Insights And Reflections From Mazin's Practice

This weekend offers the opportunity to participate in Mazin Al-Khafaji's Masterclass in Auto Immune and Allergic Disease.

Hosted at the Literaturhaus in Munich, Germany, Mazin's Masterclass is offered as an additional Module to the Diploma Course, and spaces are open on a first come first serve basis. We open registration to present Munich Diploma Course participants first, but after April 15th we will open it to other practitioners too.

Day One: Final Examination:

In order to achieve certification for the Diploma Course students must first sit and pass the final examination. The final examination is held in two parts over one day.

Certification includes an automatic 2 year membership to the Register of Chinese Medicine Dermatologists for successful participants which is accessible to the public and refers patients to qualified practitioners worldwide.

Day Two & Three: Allergy And Autoimmune Masterclass

(i) Allergic Asthma*

Very frequently seen in the clinic as part of the atopic diatheses, along with atopic eczema & allergic rhinitis, it is now estimated that one in every four children living in cities within the Western world suffers with asthma, and there is much evidence to support the fact that many people are developing increasingly more severe forms of the disease. Morbidity and mortality from this common condition remains a substantial clinical problem despite considerable funding into new drug therapies. Without question properly applied treatment with Chinese herb medicines has a very significant part to play in managing this distressing disease.

(ii) Allergic Rhinitis*

Just as with asthma & atopic eczema, which it often accompanies, the incidence of allergic rhinitis has increased dramatically over recent decades. And just as with those two conditions, Chinese medicine correctly applied can have a profound effect not only to ease the distressing symptoms, but also frequently to resolve the allergic disposition.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease*

Known by several names in traditional Chinese medicine including 'Dysenteric Disorder' and ‘Intermittent Dysentery’, inflammatory bowel diseases includes both Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease, (although the focus will be on the former). The two conditions lead to ulceration of the mucosa of the gastro-intestinal tract, abdominal pains, diarrhoea, and frequent bouts of rectal bleeding. These common diseases, typically affects young adults in the prime of their life, and is a cause of much morbidity.

Using tried and tested strategies of treatment with Chinese medicine, including internal prescriptions, suppositories and herbal enemas, a very significant number of patients can be stabilised and sent into prolonged remission.

* The following will be covered - Overview, common and uncommon clinical features, differential diagnosis from other conditions that may mimic, patho-mechanism & aetiology.

Traditional Chinese medicine pattern differentiation with practical clinical relevant treatment principles, suggested formulae and modifications.

Numerous case examples will also be presented to illustrate in great detail common approaches to treatment, how the prescription is modified to take account of the changed circumstances as the patient improves, and finally how consolidation is achieved.

Mazin's teaching is firmly rooted in real life experience and application of herbal medicine derived from his clinical work at Avicenna in Hove, UK over the past 30 years. For many, completing Mazin's course and mastering the material he teaches has become the missing link that changes their practice forever, and leads them to achieve dramatic and life changing results for their patients.

Since its inception in 2005, the course has become internationally accredited, and a whole generation of over 700 doctors and herbal practitioners from many countries all over the world have travelled to London and various locations in the USA and studied for Mazin's Dermatology Diploma, and many have come twice, or even three times!

Skin disorders in their various forms are amongst the commonest diseases suffered by mankind, accounting for no less than 20% of all visits to outpatient departments in the Western world.

Chinese medicine has a very significant role to play in treating the widest range of such conditions (particularly chronic disorders such as atopic eczema and psoriasis that prove so difficult to manage satisfactorily with biomedicine), and yet despite this fact, many people practicing Chinese medicine do not achieve optimal results in this field due to lack of specialist training and clinical experience.

“To be able to do this using centuries of knowledge and a few herbs is in itself humbling and inspiring. You are a truly great teacher to continue this traditional knowledge.”

Mazin's teaching reflects his own long and arduous journey through Chinese Medicine and condenses personal insights accumulated over 40 plus years of study and clinical practice - all presented in a comprehensive and relevant yet incredibly humble way.
