X-tra focus on the Respiratory System and Large Intestine Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June 2019

The “X-TRA focus on…” series of CPD courses offered by Dougans International (Inge Dougans) is open for all therapists and practitioners who wish to broaden their pathophysiological knowledge using an ancient Chinese philosophical approach by incorporating the Meridians and the Five Elements in combination with Western observations and views.

X-tra Focus on the Respiratory System

Visual assessments of the feet, face, hands and body that can be associated with the Respiratory System are generic and can be used by all therapists and practitioners as part of a treatment protocol.

The X-TRA focus on the Respiratory System CPD course will explore each respiratory medical condition and correlate these conditions to specific meridians and their corresponding organs. An understanding the philosophy of the Meridians and the Five Elements will ultimately assist the therapist or practitioner in identifying the underlying root cause of any respiratory condition, enabling a more precise treatment.

Discussing, for example, the Stomach Meridians, will involve an understanding of the acid/alkaline balance within the body and the influence this sensitive balance can have on microorganisms, oxygen, nitric oxide, viruses and germs in the respiratory system. The Stomach Meridians are furthermore related to the upper respiratory tract and associated conditions, as well as asthma, bronchitis and diaphragm conditions.

This course will further demonstrate how the Liver Meridians are associated with pneumonia, tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis, as well as how the Kidney Meridians are linked to chronic lung disease, pulmonary embolism and oedema. Respiratory conditions associated with the Lung and Colon Meridians will also be discussed, as well as those associated with the Bladder Meridians.

Incorporating the philosophies of the Five Elements, this course will concentrate on the Metal Element that relates to vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes, and links the respiratory system to skin conditions. Muscles associated with the respiratory system will also be discussed as part of a treatment protocol.

X-tra Focus on the Large Intestine (Colon)

Visual assessments that can be associated with the large intestine are generic and can be used by all therapists and practitioners as part of a treatment protocol.

The X-TRA focus on the Large Intestine (Colon) CPD course will guide the participant through each medical condition of the large intestine and correlate these conditions to specific meridians and their corresponding organs. An understanding the philosophy of the Meridians and the Five Elements will ultimately assist the therapist or practitioner in identifying the underlying root cause of any large intestinal condition, enabling a more precise treatment.

Some interesting topics will be discussed, for example, the constitution of healthy intestinal flora using an analogy of garden compost to the human digestive system. Anything that was once alive can be eaten and converted into energy (Chi’), yet the balance of carbon, oxygen and nitrogen are just as important in our internal system as that of garden compost. The harmful development of microorganisms within acidic environments, as well the need for friendly bacteria (lactobacillus acidophilus), will be debated using the Five Elements and the Meridians as assessment tools.

Incorporating the philosophies of the Five Elements, this course will concentrate on the Metal Element that relates to vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. The Fire and Water Elements will also be discussed linking these to the intestinal conditions such as haemorrhoids and diarrhoea.

The course has a practical component that is suitable for all health professions wishing to use the Meridians as a quick and effective practical treatment.
