Abstract:

Background: Th ere is a global trend of Integrative Medicine (IM) to pursue the best interest of the patients by merging the conventional with the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). However, the communication between the 2 disciplines had not been well explored. To bridge the medical practice from the east to the west, the mapping of diagnoses between the 2 disciplines in Hong Kong serves the ideal platform for investigation. Aims & Objectives: To determine the mapping of diagnoses between conventional and TCM in primary care of Hong Kong. Methods: A cross-sectional study of prospective recording of all clinical encounters that presented to 260 Chinese Medicine Practitioners (CMP) were collected in 2012. All health presenting problems were coded by International Classifi cation of Primary care (ICPC) and the National Classifi cation of disease (NCCD) and Zheng (NCCZ) of TCM. Results: 55,312 encounters were collected from 260 CMPs. Most subjects (64.0%) consulted for chronic problems. Respiratory (24.9%) and musculoskeletal (22.7%) problems were the most common, and specifi cally cough (11.7%) and low back symptom/ complaint (6.6%) being the commonest complaints. Th e most common TCM diagnoses in the form of NCCD was internal medicine (65.1%). By NCCZ (i.e. syndrome diff erentiation), Zang Fu & Meridian syndrome (40.5%) was the most common Zheng found by CMP. Th e top 3 categories of NCCD were tendon injury (9.4%), infl uenza (8.8%) and cough (6.2%). Tendon injury was mainly diagnosed as injury, Meridian syndrome (14.7%). Infl uenza was mostly diagnosed as wind-cold syndrome (31.5%). Cough was mainly diagnosed as wind-heat syndrome (25.9%). Conclusion: Th is was the fi rst study to investigate the mapping between conventional and TCM by means of a morbidity patterns with the parallel coding from ICPC-2, NCCD and NCCZ (i.e. syndrome diff erentiation). To facilitate the goal of integrative medicine, this study allows a broad spectrum of understanding of terminology used between 2 disciplines.

Biography:

Mara Doljak has completed her Master’s degree in Pharmacy. She is the Founder and Owner of a certifi ed Aromatherapy school (Aroma Center) and a company (Aromara) that promotes aromatherapy and aromatherapy products intended for health and beauty. In 2015, she held lectures at the following conferences: Phyt’Arom Grasse in France, Pacifi c Institute of Aromatherapy in San Francisco, USA and International Conference on Natural Products Utilization in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

Abstract:

Croatia is a marvellous country but in a post-war aft ermath with deep economic, moral and intellectual consequences. Since 1991, we at Aromara have been spreading awareness about aromatherapy through education, products and impact at a Governmental level. When researching product development, we seek common chronic health problems that lack an eff ective pharmacological cure. Th is is the case for vaginal infections. Most common forms of vaginitis are bacterial vaginosis (40-45%), vaginal candidiasis (20-25%) and trichomoniasis (15-20%). Up to 70% of women may remain undiagnosed. 498 million people aged 15 to 49 worldwide are infected each year with chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis or trichomoniasis. A synergistic combination of Helianthus annuus, Hypericum perforatum, Calendula offi cinalis, Prunus armeniaca fi xed oils and Melaleuca alternifolia, Cymbopogon martinii, Cananga odorata, Helichrysum italicum, Pogostemon patchouli, Pelargonium graveolens and Matricaria chamomilla essential oils, used daily, showed results in alleviating symptoms and providing clear medical tests of the vaginal fl ora. Aromatograms and pharmacological properties of the main ingredients demonstrate the health benefi ts of the formulation. Th e sociological results of improving women's vaginal health are higher creativity, less depression, better overall health, better sexual life, better motherhood, healthier family - the results of which brings us towards promoting a healthy
society.
