‘In Tao philosophy, emotions are energy states, in healing them, we harmonize our lives’
TCM & F7H insights & philosophy
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated, and prevented illness for over twenty-five centuries. It can correct disorders, alter states of mind, enhance immunity and increase our capacity for creativity, work and pleasure.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on the observation of nature and natural phenomena. TCM views humans as a microcosm of the universe that surrounds them. Humans, and all life forms, are seen as inseparable from nature. Humans represent the juncture between the Cosmos and Earth, a fusion of cosmic and terrestrial forces. Sustained by the power of earth and transformed by the power of the Cosmos, humanity cannot be separated from Nature—we are nature, manifest as living organisms.
As all things are seen as being interconnected, TCM postulates that what is good for nature is good for humanity, what is good for the mind is good for the body, and so on. To harm a part is to harm the whole; what is bad for the heart is bad for the body: nothing exists in isolation. This philosophy also implies that what harms one person damages all people and what injures the earth injures us all. TCM practitioners are practitioners of the “vitalist doctrine”, which states that “man assists, but nature heals”; as opposed to the “doctrine of specific cause”, which postulates that a single micro-organism could produce specific symptoms in healthy organisms.
All TCM theories are based on the observation of the cycles in nature and the dynamic interplay evident in natural phenomena. TCM theories and principles are not absolutes. They are simply tools as are fusion7healing to help organize our thinking and treat disharmonies in the system. It is a mistake to become rigid in the use of one theory only, since the system allows much flexibility. Here are some of the general terms and theories we apply: Qi; Yin; Yang, Organ Meridians; Yin-Yang Theory; Five-Element Theory; Organ Meridian Functions and Dysfunctions; Cause of Disease Theory; Tongue Analysis among others.
In this course, we will use TCM and F7H concepts to communicate with the innate healing abilities of the living organism. The goal of all TCM and fusion7healing is to return the individual to a state of dynamic balance, enabling him or her to achieve their optimal level of well being.
