Upper, Middle and Lower Class Herbs: An Investigation of Resonance
With Guest: Andrew Nugent-Head
- A look at some issues with translation
- Upper does not always mean better
- We are not concerned with superior or inferior, but rather where an herb has its effect
- Read the preface to the Shang Han Lun
- Choose the level of herb to correctly treat the location of disease
- Yin and Yang are not nouns
- Chinese medicine can be effective for acute, emergent conditions, but much of that knowledge has been lost
- Chinese was not developed in the scholarly teahouse, it was borne of the rigors, troubles, strive and illness that came from war, poor sanitation, epidemics and trauma
- Treating acute pneumonia
- Some uses for high amounts of shi gao
- Introduction to Jing, Qi, Shen
