Medicinal Mushrooms in the Treatment of Allergies, Asthma and Autoimmune Disease

July 20, 2016

For centuries, medicinal mushrooms have been regarded in Chinese medicine as supreme health tonics. As the West catches on, practitioners have an increasing number of choices of mushrooms sources, yet they remain unaware of import quality and efficacy considerations. Thousands of scientific studies demonstrate their unmatched ability to support immunity, cardiovascular health, blood sugar, sexual function and energy. In numerous experiments and clinical trials, mushrooms have also demonstrated antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic actions. It might surprise you to learn that in addition to all of these beneficial properties, medicinal mushrooms can be an effective treatment for allergies, other respiratory and autoimmune diseases.

Natural Alternatives to NSAIDs

June 15, 2016 (9 - 10am)

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs are prescribed for pain management and are also available over-the-counter. It’s a well-known fact that although NSAIDs are helpful when it comes to pain management, they can also increase the risk of developing gastrointestinal bleeding and other GI complications. NSAIDS can lead to heart attack and stroke. They also are known to interfere with kidney function. The most popular NSAIDs include aspirin and ibuprofen and Celebrex.

A Consumer Products Safety Commission survey estimates more than 78,000 patients a year go to emergency rooms for Tylenol (acetaminophen) overdoses, with about 30 percent accidentally taking too much, the study found. (propublica) Tylenol can be toxic to the liver, and may precipitate acute biliary pain and cholestasis. Gastrointestinal side effects include nausea and vomiting.

Opioids which includes all drugs with morphine-like effects, including opiates (morphine, codeine), semi-synthetic opioids derived from opiates (such as heroin, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone, and oxymorphone), and synthetic opioids which are not derived from opiates (such as fentanyl, buprenorphine, and methadone). All opioids, are considered drugs of high abuse potential. Opioids can slow or stop breathing and can lead to addiction. Side effects of Vicodin (hydrocodone plus Tylenol), the most commonly prescribed opioid in North California, can cause drowsiness, upset stomach, constipation, headache, and blurred vision.

Herbalist Andrew Gaeddert will discuss the dangers of pharmaceutical analgesics, important public health information regarding low dose aspirin used for heart health, and methadone, a drug increasingly used for pain control. We will also discuss Channel Flow®, a potent pain-relieving herbal formula with analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. Andrew will review effective protocols for patients with osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, athletic injury, and post-surgical pain. Case studies will be presented.

Treating Fibromyalgia with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs- rebroadcast

It is estimated that five million Americans suffer from Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FM).

Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. Symptoms sometimes can begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.

Chinese Medicine and Weight Management Webinar

January 20, 2016 (9 - 10am)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that over one-third of U.S. adults (about 97 million) are overweight. Even more disturbing, this number is projected to grow to 42% by 2030. Many modern methods of weight management are failing the general public. Traditional Chinese Medicine, with 5,000 years of experience, offers a hopeful alternative. Modern medical research into the efficacy of Chinese Medicine for weight loss suggests that its approach can inhibit fat production, enhance intestinal peristalsis to increase stool clearance, improve blood circulation, and speed up the metabolism.

Treating Pain with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs Part 4: Tips from the Masters

By using traditional methods of diagnosis, differentiation and treatment selection, authentic Chinese medicine strives to combine the treatment of the root cause as well as the symptoms. The insertion of needles and the dispensing of herbs is the final act in a refined process of diagnosis and evaluation.

Alternatives to Asian Patent Medicines

September 23, 2015 (9 - 10am)

Asian patent medicines include herbs, plants, animal parts and minerals which are formulated into tablets, pills, or liquids to make them easier to use. This branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine can be an extremely effective tool to keep one and one’s patients healthy. However, many patent medicines manufactured in Asian countries—particularly China and India—contain toxic ingredients, such as heavy metals, as well as prescription drugs or unapproved ingredients that may or may not be identified on the label. When analyzed, a large number of these medicines are found to contain compounds that are not listed under ingredients which may be dangerous. Scientists have found drugs like ephedrine, chlorpheniramine, methyltestosterone and phenacetin.
