Webinar: The aftercare of COVID-19 Infection – Herbs, acupuncture, massage, nutrition and exercise

Recent studies have indicated that the remaining problems of patients after a COVID-19 infection need to be addressed. Even in the severe and complicated cases, where COVID-19 has caused damages of heart, lung, liver, kidney and brain, the integrated therapies of traditional Chinese medicine can help to reduce the suffering of the patients. The seminar will show possibilities for effectively dealing with COVID-19 aftercare will be beneficial for the work of acupuncturists, herbalists, dieticians, massage therapists, exercise trainers and lifestyle consultants.

Respiratory Infections, including Covid – WM

Respiratory Infections, including Covid – WM

This is the most common morbidity in our moderate, sea climate; especially in young children. Weather influences but also genetic factors such as allergies, act on our susceptibility. Asthma has been increasing steadily over the last decades. Which factors play a role here? Annually many people die of the flu, which is transmitted by air. Also, chronic diseases such as COPD, and cancer, will be addressed, as well as the current ‘flu’, the corona epidemic.

Red Flags-1 Western Medicine

Red Flags-1 Western Medicine

One of the major aims of integration of Western medicine knowledge into the education of practitioners of acupuncture, TCM, tuina etcetera is to recognize possible hazardous conditions in patients, so-called red flags. Red flags are signs and symptoms that should alarm the Non-BIG-registered health care professional to refer a patient to the huisarts (GP) or to an emergency.

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most frequent reasons for consultation in my own clinic. In my experience, Acupuncture and Osteopathic medicine are two effective techniques and they are synergistic in treating pain. Often pain is generically reported to a widespread area of a joint, together with some rigidity and it can be difficult to identify the Acupuncture Channel involved in a musculoskeletal pain. Osteopathic manipulative treatment’s aim is to bring back joints in their physiological position, reduce pain and limitation of the movement, and help to identify the channel that needs to be treated with Acupuncture.

The 8 extraordinary channels

The 8 extraordinary channels

The 8 extra channels (8ex) provide us with a deep understanding of the process of development and regulation. They are the basis for the meeting of Shen and Jing. Regulation processes, especially hormonal changes, including fertility and ageing, CNS (Center Nervous System) and many neurological diseases are all related to the 8ex.  Clinically, they give us the foundation to treat many complicated and common conditions as well as understanding the flow of Qi from our ancestral lineage, prenatal life and daily regulation of Wei Qi and Ying Qi.

Vaccinations -WM

Vaccinations -WM

Vaccinations have been developed to eradicate common childhood infectious diseases. A major question is: what was their real effect in a society that also improved in the last century our hygiene, nutrition and housing quality? This requires a long-term historical analysis. The current debate centres around the safety of vaccines. What precautions may need to be taken to provide a safe intervention balanced with the risks of the infection itself? And what is the role of informed consent and parental attitudes about exerting the UN human right of ‘having the health care of choice’? Also, the current potential of science to identify risk groups for vaccination adverse reactions will be presented.

The knowledge of the seminar will give a clear overview of the pathological development of infectious and epidemic diseases and will let participants gain the ability of a decent diagnosis for this group of diseases.

Paediatrics part 2: Adolescence-WM

Paediatrics part 2: Adolescence-WM

Paediatrics part 2: Adolescence. In many ways, the ‘jump’ or growth-spurt to autonomy by adolescents poses challenges for both themselves and their parents and teachers.  Which are the processes in their mental and physical development which drive these ‘jumps’? And which factors make them stronger and also more vulnerable than in the years of childhood? And how they can be guided in dialogue in their development towards adulthood? Participants are invited to present cases that provided questions and answers to these young patients. In an active participating context, they will be discussed, so we can learn all from each other.
