In this course David will be reviewing all of the available pediatric ready-made formulas that can be bought online. There are a number of companies making herbal formulas specific to children, but figuring which one to use and when can be difficult. Plus, many of the formulas overlap in their functions, making it further difficult to understand which formulas are useful for specific ailments.
The course is designed to be used as reference material for practitioners to refer to when deciding which formulas to prescribe. Formulas examined treat syndromes such as external attack, cough, pneumonia, asthma, bedwetting, constipation, diarrhea, digestive weakness, and mental emotional disorders such as ADHD and insomnia.
Each formula is described according to which herbs it contains, what symptoms it treats, and is then compared to other similar formulas to help practitioners understand which formula is best in a particular situation.
Companies examined include Blue Poppy, Kan Herbals, Golden Flower, Little Treasures (Su Wen), Little Fishes (China Herb Co), Health Concerns, and Cathay Herbal (Australia). The video lecture also includes a power point designed to used as a reference text.
David Allen, L.Ac., DACM, specializes in TCM for pediatrics and is also a faculty member at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.

Understanding Ban Xia Xie Xin Tang (BXXXT), its stucture and mechanics, provides insights into the importance of the qi dynamic in managing gastrointestinal problems. A member of the harmonising group of formulas, BXXXT demonstrates how the use of herbs with opposing natures and directional tendencies can drive and restore normal qi movement. While the main focus is on the middle burner qi dynamic, the principle can be extended to assist in rectifying other qi dynamics, the Heart Kidney axis, Spleen Lung (ying wei dysharmony) etc. We look at the directional tendencies of herbs and how to combine them to suit specific purposes.
