What Makes a Classical Herbalist? - with Andrew Nugent-Head

What Makes a Classical Herbalist?

In this Meetup, Andrew Nugent-Head, MSOM answers the questions of what defines a Classical Herbalist, and how one 'becomes' a Classical Herbalist. Moving to China at 18 in 1986, Andrew began studying Chinese medicine in traditional mentor-disciple relationships in Beijing in 1989. Starting with a brief history of his own path to becoming a Classical Herbalist in modern China, Andrew will then introduce the books and practitioners who defined Classical Herbalism through its history, laying out the the original paradigm of herbal medicine, how this changed and then shifted in and out of importance over time. Andrew will then finish with the importance of Zhang Zhongjing, the role of the Shanghan Lun in theory and its application in the clinic.


Andrew Nugent-Head, MSOM moved to China at  the age of 18  in 1986 and has spent his entire adult life there. He began studying Chinese medicine in traditional mentor-disciple relationships in 1989 and has been treating patients since 1992. Dedicated to preserving China's traditional arts and knowledge, Andrew founded the 501c3 not for profit Association for Traditional Studies, which has produced 70+ educational videos and organized over 150 seminars since 1993. When not teaching internationally, Andrew can be found with his wife JulieAnn (also a licensed practitioner), their three children and two dogs in a small tea village in the mountains outside of Hangzhou. There they treat local villagers and migrant workers free and are also completing their Chinese Medical Doctorate at the Zhejiang University of Chinese Medicine.
