Bleeding is an unwanted loss of pure substance in Chinese medicine. As such, it is very deleterious to one’s health and well-being. Hence, stopping bleeding is considered a tip (or branch, i.e., acute) condition which requires speedy treatment.
In Chinese medicine, there are only four mechanisms of any and all bleeding. If one knows these mechanisms, then it is easy to specifically search out the signs and symptoms of the patterns those mechanisms present. In other words, knowing these four mechanisms makes positing one’s working hypothesis quick and easy. One does not have to consider any and all patterns. One only has to discriminate four patterns
In this one-hour class, Bob will present a discussion of these four basic mechanisms of any and all pathological bleeding, insight into the inter-relationships between these four mechanisms, as well as herbal treatment methodologies for these mechanisms as they actually present themselves in real life clinical practice.
Goals of this course:
• To understand the four causes of pathological bleeding
• To understand how these disease mechanisms mutually arise
• How to treat patients experiencing pathological bleeding with Chinese Medicine
