Traditional Western Herbalism and Naturopathy
With Matthew Wood, AHG and Tim Dymond, ND
~ Reclaiming Vitalism in Medicine
The purpose of these classes is to expand the doctor's clinical skills so that they can evaluate patients from an energetic standpoint. We will be using the six tissue state energetic model (hot, cold, damp, dry, tense, relaxed) and tridoshic typology (vata, pitta, kapha; thin, medium, thick). Cues such as tongue shape and color, pulse, abdominal palpation, facial lines and colors, complexion, and skin condition—all reveal, sometimes at a glance, sometimes after long inquiry, the basic energetic foundation. This in turn dictates accurate and specific use of herbs and other therapeutic tools. In addition, we teach the holistic analysis of the body’s functions: thermoregulation, circulation, digestion, metabolism, elimination, etc.
While these class are designed for naturopathic doctors, non-licensed herbalists are welcome on a case-by-case basis.
