Über dieses Seminar

Who can benefit from this course?

This course is suitable for practitioners with a basic understanding of the organ syndromes of Chinese medicine. For example, doctors, acupuncture practitioners, Western herbalists, and Chinese herbalists. No prior training in Western herbs or Chinese herbs is required.

Note: This training is about Western herbs, although a few Chinese herbs are included.

Combining Western Herbs, Chinese Medicine, and Phytopharmacology

Jeremy has developed a new system that successfully integrates three paradigms:

  • Western herbal tradition
  • Chinese medicine
  • Phytopharmacology

This 15-day training provides the foundation for this system, and is the foundation for safe and effective treatment, using Western herbs.

Practical training

The 15-day training emphasizes clinical practice, and participants are encouraged to use the herbs in clinical practice from the second day of the training, and given full details of dose, dispensing and safety.

New system of Diagnosis and Treatment

Jeremy has developed a new practical system for diagnosis and treatment that can be used in both acupuncture and herbal medicine. This system is useful for beginners and advanced users alike. This system makes choice of single herbs and herb combinations quick, easy, and accurate.

4 Imbalances and 5 Organs

The heart of this new system is the concept that all illness can be defined in terms of the 4 main things that go wrong with energy of the body: Deficiency, Stagnation, Disturbance, and Excess. The principles of treatment to correct these Imbalances are tonify, move, calm, and drain respectively.

Differential Questions

There are over 90 different Organ syndromes in Chinese medicine. Jeremy's system simplifies this complexity by organizing these syndromes in terms of the 4 Imbalances. And for each syndrome, 3 Differential Questions are given that distinguish it from similar syndromes. These Differential Questions are easily understood by patients, and make differential diagnosis and herb choice much easier for the practitioner.
