About this course

Many students and practitioners could benefit from a system for fast and clear differentiation of Chinese syndromes, and a
fast, clear system of choosing herbs and points.


Jeremy Ross has developed a new system of diagnosis and treatment that can be applied for any discipline using Chinese Medicine. The basis of this system is classifying patients, herbs, points, Chinese syndromes, and all diseases according to an innovative system of four imbalances and five organs. A system of three key questions helps to differentiate each main Chinese syndrome. The practitioner can ask the patient these questions to make differentiation faster and easier, and more thorough.


Major subjects will include:

  • how to compose and modify herb combinations

  • the system of four imbalances and five organs

  • (free interactive pdf)

  • five-stage differential question process

  • three differential questions for each main syndrome of the

  • Chinese organ systems

  • acupuncture points and Western herb combinations
