The Importance of Diet and Lifestyle in Treating Pain: A Chinese Medicine Approach

Talk by Brendan Kelly, L.Ac., M.Ac., Herbalist

University of Vermont Integrative Pain Management Conference, Online Class

Friday May 7 2:10-3:00pm

Using the holistic lens of Chinese medicine, we’ll discuss the direct connection between the smaller, microcosm issues of inflammation and pain and the larger, macrocosm issue of climate change.

From several thousand years of continuous development, Chinese medicine has developed deep-reaching insights that can be applied clinically and to larger ecological issues. In particular, Chinese medicine’s School of Heat tradition (Wen Bing Xue) provides a clinical framework to conceptualize the similarities between the western diagnosis of inflammation and the Chinese medicine understanding of heat. The School of Heat tradition also provides a larger context to recognize the direct connection between the inflammation associated with pain and the rapid warming of the planet

Combining the ideas and research in his book The Yin and Yang of Climate Crisis with his clinical experience, Brendan will discuss Chinese medicine theory and practice treating the root issues of a wide range of pain conditions. We’ll also apply these same principles to discuss the direct connection between internal heat/inflammation and the deeper personal and cultural issues of the climate crisis.
