Auricular Medicine is a specialty within Traditional Chinese Medicine that has its roots in the Huang Di Nei Jing and some of its branches in Western Medicine. Using the micro-system of the Auricle, Auricular Medicine has developed into an incredibly sophisticated system of both diagnosis and treatment of all bio-systems of the body. The diagnosis is remarkably comprehensive and accurate. Without a patient interview, or history, the examination alone provides the doctor with more information than the patient’s intake paperwork. Treatment can relieve acute pain within seconds. Dr. TruthSayer’s introduction includes many interesting cases from her clinical practice.
Dr. TruthSayer, DAOM, Dip.OM, LAc, LMFT, is a President Emeritus of the California State Oriental Medical Association, and a former faculty member of the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco. She is Founder and Chief Faculty of the Institute of Auricular and Transcendental Medicine and has lectured around the world on auricular topics.

Knee Pain: The Medial Compartment (Acute and Chronic)
Acute pain, inflammation, and swelling in the medial knee is often experienced after injury or trauma in sports. It may involve sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) or tear to the medial meniscus. From a meridian (jing-luo) perspective, we usually think of the three leg yin meridians – the Spleen, the Kidney, and the Liver. However, medial knee pain should be understood in terms of western orthopedic diagnosis. Your treatment plan, rehabilitation and prognosis for the patient all arise from this assessment. But most importantly, prognosis – what you communicate to the patient – is what is unique to each diagnosis.
Pain, inflammation, swelling, and stiffness of the medial knee, at the joint space, is also seen as a chronic condition. This pain is often due to medial compartment osteoarthritis. Sources suggest that over 30 percent of individuals between the ages of 60 and 90 are affected by this condition in one of the three compartments of the knee. That percentage will likely increase over the next decade, and therefore its inclusion in this webinar. Commonly diagnosed as a Bi syndrome, the three leg yin meridians encompass the medial joint space. Webinar instructor Whitfield Reaves will discuss a very useful technique of “threading the opening of a joint space” in the region of Liver 8.

A 78- year-old man comes in the Emergency department with back pain that radiates down his legs. Treatment protocols for this condition are vastly different depending in which paradigm of medicine is used. In this recorded talk, Dr. Keown discusses and compares how back pain is approached from a Western perspective, and how it is approached from the Eastern perspective. He introduces an understanding of fascia that allows us to approach back pain from East to West with equanimity. As an emergency room physician, he discusses some of the techniques he has used to successfully treat patients in acute pain.
