The concept of Gu Syndrome ("Possession Syndrome") is an important feature of classical Chinese medicine that has been thoroughly misunderstood and subsequently disappeared from the historical record of TCM. During the last 15 years, Dr. Fruehauf has tirelessly researched this topic to demonstrate how forgotten ancient medical wisdom can provide effective solutions for difficult clinical problems in our time. In his most detailed lecture on the subject to date, he explains how Qing Dynasty Gu-parasitology can provide unique approaches to chronic infections caused by viruses, fungi, spirochetes, and intestinal parasites--beneficial information for practitioners treating patients who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, IBS, and related auto-immune disorders with "strange" symptoms.
