ORGANIC FARMING AND CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE

with Sir Julian Rose, Jadwiga Lopata and Professor Man Fong Mei
on Saturday 10 August, 3pm – 5pm at AcuMedic, 101 – 105 Camden High Street, London, NW1 7JN

Organic farming is essential, not only to our own health, but also for the environmental health of the planet. Cross-contamination of chemical fertilisers and GM crops filterthrough our food chain and affect water and soil for generations to come. The effects on herbal medicine are no different.

In this talk, Sir Julian Rose and Jadwiga Lopata will present their experience of organic farming, gained through their pioneering work in the field. Together with Professor Mei, they will be discussing how their experiences can benefit the way herbal medicine is produced so that Chinese medicine can be free from contamination.

Sir Julian Rose is a leading exponent of organic farming and began the transformation of the Hardwick Estate in South Oxfordshire to the standards of organic farming in 1975. The estate is now one of Britain’s leading organic mixed farms. Jadwiga Lopata is an organic farmer, who lives near Krakow, Poland.

In 2000, she formed The International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside (ICPPC) and was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2002 for her works on rural protection.

Professor Mei has made strenuous efforts to ensure that all AcuMedic herbs are free from contamination. AcuMedic have been selling Chinese herbs for over 30 years and have established strong and very strict partnerships with herb growers all over China. We also have experts in London to check the herbs before we sell them to our patients.

Getting the Optimum Benefit from Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture –

Treatment and Health Regulation

Saturday 7 September, 3 – 5pm

The most frequently asked question from the many thousands of patients who have attended the AcuMedic Clinic is ‘how do I get the most from my treatment?’ . In Chinese medicine, the active collaboration between the doctor and patient is imperative to clinical efficacy. This talk will highlight the Chinese physician’s understanding of the complex pattern on which health and disease lies and explain the many factors that affect treatment. In addition, Professor Mei will be offering advice on how patients can take their health into their own hands by adapting their lifestyle to improving their physical and psycho-emotional health.

The Heart and Mind in Chinese Medicine and Culture

Saturday 5 October, 3 – 5pm

The main topic of this talk is the mutually dependant relationship between physical health and emotional and mental health. Professor Mei will be citing the Chinese classics and modern research on psycho-emotional syndromes that lead not only to psychological disorders like depression, but also to physical diseases such as cancer and other metabolic syndromes. He will also be comparing Chinese medicine approaches with Western medicine approaches, by referring to Freud and Jung.

Scholarship is not just an idealistic dream of a few intellectuals. Chinese scholars are key figures throughout Chinese history and have influenced the values, philosophy, arts and poetry in Chinese society over thousands of years. In this talk, Professor Mei will summarise his own personal view of the works of many different scholars, who promoted enlightenment within human civilisation and a social reality that enhanced the real meaning of existence. This promises to be a light-hearted and enjoyable talk!
