From head to foot” – effectively treatment of 100 diseases on the background of the classics – Part IV
Nine Kinds of Modern Miscellaneous Diseases
Treatments according to Classical TCM Luo Mai Theories
Part IV 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) and100 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 IV: Gong Bao Luo Mai (Gynecological diseases), Ru Luo Mai (Breast diseases), Fu Luo Mai (Skin diseases)
1. Gong Bao and Ru Luo Mai diseases
Gong Bao (womb) and Jing Gong (the Palace of Essence) are the organs associated with classical Chinese medicine in women and men with the reproductive systems. Also the eight extraordinary vessels (Qi Jing Ba Mai), in particular Ren Mai, Chong Mai and Du Mai are directly involved. Another special feature of Gong Bao and Jing Gong is that they are permeated by many blood luo mai (blood vessels); relatively speaking, they have less qi and more blood. Therefore, just like the uterus, ovaries, testicles and prostate, they are susceptible to blood stasis and mucus accumulation. Myomas, endometriosis, ovarian cysts or cancer as well as prostate diseases and cancers are also associated with these areas.
In this course, we will focus on the practical application of the Jing Fang (Zhang Zhong Jing’s formulas) and the Ling Shu acupuncture for the analysis and treatment of the following Western contemporary, complex diseases:
- fibroids with and without western drug treatment
- Endometriosis with and without western drug treatment
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome and ovarian cysts
- Ovarian Cancer with and without western drug Treatment
- Inflammation and cancer of the cervix
- Diseases of the male reproductive system, diseases and cancer of the prostate
Mum Luo Mai (Ru Luo Mai / Chest Luo Mai) is related to stomach, liver and Chong Mai. The area is traversed by many Luo Mais and it is the place where blood is transformed into milk. Diseases and cancer of the mammae are also examined.
2. Fu Luo Mai Disease
In Classical Chinese Medicine, Fu Luo Mai is part of the Tai Yang layer and Tai Yin Lung. There is a link to the stomach, small intestine fire and large intestine damp heat, as well as to blood and heat accumulation in the blood Luo Mai. The specific nature of Fu Luo Mai (skin blood Luo Mai) corresponds to less qi and more blood. According to Classical Chinese Medicine, blood circulation causes water to accumulate, which is why moist or moist heat accumulation and blood stasis are often the clinical manifestations of skin diseases. Skin disorders are a reaction to internal disorders or defense reactions. In this course, Dr. Li Jie provides a deep understanding today’s skin conditions. Jing Fang (Zhang Zhong Jing’s recipes) and the acupuncture of Ling Shu, as well as the clinical experience of masters of Classical Chinese Medicine are presented and explained. In particular, the 12 clinical methods for the treatment of skin diseases of the famous dermatologist of classical Chinese medicine of the last century, Prof. Zhu Ren Kang are discussed:
- Xiao Feng Qing Re Fa: Wind dissipating heat and clarifying)
- Qu Feng San Han Fa: Expelling wind break / Dispelling cold
