Using the lens of Chinese medicine, the class will discuss the direct connection between the rapidly warming planet and the inflammation that is a root cause of many diseases. We’ll describe some of the major concepts and traditions in Chinese medicine and how they relate to treating inflammatory conditions. These include Yin/Yang, the Five Phases, the Neurology Tradition and the Schools of Cold and Heat.
The class will also address how local, western herbs can be used within the traditions of Chinese herbal medicine and the vital importance of diet and lifestyle. Finally we’ll discuss how the insights of Chinese medicine can help us understand and effectively treat  modern epidemics, including Lyme disease, late-stage neurological Lyme, COVID and long COVID.
