Skin disorders, in their various forms, are among the most common diseases suffered by mankind, accounting for no less than 1 in 5 of all visits to outpatient departments in the Western world.
Chinese herbal medicine has a real and enduring answer for a significant number of sufferers of many diseases of the skin. It can induce spectacular and lasting change in a whole range of intractable conditions such as eczema, acne, and psoriasis, yet due to lack of specialist training, numerous practitioners of Chinese medicine fail to achieve the optimal results that are well within their grasp.
In this introductory two-day lecture, the fundamental principles of treating the most common skin diseases will be presented, using many case examples with photographic slides from Mazin’s own practice. Throughout, the emphasis is on practical and clinically relevant information, which will serve as a foundation to enable doctors to understand the essential concepts required to construct effective formulae to suit the vagaries of clinical reality.
