What is the objective?
In this course, practitioners will learn the TCM profile of 10 mushrooms and the best strategy to use mushroom nutrition to complement acupuncture according to TCM differential diagnosis.
TCM practitioners are increasing faced with elderly clients that require simple solutions to their health care requirements. While acupuncture can address most neuromuscular conditions that reduce pain, many clients can also benefit from mushroom nutrition where TCM formulas are not available or prohibitive due to lack of herbs.
The mushrooms Yun Zhi (Coriolus versicolor) and Hou Tou Gu (Hericium erinaceus) have played a role in TCM formulas focused on the aging process. TCM concepts such as humoral immune response (weiqi) and anti-aging brain response (bu nao) are attributed to these mushrooms.
