Most patients—whether male or female, young or old—sometimes suffer from digestive complaints. Because the spleen and stomach are the root of the engenderment of qi and blood govern the upbearing and downbearing of the body’s qi mechanism, if the spleen and stomach lose their harmony, this can affect any of the other viscera and bowels, and tissues or functions in the body. For this reason, it’s almost always appropriate to begin a patient’s treatment by correcting any digestive complaints or irregularities.
This course covers:
- More than 30 specific digestive disorders, including: abdominal distention; abdominal pain, borborygmus; lack of appetite; hemafecia, postprandial fatigue; excessive hunger; clamoring stomach; burping and belching; acid regurgitation, nausea and vomiting; hiccups, diarrhea, and dysentery; constipation; irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, colitis; diverticulitis; ulcers; hypoglycemia; candidiasis; parasites; food allergies; leaky gut syndrome; gu worms
- Bob’s most useful Chinese medicinal formulas for Western GI complaints
- On-the-spot client intake for a patient with irritable bowel syndrome
