Course Overview

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 first session devoted to the Dihuang formula family, Heiner discusses the nature of Dihuang as a chief herb, and introduces representative formulas. He discusses their historical context, dosages, formula architecture, therapeutic actions, indications, and clinical applications. The focus is on Jingui Shenqi Wan, Mai Wei Dihuang Wan, Qi Ju Dihuang Wan, Jisheng Shenqi Wan and Yiguan Jian Wan. Case studies and a discussion of Water Pearls are used to explain how to modify/combine formulas to address specific presenting patterns.

  • Describe the energetic properties and actions of Dihuang. Discuss the sourcing and preparation of Dihuang. Explain how the preparation of Dihuang can alter the actions of the herb. Explore common herb pairing with Dihuang formulas.

Reviews

    This course is so deeply educational. If you took part in an acupuncture program without herbal medicine, this course would be a great way to supplement and grow your herbal knowledge. The benefit of the worksheets and quizzes helps me to keep my commitment to myself. The support of the online platform team and the Classical Pearls team exceeded my expectations.
