Pulse and Tongue and Other Forms of Clinical Evaluation with Matthew Wood MS (Herbal Medicine) Registered Herbalist (American Herbalism Guild)
Pulse and tongue diagnosis are essential to the proper use of herbs because they discover in the sickness the underlying energetic patterns – hot, cold, damp, dry, tense, relaxed, etc. They provide an evaluation that is similar to but different from the biomedical diagnosis. Herbs work better when we understand their indications and use in terms of energetics because Nature is inherently energetic: hot, cold, damp, etc.
This class is intended for serious students and practitioners of herbal medicine who are interested in enhancing their skills with holistic evaluation. We will work on each other.
