About the Seminar
The theoretical part of the seminar will utilize traditional Yin-Yang, Five Phase Element and Six Conformation symbolism as well as their relevance for the wuyun liuqi system of seasonal energetics to explain the interrelation of viral outbreaks and specific climate fluctuations. Furthermore, the importance of zhengqi (righteous qi) in the Chinese medicine understanding of the body’s immune response to inflammatory processes will be highlighted.
In addition, a historical excursion into Chinese medicine approaches to epidemics will be provided by drawing on textual evidence from the Huangdi neijing, Shanghan zabing lun, Piwei lun, Wenyi lun and other classical texts. The therapeutic part of the seminar will focus on introducing single herbs researched for their anti-viral effect, as well as their traditional usage in formulas that have been found useful in the treatment of a variety of viral diseases by the instructor during three decades in clinical practice. Specific case studies for various acute and chronic viral diseases will be presented.
In addition, suitable acupuncture points will be discussed, with a particular focus on the shaoyang and jueyin channel systems, which have been especially affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Heiner has written, synthesized research, and spoken widely about COVID-19 and coronavirus.
