Whether your clients are weekend warriors, amateurs or professionals, we will discuss nutritional needs, eating plans, and mind-body approaches for athletes based on the latest research.

Learn how constitutional TCM herbs and formulas can maximize recovery and performance. We will look at methods for obtaining the best results from ginseng, schizandra, astragalus, cordyceps, curcumin, and pomegranate. Best practices for herbal dispensing and communication strategies will be discussed.

Maintaining Metabolic Balance With Integrated Chinese Medicine with Misha Cohen

9:55 AM to 10:45 AM Pacific Time

The number of people in our society who suffer with type 2 diabetes, essential hypertension, elevated cholesterol, high BMI, abdominal fat, and fat in the liver is increasing exponentially. This is often characterized in Western medicine as "metabolic syndrome." Chinese medicine, along with other natural approaches, can offer support for prevention of the development of metabolic syndrome as well as reverse the effects of metabolic syndrome once it has become entrenched. In this lecture, metabolic syndrome and Chinese medicine pattern differentiation will be identified. Practices will be recommended that can help prevent development of the various components of metabolic syndrome as well as treat aspects of metabolic syndrome once it has developed.

Introduction to Cannabis Medicine from a TCM Perspective with Chad Conner

11:15 AM to 12:05 PM Pacific Time

This lecture will introduce the history of Cannabis use in China. The major therapeutic directions of the plant correlated with TCM patterns will be discussed. The endocannabinoid system will be explained followed by a discussion of the biochemical constituents of the plant. A review of the known contraindications of Cannabis will be presented. The lecture will finish with a discussion of extraction methods, quality assurance testing, and legal issues in the United States and worldwide.
