This is the third conference I have been associated with and I’m excited. The series is the brainchild of Dr. Xiu-Min Li whose scientific mission over many years has been to adapt traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to treat immune disorders that have stubbornly resisted mainstream medical solutions.
Among the speakers who will be familiar to readers of this website are Scott Sicherer, MD from Mount Sinai, Wayne Shreffler, MD of Mass General, Purvi Parikh, MD, and Dr. Li herself. Less familiar are Er-Ping Xu, MD, Professor, President of Henan University of Traditional Chinese Medicine; Charles Emala, MD, Henrik H. Bendixen Professor of Anesthesiology; Vice Chair for Research, Columbia University Medical Center; Jinhui Dou, PhD, Former FDA Botanical Review Officer; and many more.
I am looking forward particularly to hearing Dr. Mazin Al-Khafaji, MD, and TCM practitioner who will discuss his experience with TCM for unusual/difficult diseases, including dermatological, autoimmune and allergic inflammation. He has something of a rock-star image among acupuncturists. We are fortunate that he’s taking time from a busy teaching tour to join us. Anyone who fears walking in the woods might also be intrigued by Mary Deminie LAc, Founding Professor of the College of Classical Chinese Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine who will speak on using TCM to treat Lyme Disease. Other conditions include asthma, bowel diseases, and mast cell disorders. Beth White, a patient of Dr. Li, will describe her experience with Churg-Strauss and red-skin syndrome and integrative care for these conditions from a patient perspective. The day runs from 8:30AM-4PM.
