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.
