Tongue diagnosis is known as one of the main diagnostic pillars in the long history of Chinese medicine. The tongue is the first organ of the digestive system and can show us the a connection to the inside of the body.
By observing the tongue in the five elements model, we can identify in few seconds who is the person in front of us and what are his/ her emotional and physical imbalances. When diagnosis is clear, the treatment will be fast, exact and simple even in difficult conditions.
Tongue diagnosis has many advantages in comparison to other diagnostic methods. It is fast, simple, reliable, we can track changes with photographs, and of course in the technological world we live in, it is possible to diagnose people from any place on earth with the smartphone.
In the seminar Aaron Zizov will introduce the method he is using on the last 15 years of his practice step by step, in a way that will make you understand the principles of tongue diagnosis in a very easy and friendly approach that can help you in your practice immediately.
We will go briefly through the basic theories and philosophies of the Chinese medicine with their connection to the tongue, up to the main part of the workshop on the 11 categories and five association areas of the internal organs systems, with focus on each area and the different meanings of what we can see there. Then, we will see how to build a strategy for the treatment with acupuncture and herbs.
Aaron Zizov graduated studies Chinese medicine studies on 2004 in Tel Aviv, Israel. He specialized in Gynecology, Dermatology and Cosmetology at the Zhejiang university and in the provincial hospital of T.C.M, Hangzhou, China.

As such, Blood Stasis is seen in many gynecology-related conditions. Women are especially prone to Blood Stagnation in the pelvis due to the complex arrangement of the reproductive organs in that area. This can include numerous and diverse conditions such as abdominal masses, abdominal pain, ovarian cysts, flooding and trickling, heavy periods, no periods, scanty periods, painful periods, ectopic pregnancy, habitual miscarriage, infertility, menopausal syndrome, etc. This recorded lecture will give an overview of Blood Stasis as it occurs in different stages of a woman’s life.

“First inspect the channels, separating and following...then adjust them accordingly” – Su Wen
In this Level Two class, you will fine-tune the skills you learned in Level One, where you learned to follow the Channel Qi: Here you will learn to separate them, distinguishing between the various types of channel Qi.
Liver channel Qi gives off a very different signal than Spleen channel Qi. Kidney Channel Qi feels different from the Liver or the Spleen. Once you have even a mild sense for “following” the Channel Qi, you can quickly learn to tell the channels apart!
You'll learn to trust yourself when you feel unusual channel behaviors – such as Du Channel Qi responding to a blockage by floating up out of the body and into thin air – and understand why the patient with this pattern has profound deficiency symptoms that don’t respond to the usual tonics or stimulation.
Please note that Detecting Channel Qi Aberrations - Course 1, Level 1 is a prerequisite to this course.

Persistent infection and chronic immune dysfunction are common problems in the clinic. They may be due to an unresolved or persistent viral, bacterial, amoebic or fungal infection, or the result of an immune imbalance due to an immune reaction to chemicals, chemotherapy, radiation or severe emotional trauma.
Clinical experience shows that pathogens that get trapped in the body tend to be located in distinct and clearly defined locations. These locations can be precisely determined. The types of pathogens involved also tend to transform once in the body into one of only two types. The key to expelling (venting) pathogens from the body and correcting the immune dysfunction is to clearly determine the type of pathogen involved and its precise location.
This course presents an accessible and user friendly model that facilitates the analysis of the location and nature of the most commonly seen types of lingering pathogen. The model presented is based on twenty five years of clinical experience with immune problems, and is the result of drawing together and hybridizing the most clinically relevant sections of the Shang Han Lun (Treatise on Cold Damage) and We Re Lun (Treatise on Warm Diseases). In the first section, the model is presented systematically, with an emphasis on the specific signs and symptoms characteristic of linger pathogens, and the specific examination techniques used to elicit them. Each section is illustrated and the methodology reinforced by numerous cases from the presenters practice. In the second section, we will look at the special treatment strategies required to eliminate pathogens, repair any damage done, and restore balance to the body. Traditionally, the primary treatment method has been herbal, but the presenter finds that specific acupuncture protocols can be effective for some types of lingering pathogen. Specific formulas and acupuncture protocols will be discussed in detail.
