  • The Can and Cannot Lines of the Jingui Yuhan Jing

    8 Lessonsin
    • Online - The Can and Cannot Lines of the Jingui Yuhan Jing - USD$218.20 every 6 months and a USD$872.80 sign-up fee

    Dr. Versluys presents on a selection of chapters from the Jade Envelope in the Golden Cabinet or Jingui Yuhan Jing. This is a classic that displays content from both the Song dynasty Shanghan Lun as well as the Jingui Yaolue, and is compiled by Wang Shuhe in the Jin dynasty, based on the scrolls he retrieved. Scrolls five and six include important chapters on treatment indication and contra-indication not included in the standard Shanghan Lun and Jingui Yaolue. These chapters will elucidate guidelines on when the treatment methods of sweating, purging, emitting, warming, fire treatment, moxa, needling, and water treatment, are indicated or contra-indicated. And while in the regular Shanghan Lun, some clauses indeed address the same subject matter; the scope and structure of these important chapters exceed anything seen elsewhere.

  • Dr. Zeng Rongxiu Case Studies: Part Two

    6 Lessonsin
    • Online - Dr. Zeng Rongxiu Case Studies: Part Two - USD$110.20 every 6 months and a USD$440.80 sign-up fee

    This one-day course is the companion-seminar to the original Zeng case study course presented in 2014. In this course, Dr. Versluys presents some of Dr. Zeng Rongxiu’s early case studies from the 1970’s. Most of the Dr. Zeng case studies that we know today are produced during his later years of clinical practice, most notably the late 1990’s to early 2000’s. But the early case studies of the 1970’s are all records of Dr. Zeng’s clinical practice during the time when he was still actively studying with Dr. Tian. As such, these case studies are sometimes indistinguishable from Tian cases, and exude a rare freshness less obvious in Dr. Zeng’s later cases. From studying these cases, we can see not just Dr. Zeng’s style, but also clearly see Dr. Tian’s undeniable style of clinical practice. Dr. Zeng’s book of case studies published in China mostly documents case studies from his later years and does not carry many of the 1970’s case studies. This makes this seminar offering extra unique! Presenter: Arnaud Versluys, PhD, MD (China), Lac   NCCAOM 7 credits (CH)

  • Application of Shanghan Lun Formulas Along the Five Movements and Six Qi of the Neijing

    • Online - Application of Shanghan Lun Formulas Along the Five Movements and Six Qi of the Neijing - USD$545.40 / year and a USD$2,181.60 sign-up fee

    ‘Five Movements and Six Qi’ wuyun liuqi 五運六氣is the common name of a theoretical system that documents patterns in meteorological changes observed during the sixty year Chinese calendar, and how these changes affect human beings subject to these influences. The system also describes basic guidelines for the herbal medicine treatment of the conditions caused by these six influences. The theory was documented in chapters 66-71 and 74 of the Suwen. These seven chapters, which make up approximately one third of the entire text, originally existed as a separate work titled the Yinyang Dalun 陰陽大論 or Great Treatise on Yin and Yang which was referenced in Zhang Zhongjing’s preface to the Shanghan Lun. The chapters were rediscovered after being lost between Han and Tang dynasties and added back into the corpus of the Neijing by Wang Bing in his 762 CE edition. The Shanghan Lun is the first clinical handbook explaining the treatment of this kind of disorders caused by external invasion. The disease manifestations, as well as their transmutation and progression with time, are described in great detail in the Shanghan Lun, as is their treatment with the canonical herbal formulas. The Yun Qi system is unique as the grandfather […]
