Irene Prantalos utilises acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to assist in a variety of health concerns. Irene has a special interest in treating skin complaints such as acneic skin, psoriasis and eczema, reproductive health issues such as infertility, menstrual irregularities and menopause, digestive health issues and general anti-ageing concerns through collagen induction therapy.
Skin diseases such as psoriasis have long been a tough illness to resolve. Modern medicine looks to suppress the immune system from being ‘a nuisance’ with drugs such as biologics; the reality is our strength as Chinese Medicine practitioners holds the key to truly helping patients take control of their health and understand the reasons why the illness occurred to begin with. This workshop will identify how to treat an acute flare up with Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture, and how to empower patients with making the right nutritional and lifestyle choices to see the reduction in the frequency and intensity of future flare ups.
Additionally, research will be presented to help your patients understand the systemic nature of psoriasis. This includes insulin resistance’s link to inflammation, obesity affecting the outcome of treatments and glutens impact on insulin resistance and inflammation. With over 3% of the world’s population affected by psoriasis and modern medicine failing to address the root cause, it is our duty as Chinese Medicine practitioners to help those afflicted by psoriasis with treatments and guidance that will support them on their journey to optimal health.
