You will learn eight formulas for the treatment of burnout due to overwork and/or stress. It is important to differentiate the personality types kidney, liver, heart and spleen. Four formulas each focus on acute and post treatment in the convalescence phase.
CFS and FMS
These two conditions combine fatigue with muscle pain and recurrent low-grade fevers and require specialized treatment. Jeremy will present special formulations for CFS and FMS, as well as specific therapeutic techniques for affected patients.
Anemia is one of the most common causes of fatigue, especially affecting women. Anemia often occurs in combination with specific associated complaints. It is crucial to carefully distinguish between them:
- Digestive weakness
- Hepatic weakness
- Blood loss + prostration
- Digestive bleeding due to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID)
- Ulcerative colitis
- Amenorrhea + malnutrition
- Postnatal fatigue and depression
Residual pathogenic factors
These follow familiar patterns, especially in Chinese medicine:
- Patients are unable or incompletely able to regain their original levels of health and energy after an initial infection or illness.
- Residual pathogens cause recurrent new illnesses
- RP patterns may follow viral infections (e.g., influenza or COVID-19) or bacterial infections (tonsillitis), fungal or protozoal infections.
- Prolonged fatigue following infection.
Jeremy will discuss a number of formulations for both the acute and remission phases of residual pathogenic patterns
Each of these four disease patterns will be discussed according to the Integrative Chinese Medicine approach:
Conventional therapy and its limitations
Syndromes of Integrative Chinese Medicine
Western medicinal plants and formulations
Study situation and phytopharmacology
Combination of phytotherapy and drug treatment
- Jeremy will discuss 3 Case histories in detail
