Course Topic: Use of Essential Oils in the Chinese Medical Treatment of Epidemics

Presenter: Jeffrey Yuen comes directly from a Daoist lineage and trained under the Daoist priest, Yuen, learning among other healing arts, Chinese herbal medicine. Yuen was invited by NCCAOM to be among a group of prominent practitioners, to write and review questions during the development of the NCCAOM herbal exam and also served on their Finalization Committee.

Program Description: Throughout history, all cultures have been exposed to recurring and emerging pestilent factors that, in some cases, have evolved into major infectious and communicable diseases. Challenged by these deadly epidemics, each culture has developed approaches within their medical paradigm to address the prevention, management, and treatment of such conditions. Within Chinese medicine, various traditions have been founded specifically to deal with epidemics. From the Han Dynasty comes the school of Shang Han, the new ideas pertaining to Gan Mao from the Song Dynasty, and from the collective Wen Bing tradition of the Ming-Qing Dynasties. In this two-day course, participants will be guided through an understanding of the etiology, pathology, and differential diagnosis of epidemics from gu-parasites, zhang-miasms, to li-pestilence. Recognizing the infectious nature of these conditions, the practice of fumigation and the use of spices to fully expel the pathogens were practiced with aromatic substances. The focus of this workshop is to introduce participants to the proper use of aromatic essential oils and how this modality can be integrated into the prevention, management, and treatment of epidemics.
