Food Allergies webinar

This evening, I will be giving a free, live webinar for acupuncturists about treating food allergies in children with acupuncture, hosted by http://www.treatingchildren.com.  It will be a good introduction for anyone who has paediatric patients who have allergies or intolerances to foods.  I will outline:

  • the main types of food allergies and intolerances
  • causes of food allergies
  • key pathologies seen in food allergies
  • treatment of these pathologies
  • practicalities of treating children with food allergies.

Rebecca Avern

I have been practising acupuncture for 15 years. As well as practising in Oxford, I am both a senior lecturer and clinical supervisor at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (www.cicm.org.uk) which is the biggest acupuncture training centre in Europe. I have treated both adults and children and whilst the benefits of acupuncture for adults are well-known and well-documented, fewer people are aware of how it can benefit children. I decided that I wanted more children to experience the benefits of acupuncture, and so decided to set up The Panda Clinic. I have to admit to having another motivation - I love being around children and derive great satisfaction when I see children recover from ill health. I am mother to 2 primary school age children. As well as being an experienced acupuncturist, as a parent I have a good understanding of the stress and anxiety that an ill child can induce. I will always do my best to communicate with the parent(s) of a child I am treating as thoroughly and clearly as I can.
