There is a saying that there is a difference between a good herbal treatment and a correct herbal treatment.   We all can work at a level in which our patients do well enough on the herbs we give them.  However, when we have had the experience of stumbling upon a truly accurate herbal formula and seeing our patients complex issues resolve almost magically, we get a glimpse into the true power of Chinese herbal medicine.  Coming upon a correct formula with intention rather than by accident can be a daily occurrence in your clinic.

This is where correct use of Classic formulas comes in.

There is much talk these days about Classic Formulas.  Why?   For example, rather than nourishing Blood or Yin, a classic formula will correct the bodys function of producing its own Blood and Yin.  Rather than clearing heat from the skin, a classic formula will aim at the deeper mechanism that has allowed heat to accumulate in the skin.  Instead of directly draining damp heat, a classic formula corrects the Qi mechanism so that the dampness and heat are resolved.   The formulas are succinct and exact and they work like a key in a lock.  

However, it is not just the formulas themselves that are unique.  The organization of the Shang Han Lun itself, when understood properly, offers a unique diagnostic system.  It is this system that guides us to the correct formulas.  It is then that the ability of these formulas to treat chronic, acute, internal and external issues becomes clear.

This two-day workshop will give students the basic outline of the diagnostic system of the Shang Han Lun.  We will focus on 6 amazingly useful formulas that will illustrate the entire system in a general way.  In addition this will give students powerful herbal tools that will be immediately applicable in their clinics.  In going deeply into the mechanisms of these formulas, we will develop an understanding of how a healthy body works and how these formulas return the body to health. 

We will look at the dynamics and use of the following formulas through writings and cases from a variety of Chinese doctors and Sharon Weizenbaums own practice.   You will leave with not only a knowledge of how and when to use these formulas, but a deep grasp of the formula presentation that will give you the skills for the correct application of the formula.  You will also leave with an understanding of the underlying structure of the Shang Han Lun that will enlighten you regarding the use of a great many other classic formulas.
