Pacific Standard Time PST/PDT (Vancouver BC, Los Angeles CA)

This online course is made up from a six part webinar series taught by Sharon Weizenbaum. It is designed to bring light to some useful yet obscure herbal formulas from the Shang Han Za Bing Lun (Treatise on Damage From Cold and Miscellaneous Illnesses). Beginning with an orientation and introduction to the series, Sharon will then teach the 6 formulas listed below.

  • Module 1 - Introduction to the six part series.
  • Module 2 - Chi Xiao Dou Dang Gui San for allergic skin illnesses, eczema, late menstruation, and vaginitis.
  • Module 3 - Dang Gui Bei Mu Ku Shen Wan for urinary tract infections, inhibited urination in pregnancy, and constipation in pregnancy.
  • Module 4 - Ma Huang Fu Zi Xi Xin Tang for PCOS, thyroid cyst, uterine, anal or eyelid prolapse, and asthma.
  • Module 5 - Fu Zi Geng Mi Tang for diarrhea, abdominal pain, post-surgical or post-partum abdominal pain, and nausea in pregnancy.
  • Module 6 - Yi Yi Fu Zi Bai Jiang San for intestinal abscess, scaly skin conditions. Impetigo, and middle ear infection.

Each formula is a window into understanding how physiology can go wrong, what happens when it goes wrong, how to recognize this detour from correct physiology and how to treat it with Chinese formulas. Hence each formula discussion is also a lesson in physiology from a classic formula perspective. Classic physiology is an area that Sharon Weizenbaum is uniquely able to teach. She offers a perspective that is extremely practical and clarifying, allowing students to place formulas easily into their repertoire.

Most modules include an ebook for each formula prepared by Sharon Weizenbaum in addition to the slide handouts and lecture.

Goals and Objectives:

  1. To give students new tools to diagnose and treat common illnesses such as skin diseases, asthma, prolapse, and GI distress with some simple and accessible classic formulas.
  2. To teach some useful formulas that may otherwise be overlooked.
  3. To deepen understanding of classic physiology and patho-physiology.
  4. To deepen understanding of individual herbs within formulas.
  5. To inspire students to study classic formula theory as a profound way of approaching Chinese medicine.
