Qi Transformation Theory Z'ev Rosenberg, Lac

The modern clinician often encounters patients with chronic, complex disorders. Many practitioners find their diagnoses lacking consistency, tending either to over-simplification of the diagnosis or not being able to organize clinical information coherently. Dr. Li Dong-yuan, famous for the Pi Wei Lun/Treatise on the Spleen and Stomach, was an expert in designing elegant diagnosis and treatment strategies utilizing acumoxatherapy, herbal medicine and dietetics. While based on the central importance of the spleen/stomach in human health, Dr. Li also made use of wu-xing/five phases and wu yun liu qi/five movements and six qi in his diagnosis and treatment plans. In this workshop, participants will learn how to develop a coherent, complete diagnosis and treatment strategy based on Dr. Liís work. Some of his most important prescriptions will also be covered.
