Description: The Grand Rounds class is an opportunity for practitioners to share patient cases and theories that examine the types of treatments and conditions attendees may see or use in their clinic. Different than online training or reading cases, this live class is a chance to delve deeper into the real cases and ask questions directly to the treating practitioner about treatment style, patient follow-up, and the true incorporation of different styles of medicine.
Presenters and Topics:
Kathe Ana DAS, L.Ac: A Case study of the use of Jaffe-Mellor Technique (JMT), acupuncture, and topical herbal formula for remission of severe rheumatoid arthritis
Kathe Ana graduated from MITCM in 2001 and opened the family-run Heavenly Bodies Clinic. In 2006 a full-body detox program was implemented that is the only detox program tested through a western model and proven effective in eliminating heavy metals, environmental toxins and prescription medications from the body as well as the brain. In 2010 Dr. Ana developed and received NCCAOM approval for an apprentice program in acupuncture, preparing students to sit for the national exam. In 2012, Kathe Ana opened Northern Virginia College of Eastern Spirituality & Healing, certified under SHEV to award masters and doctoral degrees. Heavenly Bodies Clinic is a private, for-profit clinic taking patients by referral. She is a current member of the Acupuncture Society of Virginia.
Kathe Ana will discuss the case of M.L., a 58 year old woman presenting with level 8 pain, swelling and bone deformity in both wrists from Rheumatoid Arthritis. The near-miraculous results in this patient from treatment with kinesiology specific to Jaffee Mellor Technique, acupuncture, herbs and diet therapy is a radical departure from the normal western medicine prognosis for RA.
Cathleen Heideman MSN, ANP-BC, L.Ac: Chinese and Western Medicine approach to Treating Patients with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
Cathy has been a nurse for 35 years, a nurse practitioner for 27 years, a college teacher for 10 years, and an acupuncturist for 3 years. Cathy joined the ASVA board as secretary in 2013 and is happy to now work as your legislative liaison. She graduated from Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine in 2011. Already living in Virginia and working as a Nurse Practitioner in Integrative Medicine she then added acupuncture to the practice. In 2013 she opened a private acupuncture practice in West Springfield. She practices acupuncture along with integrative medicine.
Cathy chose to discuss patients with multiple chemical sensitivity as it is particularly challenging to treat in all paradigms. It is also becoming much more common and not easily diagnosed.
Stephanie Pina L.Ac, MSOM, ND, FABORM: A Case Study of Digestive Disorder of an Unknown Origin
Stephanie Pina began working for the Roselle Center of Healing in Fairfax, Virginia in 2010. In 2005 she completed her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine located in Tempe, AZ and opened a private practice. While training at SCNM she was first introduced to Chinese medicine and returned back to school to complete a Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine from the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture. She is a NCCAOM Diplomat of Oriental Medicine since 2009.
Stephanie has been a Fellow and member of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) since 2012. She has written for national health and educational magazines including The Townsend Letter and To Your Health magazine. She can also be heard as a guest host on the radio show Dr. Tom Roselle Live. Her goal is to educate people about the importance of being proactive in their health and combining the best of all types of medicine. She is a current board member of the Acupuncture Society of Virginia.
Digestive disorders are common in many patients and often it can be easily identified by the patient’s lifestyle and dietary habits. However, when you get a patient that eats well, has limited health concerns, and lives an ideal lifestyle where do you begin to make changes when an unexpected illness occurs? I treated this case early in my years of practice and needed to combine what I learn in both acupuncture training and conventional medicine to truly treat the patient. Simple cases often led to big discoveries about medicine, our patients, and the world around us.
Hyung Sik Beyon KMD, MSOM. L.Ac, Dipl. OM (NCCAOM): Brief introduction of “DONG-UI-BO-GAM (Mirror of Eastern Medicine)” and clinical application
Hyung Sik Beyon received his Bachelors and Master’s degree in Korean medicine from Kyung Hee University in Seoul, Korea. He is a licensed internist in Korean medicine and licensed acupuncturist in Virginia. He was an intern and completed a residency at Kyung Hee Medical specializing in neurology and cardiology from 2007 to 2011. He served as a public health physician at the Goseong Health Center from 2011 to 2014.
Hyung Sik Beyon is currently working full-time at Virginia University of Oriental Medicine in Fairfax, Virginia as the Chair of Oriental Medicine Department and Director of Clinical Operations. He is also a full member of the Korean Association of Korean Medicine, the Korean Association of Korean Internal Medicine, and the Korean Association of Stroke in Korean Medicine.
The year 2013 was special for the history of traditional Korean medicine. It was the 400th anniversary of DongUiBoGam, which was authored by Doctor Heo Jun and is widely acclaimed the best medical book in East Asia. A number of medical scholars had generated a variety of medical knowledge and clinical experiences by the late 16th century in Asian region. However, those had not been well organized and integrated to each other until systematically integrated in the single and consistent medical book, DongUiBoGam by Heo Jun.
After its publication, DongUiBoGam has played the role of a rudder in medical development throughout Asia. It provided theoretical cornerstones for a medicine customized to the Korean
environment and people as well. Hence, it is our responsibility to remember the masterpiece's value and meaning, and to share them with people over the world in order to contribute to the advancement of human health. DongUiBoGam covers a broad range of knowledge and contains copious medical formulas and skills; and most parts of the book are somewhat not easy for non-professionals of traditional medicine to understand.
Hence, this introduction not only benefits professionals in traditional medicine, but also helps readers in English-speaking countries who are interested in traditional East Asian medicine. Moreover, it will give them an opportunity to obtain background knowledge for understanding the original DongUiBoGam. I sincerely hope that people around the world can learn about the value of East Asian traditional medicine, and acquire knowledge that will help future medical practitioners to handle numerous potential challenges.
