Course Overview

Some classic theory doesn't actually work. In school, we are taught this theory as if it works, but it never has and never will; an example of this is, 'Ear ringing is Kidney Yin Deficiency.' Treatments that Tonify Kidney Yin do not get rid of ear ringing. This course discusses why false theory is kept in the canon (hint: tradition) and also how to successfully treat some of the problems for which we've learned false theory. The opposite law is also true. We learn in school that certain health problems are incurable. Usually, this is because western medicine has deemed them incurable or because the false theory never works. In the presentation, examples are shared of 'incurable' problems that are actually quite easy to treat.

Course Objectives

  • Depth will be added to an English-speaking practitioner's understanding of the vocabulary and phraseology of Chinese Medicine.
  • The student will learn about cryptic aphorisms, mistranslations, and various error accumulations that have spanned over centuries.
  • The student will have a better understanding of the implications of Channel Theory from an electromagnetic, 21st-century perspective.

Course Outline

0 hrs - 15 min
In this class, classic Chinese medical theory that everyone knows but doesn't actually work will be covered, and examples will be explored. Practical methods for a very common condition that often accompanies tinnitus will be examined as well.
15 min - 30 min
Also discussed is why structural problems don’t respond nearly as well to acupuncture, herbs, moxa, or cupping, as they do to Yin Tui Na. An introduction to Yin Tui Na theory is provided, as well as some examples.
30 min - 45 min
In addition, health problems that are considered “incurable” in Chinese medicine such as bipolar syndrome, Parkinson's, etc., will be discussed. These notions will be examined in-depth, and how treatment using Channel Qi methods can alleviate and treat these conditions.
45 min - 1 hrs
Finally, the class considers an overview as to what does and what does not respond quickly to Chinese medicine, which includes an overview on pathogens, injuries, and other scenarios.
Dr. Janice Walton-Hadlock is a passionate teacher and a pleasure to learn from. Her teaching opens us to another level of knowledge in oriental medicine that brings a new potential to one's practice.

Janet S. - United States
Janice is an amazingly engaging entertaining presenter. She makes it easy to follow along with her and start think outside of the box of standard TCM teachings. I'm looking forward to watching more lectures in this series and to reading her books.
