Course Overview

Although Chinese medicine has been around for almost 3000 years, outside of China it is not always understood what the needles do in our body? Does Chinese Medicine treat this or other disease? How is it compared to existing pharmaceutical drugs?

As science advances, funds are directed to research precisely to answer these questions. And the results are surprising. There are many diseases where acupuncture is effective, many-a-times superior to some drugs. Beyond that, today we know that needles at certain points have very similar mechanism of action to some drugs, but without side effects or addiction.
In this course, Dr. Barzilay reviews 5 key studies that will make you fall in love with Chinese Medicine and explain how it all fits with modern world diseases and conventional medicine.
With the headlines surrounding use of TCM for the treatment of COVID-19 (Corona Virus) in China, there is a small section which covers new studies just published from China.

The course may be useful for people interested in Chinese Medicine, as well as students and therapists.
