Course Overview
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively. In MS, the body presents with a wide range of symptoms; some physical, emotional or psychological. Symptoms can range from sudden paralysis, sudden blindness, muscle twitching or weakness, muscle atrophy, incontinence of stool and urine, mental confusion, aphasia, depression, loss of memory or loss of cognitive functions and so on. This disease mainly affects women three times more than men, between the ages of 20 to 40. It is recorded that there were over 20 million cases of MS in Northern Europe.

Western medicine has reached a certain level of advancements when it comes to diagnosing this disease. However, the causes of MS are still considered unknown and treatments of MS are still experimental and have severe side effects such as mild or severe depression, multi organ failure and death. Chinese medicine can greatly affect the quality and length of the life. With the right treatment approach, we can treat the presenting symptoms and prevent them from returning. Using the wealth of information given to us in the classical Chinese medicine we are able to have effective treatment for MS patients.

In this recorded seminar, Dr. Robidoux clearly explains the classical understanding of the body and mind in Chinese medicine and relates it to severe degenerative neurological diseases. Dr. Robidoux presents important treatment protocols effective for MS using some body and scalp acupuncture, moxibustion and herbal medicine. Dr. Robidoux also covers additional treatment approaches for over 20 of the main symptoms seen in MS.

Dr. Robidoux was involved in a Chinese medicine research treating MS with Chinese medicine and has successfully treated MS patients in Canada and Europe successfully. She introduces some of the clinical cases and treatment protocols.
  • Review the etiology of multiple sclerosis according to TCM and according to classical Chinese medicine.
  • Understand the classical Chinese medicine outlook on life and health and understand how it is affected in systematic and neurological disorders.

    About Suzanne Robidoux

    Dr. Suzanne Robidoux has lived in China and Taiwan for the last 17 years studying with various masters with a focus on classics and clinical practice. She started by spending three years in the south of Taiwan to master mandarin while learning with masters. Then she moved to Nanjing and completed her Ph.D. in acupuncture at the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine in 2007. During her doctorates, she focused her studies and research on treating neurological disorders and psychological disorders as well as severe depression. One of these masters was Dr. Lu Qian at the Neurological Hospital (direct lineage of doctor Jiao Shu Fa). During her apprenticeship with Dr. Lu, Suzanne learned the most effective ways to treat severe cases of post-stroke coma, paralysis, hemiplegia, multiple sclerosis, Meniere’s diseases and so on. Over 90% of the patients would receive cranial acupuncture with body acupuncture. The second master, Dr. Tao Kun, is famous for his needling technique and his moxibustion techniques and efficacy on post-stroke paralysis and various musculoskeletal diseases. Suzanne came to Beijing in 2007 and worked with several masters all over China to bring their life’s work to the printing press and make the knowledge available to the West. She translated and edited over 20 professional Chinese medical textbooks related to acupuncture and Chinese medicine, during which she had the chance to work with Dr. Shi Xuemin, specialist in neurological disorders and famous for getting the best results with his needling technique. In the West, he is known to be the treating doctor from Tianjin in the documentary “9000 Needles”. Suzanne is now the chief acupuncturist of the Neurological and Post-Stroke Department at the Yanda Health City in Beijing. She also works at the Suicide Prevention Center in Beijing to contribute to the benefit of society providing acupuncture treatment severe cases of depression and suicidal tendencies.
