From swine flu to cancer and from mammograms to vaccinations, we all hear conflicting opinions and information today and it’s very difficult to know what and who to believe. This course will address today’s medical issues from the perspective of the enduring wisdom of both East and West. Issues for discussion and demonstration will be chosen according to the interests of the course participants.
The course will be co-taught by the father-son team of Dr. Philip Incao, anthroposophic physician, and Dr. Sebastian Incao, doctor of oriental medicine and acupuncture. They will attempt to identify the core spiritual elements common to both eastern and western streams of healing, and how they relate to today’s medical issues.
One session per day will be devoted to practical demonstrations of acupuncture and other techniques of Chinese medicine using volunteers from among the participants. There will be a viewing of the new documentary "Rethinking Cancer" which Dr. Incao participated in.
PHILIP INCAO, MD has had an active general practice of anthroposophic medicine since 1973, in rural upstate New York and later in Denver, CO. He was featured in the July/August, 2003 Mothering magazine article, “The Healing Crisis: Don’t Worry Mom, I’m Just Growing! In September 2006 he moved to Crestone, Colo. where he continues to practice part-time. Dr. Incao writes regularly for Lilipoh Magazine. Dr. Incao’s essays on children’s health are included in the book The Vaccination Dilemma, edited by Christine Murphy (Lantern Books). He is working on a book to be published by SteinerBooks titled Tending the Flame: Toward a New Thinking about Health and Illness
