Childhood Food Allergies

Course Overview

Food allergies are on the rise in children in the West. Acupuncture can be used to effectively lessen a child's reaction to an allergen and, in some cases, prevent it altogether. From the Chinese medicine perspective, the problem lies not with the food but with an underlying imbalance in the child's qi. Correcting this imbalance is the key to successful treatment. This course will guide you as to how to identify and treat the most common imbalances found.
