Lessons from the Nei Jing: the roots of Flavour and Nature.

10:15-11:15am, Saturday 11th June

The worldview presented in the Huang Di Nei Jing is the foundation upon which Chinese Medicine is built. In this presentation, Conny will discuss how the Nei Jing introduces us to the powerful perspective of Flavour and Nature, and what this means for our understanding of the herbs that we use for our patients. Using clinical case examples, she will show how using Flavour and Nature translates into effective treatments, allowing participants to start incorporating this perspective into their own practice.
