Finishing the Battle: Clinical Perspectives on
the Treatment of Long Covid
Effective diagnosis in Ancient Chinese Medicine rests upon the clear appraisal of the nature and relative location of the struggle between vital and pathogenic forces. Like all battles, this unfolding is largely determined by the energetic terrain within the body where it takes place.
In this live session, we will examine key classical perspectives on infectious disease and the mechanisms behind the widespread development of ‘long Covid’. We will begin by reframing the patient’s presentation as a reflection of the strength of their vital energy and learn to work with the immune system in its ongoing attempt to restore integrity under the stress of a stubborn and highly pernicious pathogen.
Clear, clinically relevant information will be provided to help practitioners help their patients presenting with symptoms of Long Covid.
In this real time event we will discuss
- Better understand the infectious nature of the SARS Covid-19 virus according to the traditional diagnostic models of the Six Phases and Three Burners
- Make sense of seemingly unrelated symptoms of long Covid
- Decide on an appropriate direction of treatment to work with the body’s immune response
- Become familiar with basic herbs and strategies to encourage resolution and limit localized symptoms of inflammation
Effective treatment relies upon the clear appraisal of the nature and relative location of the struggle between vital and pathogenic forces
