TCM is a combination of Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) and western conventional medicine created between 1949 and 1980 in the ‘People’s Republic of China’ due to complex historical, political and economic reasons.

In creating TCM, many of the foundations & concepts of Classical Chinese Medicine were removed or changed and substituted with western anatomy and physiology. At the same time, a selection of CCM concepts and methods were westernized, standardized, adapted and ultimately adjoined into the new system.

The merging of the two distinct systems produced some critical flaws and severe therapeutic limitations due to major loss of theory and concepts, many of which are noticed by TCM practitioners at some point in their work or study.

In this seminar you will discover the actuality and clear logic of the ancient wisdom within the Classical Chinese Medical system!
You will get the necessary concepts to understand the cause and disease mechanism of autoimmune disorders in general and the way they develop into specific manifestations.

The key to developing a legitimate strategy and treatment method for auto-immune disorders is to reveal the individual conditions for the disease mechanism, so you can effectively enhance your results. 

What you will learn:

  • How the development of TCM affected the understanding of cause and disease mechanism
  • The classical foundations of Chinese Medicine for conditional diagnosis and treatment
  • The mechanism of autoimmune diseases in its specific causalities
  • The importance of functional connecting and disconnecting of our metabolism to avoid heat stagnation
  • The influence of emotions, diet, lifestyle to the disease mechanism
  • Diagnostic aspects and treatment approaches with herbs, acupuncture and exercises

There will be case studies and examples presented to support the lecture.
