WITH ONE WEEK ACCESS!
This seminar, led by Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen, will explore the use of Chinese medicine for treating endocrine and immunity related issues. With endocrine disorders on the rise, Chinese medicine offers an integrated understanding of how the endocrine (and exocrine) humors can exert over the neurological, immunological, and psychosocial systems. The Jin-Ye fluids, which are associated with the fu-bowels, can impact our constitution and the cycles of growth, maturity, and decline. The seminar will cover how Chinese medicine modulates the San Jiao mechanism and the Jin-Ye fluids, and how this can impact the other humors, Jing, Shen, Qi, and Xue-blood. The seminar will also examine how the different aspects of Zheng-upright qi such as Wei-defensive and Zong-chest qi deal with biological and non-biological perversities and their anatomical and clinician manifestations, providing a deeper understanding of Zhang-miasms, Gu-parasites, Chong-Worms, and Zhu-infestations, aside from Shang Han and Gan Mao conditions.
The seminar will explore how the different modalities of Chinese medicine (herbs, acupuncture, essential oils, stones, diet, exercise, and sleep-rest/meditation) can be used to regulate and manage the endocrine and immune systems. The current FuZheng (Support the Zheng-Upright Qi) approach will also be examined. The seminar will cover the Jin-Ye and it's mechanism within San Jiao, the Jin-Ye and the Lungs, Spleen, and Kidneys and their Qi, correlations to Blood - Liver, Heart, and Spleen, Jin-Ye and Wei-Ying-Yuan Qi, and the synergy and antagonism of the hormonal complexes.
Additionally, the seminar will discuss how the different modalities of Chinese medicine can be utilized to address the immune system and its correlations to the endocrinology, psychology, and neurology. Other features of immunity such as auto-immunity and immuno-deficiency with their clinical management will also be discussed.
The Endocrine System & Chinese Medicine (FRI & SAT)
With endocrine disorders increasing substantially in today’s world, ranging from diabetes, metabolic syndrome, adrenal exhaustion, to osteoporosis, it is relevant to consider the options offered by Chinese medicine. Correlated to the jin-ye (fluid physiology), Chinese medicine presents an integrated understanding of how these endocrine (and exocrine) humors can exert over the neurological, immunological, and psychosocial systems. In addition, these Ye-thick fluids are associated with the curious fu-bowels which can impact our constitution and the cycles of growth, maturity, and decline.
While fluid physiology is modulated by the San Jiao mechanism, it also has a significance over the other humors of Chinese medicine — Jing, Shen, Qi, and Xue-blood. As such, the Jin-Ye influences all the Zang-Fu and arguably, can be viewed as the basis of all healing. Since most of the hormones warrants a gradual synergetic and antagonistic feedback loop, its dynamics can be affected directly by ying-nourishing qi and yuan-source qi.
In this seminar, Jeffrey Yuen will explore the role of herbs, acupuncture, essential oils, stones, diet, exercise, and sleep-rest/meditation can have on the endocrine system and provide approaches on their regulation and management.
Immunity and Chinese Medicine (SUN & MON)
Conceptually, immunity would be associated with the Zheng-upright qi in Chinese medicine that deals with Xie-perverse qi. With richness in Chinese medical literature regarding the dynamics of how the body deals with Xie-perverse qi, clinicians of Chinese medicine can gain different approaches from its various traditions on how to arouse, maintain, and support the nature of the Zheng-upright, which can offer insights into understanding the immune system.
In addition, exploring how the different aspects of Zheng-upright qi as Wei-defensive and Zong-chest qi deal with biological and non-biological perversities and their anatomical and clinician manifestations, offer clinicians a deeper overview on Zhang-miasms, Gu-parasites, Chong-Worms, and Zhu-infestations, aside from Shang Han and Gan Mao conditions. Other features of immunity will also be examined such as auto-immunity and immuno-deficiency with their clinical management.
This seminar will discuss how the different modalities of Chinese medicine (herbs, acupuncture, essential oils, stones, exercise/qigong, and sleep/rest/meditation) can be utilized to address the immunity system, as well as its correlations to the endocrinology, psychology, and neurology. The current FuZheng (Support the Zheng-Upright Qi) approach will also be examined.

RECENT SEMINAR COMMENTS FROM STUDENTS:
I have been attending Dr. Yuen’s lectures for many years and have always been highly impressed by the depth of his knowledge and the fluency of his communication. As Einstein said, the true test of your knowledge is whether you can communicate it simply.
- Peter W. L.Ac.
Jeffrey is a treasure. Truly an encyclopedia of Chinese medicine.
- Camille V. L.Ac.
I’m very grateful to Master Jeffrey for sharing his deep knowledge and wisdom. It makes a huge difference in the modern world. It is very much needed. Thank you!
- Adam P. Student
Jeffrey Yuen is the highest level teacher of Chinese medicine.
- Stan P. L.Ac.
Dr. Yuen's teachings are inspirational. We are fortunate to have him available to our healing community. I hope to participate in future courses.
- Jane B. L.Ac, RN
Thank you for bringing this priceless knowledge to the world!
- David. S., M.D.
A wonderful, inspiring, compelling course that spoke to all that is important in our connection to the plant world. What an honour it is to study this work with Jeffrey.
- Tina C., L.Ac.
Jeffrey Yuen is a blessing for us. In this journey, Master Yuen brings us to not only to herbs but also a lot of different thinking processes. This is a reinventing of life and medicine.
- Fatih S., L.Ac.
Dr. Yuen’s wealth of knowledge and experience is a constant source of inspiration. He presents large concepts and then breaks them into smaller bites. He always leaves us wanting more.
- Linda R., L.Ac.
I also must take this opportunity to offer my thanks to the organisers of the course. As an online course the
execution of the technology is paramount and that was done robustly and at no point, during any of the
seminars, did I feel like it was not well managed. Communication was fantastic. If a hybrid (online and in-
person) class were organised in the future I would have no qualms about attending online because I’m sure
that the online participants would be supported as much as those attending in-person.
- Robert A. L.Ac
The filming is always seamless and the online platform works very well. Although nothing takes the place of being somewhere in person, I’m so grateful to be able to attend lectures without having to travel. Thanks so much for facilitating!
- Jennifer A., L.Ac.
Jeffrey Yuen is such a delightful teacher. I look forward to future courses with Jeffrey.
- Julia U., L.Ac.
As I noted I’m very grateful of this opportunity to take this class online. I studied under Jeffrey from 2005-08 at Swedish and then post grad from 08-13 at his Chinatown location. I do hope this allows for future online classes, it's a beautiful and excellent use of the technology. One of the bright moments of this entire period of pandemic. Thank you all and I look forward to the next class(es).
- Jomo S., L.Ac.

- Janet B., M.D.
I feel so inspired and excited about taking the ideas discussed in the lecture and putting them into practice. I’ve been really unhappy about the disconnect between Chinese Herbal medicine and the plants themselves. I’m excited to start again by putting together my own materia medica and connecting in a deeper level with the plants. I’m also really excited to be going over the ways of thinking behind the classic texts and understanding so much better where the formulas stemmed from.
- Erin A., L.Ac.
