Significantly simplify the diagnosis and treatment of your most complex patients with fibromyalgia and autoimmune conditions. This seminar, originally offered in late Winter 2018, has helped many practitioners navigate the diagnosis and treatment of these complex patients and obtain outstanding results. Now offered as a recorded seminar, the content of this course focuses on organizing complex information through simplifying diagnosis and putting these conditions into specific stages, and then applying herbal medicine, Qigong, and acupuncture for each stage. You will never have seen this information presented in a more clear and rational way. Please note, this seminar is primarily herbal medicine and Qigong. Some acupuncture is presented.
