Metabolic Syndrome viewed through the Six Channels, Acupuncture Channel Theory and Herbal Shan Han Lun applications.

As the incidence of metabolic-related disorders continues to rise, it is increasingly important to understand early diagnostic risk factors and effective ways in which to manage them. The concept of metabolism dates back to the early Greeks and is inherent throughout much of Chinese medical theory. Metabolism enables our bodies to adapt to the world around us. Chinese medical assessment and methods of treatment embody the concept of the body’s innate ability for adaptation making it an effective intervention for a wide range of metabolic disorders.

Six Channel pattern identification and treatment was developed in the Shan Han Lun and written by Zhang Zhong Jing during the later part of the Han Dynasty (220 A.D.). Although largely known for the treatment of externally contracted febrile diseases, it has significant clinical applications for the treatment of internal disorders.

Techniques for using Six Channel theory to diagnose and identify early metabolic dysfunction and treatment strategies for the prevention and management of a wide range of metabolic disharmonies will be presented.
