In the Chinese medicine tradition, understanding and resonating with the spirit of the organs leads to better diagnosis and more effective, powerful treatment. Behind most symptoms lies a disturbance of spirit, and the more alert a practitioner to the nature of such a disturbance the more effective the treatment is likely to be. John Hamwee explores the spirit of each organ not in analytical, rational, summarising language but through life stories that express the nature and tendencies of the organ at a deep level. Through the stories of 12 people that embody the unique spirit of each organ, he shows the physical, emotional and spiritual nature of each, and their related tendencies and possibilities for improved wellbeing. Written to give Chinese medicine practitioners new ways to reflect on each organ in the most complete way, this book is also a lighthearted yet profound introduction to the heart of the Chinese medical tradition.
This textbook on diagnosis in Chinese medicine is unique in its clarity and accessibility. Divided into two sections, it is a comprehensive diagnostic manual. The first section explains how to collect and collate the information required to formulate a diagnosis and is divided into four approaches: visual, palpation, interrogation and listening/smelling. The second section describes the various diagnostic models in Chinese medicine, including The Eight Principles; zangfu organ pattern; the Six stages, four levels and san jiao; the twelve regular channels and eight extraordinary vessels; and the Five Phases.
Emotional trauma can upset the harmony of the body and reduce the body's ability to heal and regulate itself. Once the traumas are identified and treated, the body will function at an optimum level and will respond to treatments for other conditions present. This book integrates the multi-diagnostic and treatment methods existing in Chinese medicine, and contains diagnostics such as facial, pulse, tongue, and channel palpation diagnosis. Treatments include acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, qigong, shamanic drumming, and lifestyle and nutritional recommendations. Many types of emotional traumas and their manifestations are presented, including fear, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, depression, mood swings, insomnia and sensory organ impairment. How to prevent future emotional trauma will be discussed, and case studies are included to show the application of theory in practice.
