for Acute Illness
One of the best ways to treat chronic illness is to deal with it in the initial acute phase. Treat it well, and resolve it. Just like caring for a garden, pull the weeds when they are small, and before they have seriously taken root.
In this conversation we discuss using the principles and methods of Saam Acupuncture to treat acute illness.
Meet Your instructor
Toby Daly, PhD, L.Ac
I began studying Chinese medicine in 1997 with Sunim Doam, a Korean monk trained in the Saam tradition. In 2002, I earned a master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine upon completion of training at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco and Chengdu University in China.
During my four years of training in San Francisco, I interned with Dr. Angela Wu who taught me how to apply the lofty theories I was studying in school into the pragmatic setting of a busy clinic.
In 2013, I developed the Chinese Nutritional Strategies app to provide digital access to the wealth of Chinese dietary wisdom. In 2016, proving once again that some people never learn, I completed a PhD in Classical Chinese Medicine under the guidance of 88th generation Daoist priest Jeffery Yuen.
My current focus is on sharing my 20 years of clinical experience with the Saam tradition.
