According to Bob Flaws, Western patients rarely exhibit the wind heat exterior pattern we are all taught so early in our TCM education. Plus, they rarely exhibit purely exterior and purely replete patterns — even in the midst of an acute upper respiratory tract infection. In this one-hour lecture, Bob shares his observations on the most common combinations of patterns he sees in Western patients with colds and flus and discusses his opinion on the best guiding formula for the majority of these patients.
