Combining Herbal Formulas: Exterior and Interior Conditions (Parts 1 & 2): There are advantages to combining prepared formulas over compounding with a single herb pharmacy.
For those who don’t have the proper amount of space, ventilation, or washing facilities, dispensing sealed formulas from the factory in combinations allows for a safe method of customizing without the need to open any bottles and handling the contents. It also is very useful as an initial prescription, as it enables the practitioner to alter the dosages of the formulas when feedback from the patient is received. In this webinar we will look at formulas for exterior and interior conditions, case studies using this method will be shared, as well as some scientific studies that show the effect of cooking herbs together to make granular formulas versus mixing single granules.

Matching Formula and Pattern in Kampo Medicine (Parts 1 & 2): The contemporary practice of Kampo still bases itself on this method of “Matching Formula and Pattern” so that each formula pattern (方証 Ho Sho/Fang Zheng) acts itself as the differential diagnosis for the patient. The study and practice of Kampo thus focuses entirely on grasping above all the “story” unique to each formula unit expressed in terms of signs and symptoms including a pulse, tongue and abdomen finding in each case and matching it with the patient’s presentation directly. The role of abstract logic in determining theoretical pattern differentiations based on organ disharmony is downplayed in favor of seeking the perfect match between the patient’s “pattern” (証 Sho/Zheng) and that of the formula that most directly corresponds to it. This 2-part series webinar will explore this process in detail and offer case examples of how it works in practice.

Human Growth & Development Extraordinary Vessels (Part 1): Chinese medicine includes many observations on human growth and development. From embryologic stages and throughout the whole life-cycle, we see wisdom that can be gained from looking through the different lenses classical thought has to offer. This course will consider growth and development from the viewpoint of the Five Phases, as well as consider what it means to say that “the channels continue to develop throughout the life-cycle”. We will then also consider the roles that each of the Extraordinary Vessels plays in development, and in making us who we are as individuals and members of our many family groups.
David Miller, MD., L.Ac. is one of the only physicians in the U.S. dually board certified in Pediatrics and Traditional Chinese Medicine (including Chinese herbalism).

Dr. Miller sees children and adults, but specializes in pediatrics and believes that children should have access to the same broad range of healthcare options as adults. He provides options for parents seeking to integrate other sophisticated medical modalities with the allopathic care their children are already receiving from a primary care pediatrician, and for adults who wish to expand their own treatment options. He also provides options for Western medical practitioners seeking to work collaboratively in order to expand the care their patients are receiving.

Kampo Patterns & Associated Formulas (Part 1): The unique Kampo system is the Japanese approach to classic herbal medicine. And while the Japanese practice using the principles of Chinese Medicine, their approach to herbal diagnosis and treatment vary from the TCM style. Herbal diagnosis, currently practiced in Japan is provided by physicians only, and many formulas are covered by national insurance. Its premise is based on integrating a patient’s symptoms with their abdominal examination, and arriving at a pattern of treatment that fits a specific Chinese herbal formula. The formulas are derived from the Shang Han Lun and Jin Gui Yao Lue. This examination is based on various palpatory maneuvers that determine the strength or weakness, tightness or laxity of specific areas in the abdomen. Each of these areas corresponds to a principle herb and its family of formulas that point to the treatment required to correct and balance the body. In Part 1 of this 2-part series, Dr. Levy will introduce the history of Kampo and begin going over multiple abdominal exams to showcase where to palpate and what these exams reveal.
