The Course Will Cover…

Diagnosis and treatment according to the Classical Chinese Medicine guidelines of Jingui Yaolue, the classic “Prescriptions of the Golden Cabinet”. The treatment of illnesses contracted from the outside is described in the Shang Han Lun (SHL). With all scenarios, of pathologies following their path without treatment, with mistreatment in a normal way. The Jingui Yaolue completes this, with the treatment of complex illnesses (Za Bing). Some are still contracted from the outside but onto chronic pathological states, some are caused from the inside (mental emotionally), some are contracted in “uncommon” ways, like animal bites, traumas, vaccines etc.

Both books together, the Shang Han Za Bing Lun, contains the treatments of all diseases out there. The classical knowledge of physiology and pathology leads to the understanding of diseases. The Jinggui Yaolue recipes (as the ones of the SHL) are based on one of the oldest works of Chinese Medicine, the Huang Ti Nei Jing, often referred to as the “Yellow Emperor’s Book of Internal Medicine”.

Based on the original texts of Jingui Yaolue, disease patterns are decoded, the diagnosis is made and the treatment is determined. Diagnostics/treatments with classical recipes are discussed and the underlying pulse diagnostics are practiced.

We always work practically (during retreats) so that you are as able as possible to apply what you have learned in your clinical practice.

In person retreat will be held in Amherst, MA at the White Pine Healing Arts Clinic
