Future of Medicine Conference China 2018

I was invited to a conference called Future Medicine which took place in early November in Hangzhou China. Hangzhou is a city as big as London though you may not have heard of it which gives you an idea of the scale of China and its 1.4 billion people.  I met the main organiser many years ago in the Netherlands.

China’s one child policy has been abandoned and the general consensus is that this has happened too late and has left them with a very difficult demographic of a lot of older people supported by fewer than needed younger people.

They are building a railway network of fast trains which will shrink the country down effectively in communication terms to something like the size of England, in that people will be able to cross it from major city to another major city the opposite side of China in the same time it takes at the moment to get from London to Aberdeen by train. Or something like that. And they are doing it at a pace that may outperform our one high speed line being built in England.  

The sheer scale of China is something to behold. It’s a bit unbelievable.  

The clinic that was sponsoring the conference, was focused on traditional Chinese medicine, as was the conference. What I witnessed was Gua Sha and physical therapy in particular.

Gua sha (Chinese: 刮痧) is a traditional Chinese medical treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light petechiae (redness/soreness). Gua sha releases unhealthy bodily matter from blood stasis within sore, tired, stiff or injured muscle areas to stimulate new oxygenated blood flow to the areas, thus promoting metabolic cell repair, regeneration, healing and recovery.

Apparently to become an acupuncturist in China you first have to study medicine for five years and then you have to study acupuncture for five years. And I get the impression that they are closing down the acupuncture courses. Although I did meet one acupuncturist trained this way.

In addition, they are developing, at the clinics sponsoring the conference, a thermal imaging device, that takes about one minute to scan the whole body, which can show you where the weaknesses in the body are. And from what I witnessed it seems pretty impressive to me. They scanned my body and found all the issues I know about, and lots of issues I didn’t know about yet made sense to me. For example, not enough blood was getting into my brain/head. And they knew how to correct this on a physical somatic level.

Given that x-rays can now be better interpreted by artificial intelligence than radiographers, if this thermal imaging device is developed to the point that artificial intelligence can interpret its pictures, this could be a powerful instrument for anybody to useful before and after treatment. Homoeopaths for example, any form of alternative or conventional treatment, any form of therapy psychotherapy or constellations. You would be able to map the process of treatment and recovery.

Attendees and presenters at the conference came from China, USA, Japan, Taiwan, Russia, France, myself UK, and all the presenters were male. It was mainly about the presenters sharing ideas in the tea breaks and lunch breaks and suppers and this was somewhat stifled by the need for permanent translation.

I made a presentation which is now on video. It was a bit tricky, in that I had 20 minutes for me, 20 minutes for interpretation, and because I was presenting a new therapy.  I think it took me at least 100 hours to develop this 20-minute presentation. I was trying to summarise 20 years of work! I presented it using the data from hundreds of thousands of cases in Africa. When most people that present cases they present one or a few. And most people don’t present a new therapy. It occurs to me that there is no conference you can go to, to present the emergence of new therapies. I’m also pretty sure I must be wrong on this. Please tell me you know of some conference that takes place to present emerging new therapeutic process. Not improvements on existing ones but new ones that are emerging.

They are building a large research clinical and conference facility. Right now in Hangzhou. There may have been a 1000? scaffolding poles on their rooftop clinic construction which will have its own inner courtyard garden.

Our presentations were on the TV-like screen that was about 8 m across and 4 m high. Forget projectors!

We are in the process of discussing future developments for using audio source resonances in China. If this comes to fruition we will be carrying out feasibility studies in China next year.

Here’s my presentation:
