As Chinese Medicine Practitioners, we know that the Earth element is of utmost importance for the generation of Qi, Blood and Fluids and that our entire wellbeing depends on it.
This is no different in Oncology: since chemo causes severe disruption of the Qi-mechanism of Earth, it is no surprise that many of the side effects of regular cancer treatments are related to digestion. A well-regulated up-and-down movement of the Spleen/Stomach is critical for our oncology patients to recover their vitality.
Li Dong-Yuan, the founder of the Earth School, positioned the Earth element in the centre with the other elements surrounding it. He emphasised how the harmonious ascending and descending of the Spleen and Stomach is a prerequisite for the proper functioning of the other Zang.
In this course, Drs. Martine Cornelissen shares her clinical experience of treating Digestive issues in Oncology. She has been researching and working in the Chinese Medicine Oncology-field for over 15 years.
In this 2.5-hours lecture, she shares her perspectives on restoring the correct movements of the Spleen and Stomach, thereby treating nausea & vomiting, constipation, diarrhoea, tongue-& mouth ulcers, as well as the ‘digestion’ of the two most critical psycho-emotional aspects of a cancer diagnosis utilizing classical Acupuncture point combinations and classical Chinese herbal formulas.
