Inflammatory lung and skin conditions are among the most common conditions that challenge the adaptive capacity of children. There has been an epidemic rise in inflammatory disorders that began after World War II. The accelerated pace of modern life generates a condition of excess Heat in the organism and in the world. In Western terms, this is a result of sympathetic overdrive—excess secretion of cortisol and adrenalin—that sets the stage for chronic inflammation.

Objectives

  • Learn to identify common pediatric presentations of reactive inflammation affecting physiological and Qi functions, channels and Organ Networks associated with the lungs, skin, gut and vagus neural network (parasympathetic nervous system)
  • Recognize and understand the underlying process of a healthy inflammatory response – euflammation - from Western and Chinese medicine perspectives.
  • The role of the Triple Burner (san jiao) in the functional mediation of inflammation.
  • The dynamic interaction of the Three Axes of development: the adaptive and maturation triads
  • The five phase dynamics that characterize five common patterns of inflammation in the lungs and skin
  • Learn to map a case using the principle of Five Phase Triads.
  • Using Five Phase Triad mapping, learn to formulate treatment protocols, including acupuncture, herbal formulas and nutritional supplements.

 

Outline

  • The Triple Burner system is the Developmental FU, an “invisible” organ that governs the neuro-gastro-endocrine-immune complex and the Western physiological integration with the gut microbiome and the parasympathetic/ poly-vagal nervous system.
  • The example of wei/ying qi as a microcosm of yin/yang harmonics.
  • The critical influence of environment on the process of growth and the etiology of illness
  • The role of inflammation in both health and sickness
  • Case illustration
  • The phenomenon of pediatric asthma in America: Western medical explanations
  • Current “standards of practice” for treating RAD (reactive airway disease) and “red flags” – when emergency intervention is necessary
  • Classification, etiology and clinical presentations of asthma in the context of the integrated Triple Burner - Five Phase model: the Five Triads of asthma
  • Case illustration
  • The nature and significance of the skin (couli)
  • How the skin is a reflection (microcosm) of the Triple Burner
  • Triple Burner - Five Phase Triads redux: classification and treatment of pediatric eczema according to the integrated model of the Triple Burner and Five Phases.
  • How are asthmas and eczemas are connected and how do they interact with each other?
  • Case illustration
  •  How to “map a case” in order to generate a working diagnosis and treatment strategy: additional case illustrations
  • Q&A: discussion of cases presented by participants
