Chinese Medicine to Strengthen Everyone’s Health

Chinese Medicine (TCM) is effective, affordable and an established and tested practice that aims at helping people without causing them any harm. TCM does not question the western perception of the body. It draws different views and relations between the organs and the body. In order to inform and help more people to benefit from Chinese Medicine we developed the following programs for lectures and workshops:

Improve your Body Constitution based on Chinese Medicine Principles
To stay healthy we need to understand ourselves first. An essential factor to prevent disease, strengthen health and balance your body is to understand your own body first, its characteristics and how your body constitution is shaped by your genes, your way of life, and your environment. We introduce participants to a better health with:
– easy exercises
– balanced diet
– Chinese herbs everyone can use
– paths to a healthy lifestyle
To determine the individual Body Constitution type we explore each participant’s lifestyle and health condition. To embark on the path to health we provide insights on how to improve the current lifestyle to more health and balance in life. For privacy of participants we can host individual sessions.

LECTURES: Informative and Understandable

How can Chinese Medicine complement Western Medicine to minimize or eliminate side effects?
Strong cases from the field presented by our experienced practitioner to highlight how Chinese Medicine is applied side-by-side with modern medicine. Example cases may include severe cases of cancer treatment to common cases such as a flu or cold. This lecture will:
– critically review the Western treatment of common and chronic diseases

An Introduction to TCM including a TCM Diagnosis
In this lecture we will explore how a typical Chinese Medicine Diagnosis looks like and explain the coherences of meridian channels, organs and TCM Principles. One example is the Five Elements Cycle forming the basis for the relationship of organs and the required overall balance in the human body.
We will explain the following steps of a TCM diagnosis and show their importance:
– feel the pulse speed and strength
– check the tongue color and shape
– examine the symptoms and body of the patient
– discuss the health condition and overall situation of the patient:
o comprehensive view on the human being in relation to environment
o balance of the patient with family and friends
o nutrition
o environment
o lifestyle
At the end of the lecture we will provide a TCM diagnosis and individual consultation for up to 6 people. A preregistration for an individual consultation is required.

How to Leverage TCM to Prevent and Cure Flu & Coughing?
Nowadays, Western practitioners often prescribe Antibiotics to treat a cold. Prof. Paul Little commented in the BBC: “The overuse of antibiotics, particularly when they are ineffective, leads to the development of resistance and has side effects like diarrhea, rash and vomiting.”

Chinese Medicine as a Potent Alternative
Traditional Chinese Medicine is effective in treating mild forms of chest infections and coughs because of its careful differentiation of the various types of coughs. Our experienced TCM doctor will introduce the types and the root cause of a cough in more detail:
Coughs due to excessive Heat
Treated with cooling, moistening herbs and acupuncture directed at specific points on the body which clear heat from the lungs.
Coughs due to excessive Cold
Treated with warming, drying herbs and the application of moxibustion, a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy using the Mugwort herb.
Coughs caused by Wind
Treatment of a dryness cough caused by wind means to repel the dryness and to help moisten the lungs.

At the end of the lecture we will indicate unique techniques to not only fix the immediate symptoms but also to address the illness at its source in order to prevent the next flu or cold.
