Event description

Description

Unlock the potential of medicinal mushrooms in clinical practice! We will examine the traditional applications of medicinal mushrooms as presented in the Chinese pharmacopoeia, from Shen Nong's Ben Cao Jing through modern TCM text, and then compare and contrast physiological mechanisms through current peer-reviewed literature, and the clinical applications expressed through those findings.


Robert Hoffman, DAOM, L.Ac. received his master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo San University, and his doctorate from Five Branches University. In addition, Rob is currently a Phd candidate at Zhejiang Chinese Medicine University in Hangzhou, China, where he travels several times a year for additional study and clinical rotations at the Zhejiang Chinese Medicine University Hospital. His current research is in the use of mushrooms as adjuvant therapy in cancer treatment, and the role of Chinese herbs in T cell regulation. Rob was previously a senior herbalist at Dragon Herbs, under the guidance of Ron Teeguarden. He is also an avid practitioner of taiji, teaching classes in the Los Angeles area.
