Practical Orientation

What does Chinese medicine have to offer in the way of improving both brain function and gut function? In this course you will learn exactly that, along with the functional neuroanatomy and neuroscience of the brain’s top-down modulation of gut function, and the involvement of the autonomic nervous system in digestive health. The connection between the autonomic nervous system and Ying-Wei Disharmonies will be explained in the context of gut dysfunction. The use of acupuncture from a theoretical and modern neuroscience perspective will be provided. Participants will learn functional bedside examination techniques to assess patient’s autonomic nervous system integrity as it relates to digestive function.
