From head to foot” – effectively treatment of 100 diseases on the background of the classics – Part III
Nine Kinds of Modern Miscellaneous Diseases
Treatments according to Classical TCM Luo Mai Theories
Part III of an ongoing seminar series with Dr. Jie Li – each part can be booked separately.
In the classical text Nan Jing, it states: ‘Qi stagnation will first induce qi disease, then it will cause blood stasis, the blood diseases will occur secondly.’ (Issue 22) Huang Di Nei Jing gives the principle for treatment of blood stasis related diseases: ‘If the diseases are in the blood, the blood luo mai must be treated and regulated.’(SW, 62) These are the original theories of ‘Jiu Bing Ru Luo’ (Blood Luo Mai Theory in Chronic Diseases). Until Qing dynasty, Ye Tian Shi in his book ‘Lin Zheng Zhi Nan Yi An’ pointed out that ‘ Meridian mainly governs qi and luo mai governs blood.’
‘Beginning of diseases mostly involve meridian system and chronic diseases will involve blood luo mai.’ Therefore, there is a saying in TCM: ‘Chronic and miscellaneous diseases mostly relate to blood stasis and phlegm accumulation of Luo Mai.’
With more than thirty years thoroughly studying TCM classics and clinical practice experiences in the west, Dr. Li Jie has been focusing on Luo Mai Diseases (LMD). He has summarized that today, in the west; the top 10 chronic diseases mostly involve the blood luo mai system in TCM.
They are as following:
1. Nao Luo Bing (Brain diseases)
2. Ying Luo Bing (Thyroid gland diseases)
3. Fei Luo Bing (Lung diseases)
4. Xin Bao Luo Bing (Heart coronary diseases)
5. Wei Chang Luo Bing (Digestive system diseases)
6. Gong Bao Luo Bing (Gynecological diseases)
7. Ru Luo Bing (Breast diseases)
8. Fu Luo Bing (Skin diseases)
9. San Jiao Luo Bing (Lymph diseases and some autoimmune diseases)
In this series of lectures, above diseases, their etiology and pathological mechanisms will be deeply discussed in classical TCM theories. Their TCM treatments, including classical acupuncture and herbal medicine will be given. In the clinical practice parts, the principle is: ‘Using 100 classical herbs (or 100 classical acupuncture points) and 100 classical formulas (classical herbal formulas and classical acupuncture point combinations) to treat 100 modern miscellaneous diseases.’
All of the lectures will be based on TCM classics; Huang Di Nei Jing, Nan Jing, Shen Nong Ben Cao jing, Shang Han Lun, Jin Gui Yao Lue, Zhen Jiu Jia Yi Jing and Zhen Jiu Da Cheng.
Part III: Wei Chang Luo Mai Diseases (Gastric Diseases)
1. Wei Chang Luo Mai diseases
Wei Chang Luo Mai includes mainly two parts in Classical Chinese Medicine, luo mai of internal braches of meridians, such as luo mai of SP, Liv, GB, St, SI and LI, also their xue luo (blood luo mai). In generally speaking, these luo mai systems relatively contain lesser qi and more blood. Therefore, internal qi deficiency, damp-phlegm accumulations and blood stasis might be the important pathological mechanisms of modern gastric diseases. CCM has long historical and successful clinical experiences of treating these diseases. In this lecture, Dr. Li Jie will focus on using Jing Fang medicine (Zhang Zhong Jing’s formulas) and Ling Shu Jing classical acupuncture to explain and treat these diseases. The related pathological mechanisms, CCM diagnosis, particularly classical pulse diagnosis and classical herbal formulas and acupuncture points combinations will be practically explained.
The following related common modern gastric diseases could be involved:
1. Oral disease
2. Oesophageal disease
3. Stomach disease
4. Small intestine disease
5. Large intestine disease
6. Liver disease
7. Pancreatic disease
8. Gallbladder and biliary tract disease
The related clinical case studies will be discussed in the lecture.
In addition clinical cases study and training, particularly the related pulse diagnosis training will be emphasized.
