Jake Fratkin, OMD, LAc, instructor of the extremely well-received Integrating Functional Medicine with TCM series , which covered topics from Adrenal Fatigue to Detox Protocols for the Liver and Kidney, returns with a new program.
Tonics can be overused, or underused. TCM practitioners often start treatment with tonics, which often sabotages the need to prioritize underlying excess conditions. However, tonics become important once excesses are treated, or when patients arrive with frank deficiencies of qi, blood, yin or yang, especially as they age. A number of modern formulas have emerged that boost the classical repertoire.
In this course, Jake will discuss using modern herbal products to treat deficiency conditions.
- The student will have an overview of Western medical criteria for aging, fatigue, and general depletion.
- The student will be able to identify and differentiate various TCM syndromes relating to deficiencies of qi, blood, yin, yang and jing.
- The student will be able to identify and differentiate classical and modern Chinese herbal formulas appropriate for tonification according to TCM parameters.
