Category 1
Presenter: 

While Traditional Chinese Medicine had been utilized to treat fertility challenges for years, the common approach to addressing these challenges often is often one-dimensional. As there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach, the data proves that we're better together.

As partners, conventional medicine and traditional medicine has the opportunity to capitalize on the synergy of both modalities to improve the outcomes of patients who are experiencing fertility challenges of various types.

Goals and Outlines

  • To provide a framework for partnering with reproductive endocrinologists for an integrative approach to the treatment and management of fertility challenges
  • To define the players
  • To acknowledge the challenges in establishing a bonafide partnership
  • To learn the aspects of integrative health
  • To become familiar with and comfortable utilizing REI vernacular
  • To demonstrate how consistent communication and open dialogue between physicians and practitioners synergistically works to improve the patient outcomes

    New Insights into the Eight Extraordinary Channels in the Treatment of Infertility and Miscarriageimmediately after purchasefor 2 years
    California
    Category 1
    Presenter: 

    The eight extraordinary channels contain some of the most powerful means to influence our fertility and our overall health. While knowledge of these channels predates the Nei Jing, the perspective on what these channels are and what they do has evolved. While this evolution resulted in the introduction of some useful treatment strategies, it unfortunately did not retain the most important part: a fundamental understanding of these energetics. As a result, we are only tapping into a small portion of these channels’ potential.

    Outline:

    1. Understanding conception: Discussion of conception in terms of Jing Qi and Shen and applying a protocol for facilitating conception via the entrance and assimilation of the Hun and Po.
    2. Exploring the concept of Qi and why the eight extra channels are not meridians.
    3. Exploring the genesis of the eight extra channels from both structural and functional perspectives.
    4. Case study on recurrent pregnancy loss.
    5. Exploring blood physiology and misconceptions regarding Chong mai
    6. Exploring the eight extra channels from an energetic perspective and exploring how the theory is applied in multiple situations.
    7. Derivation of the eight extra channel coupled points through a 5 element mapping.
    8. Exploring diagnostic evaluation by looking, including bone structure, teeth and tongue diagnosis.
    9. Exploring diagnostic evaluation by listening and examining how personality traits can be diagnostic of eight extra channel pathology.
    10. Exploring diagnostic evaluation of the pulses with a discussion of both the standard Wang Shu He and Li Shi Zhen pulse configurations, as well as several alternate pulse configurations.
    11. Case study: Infertility in a patient with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and MTHFR polymorphism.
    12. Exploring palpation including a discussion of the triple heater, back shu points, source points, mu points, etc. and how to evaluate the dynamics of jing through palpation.
    13. Exploring needle techniques used in the treatment of the eight extraordinary channels and how different techniques can activate different aspects of the channels. 
    14. Case study of patient with amenorrhea and PCOS that conceived after not having had a menses in over 9 months.
    15. Discussion of aging and protocol for reversing damage caused by aging.
    16. Discussion and protocol for improving oocyte integrity.
    17. Discussion and protocol for prevention of aneuploidy.
    18. Discussion and protocol for the treatment of uterine polyps (includes case study).
    19. Discussion and protocol for the treatment of ovarian cysts (includes case study).
    20. Discussion and protocol for the treatment of early stage endometrial cancer (case study).
    21. Discussion and protocol for the treatment of breast cysts (includes case study).
    22. Discussion and protocols for the prevention of common causes of miscarriages.
    23. Live demonstration of intake, treatment and needle techniques.
