As a practitioner in private practice, he focuses on the complementary treatment of complex and recalcitrant diseases, including cancer, heart disease, and chronic digestive disorders. On the episode of HealthMade Radio with Dr. Michael Karlfeldt, gain insight into Classical Chinese Medicine and complex illnesses such as Lyme, COVID long haulers. Dr. Heiner Fruehauf explains the gu syndrome and how its description and treatment are similar to complex diseases.
The simple description of the approach of Classical Chinese Medicine is that the body is exposed to the parasitic organism. Due to an internal deficiency of the immune system, there is an overreaction of the immune system.
In this episode, learn:
- How the Classical Chinese Medicine approach differs from allopathic medicine?
- The Gu Syndrome and how it relates to modern-day complex issues including COVID long haulers syndrome, Lyme, and other Chronic diseases
- The power of Chinese Medicines, including herbal medicine, visualization, meditation, breathing exercises to heal complex issues

- The complexity of our connection to nature and how it relates to health and wellness
“We must realize how connected we are with the earth. There are 100 billion viruses in our environment. They get extruded into the air to give us information. It’s almost like a program update for our body.”
More About Dr. Heiner Fruehauf
Dr. Heiner Fruehauf serves as Founding Professor of the College of Classical Chinese Medicine at National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, where, until recently, he served as dean and has been teaching since 1992. His scholarly endeavors include the direction of an ongoing research project on the archaic symbolism of Chinese medicine terminology, including an in-depth analysis of the acupuncture point names. As a practitioner in private practice, he focuses on the complementary treatment of difficult and recalcitrant diseases, including cancer, heart disease, and chronic digestive disorders. In addition, Prof. Fruehauf is the director of the Heron Institute, a non-profit institution for the research and preservation of traditional life science. In this capacity, he has been leading the Sacred Mountain Retreat for fifteen years, an almost annual study tour focusing on Qigong and other aspects of Classical Chinese Medicine, held in the sacred mountains of Southwest China.
Heiner founded Classical Pearls in 2008, inspired by 20 years of studies with a broad variety of herbal masters in China and his own clinical experience treating chronic and recalcitrant conditions in Western societies. He saw a distinct need for potent herbal formulations that could be used in the long-term constitutional therapy for difficult health problems that appear resistant to conventional medicine and standardized TCM herbal approaches. Much of his time is now dedicated to the direct sourcing, preparation, and production of the Classical Pearls line.
