This information-packed workshop will include ...

•    The clinically useful differentiation of respiratory conditions into intrinsic, allergic and infectious types of disorders.

•    Matching up viral, bacterial and fungal respiratory infections accurately with Lung patterns.

•    Pattern differentiation and treatment of major respiratory disorders, including upper respiratory infection, allergic rhinitis, influenza, RSV, viral pneumonia, bronchial asthma, and acute and chronic bronchitis.

•    Using essential oils (with specific delivery methods), herbs, formulas and acupuncture protocols for each disease and pattern discussed.

•    The psycho-emotional aspect of the Lung: the pathological effects on the Lung of unresolved grief, anger, anxiety and depression.

•    Using six-condition diagnosis to quickly establish any Lung pattern and to guide accurate treatment.   

•    The best oils, herbs and points for rapid relief of key symptoms, such as cough, dyspnea and chest oppression – with clinical differentiation.

Respiratory disorders are unique in that they reflect conditions in the environment as well as conditions in the body itself. As a result, no other organ system than the Lungs suffers from so many different types of pathology and symptoms. And, like other organs, the Lungs also become physically impacted by specific stuck emotions, especially unresolved anger, grief and mood states such as anxiety and depression.

This unique online seminar will divide respiratory disorders into intrinsic, allergic and infectious types. We will discuss each disorder in terms of its pathogenesis and physiological dynamics, as well as its typical pattern presentations in Chinese medicine. The discussion will include the mental-emotional factors involved and their impact on the Lung Qi.

With their volatile, aromatic qualities, essential oils are especially suited to treating respiratory disorders and can be used in topical applications and with various inhalation techniques. Oils are an excellent complement to acupuncture and herbal medicine, and can make the difference between OK and excellent results. Treatment options for each condition will include the best Western herbs, Chinese herbs and formulas, essential oils, nutrition and supplementation. Throughout the course, we will also spotlight key respiratory oils in clinical detail, including Laurel, Hyssop, Cypress, Green myrtle, Scotch pine, Spike lavender and Siberian fir.

What makes essential oils invaluable for treating respiratory conditions?

•    Their ability to treat infections directly (antiviral, antibacterial, etc. actions) and boost immune Wei functions as well.
•    They can be used with several different delivery methods, topical and internal (including on points), making treatment highly effective.
•    They can quickly go to the root of emotional and stress-related disorders that cause respiratory symptoms, including asthma, chest oppression, acute fatigue, etc.
•    Their ability, when used by inhalation, to treat Shen-related Lung patterns and resolve stuck grief, anger, anxiety and depression.
