Day 2

  • Review & Synopsis of Day 1
  • Endocrine Issues and their treatment
  • Immunity
  • Auto-Immunity
  • Neurology
  • Psychology
  • Glandular Swellings

This weekend seminar will focus on integrating theories of the endocrine system with Chinese medicine. There will be a focus on the inter-relationship between the glands and their energetic similarities to the features of the Zang-Fu, particularly the San Jiao. Participants will develop strategies using acupuncture and herbal applications to treat endocrine issues relating to immunity, autoimmunity, neurology, and psychology.

The endocrine system of biomedicine is closely related to the concepts and theories articulated by the Jin-Ye within the perspective of Chinese medicine. The relationship of ye-thick fluids to the jing-essence and their impact on the processes of human development, physiology, and aging conveys some of the functions associated with the hormonal secretions of our body. More importantly, the attributes associated with the jin-ye to xue-blood and their respective Zang-Fu (as well as the Curious Fu) relationship clarify for the practitioner of Chinese medicine a better understanding of some of the major issues clinically seen pertaining to the endocrine system.
