Standard TCM textbook approaches teach practitioners of Chinese medicine to use eight parameter diagnostics, determining whether a patient suffers from excess or deficiency. Since these two states are opposite in nature, they are most often assumed to manifest in different patients with completely different diseases. Most chronic patients, however, present with complex conditions that involve both excess and deficiency. Dr. Fruehauf will explain why the black and white herbal approach is not useful for most chronic patients we see in modern times, and how long-term patient care for serious disorders almost always requires the composition of formulas that balance the prescription of hot and cold, dry and moist, internal and external substances.
