*Discounted price for logged-in JCM subscribers only: £54.63

Dr. Heiner Fruehauf's master class on Chinese herbal medicine deepens the lifelong learner’s mastery of herbal prescribing by rooting their understanding in classical principles and practices. It accommodates the needs and interests of all levels, from students of Chinese medicine and newer practitioners to seasoned practitioners who are ever-refining their capacity to successfully treat any condition presenting in the clinic.

For each of eight major herb families, Heiner describes the energetic properties of the lead herb, common herb pairs, and the major herbal formulas. Case examples are presented to provide a clinical context for learning the indications for particular formulas within each family. With this base of knowledge, practitioners can stand on firm ground while being flexible in their ability to design herbal treatments that effectively treat the complex patterns manifesting in our increasingly out-of-balance world.

In the second session, Heiner continues to explore representative formulas in the Danggui family. He discusses their historical context, dosages, formula architecture, therapeutic actions, indications, and clinical applications. The focus is on Danggui Sini Tang and Wuzhuyu Tang. Case studies and discussions of Mama Pearls, Evergreen Pearls and Ginkgo Pearls are used to explain how to modify/combine formulas to address specific presenting patterns.
