Auto-Immunity & Allergy Masterclass
Chicago, 16th & 17th November 2019
This weekend offers the opportunity to participate in Mazin Al-Khafaji's Masterclass in Auto Immune and Allergic Disease.
Hosted at National University of Health Sciences Chicago, Mazin's Masterclass is offered as an additional Module to the certification course, and additional spaces are open on a first come fist serve basis to students not currently sitting the year long diploma.
(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 reflects his own long and arduous journey through Chinese Medicine and condenses personal insights accumulated over 30 plus years of study and clinical practice - all presented in a comprehensive and relevant yet incredibly humble way.
