One in three people in the industrialised world have allergies and one in 12 have autoimmune diseases • More and more patients need help with these maladies, which are increasing at an alarming rate • How our changing environment can be the cause of wei qi disharmony (at the root of many of these diseases) and how re-harmonisation is the only intelligent approach to treatment • The most common conditions such as allergic rhinitis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Sjögren’s syndrome and SLE (lupus) • We will look at each disease in terms of its multiple syndromes, symptoms, depth of disease penetration based on the shan han lun format, treatment principles and acupuncture formula, and food/herb supplements that have direct anti-allergy/autoimmune effect
