Why (Not How) Herbs Work

Event Host


Overview

We generally know how herbs work either from Chinese or scientific theory or a combination of both. But why do they work? What in the history of plants, animals, and evolution created the benefits of these healthy little bundles? This lecture will examine these questions, in a mind-opening and scientific (but not overwhelming) approach, by exploring Gaia theory, hormesis and xenohormesis, planetary autopoiesis, DNA and epigenetics, and Plant–Human Coalitions. This will be a logical and philosophical exploration of herbs, why and how co-evolution has played a role in their effectiveness.

Overview

Auricular Medicine is a specialty within Traditional Chinese Medicine that has its roots in the Huang Di Nei Jing and some of its branches in Western Medicine. Using the micro-system of the Auricle, Auricular Medicine has developed into an incredibly sophisticated system of both diagnosis and treatment of all bio-systems of the body. The diagnosis is remarkably comprehensive and accurate. Without a patient interview, or history, the examination alone provides the doctor with more information than the patient’s intake paperwork. Treatment can relieve acute pain within seconds. Dr. TruthSayer’s introduction includes many interesting cases from her clinical practice.

Michael Max

The most important thing I’ve learned in my 20+ of practicing Chinese medicine is that acupuncture works from the inside out. Learning to invite the body’s vitality to bring people into a deeper sense of coherence and wellbeing is something that becomes more intriguing to me as the years pass. These days I split my time between clinical work, writing and hosting the Qiological podcast.
