THE RCHM CONFERENCE 2018

'Nourishing the Center'

2nd-4th November 2018

King's College, London

University of Westminster, London

Nourishing the Center

The conference theme this year is 'Nourishing the Center'. All the lectures this year are related to digestion and elimination.  To open the day, our very own president Beth Ingham will give an overview of her research into the Silk Road and development of the Materia Medica. This year, in place of our usual keynote lecture, we are conducting a Roundtable Discussion involving all our speakers from the day and you the audience! The focus of the discussion will be on treating constipation and will aim to draw on all of our collective knowledge and wisdom in treating this sometimes tricky condition. In the afternoon Danny Blyth will be speaking on how to integrate dietary advice into Chinese herbal medicine treatment. Frances Turner will give a Jing Fang perspective on treating digestive complaints. Volker Scheid will be examining the concept of the 'Center' or 'Zhong' in the East Asian medical tradition and how the understanding of this can help us in our clinical practice. Martin John will give his insight into modern and traditional views of the microbiome and how Chinese Medicine is best placed to treat Dysbiosis. On the Sunday Volker Scheid will be giving a full day lecture on strategies to treat the Spleen and Stomach.

Event is over but you can still order the videos through the booking form

The AGM this year will be held at Conway Hall. We encourage all members to attend. Come and find out what has been happening within our community, make friends with other members and take part in our group sharing session where you can benefit from the knowledge and experience of other herbalists.

Saturday 3rd November 11am-1pm - King's College London

Constipation can be difficult to treat and even more challenging to help patients to have sustained improvement. Our community is an incredible resource for information and everyone has their own personal insights and strategies so this year instead of a keynote we are hosting this open forum between our four speakers and you the audience! There will be short presentations at the start of the session, then a panel discussion and finally a Q&A from the audience. Come and take part in this unique opportunity to share and learn with your fellow members! Find out more

The Ship Tavern, 12 Gate St, London WC2A 3HP, UK

VIDEO RECORDINGS & REMOTE ATTENDANCE

http://conference.rchm.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/camera-662129_960_720-300x200.jpg
All attendees of the Saturday lecture day will be emailed links to videos of all of the Saturday lectures after the conference. You will be able to watch these videos for 6 months after the conference so you won't miss out and will be able to see every lecture and speaker. This does not apply to the Sunday lecture.
For the first time we will be selling a 'Remote Attendance' ticket for RCHM members only. Many of our members find it difficult to make the conference due to distance or other unavoidable commitments. For the price of £60 you will be able to purchase access to the videos of the 5 Saturday lectures. These will be made available once they have been edited after the conference. However, we do encourage members to physically attend if they can because we feel that coming together as a community, meeting new and old friends alike and allowing other members to benefit from your presence is equally, if not more important than the lecture content. Please note that the Friday AGM lecture and the Sunday full day lecture will not be recorded. The videos will consist of lecturer audio, audience questions and the powerpoints used by the presenter. The lecturers will not be filmed.
