The Science of Yogic Breathing with Saraswati Markus
Sunday, 11/5 at 9:00 AM to 9:50 AM
Breath work is a general term used to describe any type of therapy that utilizes breathing exercises to improve physical, mental and spiritual health. Many forms of breath work exist today, each with their own unique methods of using breath for healing purposes. Drawing from traditions of yoga, qigong and contemplative practice, these techniques are used for relaxation, self-awareness, and stress reduction. Recent research conducted at the Medical University of South Carolina discovered that yogic breathing promotes salivary secretions that contain protein molecules that are important for healthy living and aging. One of the most compelling findings: after 20 minutes of pranayama, the saliva contains more Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) than the non-treatment group. NGF has a central role in the growth of neuron cells and in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. Learn the technique used in this study and the other benefits of this ancient practice.
Introduction to Real Traditional Chinese Pulse Diagnosis with Jian Min Fan
Sunday, 11/5 at 9:55 AM to 10:45 AM
Traditional Chinese pulse diagnosis has several thousand years of history. Its value has been solidly proven, whether it was recognized by modern science or not, having been widely used across the whole medical profession in modern times… but it also has been facing some challenges. We must standardize the measurement process of pulse diagnosis, so that every medical professional can use it with proper training, and we must increase recognition of the clinical value of traditional pulse diagnosis so that the whole medical profession and general public can benefit from it. This course is designed to achieve the purpose of resolving some of these challenges.

About 285 million people are visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 million have low vision. Many of these conditions are considered untreatable by conventional medicine, often leaving patients in a hopeless and desperate situation. Loss of vision can occur suddenly or develop gradually over time, with impaired vision becomes more common with age. Common causes of vision loss in the elderly include diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and cataracts.
