HHE5126 Asian Approaches to Healing

Course Description

Two of the oldest holistic healing systems of medicine--Chinese and Ayurvedic--are presented in this introductory course. Their basic philosophies, principles, and standards of treatment are explored both didactically and experientially. Each system is outlined with emphasis on their spiritual roots, cultural and social perspectives, and their growing appeal as global alternative approaches to healing. The role of these modalities within the framework of an integrated medical system is also explored, and recent efficacy research is reviewed.
