as a class are varied in their effects and often used by patients of acupuncturists and Chinese medical practitioners. They also have serious adverse effects, drug-herb interactions, as well as interference with Chinese diagnostics. This seminar examines major ANS drugs and the dangers Chinese medical practitioners need to be aware of when combining with herbs and acupuncture. We will look at various types of biomedical treatments for Alzheimers and other dementias, Parkinson's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, asthma, hypo- and hypertension, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and other conditions. Herb-drug and acupuncture-drug interactions will be explored for each type of drug.
