Reading The Body: Traditional Western Herbal Medicine Diagnosis
with Margi Flint, September 13-14, 2014
Learn to read the face, nails, tongue and body to understand indications of lines, blemishes, marks and colours. Understanding the cues of the organ/body correspondences is a precious gift (and a curse). Indications of hot, cold, damp dry and wind conditions can easily be read once you train your eyes to see. Margi Flint shares the knowledge learned from her teachers and clients over the past three decades.
– Facial signs: lines and markings of the tongue, ears, eyes, mouth and nose and their organ/body correspondences.
– Nail signs.
– Significance of tissue color in diagnosis.
– Signs of hot, cold, damp and dry conditions.
– Elimination analysis by stool and urine appearance.
– Discussion of herbs for organ systems.
– Use of pulse analysis when selecting remedies.
The weekend will be spent partly in lecture and partly in looking at the face, tongue and nails of participants as well as pulse-testing for confirmation of herbs. Each day concludes with a plant meditation.
