Course Overview
Acute respiratory conditions are commonly seen in the clinic, and Chinese herbal formulas offer particularly effective treatment. The common cold that progresses into cough occurs frequently, and in this recording, we will delineate seven distinct stages of cough. Available Chinese herbal formulas will be discussed for each stage, with a focus on the rationale of the component ingredients. Besides cold and cough, we will also discuss fever, infectious throat conditions and ear infections. The same formulas are used for infants, children, and adults, with different dosing considerations. The recording offers clinical tips for managing cases, which will be of interest for advanced herbal practitioners as well as those just beginning to explore herbal medicine.

    What People Are Saying

    Very relevant information for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of evaluating the stages of acute respiratory diseases caused by viruses, and how they may be addressed using classical and modern Chinese formulas.

    Great course and very informative. It cleared up some confusion about the many cold and cough formulas available and simplified how to recognize the different stages of cough. I find it much easier now to stock my own medicine cabinet as well as be prepared better for patients needs.
