As many people reading these blog posts are not practitioners of Chinese medicine and aren’t familiar with the concepts thereof, I thought I’d post a series of case studies to give more of a flavor of the medicine and how I approach diagnosis and treatment.

Many of the case studies I have written, however, are from when I was an intern in medical school, and thus, was just prior to my introduction to Dr. Leon Hammer and Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis. Nevertheless, many of the concepts I explain are relevant to the work I do today and represents my path within this medicine. I will try to also prepare a few recent cases to demonstrate the depth of the information one can access with pulse diagnosis and Chinese medicine, and how that information can profoundly impact treatment.

As always, I welcome comments (knowing that many of these cases are from the infancy of my career and with a less sophisticated understanding of Chinese medicine).
