Dietetics Soups

11 CEUs

The video portion of this course features how to make two tasty soups. One soup is for tonifying and the other is for clearing heat and toxins. The latter is appropriate for patients with COVID-19, influenza, tonsillitis, and other external pathogenic influences. Written materials support the video and include special sections on phytoestrogens and green, black, and brown tea.

Prof. Jeffrey Pang, L.Ac. presents a special Shan Yao soup to tonify spleen qi and benefit digestion. This soup is great for strengthening children and the elderly, recovering from illness, and for alleviating chronic coughing. The second soup is the Ba Wang Hua soup, which clears heat & toxins. It tastes great and is very useful for addressing coughing, toxic phlegm, fevers, and many issues associated with wind-heat and acute illness.

Additional materials cover different types of tea and their medicinal benefits, phytoestrogens, and special monographs of individual foods. Download the course materials, complete the online quiz, and receive a certificate of completion for acupuncture continuing education credit.
