Overview

5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease. Currently, considered the 6th most common cause of death in the United States, but according to the National Institute of Health, it should be ranked third. While the most common form of dementia, there are lots of different types other than Alzheimer’s. This course will examine these dementias from both biomedical and Chinese points of view, and discuss Chinese medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Often biomedical treatment involves pharmaceuticals with adverse drug reactions. Chinese medicine can help treat and support patients with dementia. Participants will leave with a real-world approach to treating these conditions.

An Introduction to Auricular Medicine

with TruthSayer

Recording

from May 7, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

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.

Acupressure to Enhance Immunity

with Peilin Li

Recording

from April 29, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

From a Chinese Medicine perspective, viruses can be considered an external pathogenic Wind that invades the body. But not everyone gets sick; why is that? Some immune systems are better equipped to deal with these invasions.

Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that everyone can enhance their immunity to better prepare against viral invasions and other pathogens. In this lecture, Peilin Li will give you an introduction to how viruses work from both Western and Chinese Medicine perspectives. He will also teach you how you can use self-massage, or acupressure, to enhance your overall immunity and protect against invasions.
