The Treatment of Knotty Diseases: How Effective Use of Classic Formulas can Transform your Clinic and Practice - Distance Education

Sharon Weizenbaum has profoundly changed me. She explains things in such a way that makes so much sense. She makes the intangible ideas, tangible. The way she describes things is like a beautiful dance. She has sparked my stagnant learning and has made me excited for learning and for treating people. I am so grateful for her and cannot wait to take more of her courses. I feel like the pda's could have been worth a little more. I also wanted to say I had a million aha moments, my mind was blown. I also loved how prepared she was with the pictures and the videos and diagrams etc....really helped.

REGISTRATION INCLUDES A 335-PAGE E-BOOK ON CASE STUDIES AND DISCUSSIONS ON VARIOUS FORMULAS

There’s a difference between a good herbal treatment and a correct herbal treatment.

We all can work at a level in which our patients do well enough on the herbs we give them. However, when we have had the experience of stumbling upon a truly accurate herbal formula and seeing our patient’s complex issues resolve almost magically, we get a glimpse into the true power of Chinese herbal medicine. Coming upon a correct formula with intention rather than by accident can be a daily occurrence in your clinic.

The modern use of Classic Formulas.

There is much talk these days about Classic Formulas. Why? In part this is because the formulas from the Shang Han Za Bing Lun work differently than most modern Chinese herbal formulas. How? For example, rather than nourishing Blood or Yin, a classic formula will corrct the boy’s function of producing its own Blood and Yin. Rather than clearing heat from the skin, a classic formula will aim at the deeper mechanism that has allowed heat to accumulate in the skin. Instead of directly draining damp heat, a classic formula corrects the Qi mechanism so that the dampness and heat are resolved. The level of health that is achieved with a Classic formula is often more profound and the results are more long lasting. The formulas are succinct and exact and work like a key in a lock.

It’s not just the Formulas that are unique

The organization of the Shang Han Lun offers a unique diagnostic system that acts as a pathway to the correct formula. Once the correct formula has been determined the ability to treat the chronic, acute, internal and external issues becomes clear. We will study six key formulas through writings and case studies from Sharon Weizenbaum’s private practice as well as teachings from a varied group of Chinese doctors. You will leave with a clear understanding of formula presentation, knowledge of how and when to use these formulas, and the skills for the correct clinical application. In addition, you will have an understanding of the underlying structure of the Shang Han Lun that will enlighten you on the use of a great many other Classic Formulas.

This two-day workshop will give students the basic outline of the diagnostic system of the Shan Han Lun. We will focus on 9 amazingly useful formulas that will illustrate the entire system of the Shang Han Lun in a general way.
