The Importance of Seasons in Diagnosis through Pulse & Complexion/Colour
By the end of this course, you will
- Identify the chapters of the Neijing which focus on pulse and colour/complexion, and what you can learn from them.
- Determine seasonal pulses in order to differentiate between health & disease.
- Distinguish between a healthy & a diseased complexion within the context of seasonal diagnosis.
- Be aware of contradictory signs between pulse and complexion within the context of seasonal diagnosis
- Learn ways to hone your diagnostic skills in your everyday life.
Pulse taking & body diagnosis are two very important tools for diagnosis; but both can be challenging so some even give up on anything more than an overall basic pulse reading or feel totally overwhelmed by the complexity of specific pulse systems. What we often do not realise is that diagnosis of both pulse and complexion is based on an understanding of the seasons.
So it is great to discover that the canon of Chinese Medicine, the HDNJ, discusses pulse qualities and gives very clear guidance on the importance of combining pulse qualities with complexion for accurate diagnosis within the context of seasons. Using the seasons in diagnosis is a very useful and under-appreciated area of the Huangdi Neijing, as it means we can make an accurate diagnosis from basic pulse qualities alongside visual clues from the patient’s complexion. This presentation draws on texts from the HDNJ to demonstrate how you can develop confidence in honing and integrating these diagnostic skills into everyday practice.
