What you'll learn in this health class:

Traditional Chinese Healing Arts Towards Becoming a Health Coach Certification: Part 1–The Art of Healing with Food

Traditional Chinese Healing Arts Towards Becoming a Health Coach Certification is a professional program focusing on classical Chinese Herbal Medicine, Oriental Nutrition, and the Taoist Healing Arts through Movement. This is Part 1 called Healing with Foods.

Program Descriptions:

  • Introduction to Chinese Medicine & Taoism
    Chinese herbal medicine is governed by the universal principles of balance and harmony expressed in The Tao. This weekend includes an overview of the history of Chinese Medicine and begins to familiarize students with the basic terms and concepts: Five Element Theory, “Qi “ (pronounced chee) and the immune system, six divisions of Yin and Yang, four causes of disease, TCM terminology, energetic imbalances and meridians. Also, discussion of Classical Chinese.
  • Diagnosis & the Six Healing Sounds
    Herbology is the core of treatment in Chinese medicine, and energetically, practitioners look beyond the symptoms of the disease to alleviate the underlying imbalance that caused the disease. Imbalances are determined by a non-invasive diagnostic system that includes tongue reading, pulse reading, facial observations and health history evaluation. Students will gain a working familiarity with meridians and diagnostic points during a full-day hands-on workshop on Sunday. You will be introduced to the Six-Healing Sounds to clear negative emotions.
  • The Five Element Diet – Food As Medicine
    Plant medicine predates written human history as an approach to healing using herbs and foods to prevent and assist in the healing of various health conditions. Balance in a diet is unique for each person, and there is no one diet for everyone. Learn how to use whole foods “as medicine” to balance and regenerate internal organs and strengthen the immune system to help prevent disease. The Taoist way and the healing properties of whole foods, essentials of nutrition, food energetics, dietary guidelines, elimination diets, five-phase cooking and specific foods for organ imbalances.
  • Medicine Making & Recipes for Health: A Cooking Class
    Hands-on cooking class. We will be cooking together common recipes that have been used for centuries to enhance the immune system, relieve allergies, address chronic health conditions, support detoxification, and maintain overall health. In addition, we will look at the healing properties of common herbs, foods and medicinal mushrooms used for centuries to address chronic health conditions, support detoxification and maintain overall health. Topics discussed will include how to incorporate healthy foods and herbs into your diet.
  • Herbal Medicine Making: Healing Remedies, Recipes, Teas, Topicals and Tonics
    This is a hands-on workshop where the traditional preparation of herbal medicine is taught. Herbal medicine-making is a holistic art involving time-honored methods developed over the centuries into the processes used today involving both art and science. In this workshop we will learn the techniques for extracting the healing constituencies of plants in different menstruums; how to do an herb press; how to prepare herbal infusions and decoctions; how to make capsules, pills, poultices, and healing salves for external application. We will explore many resources and gain hands-on experience in making our own herbal remedies.
  • Student Clinic & Case Studies
    All of your studies will be applied in the hands-on application and the principles and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We will invite friends and family to our student clinic. We will assess each person using differential diagnosis, pulse, tongue and an extensive questionnaire to assess their health condition, emphasizing health history, and then making practical herbal, food and exercise recommendations. There will be a small group discussion of each case study.
  • Taoist Success: How to Run a Successful Practice & Graduation
    In this workshop we will be discussing how to run a successful practice. Topics discussed will be online marketing, social media, building your brand, creating a website, how to create successful wellness groups, classes and more!
