A One-of-a-Kind Seminar You Won’t Want to Miss!
YOU WILL DISCOVER . . .
• Why hormone balance is crucial for all women, regardless of age, symptoms or condition
• How to recognize and treat systemic patterns of functional endocrine imbalance as they relate to patterns of Jing Qi and Shen disharmony
• How to make a Six-Condition diagnosis to treat conditions such as pelvic congestion, estrogen and progesterone deficiency and excess, hypothyroid syndrome, electrolyte imbalance, etc.
• How to select and deliver important essential oils, herbs and nutrients for each syndrome discussed – using olfactory, topical and internal delivery methods – with hands-on treatment practicums where we apply the oils to particular acupuncture points
• The systemic analysis and treatment of many important symptoms and disorders seen clinically, including menstrual conditions, PMS, fibroids, menorrhagia and PCOS
• Concise profiles of the important essential oils and herbs used in treatment, including Geranium, Rose, Fennel, Clary sage, Chasteberry, Black cohosh, Sage, Saw palmetto, and many others.
Most gynecological conditions today are not simple complaints, such as menstrual pain, but arise from systemic endocrine/hormonal imbalance, e.g. estrogen or progesterone excess or deficiency, thyroid deficiency, PCOS, and so on. With Chinese Medicine we can now recognize hormonal imbalances as patterns of Jing and Shen disharmony. We can treat these directly with certain essential oil and herbal remedies that are known to modulate specific hormones. In addition, we can use essential oils by inhalation to treat the important Shen aspect of endocrine imbalance. Addressing the mental-emotional (Shen) issues that cause chronic conditions of Blood and Qi stagnation is often key to successful treatment.
Knowing the endocrine or Jing dynamics of a condition can greatly enhance our treatment strategies and produce excellent rather than just OK results - clearly a huge advantage in clinical practice. Secondly, it provides us with a much larger and more focused range of treatment options, including powerful essential oils such as Geranium, Clary sage and Black spruce oil, and specific herbal remedies such as Black cohosh, Vitex, Rhodiola, Ashwaghanda, in addition to acupuncture treatment. And finally, educating our patients about their condition from this integrative perspective will greatly increase their confidence in a positive treatment outcome.
In addition to being information-packed, this seminar will incorporate several practicums where we will practice Aroma Acupoint (oil-to-point) sequences for treating many of these conditions hands-on.
