Chinese Disease Diagnosis: The Missing Piece to Solving the Patient Puzzle
Recorded: AUGUST 31, 2021
Length: 2 hours
For many physicians, diagnosis remains a difficult and opaque aspect of practice. There are many lenses, perspectives, theories and ideas which may inform how a practitioner arrives at their diagnosis and because of this, confusion is inevitable.
Rooted in standard, contemporary Chinese medicine, this program introduces an often poorly taught, underutilized yet critical step in the diagnostic process in the modern world.
Chinese Disease categories (bing) are the missing link, the bridge between the pre-established biomedical diseases and appropriate Chinese medical treatment. It is a critical error made by practitioners the world over to begin translating their patient’s diagnoses biomedical disease directly into treatment without considering the crucial intermediate step of reframing the Western disease into the Chinese disease(s) (bing) which best describe it’s clinical manifestations.
This reframing process is part and parcel of contemporary Chinese medicine and it saves the practitioner a lot of time and confusion. In China, TCM student memorize these diseases (bing) along with the most common patterns and formulas associated with them thereby creating mental shortcuts when considering possible patterns. This is the step that is not emphasized or skipped altogether in Western TCM programs.
In this program, Michael utilizes the best resources available in English to teach you how to quickly and easily select and evaluate the most likely patterns associated with your patient’s Western diseases by teaching you how to look up the Chinese disease(s) which correspond to the biomedical diagnosis.
As examples of this process, this program examines several Western disease diagnoses which patients commonly present with (and a couple more complex ones) and how to bridge the gap to the corresponding Chinese diseases and therefore the limited number of patterns and formulas you need to consider in each instance.
This critical step actually limits the amount of work you have to do, the number of questions you need to ask and ultimately the number of formulas you need to consider. What this class makes clear is that no matter how complicated the Western disease, no matter how many syllables the Latin name, Chinese medicine has a disease category that can accommodate the clinical symptoms and therefore can properly reframe the disease in a way that makes sense in our framework to then begin appropriate treatment.
This also ensures a much safer approach to diagnosis because you can never be too far off in your diagnosis which means you can easily modify your approach or go back and reevaluate easily because you know exactly where you went wrong.
Ultimate Tongue Diagnosis Webinar with Clinical Applications and Tongue Photography Tutorial
Recorded: May 9th, 2020
Length: ~3 hrs
Why do you look at your patient’s tongue? Do you have questions in mind already? Do you have a process of what to look for, what that might mean, and then how to proceed?
Do you ever look at your patient’s signs and symptoms and feel like the tongue diagnosis doesn’t seem to match? What do you do then? How are you supposed to proceed with treatment when these things don’t match?
This tongue diagnosis webinar is designed to shed some light on how to properly incorporate tongue diagnosis into your practice.
This course is designed to prepare you for what you will see most often in the clinic – it will not go into ednless what-ifs or possible scenarios you are NOT likely to see. Instead, to make it most clinically relevant, this course is designed to show what we see consistently today in our modern practices with modern peoples and the chronic and modern problems our modern patient base deals with. We will analyze the aspects of the tongue and do so in a case study type fashion. I will show you the qualities I am looking for and I will present case studies of how these people were treated using Chinese herbal medicine.
We will also explore sublingual tongue diagnosis. After spending 2 years doing marketing events in Seattle, WA, I became good friends (albeit cordial competition) with Dr. Beijing Men, who specializes in sublingual tongue diagnosis. I will go through the methods that he taught me and also some of the findings I have discovered on my own from reading thousands of tongues.
This course is about taking your PRACTICE to the next level. Simplifying your diagnosis and putting herbal prescriptions together with increased ease.
This course will be about analyzing real cases. Making diagnoses on real patients and looking at what actually happens. I will also go over how I decided to adjust my formulas or treatment plans. Some examples:
These are all the same patient, different visits, different scenarios over the course of treating the same chief complaints. How will you adjust your treatment plan to account for these changes?
How about this? How do you get from point A to point B? How to you adjust and view this patient?
How do you address this and get results like this?
