Online-Course: The Integrated Treatment of Respiratory Disorders with Acupuncture, Essential Oils and Herbs
Peter Holmes, LAc, MH, Santa Rosa/USA – German translator: Daniela Henning
26.11.21 bis 06.12.21

Course description of the online-course (with zoom)

What makes essential oils invaluable for treating respiratory conditions?

  • Their ability to treat infections directly (antiviral, antibacterial, etc. actions) and boost immune Wei Qi and Jing Qi functions as well.
  • They can be used with several different delivery methods, topical and internal (including on points), making treatment highly effective.
  • They can quickly go to the root of emotional and stress-related disorders that disrupt immunity.
  • Because they cross the blood-brain barrier, essential oils are highly neuroactive and able to quickly modulate immune peptides.

This unique workshop will include …

  • The clinically useful differentiation of respiratory conditions into intrinsic, allergic and infectious types of disorders.
  • Matching up viral and bacterial respiratory infections with Lung patterns.
  • Pattern differentiation and treatment of major respiratory disorders, including upper respiratory infection, allergic rhinitis, influenza, RSV and viral pneumonia, bronchial asthma, and acute and chronic bronchitis.
  • Using essential oils (with specific delivery methods), herbs and acupuncture protocols for each disease and pattern discussed.
  • Using six-condition diagnosis to quickly establish any Lung pattern.
  • The best oils, herbs and points for rapid relief of key symptoms, such as cough, dyspnea and chest oppression – with clinical differentiation.
