Treating Covid-19 Symptoms With Chinese Medicine

December 6

Because of TCM’s holistic understanding of energy, meridians, and the mind-body-spirit connection, acupuncturists and functional medicine doctors are uniquely positioned to make a real impact on health and well-being during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In this online training, Grand Master Nan Lu will share a complete treatment protocol that effectively prevents and treats COVID-19 symptoms.

In addition to teaching immune system theory, specific acupuncture points, and supportive herbal protocols, Dr. Lu will share self-care techniques and nutrition that optimize both innate and adaptive immune system function.

You’ll learn how to maximize vaccination’s benefits and release its side-effects, as well as address “long-haul” COVID-19 symptoms. Finally, Dr. Lu will offer his thoughts on understanding the immune system, COVID-19, health, and life from a mind-body-spirit perspective. The practitioner can use these insights to not only guide the patient back to true well-being but also maintain his or her own wellness during the pandemic.


Session Dates: Sunday October 24th at 7:30 PM (ET) and each Sunday and Tuesday for 4 weeks. Sessions last 90 minutes.

(Oct. 24, 26, 31) (Nov. 2, 7 ,9, 14, 16)
