A Unique Seminar You Don’t Want to Miss!
Addictions are endemic to our culture and clearly present a pandemic today. Addictive substances include not only soft, hard and prescription drugs, but increasingly food drugs such as modern wheat and refined sugar in its many forms. All addictive substances create and perpetuate a craving that, under the right social, emotional, nutritional and neurochemical conditions, can easily turn into a full-blown addiction.
All cravings and addictions result from and in turn promote an imbalance of the Shen or spirit. This seminar goes to their root by adopting two systemic approaches. Firstly, the patterns of neurochemical imbalance in the brain with their peptide deficiencies. Secondly, the three patterns of Shen disharmony with their wide spectrum of mental states, distressed feelings and pathogenic emotions. These patterns together cause typical Qi, blood and fluids pathology that can be diagnosed at any stage of the addictive process.
Essential oils and acupuncture points are powerful treatment tools for managing all kinds of food and drug addictions. Oils and points are both neuroactive when carefully and individually selected for treatment. They can be highly effective when used for acute conditions requiring mood stabilization and symptom reduction. They can also address chronic conditions when treatment of the systemic condition becomes more important with continued energetic, nutritional and emotional support. We will discuss the energetic and neuroendocrine functions of important oils and points, as well as the typical patterns of peptide, Shen and emotional imbalance they are able to treat.
Using the five Qi movements of essential oils and points in the body, we will present specific, detailed treatment protocols that can be applied to any drug or food addiction at any stage of recovery. Just as importantly, these protocols may also be used for preventive treatment to manage chronic food and drug cravings, thereby reducing the chances of cravings turning into an actual addiction. This information-packed seminar will present the essential theoretical and practical information needed to start incorporating essential oils effectively and safely in clinical practice.
In this seminar we will ...
• Examine the six basic patterns of neurochemical brain imbalance that underlie all cravings and addictions
• Discuss craving and addiction as expressions of energetic, emotional and nutritional imbalance generated by trauma
• Survey detailed profiles of common addictive substances, including tobacco/nicotine, alcohol/ethanol, cocaine, heroin and opiates, refined sugar and modern wheat.
• Explore the use of neuroactive essential oils to modulate brain chemistry and reduce addictive cravings
• Learn and practice simple but powerful techniques using essential oils with points for quickly stabilizing acute patients, as well as for reducing food cravings – with practicums!
• Consider comprehensive treatment strategies for important addiction patterns using points, essential oils, herbs and nutrition – with practicums!
... and much more!
Receiving treatments during the breakout sessions alone was worth the price of admission. Peter is a wealth of applicable knowledge. Every seminar of his that I’ve attended has changed my practice and also given me practical tools for everyday life.

“Peter’s deep knowledge and enthusiasm for essential oils made what could have been on ordinary CEU class an amazingly enriching experience. I was able to use the oils and the information the very next day in my treatment rooms. Peter is on the forefront of a whole new world in the energetic treatment of the body and psyche.”
