ECLECTIC MEDICINE CERTIFICATION

This is a branch of Natural Medicine which makes use of the best non-patented or manufactured remedies and techniques. The term was coined by Constantine Samuel Rafinesque (1784 to 1841), a physician living among the Native Americans, and observing their use of medicinal plants and natural techniques. He coined the word "eclectic" to refer to those physicians who adopted in practice whatever was found to be beneficial to their patients. The Eclectics were doctors with a philosophy in "alignment with nature," learning from and using concepts from other schools, and opposing the practices of bleeding, purging and use of mecuricals common among the "regular" doctors of that time.
With increasing high cost and control of manufactured natural remedies successful eclectic remedies techniques is most relevant for the survival of your practice.

AROMATHERAPEUTIC- RAIN DROP TECHNIQUE

(Beautiful art of de-stressing bringing Balance)

“One of the safest, non-invasive technique available for spinal health”-Raindrop technique,” It is based a technique of applying a sequence of highly anti-microbial essential oils along the spine and back. The oils are dispersed like little drops of rain from a height of about six inches above the back and lightly massage along the Vertebrae and back muscles. Medical research is showing that certain microorganisms lodged alongside the spine and contribute to spinal health challenges, such as inflammation and spinal pain. In 1982 a research study by Pincott and Taff showed that vaccines, such as the oral poliomyelitis, made from live viruses have been linked to spinal problems and scoliosis. Research in 2001, at the Royal Orthopedic Hospital in Birmingham, England, found that 53% of patients with severe sciatica tested positive to chronic low grade bacterial infectious microorganisms are a contributing factor for spinal pain and inflammation.
Raindrop technique is praised as a powerful, noninvasive tool to assist and ameliorate spinal ill health, facilitates tissue cleansing, trauma and emotional release.


Most Important Benifits:
• Reduction and elimination of back pain
• Relief of tension and headaches
• Relaxation and invigoration
• Increase energy level and stamina
• Increase in immune function
• Improve attention and concentration
• Elevation of mood and balance emotion


Learn this powerful technique in a two day workshop and apply it in our practice by Monday morning. Please drink (6-8 glasses of water during the class come with clipped nails, and bring 2-3 large towels, one sheet and raindrop kit.

HOMEOPATHIC TONGUE DIAGNOSIS

Part I & Part II

One of the first places that information can be obtained about the general health of the body is the tongue. Signs of imbalances in other body organs or tissues for example the skin, hair nails can only be detected after weeks or even months of imbalances, but with tongue diagnosis the imbalances can be detected in as little as twenty four hours. Tongue diagnosis is fast, accurate, safe noninvasive and easy to learn.
After detecting and interpretation tongue of mineral shifts in the cells and the tissues, homeopathic biochemical minerals are administered to re-established balance in the cells and restore health. Learn this simple yet powerful diagnostic and mineral balancing technique in two days and add a new dimension to your practice.

CARDIOVASCULAR RISK ASSESSMENT TECHNIQUES

The electro cardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a clinical tool which measures the quantity and quality of electrical impulses traveling the cardiac conduction system and myocardium. Only a small quantity of electrical current is generated by the heart and considerable amplification must be employed since the EKG detects only the final sum of currents. Since cardio vascular diseases and in particular heart disease is the number one cause of death and hospitalization, Natural Medicine professionals must be competent in and use EKG as part of the complete assessment.

In this hand on course you will learn how to analyze the patient and interpret the EKG and other cardiovascular assessment techniques. It provides the basic instructions on interpreting the EKG... it covers electrical system of the heart and how it is recorded with an EKG machine. You will learn what the lines on the EKG tell you about the heart, learn how to recognize a heart attack, irregular rhythm, too fast or too slow rhythm, lethal rhythm such as ventricular fibrillation, blocks of heart nerve system known as bundle blocks, first degree heart blocks, second degree heart blocks, third degree heart blocks, heart enlargement, the axis of the heart, P waves, QRS complex, ST segments, T waves and other information concerning the EKG and most importantly the heart variability rate.
