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 bodies. Does Chinese Medicine treat this or another 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 specific points have a very similar mechanism of action to some drugs, but without side effects or addiction.

In this course, Dr Barzilay reviews five 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 the 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 helpful for people interested in Chinese Medicine, as well as students and therapists.

This course has been produced from a live webinar, a joint production with the ICCM.
