Basic course with nicely organised information, in my opinion good starting point for people who are interested in chinese medicine but do not have any medical knowledge.

Excellent basic course, a perfect introduction to Chinese Medicine!

Everyday Chinese Medicine teaches me how to balance excessive condition, the theory behind yin and yang, the physiological relationship and effects of external factors to internal body not only based as anatomical unit as compared to western medicine.
