The Yijing in Chinese Medicine Clinical Practice – Part 2
Part 2 – The First Two Hurdles to Successful Divination in the Clinic Welcome to the second installment of this article series on Divination in Clinical Practice. If you’re interested in reading the first part – all you have to do is click this link. Today we’ve got a little double-header. Last time we introduced the idea that divination, and in particular the Yijing, might be useful in the clinic. Not just useful, in fact, but potent and transformative, as the oracle itself suggested when we asked the Yi about its own clinical potential (Hexagrams 31 and 49). However, there are some hurdles standing b...

The Yijing in Chinese Medicine Clinical Practice – Part 1
Editor’s Note : This is the first in a series of posts by Jonathan Edwards about the use of the Yijing (I Ching) in Chinese medicine clinical practice. A new topic for the site – it should be an interesting read! Part 1: The Clinician’s Golden Compass Welcome to the first in a series of articles on applying the Yijing in clinical practice. For those not familiar, the Yijing (or I Ching) is an ancient Chinese oracle, or system of divination, with close ties to Classical Chinese Medicine. Speaking as it does in very compressed symbols, the oracle has a reputation for being hard to understand. That’s one of th...

Why I spend all my time up to my eyeballs in Chinese medicine
There is no doubt that I spend the majority of my time everyday thinking about, studying, using and generally drowning myself in Chinese medicine. Don’t get me wrong – I do spend time and energy elsewhere. I love music. I garden. I hang out watching television and movies from time to time. I like to talk about the Portland food scene, and ethics and so on. But all of that just feeds my addiction to the universe of information I have devoted my life to – this particular way of looking at the earth, the heavens, and the human being in between. I am particularly passionate about the ongoing work here at Chin...

Introducing Chinese Medicine Central (the evolution of Deepest Health)
I started Deepest Health in 2007 as a second year student at National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM). I am a person who learns by writing and by teaching, and a blog seemed an ideal way to do both, while also building a potential resource for patients. As it developed, I realized that I wasn’t that interested in writing for patients (though I’ve warmed up to the idea in the last 5 years), but instead found real happiness in discussing various aspects of the medicine with my peers and with practitioners all over the world. After graduation, I decided to experiment with expanding my offerings to include cours...

Book Review: The Moon over Matsushima – an exhaustive look into moxibustion
Books about moxibustion are few and far between. Up until very recently, I wasn’t aware of any books that covered the topic separately that weren’t just poor translations of Chinese clinical manuals. My dear friend and colleague, @bravethevoid, turned me on to “The Moon Over Matsushima”, Merlin Young’s incredibly refreshing, exhaustively researched, and inspiring take on moxibustion, and after considerable effort (keep reading), I was able to finish it. Here’s some of my thoughts on it, I hope they inspire you to read the book and milk it for all the practical hints and exhaustive knowle...

Lifelong learning in Chinese medicine – increasing flexibility and joy
As anybody who has read this blog for any period of time knows, I enjoy studying. As a student, I was always immersed in one book or another, or tasting herbs, or taking yet another extra-curricular seminar. Beyond that, I was always curious about expanding my study techniques in various ways including with technology and with my senses. Since graduating, I’ve had a lot on my plate More than I did as a student, by far. Running my practice (currently in a big growth spurt) and teaching herbs and business at NCNM have dominated my energy more than I imagined they would. These are all good things, of course, and have m...

On sickness and the power of Chinese herbal medicine
Founder’s Note : This is a guest post by third-year CCM student, Melinda Iglesias. Asalways, the guest posters love comments – so feel free to leave some below! I’m hoping to see more from Melinda in the future here on DH. In the meantime, you can find her on Twitter. For three years prior to coming to school at NCNM, I managed a thriving acupuncture clinic. This experience was instructive and influential in my decision to study Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Throughout that time, I had the good fortune of witnessing first-hand scenarios ubiquitous to being a practitioner of Chinese medicine. A favorit...

This article is part of a series by DH writer Jonathan Edwards. If you haven’t already, read about wood, fire and earth.) A fiber-optic cable. A vein of quartz. A snow-capped peak. A steel knife edge. Call it Metal or Mineral; it’s the element that connects and conducts, gleams and inspires. And it cuts, freeing the kernel from the chaff. Sharp and hard, clean and clear is Metal. An open channel between heaven and earth.

Studying Chinese medicine within a busy life : an experiment
One of the biggest difficulties I have had since graduating is finding time to study. This is not an inherent problem, but one created because of how I schedule around my priorities. My family, the basic work of seeing patients, running a business and my teaching work at NCNM have taken precedence over everything else. Until recently, the “extra” time was devoted to personal cultivation in the physical and emotional sense. At some point, I started to detect a lack of balance, and gave that personal cultivation an even bigger slice. Of course, I am learning in the process of seeing patients, preparing for classes, and i...

The avoidable loneliness of our profession
At some point in your career in Chinese medicine, you’re going to be stopped cold by the sudden realization of how little you actually know. What knowledge will you find yourself lacking? All of it, most likely. Some common themes? Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, diagnostics, patient management, various aspects of business, how to keep balance, how to run a practice when you’ve got so much work to do on yourself – the list goes on. If not knowledge, then skill will be the missing piece. Or maybe a little of each. Or something else. Some nagging sense that all your ducks aren’t in a row, and you’re not qui...

Podcast on hiatus, rollback underway
The podcast is on indefinite hiatus, which is why no episodes for the last three weeks. I’m also going to be implementing some simple changes on the site that will be a bit of a roll back to a previous state. Newsletters, course releases and updates, and other activity will be similarly impacted. I hope to explain all of this, as well as indicate what it means about business and Chinese medicine practice more generally, in an upcoming post! Thanks for your patience.

Deepest Health Podcast 31 – Chinese medicine in veterinary practice : Interview with Dr. Neal Sivula, DVM, PhD
Today on the podcast, I have the pleasure of introducing my very favorite veterinarian to the Chinese Medicine Central community. Neal Sivula is a long-time reader and student of Chinese Medicine Central, but that’s the least of his many distinctions! He founded and practices at Dancing Paws Animal Wellness Center in Richfield, OH, and has a number of distinctions you can read all about over at his about me site. He has helped the classical Chinese medicine message reach a wider audience by helping me be accepted to speak at the Midwest Veterinary Conference two years in a row and I’ll be joining him here in P...

Deepest Health Podcast 30 – Towards a systematic view of Deepest Business Health
Today on the podcast, I explore how I approach helping Chinese medicine students and practitioners have true health in their businesses. This is an important topic for me, and one that is becoming increasingly a part of my daily focus. In the podcast, I talk about five basic elements of every healthy business, what those elements involve, and how we might want to start thinking about them. I emphasize the complexity and fun of business, and open the door for your thoughts and questions. As has been my habit, I also dig into a few little features. I mention the diversity of acupuncture related projects on Indiegogo, some of...

Deepest Health Podcast 29 – Structural integration and acupuncture : An interview with Cintain 昆游龍
The main event for this week’s podcast is digging into the similarities and differences between the theories underlying acupuncture and structural integration. We explore what this might mean for Chinese medicine practitioners, how we classically informed practitioners can or should integrate Western anatomical understanding, and so much more. Is the jingmai system the same as the fascial system described in work like Anatomy Trains? Also in this podcast, a new scholarship fund and more about social media and why Chinese medicine practitioners should pay attention to it. I’m still very interested in hearing you...

Making a living doing what we love : Chinese medicine and business
I teach the business curriculum at NCNM to all the Chinese medicine students. I’m currently preparing to revise my previous curriculum in preparation for the next class this summer. At the same time, I am fielding a *lot* of personal questions from people in all phases of their careers about how to do various things in business. I’m getting something like a dozen questions a day via Twitter, Facebook, email and face-to-face interactions. That’s quite an increase in interest! All these questions, as well as those that naturally come up as I seek to take my own businesses to the next level, have me thinking...

Deepest Health Chinese Medicine Podcast 28 – Why should you care about acupuncture professional associations like the AAAOM?
Chinese Medicine Central Podcast 28 is chiefly taken up by my conversation spurred by this Acupuncture Today article concerning the disorganization and recent organizational dysfunction of the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM). In that section, I believe I make a fairly compelling case for why you SHOULD care about national professional organizations, why we should think of ourselves as a profession at all, and a couple of quick ways you can (and should) get involved on the state or national level. At some point in recording this, I realized that I probably made a fairly good case for my bei...

Comprehensive review of the digital versions of Peter Deadman’s manual of acupuncture
It’s no surprise to anyone who reads Chinese Medicine Central regularly that I’m more of an herbs guy than an acupuncture guy. I deeply respect the modality, however, and do seek to extend my understanding of it with each treatment I give. My time devoted to study of acupuncture is minuscule compared to the time I give to studying herbs. Despite this (or perhaps because of it?) Peter Deadman’s Manual of Acupuncture is one of my most commonly referenced texts on any given day. He made the basic information (location, names, indications) so simple to reference, while also giving plenty of deeper cuts into h...

Receiving the wild heart of medicine : Earth
This is the third in a series of posts engaging with the five elemental phases in a visceral, symbolic way. You can find the post on the wood phase element by clicking here, and the post on the fire element by clicking here. With each of these posts, I catch myself wanting to start by saying how special the current element is, how different from the others! It’s true, each one is incredibly distinct, a separate universe. What does water know of fire, or fire of water? Yes, each is special–just as special as everybody else. Each a perfect child in the eyes of all-embracing mother earth. Earth is simple–so glor...

In this episode of the Chinese Medicine Central podcast, I’ve decided to revisit the topic of one of the most popular posts on the site over the last 7 years. In that article, I discuss how a person who chooses to follow a vegan diet can do so in line with basic Chinese medicine philosophy. It was written some time ago, during which time I was a devoted vegan (and had been for many years). I figured it was time for an update. There was a little bit of trouble with the audio in this podcast, which I tried to clear up. But, if you hear any distortions or odd pitch changes, know that I am aware of the problem and will b...
