With the prevalence of digestive system & middle jiao pathology either as a primary complaint or an aspect of the overall presentation in modern clinical practice it is imperative to understand how to diagnose & treat such problems. This is especially true in the field of herbal medicine, where our treatments must enter & take effect via the centre.
To gain a clear, systematic, & clinically applicable understanding of how to treat these issues one must look to the clinical classic of the Shang Han Za Bing Lun (Shang Han Lun & Jin Gui Yao Lue). Zhang Zhong Jing understood that the correct physiological function of the middle jiao was of paramount importance in any & every pathology in the human body, & he clearly demonstrates this in his formula system presented in the Shang Han Za Bing Lun. (In fact he displays such a deep understanding of the physiology of the middle that one could go so far as to say the Shang Han Lun was the original Spleen Stomach school.)
This lecture will explore the presentations of common digestive & middle jiao pathology, including the underlying cause, treatment, & treatment progressions of such symptomology as abdominal & epigastric pain, abdominal & epigastric fullness & distention, nausea & vomiting, reflux, diarrhoea, constipation, & alternating patterns, GI tract bleeding, & GI tract ulcers.
But as any clinician will know these rarely present alone, & one is more commonly faced with a complex presentation involving a multitude of seemingly contradictory symptomology.
As such this lecture will explore commonalities in these presentations, & highlight where the same root pathology will cause multiple symptoms, demonstrating how to address & stage the treatment of these complex presentations involving multiple symptoms.
