While the global cases of COVID-19 have begun to decline, the virus and the medical issues it presents are likely to remain a significant issue for some time to come. As conventional medical therapy is limited, complementary medical providers are well-positioned to use their skill sets in the management of COVID-19, from both a prevention and symptom treatment standpoint. This lecture will introduce the concepts of Functional Medicine as it relates to the immune system and its response to viral infections. We will also review the energetic archetypes and Chinese medical patterns associated with COVID-19 and discuss various approaches to address them with acupuncture, herbs and Acutonics® in sound healing.
Define the concept of Functional Medicine
Describe COVID-19 from the Western biomedical perspective and the energetic perspective
Assess modifiable lifestyle factors which support the immune system and thereby decrease the risk of viral infections and their complications
Synthesize this information to formulate an Integrated Medicine approach to COVID-19 including supplements, herbs, acupuncture, Acutonics ®, shamanism and other treatments
Discuss the archetypes, energetic patterns, medical-astrological considerations and psycho-spiritual implications associated with COVID-19 infection

Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.
If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.
We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top.
Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request.
If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
