The human basic “Constitution” is transmitted by the parental essences (Jing). In the pre-natal stage, the constitution will influence the preferential development of specific organ systems, thus defining the physiology and the morphology of the person.

Additionally, the constitution (Jing & Zong Qi) will predispose the development of a specific "Temperament". Together with post-natal conditioning and personal life experiences the constitution and the temperament are responsible for the formation of individual belief systems and the psycho-emotional expressions of a person.

Goals and Outlines

  • Objective versus subjective reality
  • Components of the Belief systems
  • Constitutional energies: Jing and Zong Qi
  • Foundation of belief mechanisms: Constitution - Temperament - Behavior
  • Physical development and the dissemination of the constitutional energy
  • Role of the Extraordinary vessels
  • Constitution and Morphology: Specific influence of each constitution on the physical, energetic and psychological expressions of the individual
  • The five archetypes: identification (face, body and hands), appearance and psychology; related Zang-fu disharmony patterns; psycho-emotional dysfunctions and specific acupuncture therapeutic protocols.
  • Clinical examples

    Category 1
    Pending: 
    Presenter: 
    Estrogen detoxification is taught as phase 1, 2 and 3 but should be addressed in the reverse order. Phases 1 and 2 occur in the liver and are known as estrogen metabolism. Once water soluble, estrogen must leave the cell and enter phase 3 detoxification. A healthy metabolism shunts estrogen into 2-OH and then through methylation via COMT into 2-methoxy for proper disposal from the body.

    • Understand how estrogen (endogenous or exogenous) moves through phase 1, 2 and 3 detoxification
    • Review the genetic snps and enzymes involved in each phase in order to optimize clearance and reduce risks/symptoms
    • Discuss the microbiome and estrobolome and its influence on estrogen clearance
    • Discuss food sources and natural treatments that have been shown in the literature to improve estrogen metabolism outcomes through the different phases.

    Acupuncture is a popular treatment for many people undergoing, or planning on undergoing, IVF or assisted reproduction. Some recent systematic reviews/meta-analysis have suggested that acupuncture may not be effective in improving pregnancy rates and live births.

    To assist with being able to understand why systematic reviews and meta-analysis come to different conclusions we will also cover an introduction on what happens during a systematic review, why and how we do a meta-analysis and how to interpret the results.

    Course Outline:

    • Understand how a systematic review is conducted
    • Be able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a systematic review
    • Understand what happens during a meta-analysis and how to interpret the outcomes
    • Identify different components of an acupuncture ‘dose’ and how these contribute to fertility outcomes
