Known as 'Dysenteric Disorder' in traditional Chinese medicine includes both Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease, (although the focus will be on the former). The two conditions lead to ulceration of the mucosa of the gastro-intestinal tract, abdominal pains, diarrhea, and frequent bouts of rectal bleeding. It typically affects young adults in the prime of their life, and is a cause of much morbidity.

DAY TWO: ALLERGY AND AUTOIMMUNITY MASTERCLASS Part I
(i) Allergic Asthma*
Very frequently seen as part of the atopic diatheses, along with atopic eczema & allergic rhinitis, it is now estimated that one in every four children living in cities within the Western world suffers with asthma, and there is much evidence to support the fact that many people are developing increasingly more severe forms of the disease. Morbidity and mortality from this common condition remains a substantial clinical problem despite considerable funding into new drug therapies. Without question properly applied treatment with Chinese herbs has a very significant part to play in managing this distressing disease.
(ii) Allergic Rhinitis*
Just as with asthma & atopic eczema which it often accompanies, the incidence of allergic rhinitis has increased dramatically over the decades. And just as with those two conditions, Chinese medicine correctly applied can have a profound effect not only to ease the distressing symptoms but frequently to resolve the allergic disposition.
DAY THREE: ALLERGY AND AUTOIMMUNITY MASTERCLASS Part II:
(i) Inflammatory Bowel Disease*
(ii) Graves Disease*
(Hyperactivity of thyroid gland): This is an extremely common autoimmune disease and the most frequently encountered form of hyperthyroidism, affecting up to 4-5% of all women.Chinese medicine correctly applied can very often resolve this disease.
