Quick: name a common condition that affects over 33 million people annually? And that impacts all genders and races: young and old alike.
If you guessed sinusitis you’re correct! If you have a general practice, then there’s no question that you’ll encounter acute and chronic rhinitis and sinusitis. We might call this, the People’s Disease.
These ubiquitous conditions while usually not life threatening (but they can be! We’ll cover red flags too), seriously compromise people’s well being.
Go beyond only treating branch symptoms with prepared formulas off the shelf. Learn to assess and treat patients based on their complexion and presentation. Learn to improve their constitution, using classical formulas that treat the root and the branch. And for those of you who practice Telehealth, making this Telehealth ready!
In this real time event we will explore:
- Acute and chronic rhinitis: Almost the same, but not quite
- Acute and chronic sinusitis: Strategies for thinking about COVID-related anosmia
- Complex combined excess/deficient patterns
- Unexpected applications of traditional formulas
- Fun topical inhalants
