If you turn on your television or PC these days, there’s a very good chance you’ll see advertisements of lots of wide-eyed people tossing and turning in bed, unable to get to sleep without a pill. Drug makers are flooding the nation with sleeping pill commercials, spending about $600 million on direct-to-consumer advertising last year, nearly double from a year earlier.
This NCCAOM course teaches the diagnosis and treatment of insomnia using Oriental Medicine’s 5 Element Patterns. Insomnia is one of the most common ailments reported in clinics today. Patients are tired of being on sleep medications, which are costly, have side-effects and provide temporary and questionable relief. Americans spent an incredible $4 billion on prescriptions for sleeping pills and that figure is expected to grow to $5.5 billion by 2014. More than 43 million sleep medication prescriptions were filled in 2005, up by 60% since 2000.
Learn about the three specific types of insomnia, sleep accumulation, sleep debt and how to treat the condition quickly and effectively using easy Acupuncture treatment protocols based on the diagnosed elemental pattern. This course teaches the busy practitioner how to increase the scope of their practice, how to assess, diagnose, treat the condition treatment protocols based on Chinese Medicine’s 5 Elemental Pattern System.
