Traditional Asian Tongue Diagnosis
1 - 3 p.m.
What can your tongue tell you? Traditional Asian medicine regards external appearance as a reflection of the body's internal processes. Tongue diagnosis has been a principle diagnostic tool in Asian medicine since as far back as the Shang Dynasty (16thC. BC - 1066 BC). The tongue's shape, colour and coating reveal the state of the internal organs.
Preventing and Managing Diabetes with Naturopathic Medicine
1:30 - 2:30 p.m.
Health Canada reports two million people in Canada have diabetes, and another one million are undiagnosed. This session, led by 4th year clinic interns, is designed to help attendees learn how diet, exercise and lifestyle can help ward off or manage diabetes. Naturopathic modalities are effective in helping those prone to or living with diabetes, and include lifestyle counselling, Asian medicine, clinical nutrition and homeopathy.
Managing Stress and Adrenal Function with Naturopathic Medicine
2:45 - 3:45 p.m.
Chronic, low-level stress is common in today's society. Over time, stress exhausts your body, contributing to gland imbalances, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, cancer, immune suppression, colds/flu, anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, PMS, skin problems and fatigue. In this session, you'll discover how naturopathic medicine can help you reduce and manage the stress in your life.
Also, participate in acupuncture demonstrations, clinic and garden tours and enjoy other information displays!
