Description

There is power in taking control over your own health and treatment plans. With Chinese medicine, you can get many treatments that can help reduce inflammation and, in some cases, improve your health and wellness with your doctor’s agreement.

The difference between Western medicine and Chinese medicine is complex. Each system has its benefits and drawbacks.

People who learn about Chinese medicine often benefit from learning about the different types of naturopathic methods used to treat and care for different conditions. While Chinese medicine is certainly not a ‘cure-all’, or a fix-all’, it can be used to offer a new understanding of medical treatments.

This course will go into detail about what Chinese medicine is, how it differs from Western medicine and types of diagnosis and treatment methods that are used.

We explain the four pillars of diagnosis, how they are applied to the patient and information regarding various treatment options.

Next, we review the benefits of Chinese medicine, the spiritual components and the types of people who can use Chinese medicine and those who should avoid it.

Finally, we provide a few steps to help you select a well-trained Chinese medicine practitioner and discuss the importance of informing your general practitioner of all treatments that you use.

You Will Learn:

  • About Chinese medicine as a whole
  • How Chinese medicine compares to Western medicine
  • Who should use it and who should avoid it
  • How Chinese medicine uses alternative methods of diagnoses and treatments

The Benefits of Taking This Course:

  • You will learn about an alternative to Western medicine that has been around for thousands of years
  • You will learn about a naturopathic philosophy
  • You will learn about the health benefits of using Chinese medicine as a treatment option

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
