This foundation seminar will form the basis for a series of teachings on the major organ systems. In it Helen will define the three underlying patterns which are contributory factors in most clinical cases and must be treated along with the presenting problem to ensure a complete return to health:

• Accumulation Disorder
when the digestive system is overloaded or overworked.
• Qi Xu
spleen and kidney deficiency, including its hyperactive form
• Lingering Pathogenic Factor
becoming more and more common as children are given more medications, e.g. antibiotics, vaccines, and corticosteroids

Topics of the differences between diagnosing adults and children and important practical implications of treating children with both, acupuncture and Chinese herbs, are essential and will be addressed throughout the teaching.

About Helen Gordon
Helen has been in busy family practice for 20 years. Prior to her TCM training in Australia and China, she worked as a nurse and midwife in Sydney hospitals.
From a wealth of first hand experience Helen demonstrates diagnosis, the principle of treatment and practical application of TCM paediatrics in a direct and precise way. In particular, this seminar will show how the TCM view can be translated into action that accommodates a Western medicine environment.

Her ability to express the deep respect and awe for the art she practices so well inspires even seasoned practitioners to remember the magical aspect of practicing TCM.

Helen lives and works in Wollongong, Australia and offers mentorship and ongoing clinical support.
