Pulse diagnosis has traditionally been revered as Chinese medicine's cardinal diagnostic practice by many Chinese medical scholars. However, because of the difficulty in mastering pulse taking, pulse diagnosis has unfortunately been reduced to confirming a diagnosis arrived by other diagnostic techniques, rather than being a reliable diagnostic tool in itself.
Dr. Jimmy Chang, renowned pulse diagnostician and herbalist with over 30 years of innovative, clinical, and practical experience, shows how to effectively utilize pulse taking to its full diagnostic potential. Dr. Chang is one of the very few clinicians who not only commands the knowledge, but who is willing to impart the invaluable lessons of how to integrate TCM pulse taking into diagnosing western biomedical conditions. Furthermore, Dr. Chang shares his thinking behind how he prescribes herbal formulations based on both TCM and western perspectives.
In part II of this three part series, learn Dr. Chang's Pulsynergy "Special Pulses," which reflects today's most commonly seen conditions, such as angina pectoris, gallstones, high cholesterol, and more. Dr. Chang breaks down the pulses into their basic components—shape, jump, and level—and explains their significance and general indications. Beyond that, learn the pulses of the Eight Extra meridians and their significance. The information divulged in this class cannot be found in any classic or contemporary books.
Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:
Know the descriptions of each special pulse and which pulses are shapes, jumps, levels, or complete pulses.
Know the general indications of the pulses and associate them with modern biomedical conditions.
Know the pulse locations and clinical significance of the Eight Extra meridians.
Be able to correlate general herbal formulas to each of the different pulses.
