Naturopath Continuing Education Information

The Southwest Symposium team is partnering with the Texas Association of Naturopathic Doctors to bring excellent Naturopath continuing education to the Southwest Symposium. This hallmark relationship affirms AOMA's commitment to acupuncture continuing education, but also to being a true integrative medicine conference.

In order to provide additional information to prospective ND participants, we have created this page.  If you still have any lingering questions, please don't hesitate to contact Cara Edmond at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 512-492-3009.

NDs New to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

The Southwest Symposium will be offering CE's from top tier Naturopath educators. However, Naturopaths can attend any course they choose (see list of approved courses if you plan to recieve credit). If this is your first time to our conference, and you have little to no prior experience with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), we recommend that you read The National Institute of Health (NIH) & The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine's (NCCAM) overview.  There is also a wealth of information available from using an internet search engine to find more introductory information on TCM.

For those of you who are new to TCM, the following approved courses will be the easiest to follow:

Katherine Anderson, ND, FABNO
Whole Hearted Oncology Care: An Integrative Approach

Eric Yarnell
Prostate Cancer: Myths and Realities

Becky Andrews and Amy Neuzil
Hijacked Hormones, Environmental Toxins and How Permaculture will save the World

The remaining courses, listed below, will provide technical information that NDs will understand, as well as in-depth TCM concepts.  It is therefore recommended, that the ND have prior background in TCM or that they take some time to learn more intermediate TCM information to facilitate comprehension and integration of the TCM concepts.
