RCHM – Treating Digestive Diseases (gut dysbiosis, SIBO and IBS) with Chinese Herbal Medicine

7 Hours CPD

About the course

Digestive conditions are possibly the most common complaints that practitioners encounter in their clinics, yet they can be notoriously difficult to treat successfully.

Digestive conditions are possibly the most common complaints that practitioners encounter in their clinics, yet they can be notoriously difficult to treat successfully.  This highly useful day will cover topics including:

  • An overview of the Chinese Medicine approach to digestive health and disease.
  • An overview to the microbiome – drawing parallels between recent scientific discoveries and traditional perspectives on digestion.

Diagnosis and treatment of common functional digestive issues such as:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Intestinal Dysbiosis
  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
  • Coeliac Disease and Non Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity
  • Leaky Gut and Intestinal Permeability
  • Multiple food intolerance’s
  • Dietary considerations in dealing with digestive complaints.
This course aims to enable practitioners to confidently diagnose and treat some of the most prevalent digestive complaints seen today which often are poorly addressed in the classical texts and modern textbooks.

In addition it is anticipated that you will gain confidence in your practice as a result of attending the seminar/s. The RCHM aims to build up a practitioner network of nurturing peer support from the seminar series.

The course has been uniquely devised for practising and final year therapists of all disciplines who hold professional insurances that will cover them for the use of herbs within their scope of practice, and who have an interest in developing and enhancing their clinical skills.

Seminars are open to all RCHM members (all categories) and graduates of accredited herbal courses.

  • Refreshments and lunch sadly are not provided.
  • You will need to bring a pen or pencil, we will be providing everything else; full colour course notes, all of the training equipment etc.
  • As a participant you must have a sound working knowledge of Chinese Herbal Medicine.
  • There is no formal assessment, but a quiz style knowledge check at the end of the day will allow practitioners to check their own knowledge from each day.
  • Supporting material and PDF files for the lecture slides will be available to all participants electronically via Moodle upon full payment for each day.
