All across the world, there are people that need medical attention, yet do not have the means to access it. Whether it be the need for medicine, the need for surgery or the need for integrative and alternative medical treatments, humanitarian medicine is a necessary means of relief. There are many different reasons that a clinician might go on a humanitarian trip and there are many different treatments that a clinician might be able to provide — but would it not help for a clinician to diversify their treatment abilities?
In today’s blog, we will be discussing in depth what humanitarian medicine is, and a couple of the ways that you, as a medical professional, can expand your treatment knowledge and best be able to help others.
What Is Humanitarian Medicine?
As you can likely guess, humanitarian medicine refers to medicine that is paired with humanitarian efforts. Humanitarianism is essentially a view that all human beings deserve respect and dignity and that they should be treated equally regardless of their situation. Paired with medicine, humanitarianism seeks the goal to simply reduce suffering from medical issues, or situations that might be conducive to creating medical issues. When medical facilities, organizations, and individual professionals practice humanitarian medicine it is with the goal to provide equal medical opportunities to everyone. But how can you learn to practice humanitarian medicine?
Learning To Practice Humanitarian Medicine
Practicing humanitarian medicine is not necessarily treating people with a certain style of medical treatments, but is rather treating the people that need treatment but do not have access to said treatment opportunities. Medical organizations like the Sovereign Order of Hospitallers of St. John are known for providing medical aid, as well as recognition to organizations that provide aid to those who do not have access to it.
Grandmaster Stanley Ngui, a knight of the Sovereign Order of Hospitallers of St. John has completed such humanitarian medical services in multiple countries where medical attention is not as easily accessible as our own. Providing aid in countries like Haiti and Peru, Grandmaster Stanley Ngui has first-hand experience providing humanitarian medicine, as well as naturopathic treatment to those in need. But what is the most important part of humanitarian medicine? It is not the type of treatment that is provided, but rather that treatment is provided at all.
Humanitarian Medicine And The NGUI-MATRIX
As an experienced provider of humanitarian aid to others, grandmaster Stanley Ngui has seen the treatments that work, and the ones that don’t. While sometimes traditional medical practices can provide relief to those experiencing pain, other times it may not — being part of the reason why grandmaster Stanley Ngui has created a naturopathic treatment system known as the NGUI-MATRIX. His innovative medical techniques do not utilize traditional medicine but instead offers the patient relief from pain by addressing their body’s energy, and acupoints that can relieve, or rebalance, the abnormalities that the affected person is experiencing. But where can you learn this innovative humanitarian treatment and others like it?
Learning To Practice Humanitarian Medicine And Aid
As a clinician, we do not have to remind you that part of the medical profession is continuous learning, as continued medical education conferences and continuing medical education credits are something that every so often you must deal with. Luckily, if you are interested in learning more about the NGUI-MATRIX naturopathic treatment, and other innovative treatments like it, you can at the upcoming 2018 Integrative, Natural, and Humanitarian Medicine Conference in Toronto on October 27 and 28, or in an individual conference where the NGUI-MATRIX system will be taught the following day, October 29. If you are interested in learning from some of the top experts in their given fields, we strongly suggest that you attend one, or both, of these conferences.
Upon completing these continuing medical education courses in Toronto, you will be better able to offer a broader spectrum of treatments — whether that be in your personal practice, or while you are on your humanitarian endeavors.
If you have any questions about the NGUI-MATRIX we urge you to check out our website or contact us today. And don’t forget to get your tickets before they are gone! We look forward to seeing you at one of our continuing medical education conferences in Toronto soon!
