ACVBM 2024 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
The 2024 ACVBM Annual Conference will be held online on Sunday, November 10th, 2024 and feature Brendan Kelly L.Ac.
Brendan will speak about the Six Stage of Cold Progression from the Shang Han Lun (SHL) perspective. In addition to speaking about the clinical use of western herbs from this tradition he'll also discuss some of the historical changes in the SHL tradition, as this can clarify some of the developments in the use of herbs. In addition, he'll share some of his experience applying SHL clinically with a western diagnosis of COVID, which starts as a wind cold. Brendan will speak about treating that as well as long COVID. Additional cold-based conditions may be included.
