Treating Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Chinese Medicine
Approved for 2 CEUs via NCCAOM, Florida, and Texas. *This course package consolidates previous courses (see description for details).
As of January 1, 2022, this course is not approved by the California Acupuncture Board.
In this 2-part course, Bob Flaws presents two digestive disorders commonly seen in the modern clinic: GERD (Gastro-esophageal Reflux Disorder) and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Both GERD and IBS are pathologies that typically respond well to Chinese medicine.
Part 1 of this course asks "What is GERD and who does it affect?" This class teaches participants basic western medical diagnosis and treatment; Chinese medical disease categorization and mechanisms, including causes; treatment based on pattern discrimination; and effective acupuncture, medicinals, and formulas for the treatment of GERD.
In Part 2 of this course, participants are introduced to IBS, or allergic or mucus colitis. The good news is that there’s only one pattern seen in most IBS cases. If clinicians understand this pattern, then the condition is relatively simple to treat. In this class, Bob presents this pattern and its most common complications, and how to treat it using acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and diet and lifestyle modification. While not a silver bullet, participants are presented with a specific formula that has proven to be extremely effective in treating IBS.
