Overview

We should be empowering our patients to help themselves. What better way to do that than give them info for having Chinese herbal formulas in their medicine cabinet to help with minor medical conditions. In this course, we will look at relatively easy to find prepared herbal medicines everyone should have in their medical cabinet. We we discuss the conditions they treat, how to use them, and any cautions. As a bonus, each participant will receive a free copy of the upcoming ebook (when available): “Dragons in the Medicine Cabinet, Chinese Herbal Medicines Everyone Should Have at Home.” Conditions covered include, but are not limited to, colds, bleeding, burns, digestive complaints, headaches, and sinusitis.

People often suffer as they die, and we as acupuncturists can help in the assistance of their death. We help them relax and let go; this softening offers release from their fears and anxieties.

Overview

Skin disorders in their various forms are amongst the most common diseases suffered by mankind, accounting for no less than 1 in 5 of all visits to out-patients departments in the Western world. Despite this prevalence and the resources put into this field, many patients are dissatisfied with the conventional treatments available to them, and look elsewhere for solutions. In fact, Chinese herbal medicine has a very real and enduring answer for a significant number of sufferers of many chronic diseases of the skin such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, rosacea etc. Since dermatology is essentially a visual art, a great deal of information can be gleaned from detailed inspection of the way skin diseases manifest. In this short webinar, Mazin will outline some of the axiomatic concepts of Chinese medicine dermatology, using many photographic images and some case examples to illustrate the fundamentals that are required in understanding and treating skin disease.
