One of the key differences between Chinese medicine (CM) and other systems of medicine is the unique understanding in CM of zang-fu physiology and pathomechanisms. Through his translation and study of source texts, Bob Damone provides participants in this class the chance to see Chinese medicine in a new and clearer light, presenting the integrated roles of each CM viscera and bowel in health and disease. Don’t miss this opportunity to develop a more mature and clinically viable understanding of CM physiology and pathomechanisms.
In this class you will:
• Develop a clearer understanding of Chinese medical physiology as a coordinated system, not as isolated units with disconnected functions
• Increase your understanding of zang-fu physiology and pathomechanisms by studying reliable translations of Chinese language sources, including classical texts such as the Nei Jing (Inner Canon) and the Nan Jing (Classic of Difficult Issues)
• Go beyond English textbook presentations of zang-fu physiology
• Explore CM pathology by gaining a clearer understanding of pathomechanisms—why and how zang-fu function and relationships can lead to disease
• Increase your clinical mastery by strengthening your CM foundation
