Seven Steps to Avoiding Drug-Herb Interactions

We may not be able to predict all drug-herb interactions, but we can determine potentials for interactions. This seminar examines an easy way to approach these potential drug-herb interactions using 7 straight-forward steps. A discussion of protein binding, cytochrome P450, and the therapeutic index, form the foundation of this understanding. This is a must take seminar to protect your patients and yourself.

This seminar is based on my book published by Blue Poppy: Integrative Pharmacology, Combining modern pharmacology and Chinese medicine written with Bob Flaws.

Course Goals

A listener will be able to:

1. Understand the basics of how drugs and herbs interact
2. Identify the most common pharmacological reasons drugs and-herbs interact
3. Create protocols to avoid interactions

    Excellent presentation. I would have liked the opportunity to be able to download the slides

    This class was super informative and in a short amount of time! I appreciated the depth of knowledge and how succinctly the most important elements were distilled. I feel much more capable of having clear and confidence inspiring conversations with patients on why I would or wouldn’t feel comfortable putting them on herbs.
