Speaker: Efrem Korngold
When: A lecture given at the #7 ICCM Congress, 2016
Field: Chinese Medicine - Paediatrics, Philosophy, Practice.
The Yin/Yang-Five Phase paradigm is, at its core, a description of human development from the embryonic stage to adulthood. Within this paradigm, the San Jiao (Triple Burner) emerges as the central mechanism that organizes and guides growth and development. Using this model helps us understand the trajectory of both healthy development and how distorted patterns manifest as illness in childhood. Illustrative case examples will demonstrate a practical, systematic methodology for evaluating a child and formulating an effective treatment strategy.
