“FOOD PHYSICS & BODY DYNAMICS™” Lessons in Whole Food Healing, Nutrition Education, Presenter Laura L. Dawson, MAOM, Dipl.Ac., L.Ac.
Purpose of class: To address the unmet need for Nutrition Education Credits in all Healthcare Professions, (See: Published in final edited form as: Am J Clin Nutr. 2006 April; 83(4): 941S–944S, “Status of nutrition education in medical schools”) with a focus on acupuncture and oriental medicine and The 8 Principle Model of disease assessment. We will introduce the Five Flavors, Five Colors of foods along with corresponding action affecting specific organ systems, i.e. green affects the liver. We will introduce methods of assessing disease patterns on the tongue and nutritional treatment used to alleviate the symptoms of the patient’s complaint. Attendees will be supplied with a mirror to use during the training viewing tongues and learning to assess body conditions.  Training sessions are open to Licensed Healthcare Professionals, medical school students, and in some cases to public health seekers: 5 hrs=5 Credits.

More clinically specific and technical methods will be addressed in the last 1.75 hour of the 4.75 hours training (equivalent to 5 Credits). Professional Attendees can expect to view tongues, coat and body, make assessments, both in theory and in practicum. Case Discussions will be held regarding live examples from the audience, similar to medical rounds, arriving at nutritional recommendations with consensus. [Contact Sofi@TheSpiritofFood.com to request permission to bring a live patient to the final, HIPPA Compliant 1.75 hr of the event, at no additional cost, to the patient by FPBD llc.]

At the conclusion of the presentation, the participant will be able to:

View and assess the presence of Hot or Cold, Damp and Stagnation, organ system affected via signs in the body and coat of the tongue.
Determine flavor and color of food to use when targeting a disease factor to alleviate symptoms.
Understand food physics (activity of food-bound energy) involved when a specific food is ingested, i.e. how organ system targeted, direction up/down, warm/cool, etc.
