This medical qi gong introduces the theory and practice of the healing sounds, and the five-element and microcosmic orbit meditations.

The healing sounds are one of the oldest qi gong. Two significant Chinese medical practitioners recommended practicing them: Sun Si-Miao and Tao Hongjing. This practice clears the organs and channels from heat, stress, blockages and stagnations, as well as energizes the organs. The healing sounds follow the creation cycle flow. The healing sounds transform unfavorable emotions to their natural virtues. The theory of emotions is based on Chapter 5 of the Sun Wen: The Manifestation of Yin and yang from the Macrocosm and the Microcosm. You will learn reducing and reinforcing methods. This practice is simple to learn and easy and fun to practice. The healing sounds can be practiced sitting and standing.

The five-element meditation follows the controlling cycle of the five elements to harmonize the organs and emotions, and increase the qi in the organs. The microcosmic orbit is the foundation meditation. The orbit enhances the flow of qi in the Ren and Du channels, the major channels that flow up the back and down the front of the body. These two channels have a strong influence on all the channels in the body. This meditation is part of the ancient practice of Dao Yin (Qi Gong). It has been used to obtain the ancient practice of harmony, balance and vitality, and to rejuvenate the body. This inner meditation compliments any exercise and cultivation practice.

Dr. David Twicken, DOM, L.Ac. A faculty member at Emperors College since 1994, David has taught Acupuncture courses, Philosophy of Oriental Medicine, Tai Chi Chuan, Medical Qi Gong, Feng Shui, I Ching, Chinese Astrology, Medical History, and is a clinic supervisor. David specializes in the Taoist Arts and has written a variety of books, including Treasures of Tao, Feng Shui, Chinese Astrology, Introduction to Qi Men Dun Jia, Chinese Medical Astrology, I Ching Acupuncture: The Balance Method, The Eight Extraordinary Channels, A Manual for Clinical Applications and Nei Dan Inner Mediation. His new book: The Divergent Channels, will be released in July 2014. David teaches Taoist Arts internationally and is in private practice in Los Angeles, California.

TOXICOLOGY & TCM
Toxicology is a branch of medicine on the study of the adverse effects of chemicals on living organisms. It is the study of symptoms, mechanisms, treatments and detection of poisoning especially with humans. In this course, our aim is to identify the amount of significant toxicities in four different areas, namely: In our environment, in our water, in our foods, and in our herbs. As well as the dangers that it process and ways of avoidance.
In addition, the California Department of Health services has taken a study to screen imported patent medicines for heavy metals, drugs and chemicals. The results will be summarized to educate the practitioners on the potential dangers of some of the imported patent medicines and to provide information to the industry, and the medical community so that they can make intelligent and objective decisions.

HERB/DRUG INTERACTION
Historically, herbs and drugs have been two very different treatments. In recent years the line that separates both have been crossed with the merging of the two treatment modalities. As a result the patient may be taken multiple drugs, herbs and vitamins concurrently. In this course, we will present the effects of herb herb, drug drug and drug herb interactions. And whether the combination of these interactions will lead to adverse reactions or unwanted side effects, with the recognition of potential interactions and taking precautions and proper actions.
In addition to presenting the negative herb/drug interactions, we will also present the positive herb/drug interactions and its benefits.

Zee Lo, L.Ac., O.M.D., Ph.D. is the first alumni of 1986 from Emperor’s college. Formerly trained in China, he speaks fluent Chinese and English. He presently specializes in the area of anti-aging. In addition to being a CEU provider for over 25 years and a CA state tutorial supervisor, he has also medically treated numerous martial arts masters, Hollywood stars and professional athletes.

From the course discussion we will look at the shen evaluation procedure and the treatment planning and treatment details. Understanding the shen energy patterns and shen activities are directly Related in the clinic treatment and the results.
