About the Course
As practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), we must bridge the gap between TCM and Western biomedicine. With a clear understanding of healthy physiology according to TCM, we can better interpret common symptoms and biomedicine diagnoses through a TCM lens. Then we must address the source of the problem by reestablishing the body’s healthy Qi cycle. This course will bridge that gap and clarify your understanding of respiratory and ENT physiology, disease, and treatment with TCM.
In this course, students will learn how to diagnose and treat respiratory and ear, nose, and throat (ENT) issues commonly seen in a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) clinic. This includes the following:
common respiratory symptoms like shortness of breath, cough, chest pain or tightness, enuresis
airway respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
inflammatory respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, influenza, sarcoidosis
diseases that affect pulmonary blood circulation, including pulmonary hypertension
common ENT symptoms of ear pain, tinnitus, nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, sore throat
ENT disorders such as chronic ear infection, vertigo, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis
Diagnosis techniques will include pulse and tongue analysis. Treatment modalities will follow Dr. Ching Ching Chi’s Traditional Chinese Medicine Unified Practice Method, which includes scalp and body acupuncture protocols, herbal formula combinations, as well as recommended dietary and lifestyle changes. Dr. Chi will use case studies from her clinical experience to discuss treatment efficacy.
