Course description

The school of heat illnesses (wen bing) is continuously gaining importance. Our lifestyle and everyday contact with environmental toxins promote heat illnesses. In addition, alcohol, cigarettes, coffee and sugar, as well as a poor and unbalanced diet caused by poverty or an irregular lifestyle, favour the development of heat.

Many, if not most, autoimmune diseases are associated with signs of heat, and the number of patients with such conditions is increasing every year. Some examples are rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis and also Sjögren's syndrome. No wonder that the school of heat disorders is now of great importance in our daily practice.

Course language: German
Prerequisite: knowledge of TCM herbal medicine

Corona situation: Registered persons receive a notification two weeks before the seminar whether the event can take place.
