Treating Eczema and Psoriasis with Chinese Medicine

Eczema and psoriasis, though both quite common, can be very difficult to treat from both a biomedical and Chinese medical perspective. This course takes a deep dive into these two conditions from both points of view. First, we will explore the biomedical side of these conditions: what are they, how are they diagnosed and monitored, what are the current treatments (including drugs, light therapy, etc…) and how effective are they. Then we will look at potential Chinese medical diagnoses and how to treat them using acupuncture and herbs. Are we able to plot a course that combines the two perspectives to make a more effective treatment? Or is Chinese medicine alone enough? Let’s find out!

Course Goals

  1. Understand common pre- conditions and causes contributing to eczema and psoriasis
  2. Perform appropriate exams for diagnosing these conditions
  3. Develop appropriate and effective treatment strategies
  4. Properly document the diagnosis and treatment

    this course I recommend to everybody that practice oriental medicine, it is very helpful and informative.

  4. Patty

    What I came to this program to receive was practical knowledge about the appearance of eczema and psoriasis -with and without treatment….rather than a book(would be an escellent book) regurgitated for the 3 hours. To his credit, he is a clear and easy instructor to follow, but a picture is worth a thousand book quotes. Thank you.

  5. Jee Hyung

    he was pretty much straight forward and enjoyed it. it would’ve be nice to share some case study that had been done in past. Plus the pictures of how symptoms have been change throughout the treatment

  6. Mary

    Very comprehensive. Teacher invited questions, answered every question, and had an excellent presentation. Greg is a knowledgeable, personable teacher who has a great presentation style that incorporates slides, lecture, invitation for questions (both written and live), and clinical examples.

    The western part was more than eastern. Would have been nice if it was switched. Always a pleasure, Dr. Sperber. Your enthusiasm and thorough knowledge of subjects makes the information exponentially more interesting! Thank you!
