do a quick review and that will be easiest done by looking here and i suggest you kind of use this to do your review so here is our let's see yeah we have so you can just look at this this is our you know this list is just a list of the herbs that we're covering in the top 50. so for reviewing let's just kind of go through it and say what what do we know about these ones we've covered so far
00:41
and we could even go a little further since you're technically prepared up to 15 today so if we look at this list and we're just reviewing just trying to see what we can say about them what we know about them so we say wager cinnamon twig activates the young and warms the channels you can see it for wind cold and b syndrome you can see it herb drug interaction with diuretics it works in the middle burner it works
01:13
to help the menses it warms up the middle transforms fluid [Music] rogue way is in warm the interior wagers and awkward warm release the exterior rogue way warms the kidney young helps return the young to the main men helps to um [Music] helps chi and blood tonics to work better also can treat bee syndrome these types of things the dose is usually smaller and when
01:47
they're used for exterior they're generally short cooked xiaoyu and baishau are a partner with gwadar and rogue way they partner together regularly they're the first pair of herbs the first family of herbs by xiao is focused more on nourishing liver blood and yin and astringen with its sour flavor chao is more focused on cooling the blood and moving the blood clearing heat in the blood and moving it
02:17
um it's a guiding herb xiaoyou is a guiding over the taiyin layer and we see it softening the liver it's a great herb with gansal here for um muscle cramping and spasming okay so [Music] uh the next one on your list should be the gingers here at list gonzales the next one so we can just stay consistent with your list and go to chunjung next one for each burner pao jung in the
02:53
lower burner warms it up but mostly stops bleeding ganjon mostly in the middle burner it's in the category warm the interior same as rogue way it warms the middle burner spleen young and helps food set to be hot it pairs with futsa and helps those two herbs to warm and strengthen young for young collapse it also like shangjung helps warm the lung and transform cough and phlegm that's in the chest and um
03:26
being produced by the spleen shenzhen is akron releases the exterior like wager does it helps with nausea and vomiting warms up the middle burner and guns out are part of the magic three so we see them in lots and lots of formulas they work to harmonize the medicinals to detoxify the medicinals they combine together thotsau has three major things it is in tonify the chi category so it tonifies chi
04:04
specifically spleen chi it tonifies blood it's red in color which it has in common with wager there is an affinity to the blood there for those and churchill which is red it has an affinity to the blood so we'll just keep track of little details um dots sal also has the ability to calm the shed okay too much of it will definitely stagnate the spleen it's like a little bit of sweet helps the spleen too much
04:37
of it stagnates it right so we know this all right so that's a review of our uh oh and gun sal is a clear heat toxin herb but it's in the category tonified chi so it is a cheat tonic it's specific to the middle burner it enters all 12 channels though it prefers the spleen stomach and the taiyin and the heart when we bake it with honey it becomes warm instead of neutral and more focuses on the heart and harmonizing medicinals in the middle burner jurgen sal that's
05:08
called okay so these first five herbs guajir xiaoyou gonzal is the form of the guajirtang that's our first formula that we will cover and that puts us at futsa which is the king of the 100 herbs in the same category as ganjiang and rogue way warm the interior it is fundamental herb for restoring devastated young and young collapse restores ming men fire and
05:43
returns the energy back into a state of storage futsa is absolutely deadly toxic so it must be prepared right grown right it should have d dal and powder morning flags all around it we'll spend a lot of time reading about that there is an essaying method where you can actually the world health organization has created a method to be able to make sure you're using food so that it is not toxic so it's we'll look into that more when we get to the category warm the interior
06:18
so that puts us at fooling which is where we're going to start today obviously you're all the way up here to wrench and dongshan in your own starting this because we should be doing 11 through 15. remember you're ahead of the game and we're catching up so fooling is an interesting herb it's in the category drain damp and we have fooling fushen surefully and technically like with shangjung we have shenzhen p the skin of the ginger which is a diuretic
06:50
fooling also has a skin on the outside which is extremely diuretic so fooling pee is also a skin and also diuretic we'll see a formula much later on called whoopee son three five p powder which is for making you pee it's a diuretic formula the skin of five different herbs all right so fooling has
07:22
these four different parts so we want to kind of look at fooling as an herb and then understand the four different parts pulling is mostly about draining dampness that's the category it's in and tonifying spleen chi it also can calm the shen so now we have two herbs that are specific to calming shen thotsal and fooling their fushen more focuses on calming shen and less on the other function the arab cure fooling which is like chur
07:54
shall chur shall chur fuling means the red fooding and that is more able to clear heat so it's good to kind of have a sense of the terms because once you see the terms threads start to form you start seeing the same thing happening now part of the problem with the threads is that all not all the threads are the same the word shen here in means shen like spirit that's the actual
08:24
character that's there however the shen that's here as in ren shan and duncan is a different character although it still says shen so this is what is an asset on one end is a place to get bogged down on another but we'll we'll try to remind you of those as we come okay mainly focusing on clearing heat and draining damp so you've got one that's all of them drain damp but fuling tonifies the spleen fluchen calms the
08:56
shen more and chirping clears heat more fooling pee is focused mostly just only on edema chaihu you've already prepared this we're we're just talking about what we would want to know for the test at this point right this is just a down and dirty basics for the test chaihu i'm sorry could you just do a recap of the overview of the fulang we're going to go back to fooling in a minute right now we're just pretending as if we already know them you've already studied them so i'm
09:28
talking about you just this is good don't try to worry about taking notes unless it's just maybe highlight a few things on your what i'm saying in that sense right because i'm more like you've already studied these herbs so what did you focus on right and and we're going to go back to fooling in a minute this is not our own we're going to spend a lot of time talking about fooling here in a second we're just kind of doing a preview here but fooling tonifies the spleen sheet and it drains dampness it's in the category drain damp
10:00
so it's primarily a damp draining herb it's bland so it's a diuretic remember the bland flavor what the blend flavor does right from our intro class so we have three different ones fooling they all drain dampness but the fuling which is more spleen tonic fluchen is more shen calming cheerfully is more heat clearing chaihu is the imperial herb for xiaoyong syndrome and the number one herb for moving liver chi it's extremely dose
10:34
dependent okay bansha is the number one herb for phlegm in the stomach and for descending stomach chi transforming damp and phlegm in the stomach the three huang's what we collectively call the san huang the three yellows are each antibiotic level herbs one for each burner huang bai is in the lower burner clearing heat and drying
11:09
damp that's the category they're in they're all in clear heat dry damp huang chin is in the lung and gallbladder and the xiao yong likes to pair with cha'hu puangbai likes to pair with seongju which is just below it there as well as with germo these are herbs that we see coming up down our list and huang lian is heart and stomach all clearing heat and drying damp at an
11:42
antibiotic level very bitter very cold if you've ever tasted these herbs you will remember that you've tasted them they are nasty tasting like if you put cipro in your mouth and sucked on that like a lozenger it would taste horrible okay so um fung chi is a tonified chi category herb tonifies yin chi spleen and lung lifts the chi to the surface promotes sweating treats edema
12:12
fantastic herb there regulates the yin and wei chi baiju and sangju are two sides of a coin but they're in two different categories these are tonifying splenchy and treating dampness dungue is our number one herb for nourishing and moving the liver blood shandy and is the queen of the 100 herbs absolute stillness whereas futsa is absolute young movement
12:47
shooti is absolute stillness somewhat like a steroid calming everything down shangdi is the fresh version of that which clears heat and cools the blood and also nourishes in when you take it and steam it it becomes shudy long and that is nourishing blood essence marrow and yin and then you have ren shen and dongshen the beginning of all the shenz renshen ginseng the number one chi tonic the imperial herb for tonifying the qi
13:18
and generating body fluids calming the shen thoughts to go on for their dongshen is the poor person's alternate like ginseng but just less expensive and less life-saving for qi collapse food says for yang collapse ren chin is for qi collapse okay so we're going to go back through all those but that's kind of if if at this stage you've reviewed all these herbs if any of the things i just said sounds
13:51
like what you were reviewing you're doing great that's what you need to remember as a bare minimum what i just said is what i'm probably going to remember when i'm making test questions so those are going to be around tests the number one herb to tonify chi for qi collapse to generate body fluids and also calm the shen entering into the heart in all 12 channels is the herb wrenching the best herb to tonify lung and spleen she and generate body fluids with a gentle
14:22
easy cost-effective method dangchen the best herb to clear heat and cool the blood and nourish yin at the ying and shui levels shangdiwon what's the best herb to nourish essence blood marrow and yin shu di huang shudivong his absolute stillness nourishes blood essence marine yin because of that we should be very cautious about using it when there is what present dampness or spleen deficiency because it will
14:54
easy coagulate the digestive system it's like eating you know it's like covering yourself in honey it's sticky if you take shootie fong in your hand and squeeze it together like this your fingers will literally be stuck together because it's sticky so it's that way in your digestive system it easily clogs it up the number one herb to move and nourish the blood regulate the menses and harmonize all blood dung way the best herb to tonify spleen she dry
15:26
damp baiju the best herb to dry and transform dampness and help strengthen the spleen qi while also helping improve night vision and promote sweating to release the exterior tangju so questions like this okay so we're working our way back now through these which is the best herb to clear heat and dry damp from the lower burner entering the kidney and the water pair the best herb to combine with tongju to dry damp in the transform heat in the
15:58
lower burner flowing by which is the herb that likes to combine the most with chihu to clear xiaoyong layer heat fong chin questions like this so we're just formulating questions i can make up questions all day here about it okay so but all of the questions are still built around these simple little things that i've mentioned about the herb already we haven't even looked at these herbs yet but i can already formulate every question that you need based on just these simple things that we talked about
16:31
what category are they in what's its main function where does it do its main work if you can get that down you're gonna be great okay what category it's in what's its main function and indications where is it working and doing the most who's it like to combine with outside of that there's just little things like what's its herb drug interaction what's its you know what temperature is it you know flavor is often useful to know what channels it enters is often useful
17:03
to know but you can usually figure things out even if you can't remember that again one of the things you're going to do on a regular basis is use what you do know to figure out what you don't know that is never going to change because let me tell you that when you get to clinic there's going to be a lot more that you don't know than what you do know so you got to use what you do already know to figure things out
17:33
it's like being a detective or sherlock holmes right or nancy drew so you can figure that out right by what you do know use the information around you to figure it out all right so let's stop this because this just will easily stress everybody out let's go back to our regular list here or or let's see if there's any questions in the moment no we're okay all right just re remember
18:16
that i keep saying it over and over again it'll soon be true okay you're okay it's gonna be all right all right so sharing a different paper but that one that we were just sharing is a good one to open up daily and go down the list what do i know what do i remember where am i having trouble remembering something then i'll focus on that one the ones that i know and remember things i'll just keep doing that keep going keep remembering that add more to it as
18:48
i can keep adding more to it keep going keep reviewing every day review today review tomorrow after tomorrow review the next day this kind of thing okay you're doing great just keep it up if you take a few days off review more when you come back trying to take too many days off okay but you got to take some off you got to have a life okay all right number seven is the poria family of verbs
19:23
this is a key herbal family with extreme versatility and a lot of functions okay there's a lot of functionality of this herb it's a major player we see it used all the time in lots of different formats okay this herb is bland so we want to refresh our memory about bland what does the bland flavor do according to our learning from the summer or just focus its energy what burner
19:59
or burners is it the middle burner sophia was just about to call on you that was good timing it it does focus on the middle burner and on the lower burner technically right bland is a flavor of the middle burner bland is a flavor that helps the digestive system think about it when you're not feeling well and you're sick what do you gravitate towards eating you eat bland foods you know you don't go out and eat the richest meal in the world when you're not feeling that great
20:35
right you eat something bland something simple and that bland food is both easy to digest and functional to the middle burner now what else does the blend flavor do does it drain down it does drain damp it causes water and percolates water was that you deborah that said that no no that was me jonay hi oh hi some sometimes
21:13
i can't see everyone's face and it doesn't always tell me who's speaking thank you janae um there we go now i can see janae okay um land the one that like also made all the other herbs like play well together or something it was like or maybe i'm remembering that wrong um plan does help the herbs work together but mainly just for dealing with water okay
21:48
just dealing with water blend is a key herb for helping the body get rid of water um and it and then it's simple and easy to digest so therefore it's like a in a tonic to the digestive system in a way poria is both bland and neutral so it doesn't have a temperature designation it's not hot or cold so it it works under heat conditions it works under cold conditions it works under damp conditions it can it can do
22:20
a tremendous amount of things it's extremely versatile okay so here we see um it says poop pourier fooling powerful to transform spleen stomach stuck fluids into useful body fluids or eliminate them so those are the two things that we're doing we have body fluids gin and yellow we have hearing fluids and young fluids and those fluids are
22:51
stored in the body anyone remember the organ in charge of that who's the organ in charge of storage of body fluids deborah you look like you want to say it is it the spleen well the spleen is in charge of transforming the body fluids right and and it does that through the triple burner which in charge of moving the body fluids around the body keeping the water pathways open so when we talk about body fluids there's there's nary an organ that isn't
23:32
involved in that but um especially depending on when you weigh how large your body fluid terminology is because ultimately body fluids are under the rubric of yin capital y yin and so it can be anywhere from capital y yin to just down to gin or ya or both or blood or any number of things in between right but here we're specific talking about
24:02
body fluids so the spleen is in charge of transforming them the lung is in charge of helping distribute them move through the triple warmer which keeps the pathways open but storage of the body fluids is should be ultimately governed by the organ in charge of storage that sets the mandate for that which that organ would be what kidney the kidney which means the organ in charge of dealing with yin
24:37
would have to be a young organ so that would make it the bladder the bladder in the neging says the bladder the official in charge of regulating the ability of the stream to flow jinya the body fluids are stored because of the bladder and it says chihuahua bienshu which allows chi transformation to come forth so the importance of body fluids cannot be
25:14
underestimated you cannot have chi without it let's use an example that you can all relate to if cramer came flying through deborah's door and ran over to the electrical socket and stuck their finger in it his hair would stand up even more than it normally does however if cramer came through and jumped in a bucket of water and stuck their finger in electrical socket
25:46
all bets are off right so the water is a catalyst to flow especially mineralized water which means mineralized water or earthalized water because if you stripped all the minerals out of that water you could stand in that water and touch the electricity wouldn't be as problematic right don't try this at home um so this ability of the body fluids to be transformed that's a spleen stomach
26:21
thing right powerful to transform spleen stomach stuck fluids into useful body fluids or get rid of them so the bladder and the small intestine your tai young the small intestine is separating turbid from clear clear is useful turbid needs eliminated except for yin turbid fluids which are thick and would be right you have gin fluids and yeah fluids one of those fluids is you know like snot and eye discharge and
26:51
and lubricant so your eyes are fluid and lubricant in your mouth saliva things like this and the other is thicker fluids that are in your joints synovial fluid things like this you need those those are all imperative right so the body has to create those so if we don't aren't if we're not making useful ones then we should be eliminating fluid because fluid shouldn't just be sitting around fluid that's sitting around causes problems right
27:22
so percolating water and removing phlegm that's another key piece here percolating water that's a key thing so if we're going to percolate water with fooling what's the herb we're going to choose for that elise what do you think i was saying fooling p because that one you said for edema but i'm not sure that's good and that you could use that for sure but we would use this with boolean we can choose any one of the foolings but we're gonna what herb would we use
28:07
with fooling to percolate water don't worry if we can't get it we're just practicing our thinking if you don't have the answer there's not a problem we're just trying to help you learn how to turn the gears everybody's doing great okay so don't worry whether you can answer it or not it's better to just try okay molly what do you think just make a guess it's all right it's going to be okay make a leap of faith what does percolate mean think about the
28:41
things percolating water who would i choose if i wanted to percolate some water out of the list of herbs we've already covered who am i going to gravitate towards um i'm sorry can i ask a quick question about the percolating water is that is that you're just saying like you're taking it down and out or yeah i'm just confused about what percolating the water means well percolate for instance like in the old days coffee machines you put
29:18
the grinds in the coffee right the coffee grinds in a little pot machine and then you kind of set it on the stove and you put water underneath it and you apply heat to that and that water pushes up through and it forces water to come out this little tube and that forms coffee right so that would be a percolator so then if you think about that idea where percolating water means
29:50
causing the water to transform itself so would it be grazier it would indeed be quager very good because quager and fooling are a pair of verbs that are working together and so fooling is the bland neutral thing that's like dealing with the water and now we need some kind of heat some kind of yang some kind of fire to put with it to make it happen and if we go back to wager and we look at wager the number three and number four things there are
30:21
dealing with time fluids phlegm fluids thin fluids right transforming thin fluids because if the water sits around think about this for yourself here spleen stomach stuck fluids if fluid is stuck in the spleen stomach first thing the person might experience is nausea second thing the person might experience would be a heaviness in the stomach they feel heavy third thing they might have water splash if we palpate their abdomen
30:54
but as the water sits in the spleen stomach the spleen stomach's like i don't want this water in here you're supposed to be going somewhere and in fact where is the water supposed to be going where does the spleen stomach send water initially to the lung to the lung to the its tie tie-in partnered system and the lung takes that water and then disperses it over the whole body like rain right so that everybody gets some so that it's not in any one place
31:29
however between the spleen stomach and the lung there sits the thing called the diaphragm and the diaphragm means that you've got to move that water it's got to be moved through and past that that's where your triple warmer comes in that's where your xiaoyong comes in that's where the water can easily get stuck there and if it gets stuck there that person's going to not have a clear flow up and down which means they're going to experience things like dizziness and vertigo and
32:01
palpitations and anxiety it's going to be as if the water is sitting here stuck and it's starting to croach in on the heart and what is the fire going to do as soon as it starts feeling water coming towards it racing towards it it's going to get anxious hey i'm just a candle flame in a room here filling with water warning warning warning morning palpitations anxiety dizziness vertigo get me out of here right so we're just looking at things
32:31
but like everything you need to know is right here in front of you and your handouts in the book you just have to think about it this course this this let me let's pause here for a second okay everybody i'm gonna tell you a secret it seems like everything in chinese medicine school is built around you memorizing details how many of you would agree so far that that's what it seems like i think all of you
33:01
i will tell you that it has nothing to do with that all of that has to do with passing and taking tests which is a valuable thing in and of itself but it has nothing to do with chinese medicine chinese medicine is simply about learning how to think learning how to figure things out think take the theory in like a sponge and absorb it and kind of think about it and spin it around and get every angle like a
33:35
diamond how many facets does a diamond have how many angles how many colors how many views how many things can you see there if you look standing on a mountain looking at a landscape how many things can you possibly see so chinese medicine is like that it's a meta view it's not about memorizing things it just seems like that because that's all we spend our time doing but it's really about learning how to think so rather there's some things we need to memorize but mostly we just need to think what does when i put little words
34:09
on here i didn't write any of this arbitrarily it wasn't like i sat down and just was like i've got to figure something out i wrote these little blurbs with a specific reasoning in mind with clues so that if you're reading it right you're finding them and you may not you may go through it right now and see it one way and six weeks from now go through it and see it another way and a month from then you could see it some different way and six months from them and two years from now etc right so there's an infinite number of learning
34:40
because it depends on where we are it's a spiral staircase we're on you can still see above and below you all right molly you have a question yeah could you also use gonjiang with fooling for um like removing that fluid you could use ganjiang with fooling absolutely they're often combined together however ganjiang wouldn't be moving it right because ganjiang is stationary to
35:13
the middle burner whereas wager is activating the young and moving the young right so if we want to move it then we probably have to have a moving if we just want to look at it then we can just kind of use something that's stationary right so it and the ganjiang is more transformative like let's just think about it you know let's put it in the real world um right here on my desk i have my tea if i took my tea and i just spilled it on the desk which i did last year i spilled it
35:44
on my keyboard it still doesn't work it's a pain in the butt um that's my computer crashes all the time because of that little incident um but if i took this t and spilled it all over the desk you know what would happen how would i clean it up so to speak would i wait until the sun comes through the window and dries it up that's gangian would i open the window and let the breeze come through
36:14
would i let it pour off onto the floor that sounds like fooling just let it drain downwards and it's gone from here out of sight out of mine now it's just on my floor what's it going to do down there water seeks the low ground so how are we going to deal with it right so we've got herbs that are all interacting and depending on where you are because everything in chinese medicine isn't about memorizing things it's about the context in which you find yourself
36:47
it's a contextual thing so if your water is stuck in your head you have to have a different context for treatment than if the water stuck in your toes and anywhere in between so it has to be contextualized just like chinese medicine what does the word shen mean well first of all it depends on which shen you're talking about second of all it depends on the context that you're using it in if you could understand chinese if i could just
37:21
take a little chip and put it in your brain and all of a sudden you're like boom i'm fluent in chinese you walk up on some people talking you will not know what they are talking about until you and you can hear the words and you can start to get the idea of what they're talking about but until you understand the context they're using the words in they could be talking about lots of different things because it's a contextual language the medicine itself is contextual nature is contextual
37:51
and it's time and space medicine so it depends on where in time and in what space you're in now feel free to go back to memorizing things for the test but keep in mind what i just said because that's the more important piece the memorizing is only a means to an end the end is a non-ending always beginning which is context using what you do know to figure out
38:23
what you don't know learning how to think what i'm really interested in teaching you how to be thinkers how to see what's right in front of you even when it doesn't seem like it's right in front of you or it's so obvious that you look right past it most things in life we just miss because we're not paying attention to detail we assume we see right speaking of which it this little paragraph we should continue on because otherwise we're
38:55
going to get farther behind but it shores up the earth element by dealing with water and generates metal what color is fooling it's white right molly you're going to say white i think right so poria is white so it has an affinity to the metal it's why are the spleen points where does the spleen meridian start on your body this isn't unrelated to acupuncture everything is interrelated nothing is
39:28
arbitrary what's the first point on the spleen meridian toe the toe that's where it begins what's the name of the first point on the spleen meridian now see this is problematic because you all maybe only know it as spleen one which means nothing let me assure you spleen one means absolutely nothing it means zero it means less than one it means nothing spleen one is is just a way of designating it and separating it
40:00
from spleen two that's it it has no meaning spleen one is called yin by the yin like yin yang and by white the in whiteness the next point is called da du the great authority the third point is called tie by the supreme whiteness why does the spleen channel begin with the first number one point and the number three point numbers
40:31
aren't arbitrary so even if we use the numbers one and three are young numbers two and four are yin numbers so what's going on in the spring meridian okay learning how to think okay what does that mean dealing with water and generating metal from the earth element that's a triad earth water metal that's a triad in the five element system what flavors are going to work in that what can i do in that by applying
41:05
flavors to earth water metal how many options do i have how many scenarios can i find right see this isn't as drawl and boring as it seems memorizing things is dull and boring but necessary we got to have a context to speak with but beyond that it's an infinite magical realm of things to find okay as evidenced here by liu chan jung once remarked that
41:37
regarding porya it represents the material coagulation of the spirit of the old pine tree lu tzuyao once said that this tree that it does not drive out its essence to its leaves but it spirals it down into the opposite direction all the way down into the heels very much comparable to the energetic breath of a taoist master so if one only looks at this herb as a damp disinhibiting substance a diuretic
42:09
it is a pity the pine tree does not become exhausted or shed its needles during the icy winter months is that not proof that it receives the energetic quality of true young the chi of the pine tree enters the earth where after a long time it forms poria the material quality of floridia therefore is formed by yin shi and conceived by yan the dallas hermit and herbalist tau hong jing pointed out that toriya never rots or is devoured by parasites if placed
42:41
under the earth for 30 years it will not even change its color is not all this evidence of the marvelous nature of poria all right so here we are with the arab fooling second tone second tone poria or what's often called holland right here you see this end part it could be either of those pory cocos in the polypore family it's a type of fungus that grows at the root of trees see it's neutral sweet and bland so those are definitely the earth flavors
43:13
okay sweet is in our five bland is an additional flavor we were just talking about that it's from the shenan ben saljin so we would definitely benefit ourselves by going there and taking a look at it and look where it enters these are some heavy hitters four of the five zhang organs so it enters the tai yin spleen and lung it's white in and of itself and it's bland and sweet so there it has a lot of work in the taiyan to cover
43:46
it enters the upper source of water in the lower source of water lung and kidney salt water and fresh water so it can work in the fresh water realm and the salt water realm and then it enters the xiao yin heart and kidney tonifies the spleen drains damp and harmful fluids by promoting urination calms the shen which of the falling herbs is neutral sweet and bland enters tien and xiaoyin and is able to tonify spleen drain damp
44:22
and calm the shen question like this carla you have a question i don't think i've heard the salt water and the fresh water before could you discuss that a little bit more uh yep sure in nature we have fresh water in salt water as above so below as out there in nature so in your body so you must have a fresh water system and a salt water system in your body salt water system would be
44:56
just like in nature the ocean and the fresh water system in nature would be like the sky mountains rivers water flowing downwards out to the sea water at the sea flows upwards is transformed up that's what's called the water cycle right so if you want to understand this nature google what is the water cycle and then you can kind of get a sense of that in nature and then once you have a sense of that in nature you take that and apply it to the body
45:31
the earth element is actually sitting as a juxtaposition on both of those for instance if you go it's hard to find these days because we've eradicated most of the wetlands in the world but wetlands are extremely important facets of nature [Music] because they purify and clear water so freshwater wetlands are mitigating water in areas like their
46:03
active storage areas but at the coast you see places where wetlands mix fresh water and salt water together right and so you can see that kind of water transforming from one to the other so the kidney which is water storage oceans store all the water right of the world so the kidney is a salt water and the flavor of the kidney is salty right and the lung metal element is like
46:35
a mountain if you want to look at a symbol of the metal element just go outside and stare at mount hood that's the most obvious symbol of metal earth piled upon earth that's what the character metal is in chinese we're going to delve into all of this in our pre-han text here soon so this will that class going along with this is going to add a lot of understanding um but that's a basic primer on it is that helpful yeah i'll definitely ask more questions and pre-hand about it
47:08
yeah yeah we're well we're going to talk about it quite a bit so you see here under its action indication edema because it's a diuretic and it's in the category drain dampness you see it category herbs that drain dampness so it has to be primarily focused on draining damp that's what it's done that's the category it's in you see poor appetite loose stool diarrhea fatigue that's all signs of spleen sheet efficiency because that's another thing it does tonify the spleen so it not only drains damp which
47:41
vicariously tonifies the spleen if the spleen is all wet you know if you have a a sponge on your sink and you wipe up water with it and it's full of water and you need to wipe up more water how are you going to do that you have to wring out the sponge which would be draining damp now the sponge is more absorbed that's you've tonified the sponge by draining it
48:17
right so not all tonification is tonification we can tonify without tonifying right so we're just keeping this in mind then you see this other part the question yeah i did um i was just curious because so obviously fooling is like a is a type of like diuretic but grazier like its potential like interaction is with diuretics is it that it's only like western medical diuretics that we would worry about or like these two work
48:48
in balance like it's like the right amount of um well what is what is let's go back to what herb drug interaction means right or glades reserve drug interaction with diuretics what does that mean um i guess i would be but i don't understand them i guess maybe that's my issue so okay no problem um that's we'll rectify that so what that means wager has a potential herb drug interaction with diuretics is to mean
49:22
glader acts in a way that metabolizes or speeds up the promotion of water so if you are concurrently taking a diuretic and then you take wager you may diuretic more create more diuretic nature right so so that wager's already doing that so then pairing it with fooling would be a perfect combination however if you paired wager and fooling
49:52
together and the person was taking lasix or some other type of diuretic now they have a potential hypokalemia or some type of electrolyte loss or type of too much fluid being removed do you see what i mean so sometimes yes so sometimes the arab drug interaction means choose between the two the western drug or the er because they're achieving the same results right
50:24
so that's a good question um you see the number three here heart shen insomnia palpitations things like this now it says disturbance of the heart shen what's the question you want to ask yourself here let's prac practice learning how to think because everybody i want you to understand something you're there's two things that are happening here simultaneously right i'm telling you what to memorize for the test and i'm trying to teach you how to
50:56
be an herbalist all right right those two things right we've talked about that a while back but we just had this conversation about it seems like this is really about memorizing but it's about learning how to think so technically what's it about it's about both both of those things so while you're memorizing you should be learning how to think they're not separate from each other so what are you memorizing here i'm memorizing that it's for edema i'm
51:27
memorizing that it's for spleen sheet efficiency i'm memorizing that it's for insomnia and palpitations i can memorize little details but details are easily forgotten whereas the question that you want to ask yourself here i ask you it says insomnia and palpitations due to heart disturbance okay if you're learning how to think what's the question you want to ask yourself there i would start by asking what is disturbing the shin and
52:02
then you can go from there very good what's this disturbing the shen or is it phlegm exactly because if it's heat disturbing the sin why would you use fully just see what i mean like you wouldn't first of all so insomnia and palpitations due to disturbance of the heart shen but that doesn't mean anything because the heart shen can be disturbed for many reasons and many of them could give you insomnia and palpitations and fooling won't work
52:35
so technically that little line needs to be understood what disturbance of the heart shed here it sounds like the heart shen would be disturbed by rising water for instance i'm like a little candle on a pedestal and the room is flooding that sounds disturbing right that might give me palpitations i can't sleep because i'm worried i'm gonna be drowned out by the water here right so we're just you're just keeping that in mind number because number four
53:10
says strengthens clean and transforms phlegm for palpitations headache and dizziness those two things are going hand in hand and then you see the number five is the same thing what does this mean counterflow chi in the chest anxiety fright palpitations gripping pain in the heart vertigo dizziness vexation right these are all interrelated here and they all actually are related to this and they're all related to this and they're all related to how these things work with each other
53:40
from a theoretical perspective so you either memorize every detail and never forget it or you learn how theory works and then everything else makes sense dr berlitich just please i think that i mean that's essentially why we're here right is so that you can teach us how to problem solve this stuff right we're not gonna know how to do it out of thin air we're not gonna know how to do it on our own right we're listening to you so that you can tell us
54:12
how to think this stuff through how to put it into context and give us the examples that you just gave us otherwise without that we're going off of nothing that's right that's exactly how i learned it from my teacher and that's what we're going to do together right so i'm more pointing it out so that you realize it's not just it's not just memorizing these details memorizing all these details don't get us anywhere right they might get us to where we have this test but how many of you already feel like you're packing stuff in on this end
54:43
and it's falling out on this end over here the stuff you packed in three days ago is kind of falling out over here as you're packing more in right so yeah we're all doing you're all doing great you're wonderful you're all superstars that's not what i'm implying it's more of just remembering this is what we're doing it's a larger process okay fooling is often dosed nine to 15 grams makes perfect sense okay we need to use a little bit more of it now obviously if this herb is draining
55:14
downwards if you have sinking spleen chi or fluid deficiencies you got to be cautious using it right uh and carla you do you have your hand up still because you have a question no okay no worries just making sure and then you can see here number of formulas here especially with our first pair linguae juguntang gradual you see it here with shenling baiji-san fooling and baiju wren shannon fooling you see banchon fooling and arching tong
55:49
so if you look up these formulas you start seeing all these herbs we're talking about are actually combining together pretty regularly in formulas so that's a super helpful to kind of go so that's we put those here special pairs with wager and bansha lots of pears though with fooling fooling combines with a lot of people and then you can see here you're related cheerfully which drains damp and clears heat buchen which more focus on calming the shen and the fooling p which is more
56:20
for skin edema okay so you have options there the abdominal pattern is water splash below the left subcostal region now molly you had mentioned ganjiang and remember ganjiang also has water splash abdomen right so then yes definitely you could use that that's very astute observation right tongue pattern the fulling tongue enlarged with tooth marks and a moist coat pharmacology diuretic anti-neoplastic antibiotic and sedative
56:56
here same herb drug interaction we saw with the glader um because these work synergistically and then in the tanya jing this is water within earth okay and here's your textbook for it you can see here fushan i didn't go ahead and write all this because it's mostly shen calming more to the heart and spleen more into the shen aspect red poria is more clearing and draining heat mobilizing the water and more in the blood aspect okay so those things we'll kind of focus
57:27
on those details there all right so fooling is a fantastic new friend of ours okay i have a great question about cherfuling is that a different mushroom entirely or is it a different portion of the same polypore it's this different portion of the same polypore it's a actually if you go in your text and you look at the nomenclature and preparation section in your textbook and read that which i would encourage you all please to do
57:58
you're supposed to be reading the textbook on this you have eight hours of outside study so reading the shenand-benzel jing reading the textbook on it reading the chen textbook for the pharmacology reading wherever you can looking up all the formulas that's a good idea but just back to your question jordan when you look at that you have many parts so the bifuling the white poria is like a certain part of the mushroom and the fuchsian is the most central part of the mushroom
58:29
right the core part of it and then full truffleing is like this red outer layer of it and then the fooling p is the skin of that on the far outside right so it's it's all the same thing it's just different parts of it okay it's really it's quite a interesting and fantastic um substance it's it's totally amazing all right well it's 1002 and our next nerve is chaihu so that rhymes and we'll have to um we should take a little break because chai
59:05
who is a juggernaut so we want to kind of um take a little break before we tackle that beast all right so we'll we'll come back and talk about cha'hu in just about 10 minutes all right take yourselves a break you're all doing great all right we'll see in a few minutes all right ready to start back everyone's okay any questions anything you need all right let's let's look at the next one fooling is a great new friend and before long chai who will be an old friend chaihu is a
01:09:08
family herb second tone second tone so chai [Music] buplurum in the apacf family chaihu [Music] here you see at the beginning it says indispensable for nearly everything that doesn't involve warming often a need before we go before going to the interior or after we have uh meaning chihuahua is a key herb in the harmonizing
01:09:44
set of herbs and so before we go inside and start digging around it's good to kind of make sure we've got everything settled and once we go inside and dig around it's good to make sure we get things settled so chai often is very useful there one of my teachers used to say just give intervenous chaihu to every american and everything will be better the world will be a better place um it's a key herb for the spring or changes of seasons
01:10:16
um classically used for heat due to cold damage um it's it's in the xiaoyong chapter of the shanghan where this herb rises to prominence it crosses the blood-brain barrier so that's another interesting facet of this herb and it's what's considered to be the imperial herb for xiao yang syndromes so we will definitely want to remember that and it's the number one herb for moving and soothing the liver
01:10:46
qi even though it appears in the category awkward cool to release the exterior so although it is in this accurate cool to release the exterior category that's our first herb from there it really is most known for its ability to clear the xiaoyong layer and it is the number one herb for treating liver cheese stagnation so we see it over and over again for this okay it's
01:11:17
it's it's just it it truly is a very important herb it you don't want to go forth without having chai who in your tool kit um you'll you'll understand and most of you i would assume if any of you have taken chinese herbs i i'm i'm fairly certain you've all taken chayou at some point it's prescribed just like that so um you see its nature is cool its flavors are bitter and acrid
01:11:50
from the shen on benzel jing and we'll want to remember where it goes it enters the wood pear liver and gallbladder it enters the fire pear sauna sun jiao and pericardium so triple warmer and pericardium and if it enters the wood pear and the fire pear sanja pericardium that means it enters the dry yin liver and pericardium and the xiaoyang gallbladder and triple warmer so this is a pretty unique herb
01:12:22
in where it's going we haven't seen anything going to these places yet okay so chai who is definitely the jumping off point into new and exciting realms in the zhongpu kingdom okay so um or queendom harmonizes the xiaoyong the number one thing that we have to do there okay the number one thing we want to remember so if we have xiaoyong syndrome we have chaihu in mind
01:12:53
if we have cha'you in mind it's possibly because of xiaoyang syndrome now it is in the category you can see here category awkward cool released the exterior so the counterpart to the awkward warm category is the acrid cool category both releasing the exterior but one releasing heat diseases from the exterior and the other releasing cold diseases from the exterior so where wager is the primary herb
01:13:27
for wind cold and the exterior chaihu is more for releasing the exterior heat it's not a major player in that realm um because it's more like wager and that you see here it says releases heat from the muscle layer but it can be used to help clear wind heat but it really is mostly about this it is the herb for the harmonizing the
01:13:57
xiaoyong okay and that that has specific symptoms okay the other thing that chai who does yes please teresa so uh um in theory when we talked about like uh xiaoyong or gallbladder there really wasn't much much said about gallbladder and then in channels and points i mean i think the gallbladder channel is awesome and can do a lot but i was just kind of
01:14:29
curious um in herbs um does uh gallbladder play in i mean does it have more of a significance in herbs because it didn't seem like it had that much of a significance in theory except if you have indecision and you're caught like like the deficiency of gallbladder well we're going to rectify the deficiency of your theory about gallbladder before too long okay we're going to make sure that we
01:15:00
fix that deficiency down the line um that's more of like a can that's being kicked um in a way because much like the gallbladder channel like if you were trying to describe the gallbladder channel to someone you know how would you just describe it you would describe it as as chaotic in a way or as back and forth or as not inside not outside because you know it starts here and then it goes over
01:15:33
here and then it comes here then it goes here then it goes there and it goes here and it goes around here then it goes over there then it goes back here then it goes up here then it goes down there then goes over here and it comes down here and it goes this way then goes that way then it goes this way then that way then this way then that way then it goes down here a little ways then it goes this way then that way this way that way it just does that all the way through so it that that in and of itself is exemplary of what the gallbladder can and does do so it's usually just kind of gets kind
01:16:03
of simplified into that's indecisive now that's a pathological presentation let's practice our thinking and turn it around what is it actually the gallbladder is actually decisive it actually knows where it wants to go and it goes there it's only when it's blocked stagnant confused not functioning properly et cetera that then indecisiveness becomes because it's already plotted a course that is decisively all over the place so
01:16:44
it knows how to walk that pathway and channel you know it meets in the middle of your body at a point that's absolutely fundamental in fact if anyone needled this point in the last two days good good for you good job because this point is a fundamental point for what just occurred and what just occurred in nature deborah's dancing it up what is it deborah the equinox the equinox that's correct and the autumnal equinox
01:17:17
is what just occurred on the full moon equinox so even more important full of yin but there is a point on your body called yin yang equinox balance and that would be what point theresa it's on the gallbladder channel well i would say oh whoever anyone i was thinking the sun and moon one room that is the one you're thinking correctly sun and moon yin and yang sun sun and moon at equal points equal sun
01:17:50
and moon that's what you have at the equinox equals suns and moons so there you have it as above so below as out nature so in your body it's already mapped out before you were even born it was mapped out okay so yes we're going to talk about that more um gallbladder is pivotal first of all where does the gallbladder sit on the clock lindsey [Music]
01:18:30
11 pm 1am yeah right before good and what else keep going you're doing good there's lots of relationships there uh in between triple burner and liver and then it starts over again at long um how about who it's opposite of art on the clock time wise um the gallbladder sits in the winter solstice position the heart sits in the summer solstice position so now you see the equinoxes
01:19:06
are playing themselves out in solstice positioning so the gallbladder is sitting opposite the heart the heart is the empress of the body the queen the ruler the mantra i am one which means the gallbladder is always there to pick up any slack the heart has so it cannot be of little value it is imperative um but we'll spend more time on that later let's go back to releases heat from the muscle layer here um
01:19:38
the next thing you see that that chai who does is it raises the clear chi of the stomach and the gallbladder okay it raises up chi it lifts it up particularly of the gallbladder and the stomach so we'll remember that you see here that it says lifts yanchi the two main young cheese that need to lift are the stomach and the gallbladder [Music] really all the young cheese raised the
01:20:09
young the large intestine is raising the sun above the horizon the stomach is raising the shen into your mouth so you can decipher the five flavors bringing the pulse up right stomach tree to the pulse so there's lots of things going on there the next thing you see and bolded out here is relieves liver cheek and strength chai is the number one herb for liver cheek constraint and it's not even in the chi moving category it just is the
01:20:41
number one herb for that so we'll want to remember that okay and then it's this kind of weird strange conditions malaria representing that here so let's look at its actions indications the first thing is that it treats xiaoyong syndrome and xiaoyong's syndrome in the six stages in the tiguan of the xiao yang chapter meaning the defining line of the chapter what is xiaoyong syndrome the first thing xiaoyong syndrome is is
01:21:12
something wrong in the throat some kind of sensation in the throat now that can vary but it's something in the throat second thing there's a bitter taste in the mouth or some kind of taste in the mouth third thing the vision is blurry and what does that mean that means if for instance um let's see here if deborah turns and looks and tries to read something on the wall over there or
01:21:45
look at something on the wall or read something on the refrigerator there and another other refrigerator the seinfeld refrigerator there you go um yeah so um if you go and turn to read that refrigerator and you look at it and it's not crystal clear right away it's potentially something xiaoyong oriented like it's the picture the character is a picture of a sign that's blowing in the wind right like if i said here read this and i hold it up
01:22:19
and i'm going read that and then i start going like this how are you going to read it it's blurry right so that's kind of what this means a wiry pulse pain in the hyper contract or distention there and then the thing that the thing that usually only one ever remembers is this alternating chills and fever right and let's define what that means what does alternating chills and fever mean in the xiaoyong condition what's happening there
01:22:56
why do you have why do you experience this because the pathogen is going from exterior to interior and that is correct transforming from that's correct what does that mean doing good hot and cold uh what does that mean that it's switching between hot and cold why we're doing good we're just trying to
01:23:37
figure it out we want to know the answers to these things right like you're saying it so then i want to know why do you why do you say that like what what brings you to say that what's the chills represent what's the fever represent why are they alternating back and forth what are the chills jonay what did you say oh i said is it wind uh no it might have been carried in on wind and wind is related to the dray yin system so there's a potential there
01:24:08
that's there might have been carried in on the wind yes but and and it depends on what you we could accept wind as an answer here depending on how you're defining wind what is what do you mean by wind wind as a physiologic substance or wind as a pathological thing if you mean wind as a physiologic substance then i can see where you would say i could say yes i could even potentially say yes to wind as a physio pathologic thing
01:24:38
depending on which thing you're associating the wind with here chills or fever can the wind be associated with the chills or with the fever or both what are the chills what do the chills represent in xiaoyong syndrome does it represent the yen um component like being cold and then what in in order to balance out extreme cold then it flips to heat and then
01:25:14
like the kind of what's doing what's doing the flipping you're you're all doing it this is good i like it that where it's good to talk it's good to have these ideas mute inner consumption of each other yin and yang fluctuation yes what's that mean lindsay that's good um sophie what were you gonna say i guess i'm thinking about um how the xiao xiaoyong is an alternating uh level and so maybe we're alternating between the taiyong and the yangming where you see chills when the taeyong is invaded and
01:25:48
fever like the big fours when you get to the yangming level like the pathogens trying to get deeper in but the body's trying to push it out and so there's this back and forth happening um i like that that's good um one of the things though that we see here is is we're thinking pathologically right so everything that you're saying kind of has to do with pathology so let's think about physiology too or additionally also concurrently so the chills here
01:26:20
will save the suspense because you're all giving great answers but the chills are the pathogen winning the battle the pathogen is winning the pathogen is more prevalent the pathogen is more has a leg up on things the fever is your righteous qi winning and the battle is going back and forth which means there is a state of what that is in existence there which is a key word for
01:26:53
xiaoyong syndrome and what this herb is actually doing it's right here for those of us wondering there's a state of disharmony there right that's why this herb is said to harmonize the because it regulates what's going on there the pathogen dissolves and the righteous chi settles chills and fever go away now again like i said this is the only thing that everybody remembers but right here this is an alternating thing i either have i
01:27:26
all my tastes can be in my mouth or i should have no taste in my mouth so if i'm alternating between a taste and not taste it's still an alternating thing if the sign is going like this and it's blurry that's alternating between readable not readable readable not readable if i have dry throat the throat is a hinge a pivot that my head can turn in all kinds of directions so that it's stuck it's alternating between free movement and not moving
01:27:57
my ears can be plugged because i can either hear or i can't hear they're open or closed my eyes are hinges i can they open and close so everywhere there's a hinge i can have a problem my rib cage my hypochondriac region where i can turn and pivot right so all of this is interrelated here we see it all happening together so this is xiaoyong syndrome everybody remembers alternating chills and fever but the actual tiguan says
01:28:28
any of these are symptoms all of these are symptoms it says but even just one of them can be xiaoyang syndrome so you have to be flexible like a gallbladder right second major thing here liver cheese stagnation if the liver chi is not coursing and draining and that is a foundational aspect of the lung element the metal controlling it properly because the
01:29:00
lung is the movement of chi in the body right that's the motive that governs all chi so if the liver qi starts to stagnate you'll see descending pain hyper counterintercostal you can see headaches you can see irregular menses just just painful menses emotional problems you can see wood overacting earth problems bloating indigestion this ibs type of thing earth disharmony right wood and earth aren't working together again a disharmony pattern
01:29:33
chai who governs third major thing is anytime we see prolapsing prolapsing so organs sinking downwards the stomach the rectum the uterus the bladder whatever hernias things like this where something sticking out or sinking downwards we want to think about what is the wood doing to help the earth because remember the organs are held into place by what specific energy
01:30:09
the spleen yangshi right the spleen keeps the organs in place who's in charge of controlling the earth element and regulating that the wood element so we would see that going on here then you see number four strange diseases malaria parasite acidic diseases or diseases with strange symptoms any time the person's got totally crazy off the wall strange symptoms were at least potentially considering
01:30:41
this and a lot of different gynecological things this herb treats and then again a broad range of ear eye throat diarrhea just so many things that this does now it says your standard dosage is three to nine grams however in the shanghain who is very dose dependent and i you need to remember this so put a little star next to dos de chai who this is the first place where we're really going to kind of
01:31:11
talk about dosage when we look at chihuahuan dosages in the xiaoyong chapter under the formula xiao chayutong which is the major remedy for xiaoyong syndrome here it is listed if you want to know the name okay i highlighted it here for you um xiao chai utang the dose of chaihu and xiao chayutong in the shanghai is 24 grams so well beyond the three to nine range
01:31:44
the dose of chaihu in the formula bujong ichitan which is a prolapse formula a qi deficiency formula is 1 to 3 grams the dose of chihu in a formula for clearing exterior wind heat is three to six grams and the dose of chai who in harmonizing formulas for regulating and moving qi is generally somewhere between six and 12 grams so the dose range is one to three
01:32:17
generally for prolapse problems sinking problems three to six for heat clearing problems 6 to 12 for chi moving problems and 12 to 24 for xiaoyong related problems that's the general way that i look at dosages so although the text listed at three to nine the reality is quite different right everybody's okay with that kind of
01:32:52
um is food poisoning a xiaoyong syndrome um food poisoning is usually a young ming syndrome um but it could be related to a xiaoyong syndrome um that's an interesting question why do you ask i guess i just always like to like find little conditions or ways to think about an herb and i was thinking like oh if someone had food poisoning
01:33:26
like would i think try who yeah you i would think you would probably i wouldn't go try you wouldn't be my first thought i would probably be going more to an herb like gu again or huanglian or something like this because there's food poisoning poisoning means toxicity so you would go to something foodborne that's toxic so you want something that one clears the toxicity of that and something like um
01:33:57
mung beans or something um or blue dough mung bean which is like a kind of an herb that rescues the spleen system from that and like an herb we see coming up here go again which is an herb that kind of rescues the spleen but clears the cell generates fluids usually food poisoning they've got diarrhea and things for um loss of fluid stuff like that so you want protective herbs but also you want things that get rid of the toxicity the
01:34:29
poisoning right um it's not out of the realm that it could be used for that but um it's not wouldn't be my general go-to here i will put a little thing in the chat there for you okay one to three for prolapse like things three to six for clearing when heat six to twelve for moving uh moving the chi 12 to 24 for xiaoyong should say moving qi there okay just so you have a little extra okay now dry fried and vinegar fried are
01:35:03
preparations for this you do see it in the category awkward cool release the exterior okay um special pairing chai who loves to combine with xiao yao for moving and harmonizing wood earth for liver qi problems and it loves to combine with hwang chin for xiaoyong problems so those are pretty specific combinations right the chaihu and xiaoyao are more the number two the cha'hu and hwang chin are more the number one or potentially um number
01:35:36
four and five as well for the chai wong jin or for the xiaoyo really okay obviously chihu is an upward moving herb it's the springtime energy it's energy moving upwards it goes into the brain it crosses the blood brain barrier things like this so if the liver young is already rising upwards it's probably not good to give an herb that takes the liver young and says yeehaw let's go upwards right like that's probably not the best thing to do there okay so
01:36:06
um you have to be cautious with any energy that's rising upwards you do see it as a guiding herb in the xiaoyong we've already talked about chaihu doing that it's the guiding urban xiaoyong we will definitely want to remember that that's a for sure question list all the guiding herbs what's the guiding herb into the shouty end what's the guiding herb into the dragon what's the guiding urban of the young me we've already covered that that's already still testable right we covered that in the intro class
01:36:35
okay i'm up into that's all in your text there we already have those notes okay the liver up into the brain here's your common formulas now xiaoyong signs are alternating signs and a bitter state the person feels bitter about something right so you see here ligao suggested it focuses on blood and yin or in the organs and chi in the channels the chai who body type is the wood body type so back from our diagnosis lab we had a wood body type you have a slide
01:37:07
for that that would be your chihu body type thin slightly yellow complexion strong tight muscles patient really processes through movement they feel bad they go out and move they feel better that's usually a chihu person okay um they especially emotional energy right and especially if they have like cyclical issues things that kind of come and go come and go come and go come and go we want to kind of think about or
01:37:38
this next one right here subjective complaints that don't have objective confirmation we call those people in the west what a hypochondriac right they feel something that's not there notice up here number two distending pain in the hypochondriac they there's something they actually feel if they're not making this up like the west would think they actually have something going on often emotional
01:38:10
right disease either comes from the outside and penetrates inward or it generates inwardly from our poor lifestyle or from emotional things that we're dealing with the way we think and feel so preventing disease from coming in the from the outside adjusting ourselves with a proper lifestyle and being emotionally regulated we can be disease free right the abdomen for the chihu subcostal
01:38:47
tension and hardness right so remember when both mark and kamiko are in the abdomen and they're under the rib cage kind of like this that's always a chaihoo situation that's going on there now it can there's layers to that but initially let's just start by saying if we're palpating in there and there's tension we're probably starting to think about chihu okay wiry pulse is also the key thing here especially in the guan of the guan okay so like and remember
01:39:18
wiry how many of you have a wire in your house that's only this big meaning this long no one wires by nature are long so a wiry pulse usually means through the whole pulse you feel it okay so we'll just kind of keep that in mind see it's immunostimulant antibiotic antiviral anti-parasitic it's a powder protective anti-inflammatory it's a colagog and an anti-hyperlipidemic so those are great it definitely helps the
01:39:49
gallbladder work on a pharmacological level and you see has a potential herb drug interaction with interferon okay so chihuahua very important for our purposes here besides the herb drug interaction pulse and abdomen are good to keep in mind and the classical keynote signs are good to keep in mind guiding are good to know we must know that we should know our special pairs in our category right so what's going on my little three by five card
01:40:21
for xiaoyong as long as i know what xiaoyong syndrome means that's all i need to write number one herb for moving liver cheese stagnation great if i know what that means i don't need to write anything further herb for prolapse when the spleen young is sinking anything that's weird going on and a broad range of other diseases i want to highlight my dose i've got my category ac awkward cool i know it releases the exterior i know it's paired with xiaoyu
01:40:53
and hong shin i know it's a guiding herb in the xiaoyong this card has a little bit more on right this is the this is like a wager level herb it's got many many things it's it's right up there wagers one chihu's two right in our in our grand scheme of of herbs especially for us clinically because when we're trying to learn one of the first things we if we start learning herbs by family we start going patients there in front of me
01:41:24
do they seem like a wager pattern do they seem like a chihuahua pattern do they seem like a bond shop pattern do they seem like a devon pattern do they seem etc so as soon as i see them and they i go yes they seem like a child pattern okay well everything else now i don't have to think about i can just stay on the chair train okay so we're just kind of practicing we're doing good everything's great now we don't have a lot of time but we've got ourselves up to banshah here okay
01:41:55
but let's look at bansha as an introduction the bansha is a whole family of formulas bansha is also a body type this is the earth body type generally okay so you have that in your nose from diagnosis lab and it's the number one herb for phlegm it's in the category transform phlegm which is a massive huge category that we'll be covering extensively okay so the phlegm is phlegm they say is the root of a hundred diseases and rob us of our happiness
01:42:27
so bansha people by nature are kind of happy go lucky they smile a lot they're kind of just round and cuddly and they love to laugh and they're jovial and they see the good side of things right except for when they're all bound up and clogged up with phlegm and then they are robbed of that happiness they feel strange and weird and anything that it says here all that is undigested becomes phlegm certainly that means food but it also
01:42:57
means experience anything that you take in through your eyes your stomach meridian begins at the eyes so everything you're taking in and trying to digest that you don't transform and get clarity from becomes phlegmatic trauma herbs class right it all just becomes phlegmatic goo stuck in there somewhere right crossing many categories and sitting in the center of many formulas is the urban shop it sits at the center
01:43:30
classically it's an herb of the spleen in the heart um stomach and gallbladder like those are where it's going so the earth pair and the heart gallbladder clock opposite pair it's a fundamental spleen gallbladder heart remedy stomach spleen stomach is one thing it this is this is really what you need to we want to remember if you know what spleen stomach heart and gallbladder are doing from a theoretical perspective and you know bansha you are you become very potent
01:44:02
okay it removes it can move and moisten dry and disperse which is a pretty interesting thing right it dries things out and moistens simultaneously it is toxic so it should be prepared notice in your textbook it's called gerbenshaw because ger means prepared bon sha because we wouldn't be using it raw okay so we'll keep track of that and it is a key directional herb it is moving downwards it has a downward
01:44:33
energy so it helps the stomach to descend remember that's the stomach's natural inclination although the stomach sits in a rising position it's energetic it's young energy is rising but it's it should always be sending yin energy downwards okay so and when we look at the name here fourth tone fourth tone bun sha pinella in the erasia family we see we'll see a number of herbs in this
01:45:04
they're all toxic and all need to be prepared the word shah here means summer so sha is a seasonal word so this is an herb of summer or inducing a state of summer in the body warm and dry and summer is the full season everything is out like this fully out so bansha is like helping that to kind of stay here and the word bon means half
01:45:41
so half summer warm and slightly toxic and acrid that's an interesting see the accurate nature of this from the spina bin saljing enter spleen stomach and lung now up here it said spleen stomach heart and gallbladder the textbook tells you it enters these that is correct but i will tell you that the effect that bansha has on the stomach around a heart and gallbladder is is underneath this
01:46:13
there's a lot of theory between spleen stomach and you know the stomach is hexagram 43 the heart is hexagram 44. they're related to each other spleen gives its clarity to the heart they sit and they clock pairs they sit right next to each other the stomach and the gallbladder are in charge the young organs in charge of wood and earth they're young so there's a lot of relationships that are formed here we'll die we'll dig into that later okay
01:46:46
you don't need to to get bogged down don't get too worried that it says something up here that it doesn't say down there we see that all the time okay it rolls off us like water it's okay we're going to be all right right all right so keep going lots to go here and we'll keep moving forward just keep reviewing your herbs and keep working on it you're all doing fantastic okay i will let you go keep keep reading the text keep reviewing every day
01:47:16
let me know if you have any questions or needs more than happy to help you okay thank you all for your tremendous work i know it's a lot i'll linger if there's any questions otherwise we'll see you all very soon okay thank you enjoy the sunny weekend that's coming it's going to be in the 80s fantastic yeah i have a question oh you got a question okay yeah you go you go i was um thinking about at the beginning
01:47:51
of class we were talking about fooling and um quasher and how they work together uh and i'm just having a mental block maybe i'm overthinking it but if we're looking at fooling like uh something that drains downward or drains water downward and then the glazer is heating it up to bring the water percolating upward again towards the lungs is that sort of like in my mind i'm seeing it like if the water is higher up we're helping bring it down to the heat source
01:48:22
so that it can be warmed to go back up again it just doesn't make sense to me that we're going up and down at the same time and how does that like harmonize it this is a this is a a western conundrum that we all face when studying chinese medicine you know what goes up must come down kind of thing uh you know um when we think of it from a western perspective if we're why would we send it up if we're trying
01:48:55
to bring it down you see what i mean but from the chinese perspective in the whole of that those are happening simultaneously i can only tell you it i can only explain it by telling you something completely different if you're doing qigong and you're standing doing qigong and you raise your arms up how is that possible it's only because you're rooting downwards that you're able to do that so
01:49:28
even as you're raising your arms up your energy is going downwards and even as you bring them down your energy is going up energy circulating constantly through the microcosm or get up down up down around that's the qi dynamic is that energy is moving up and down simultaneously let's put it into the context of the organ networks if i ask you what direction is the stomach in charge of moving
01:49:58
what will you tell me i would say stomach should go down stomach should go down so if that's the case then why does the stomach sit at 7 to 9 a.m in an advancing upward position in time and space so it's both of those things you see what i mean like it's not one or the other it's both it just depends what is going up in the stomach the young energy is in the stomach to go up and to bring that catalyzation the
01:50:33
sun from 7-9 is going up my appetite is going up my hunger for the world is going up my wanting to do something is going up my seize the day mentality is going up right however the yin the stuff that i'm consuming must go down and be transformed so that when it goes down and is transformed it goes up the clarity of it goes up the turbidity of it goes down same as the stomach yang going up but it actually is in charge of
01:51:03
bringing things down right so that dynamic is happening all the time everywhere it there is nowhere where that dynamic isn't happening and that's a product of something that i mentioned the other day where theory often it gives you little blips of things and takes you way way way out there and kind of our pre-hunt class is actually let's bring everybody back here to the beginning because what we all now want to do is go way out
01:51:35
there but back here at the beginning we've missed some key pieces that remind us that because once we get way out there we're like oh my god this is confusing i'm lost i don't even know where i am anymore do you see what i mean so part of it i think is that so let's go back to gwajar and fooling gwadar is activating the yawn so it's a thai yin and tai young are tie in is about dampness
01:52:06
okay that's the purview of the tie-in system is dampness it it uses dampness the spleen wants to be warm and dry the metal element wants to be warm and dry right but they are never warm and dry they're i mean they are we're trying to keep them that way but they're always constantly dealing with water here's some water what do you do with it well i'm going to steam it up here you take it here's some more water what are you going to do
01:52:36
right whereas the stomach never wants to be warm and dry it wants to be warm and moist the large intestine wants to be warm and moist so now you've got the desert and the swamp paired together large intestine and lung stomach and spleen right swamp and desert let's make sure everybody's happy right so see we've this might be the first time you've
01:53:07
heard that right in in such terms yeah but i think we've had little discussions sort of correct you've probably been said that before but like but that's it's fundamental to think of it that way just see what i mean like so we kind of raced ahead and then it get we get when we're looking back we're like what's going on there right so it's kind of like that so the wager and the fooling are about what physiologically should happen to water
01:53:40
first of all you you've said something in the beginning water that's up well if water's up what's its natural thing that's going to happen you don't have to do anything what's it going to do it's going to come down water exactly because water by its very nature seeks the low ground no matter what you do with water if i pour it out on the desk it's going to raise to the edges and go down it's going to find its way down going up is what's hard with the water going down is what's easy so i don't have to i don't have to help
01:54:12
what's easy i have to do what's hard you see what i mean so it's a combination of those things all working together there does that make a little more sense yeah no i think uh it that did help for sure because i was seeing it too as like a cycle and maybe when you have a little cog or a wrench in the cycle then you hit that point where things start accumulating and you might need to unclog it somehow and this pair will do
01:54:44
that absolutely so think to think about the water cycle itself i know you've looked out over the ocean or you've looked out over the hills and you see like clouds and sun coming down through them as if water is literally being evaporated upwards well it is that water that's there the sun the young energy is is evaporating that water upwards that water moves upwards into the atmosphere where it's moved kind of over the
01:55:14
mountains to the lung and there it coalesces and it comes down and you see it white on the mountain because the elevation is there where it comes down there but you see it moving down as it moves down it becomes the water it becomes the rivers it becomes the the valleys it becomes and it moves through right and then it does that all over again yeah right yeah no thank you that was good clarification for me of course you're doing great are we trying to go up and down at the same time and they were just stuck in the middle
01:55:47
well that's it stuck in the middle again that's the whole thing right that's the middle is the the the foundational pivot of all this nothing's happening without that middle um well i probably can't find it right now but i have this diagram about that i'm using in dual class and formula is talking about using wager and fooling glader and xiaoyao and gwadar and rogue together as these herbs you know gwadar is really starting at the kidney bladder on the
01:56:18
bottom of the wheel because that's where the kidney and blood are sitting in the five system that's the bottom energy coming out that's wager to the heart small intestine fire at the top rogue way is taking that and going go back down food says taking that go back down ganjang's putting that in the middle fooling's in the middle saying bland we can do let's send the water down but we're metal white we're using that system lung and bladder
01:56:49
are clock opposites right fooling's doing this water stuff through the bladder it's very complex like lots of little things like so once we get it once our theory gets a little bit deeper then it'll will be better so you notice in this class i'm bringing a lot of theory in all the time because we really can't understand how the herbs are working without the theory it really only is memorization without it theresa you had a question too what was
01:57:22
that yeah i was just uh well first of all i have to say this is all really exciting because i was i pulled out my binder i've been getting herbs from golden cabinet and i'm looking at all the herbs in my formula and we're covering a lot of them so i'm like so i'm able to yeah that's great what i'm taking and when you said the candle on the ledge and the water's rising and the fooling i was like oh yeah fooling's in my formula that makes sense um but one of them i i mean this is just
01:57:54
i was curious like one of my formulas is chaihu um gwadar tong and i was wondering how do formulas get named because is that like are you taking the two main active herbs and are using that to name the formula because uh dosage wise i mean chai who i have the 24 but wager i only have the nine so i'm curious how you name formulas it sounds like a formula from kamiko formula
01:58:26
so um well how a formula gets named is can be different depending on the error in which it's named um chaihu guajertong is a rare formula in the sense that it's combining wagertong and xiaochayutong together which 99 of the time you don't do you you don't combine a tai young remedy
01:58:57
with a xiaoyong remedy unless you have a taiyoung and xiaoyong combination problem so like if the person has a taiyong disease you use the taiyoung remedy if the person has a xiaoyong disease use the xiaoyang remedy gradertong and is those two formulas combined together guide your tongue and cha cha tank so the person is concurrently having both of those issues going on um and so that's where it gets its name by
01:59:32
combining those two together got it okay and then the other thing you don't have to actually answer this now and maybe it'll get talked about like later on but during the lecture when you start talking about spleen 1 and spleen 3 and those being young numbers and like and like the connections with all those and the names and stuff it kind of got me stuck and i kept thinking about that because it's hard for me to fathom these people years and years and years
02:00:03
ago did they intentionally like weave all these connections in there oh we're gonna you know name this this and that that and it just kind of blows my mind that these little points then like this one does this and this one does that and they're so close i have a hard time wrapping my mind around that like how they how they made all these connections and how like yeah um i
02:00:38
we we're we'll talk about that more as we go um we'll bring points and things in um [Music] i i would see it slightly differently i i don't i don't think well first of all i think nature made those connections the implicit order made those connections the dao made those connections um god made those connections um
02:01:13
it was created and existed who created a fractal right like um that kind of thing like you know it it's more of that it it it is and and it's not so much that someone created it it's that someone saw it okay because of like we saw it said before chapter one of the nejin the yellow emperor huang di was
02:01:46
trustworthy was selfless was wise was saw everything as sacred had compassion and developed keen powers of observing nature right so the more keen you can develop the power to see something the more you cultivate your chi and your shen and your jing the more those things become
02:02:17
cultivated and empowered the more you can see the more powerful it becomes right like the less cluttered your mind is the more clear it becomes right to see that implicit order in those types of things so you know i asked my qigong teacher uh wong ching you once like about how how how the how the acupuncture points kind of came to be in we were in china and i was just asking a random
02:02:51
question and he said i don't understand your question and and i said well how did the per how did we know that's there and that's this and that's whatever and and he said they just looked they could see it he's like i can't explain it to you i can only tell you that they could but they were more clear they were more you know if you've ever seen some type of healer or something or if someone you know
02:03:26
whatever we were in diagnosis lab and somebody comes by and feels your pulse and says oh you you have insomnia or something you're like oh my god how'd they know that well it's not any different than that right they had the ability to see something so ancient peoples were smarter were clearer were less distracted and people are people all through time and history so not not like everybody was wandering around like oh my god i'm enlightened that only was in the tongue dynasty you
02:03:57
know like um that that that kind of yeah mars without technology and all that yeah stimulation just said i mean so like that's what they did they worked to cultivate the ability to do that and to see that and people were farther closer to the earth and closer to the energy closer to the source of the creation of that on some levels so we could argue that it's those types
02:04:30
of things the points are living things what is an acupuncture point i mean we're going to talk a lot about this idea but the point itself is a living thing it's like a being that lives in your body it it it has a name it has a location it has a physiologic thing it has a it has a designation it it's not random it's not arbitrary it has all of those things and what what's your name teresa what is who are you right so it's not any different than
02:05:04
that right like teresa the name that can be named isn't the name but teresa is all of this parts of teresa so the point itself is just like that right but memorizing a point what does it do that's almost an effort in futility on a certain level do you see what i mean like so so yeah we're just at this stage
02:05:36
i like the first part you said it's very exciting it's like there's so much potential like because we'll kind of embrace that and then we'll see where we go from there cool right yeah yeah yeah you're doing great this is this is all good thoughts thank you you're most welcome and i like the imagery that you bring in and stuff it's helpful good wonderful that's fantastic all right well if you need anything you just let me know okay we'll talk to you all soon bye
02:06:06
bye have a good one youtube bye
