A Personal Message from Dr. Lorne Brown

I Was Told by Several of My Peers That My Ideas Would Fail. Thankfully I Ignored the Naysayers.

In 1994, I left a comfortable career as a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and moved across the country to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor of TCM. Back then, because there were no regulations for acupuncture in British Columbia I was told the chance of me earning a living from practicing acupuncture was unlikely, especially compared to what I was making as a CPA. Not true. Today my practice, Acubalance Vancouver, is internationally known for integrative fertility care and my family and I enjoy a wonderful lifestyle.

By 2008, I launched Pro D Seminars to offer online continuing education for acupuncturists. My colleagues and I were tired of struggling to find ‘reliable’ educational resources to help us be better practitioners. Nobody had ever done it. I was told that I would fail, big time. Again, not true. The site has grown exponentially every year since its inception. It’s not luck or magic, it is just common sense. I created Pro D — to bolster those struggling with the same fears I had as an entrepreneur and practitioner, to enhance their value as a practitioner through education. Pro D became our place to ‘invest in yourself, so others would invest in you’.

As the pioneer in online TCM education, and with exponential growth every year, we have grown to a point we had to take the next step. We pooled resources to create ‘ease of access’ for our users and a smoother/faster delivery platform! We called it Health Seminars (www.healthseminars.com). This most recent upgrade to www.healthyseminars.com is more proof of our commitment to excellence. We now have a full-time IT staff, which can perform real-time updates and upgrades without disrupting your flow. We are all so busy and there is so much more to accomplish.

In 2015 I founded the Integrative Fertility Symposium (ifsymposium.com), again well-intended people told me I was crazy. I was told that in-person acupuncture conferences were rapidly declining in attendance, but I knew that it was because the event needed to be an ‘Event!’. I was no longer surprised when I was told that nobody would attend a destination conference in Vancouver with such a narrow focus (reproductive health). And I tell you this, so you will act when you just ‘know’ what needs to be done: registrations for exhibitors and attendees have sold out every year with participants from across the globe.

You may wonder how I, an average Joe, made this happen despite the naysayers and constant risk of failure? I put in the work every single day to better myself through education. My continuous learning made me a better practitioner and entrepreneur, and my increased knowledge and competence from the continued learning gave me the confidence to persevere in the face of hardship. In short, my investment in education took me farther than I could have gone with basic training as a Dr. of TCM and CPA.

I know you have big dreams and are compelled to help others. I understand it can feel like the journey is too challenging, or like success is impossible. I want to help you attain your dreams and experience abundance and prosperity in your life. I think my experience will prove that it starts by building on your educational foundation.

I’m living proof that no matter who you are, when you invest in yourself, you inspire others to invest in you.

Happy learning,

Theory without Practice is Nothing: Move the Thinking to Relieve And Prevent Mental and Physical Pathologies

One thing I’ve learned from studying the ancient medical texts from my teacher, Tran Viet Dzung, is that if the ancient masters of thousands of years ago offer a theory, then a practical application exists to help our patients. For example, when they state a natural law that the child return to help its parent, and the student come back to thank the teacher, and to remember the person who planted the tree when you eat the apple, it’s all to illustrate that when we treat the acquired (post-natal) energy, we must remember to treat the innate (pre-natal) energy and vice versa. This illustrative theory suggests that in practice, when we are in front of a patient with needles in hand, to always consider to treat the Spleen/Stomach (acquired) in conditions involving the Kidneys (innate) and to always consider treating the Kidneys in conditions involving the Spleen/Stomach.

In the case of treating a menopausal woman, for example, when treating the Kidneys (innate), remember to also treat the spleen/stomach system (acquired) for a better clinical effect, as the natural law is that the acquired (Sp/St) must come back to help the innate (Kd). If you’ve seen a menopausal woman, she could likely explain the significance of this, as typically she’ll notice her digestive system isn’t of the same caliber as when she was younger. You may even notice teeth marks sprouting on her tongue that weren’t previously obvious. Mentally, she may tell you that she still harbors all these thoughts, but often lacks the motivation or the will to follow through to action. The theory put forth by the ancient masters applies to the mental as well as the physical. Just like the acquired must come back to help the innate, a thought, if it exists, must move toward action, in order for it to be a healthy and productive thought.

In the ancient texts, they rarely just say Yi (thought) or Zhi (Will); they more often say Yi/Zhi mentioning them together, as physiologically one does not exist without the other. So just as the acquired must come back to help the Innate, just like the child must return to help its parent, as a natural law, the thought, in order for it to be a functional, healthy, physiological thought, must move toward action in order to achieve an internal homeostasis. Otherwise, if the thought is allowed to just hang out without follow-through, assuming real estate within our being, it risks stagnating.

And we all know too well that a stagnant thought is no fun.

A thought that’s blocked and impeded from resolving toward action, from transforming to fruition, is often referred to as worry. Other terms commonly associated with a stuck thought include: rumination, or preoccupation. Stagnant thinking has also been awarded more fancy terms, such as monkey-mind or spinning, or more clinical terms such as obsessing, cravings or over-analyzing. And stagnant thinking can also be associated with certain illnesses or treatments, such as “chemo-brain” or “fibro-brain.”

It seems this condition of a stuck thought, or continual thinking gone stagnant, could be a rampant issue in our society and among the conditions our patients present with.

What if there were simple ways in which we could help our patients to move their thinking. Even better, what if there were ways we could help them to make a decision, even if it’s not a good decision, but just any old decision, to get them out of their head. And then what if we applied what we know to strengthen their Will and increase their motivation to take action and relieve them of the relentless sticky thoughts?

As we stand in front of the patient, with needles in hand, and we contemplate the wisdom of the ancient masters in the ancient medical texts from thousands of years ago, observing the patient’s bloated belly, scalloped tongue, and worried shriveled look on their complexion, we recall that theory without practice is nothing. And even though we know this theory – that the acquired must come back to help the innate, and the thought must move toward action in order to be a healthy thought – how do we apply this theory to practice to help the patient in front of us, who is imprisoned by their pathological thinking?

Join us for the upcoming Medigogy: Taming the Unbridled Thought in Anxiety, Insomnia & Depression, where we will relieve you of theoretical analysis by providing therapeutically tested action you can take with needles in hand to achieve clinical results with your patient laying before you.

And better still, join us for a more in-depth study of applying ancient theory to real-world pathologies for Advanced Acupuncture for Anxiety, Insomnia, and Depression on February 5, 2017, 9am PST – 4pm PST for 6 CEUs – sure to be packed with more points-per-hour than you could wish for and more real-world action based on ancient energetic theory to ignite your conviction in treating the most complex pathologies.

When it comes to kids’ fevers, skip Tylenol and choose Chinese medicine

I am not sure how I can follow this weeks email about “I wet my pants” as there certainly were lots of comments and positive feedback. Thank you for sharing your stories of fears with me. If you missed the email you can still read the blog post and watch the free video here.(link is external) I have something important I want to tell you so I am sending an extra email out this week.

It is important that we help raise a healthy next generation. Many kids are put on Tylenol for fevers and swollen glands, but this can be harmful to their livers and may even lead to trapped pathogenic factors that open doors to future illnesses. I am sending you this email to let you know that we have an upcoming free live webinar on how to safely treat kids for recurrent episodes of fevers with swollen glands with Sun Simiao’s Chinese medicine techniques. Watch this live webinar to strengthen the future of your community by learning how to give children a better and healthier chance.

Our esteemed presenter for this webinar is Assaf Mor.

Assaf is a practitioner of Chinese medicine, Shiatsu, herbal therapy, and Qi Gong and specializes in the treatment of children and adolescents. He is a graduate of Broshim College of Integrative Medicine, Tel Aviv University in Shiatsu and continued his studies in Classical Chinese medicine, Stems & Branches, and Japanese Acupuncture. He also completed an advanced course in acupuncture at the Guan An Man Hospital in Beijing.

Periodic fever aphthous pharyngitis and cervical adenopathy (PFAPA) is a more common and familiar condition than the frightening name given to it would have you believe. Many children experience recurrent episodes of fevers with swollen glands and when there are no other symptoms, they are usually diagnosed with “viral infections.” Only a few of them will be diagnosed with FPAPA when the fever turns cyclic, but this diagnosis will not give the parents or the child any relief.

A brief dive into the writing of Sun Simiao from almost 1400 years ago, together with clinical case studies, will give us an interesting insight into a situation that can be explained as a healthy state of the body and the immune system, rather than as a disease.

Assaf is also the chair of the ICCM (the International Community of Chinese Medicine in Israel)(link is external) which hosts an annual conference that I strongly recommend attending. You will find amazing speakers sharing inspiring and cutting edge content in a vibrant city with beautiful people. I will be teaching at the ICCM in on March 14th, 2018 on Laser Acupuncture for Fertility and Egg Quality. An excuse for us to hang out and eat falafel. Plus, Assaf Mor will be presenting one of the pre-symposium lectures with Sabine Wilms on pediatrics at the Integrative Fertility Symposium.

What is your wake up call?

At the time, I was not aware what triggered it, but back in 2012 I was struck with a bout of anxiety that would not go away.  I had no logical reason to feel this way.  My personal and professional life were in good order and I was financially comfortable.  Although I was considered to be in good health, I actually thought I had something serious like cancer and this was my body’s way of communicating the imbalance, since the anxiety was so visceral yet I had no good reason to be feeling anxious.

I am all good now.  I ran a battery of functional medicine and conventional tests and  finally found the underlying cause, inflammation was going to my brain from a festering infection in my jaw related to a root canal gone bad.  I am so grateful for the experience. It was my wake up call.   I learned empathy for the patients I see with anxiety and depression.

Those two years of debilitating anxiety ( which I kept it hidden although I was suffering terribly inside) was what inspired me to take functional medicine training with Dan Kalish so I could learn to run all the lab tests and more importantly, it motivated me to pursue spiritual practices that continues today.  I am grateful for the Work of Gila Golub(link is external) which I continue to practice daily and has truly provided me with a framework to develop conscious thinking and behaviors that allows me to enjoy long periods of peace of mind.

Recently, I completed a 5-day workshop with:

  • Joe Dispenza – author of Breaking the Habit of Being Your Self
  • Bruce Lipton – author of The Biology of Beliefs
  • Gregg Braden – author of The DIvine Matrix
  • Lynn Mctaggart –author of The Power of Eight
  • Lee Carrol – author of Indigo Children
The emphasis was on becoming conscious and how our thoughts and feelings create magnetic fields that “communicate” with the FIELD to create our realities. If you do not like your life, then it starts with changing your thinking and daily practices to develop consciousness.
And when it comes to spontaneous healing, using energy to affect matter can be more efficient compared to using matter to affect matter.  As acupuncturists, we use both matter and energy to affect matter.  I think modern TCM has gone more the way of matter which is why I am excited that classical Chinese medicine is making a comeback.
I love it when things synchronize and the universe opens doors you did not know exists with invisible hands.  When this happens, it gives me comfort that I am being supported by the universe (Field).  This happened to me after my 5-day workshop.  I looked up on Healthy Seminars to find out the date for the next live webinar I will be moderating and there it was: Yvonne Farrell‘s webinar on Evolution of Consciousness – The Link Between the 8 Extraordinary Vessels and the Extraordinary Fu.
This topic speaks to me so deeply based on where I am on my human evolution so the timing is perfect!
After the workshop, I called Yvonne and we talked about acupuncture’s role in helping people with consciousness.  I was very interested to better understanding what her course was all about.  I could not wait for July 8th – I needed the goods now so we decided to set a FB live chat to geek out on the topic ahead of her webinar.
