My journey through the TCM quagmire
Don't get me wrong, I have the greatest admiration for anyone trying to practice Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have spent tens of thousands of dollars over 30 years travelling to conferences, seminars and retreats. Most were bitter disappointments. Most courses are selling a franchise or expensive equipment of dubious value. Many are completely worthless from a practical clinical standpoint. Loaded with vague theory and sketchy "research" often presented by individuals with little or no clinical experience. .... Frustrating to say the least.
Where we are now
I have spent over 35 years condensing the Modernist Research of experts like Felix Mann and P.E. Baldry with Traditional Methods for the Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal Conditions seen in my Chiropractic Practice. Stripping away all the confusing Philosophical and Cosmological references in favor of a Simplified Algorithm Specific to Chiropractic neuro-musculo-skeletal treatment. For each strategy I present; I have tried and discarded several less effective protocols. Striving for knowledge is a never ending endeavor. Each Pearl of wisdom is added to this course. It's all about the Happy Patient. Relieving their pain. Getting them well. Safely and effectively.
