Professor Chen Ming’s Discussion of Jing Fang and its Unique Applications
Our Pearls 2018 Two-Day seminar, Professor Chen Ming (陈明教授) will incorporate the basic teaching in Nei Jing such as the theory of Yin and Yang and the theory of Zang Xiang and how these theories can serve as a Guiding Principle for the application of Jing Fang in the management of many diseases . An example is “Banking the spleen earth to restrain water” for treatment of cardiac diseases. Professor Chen reiterated the significance of pathogenesis which plays an important role in the determination of optimum treatment.
Interpreter: Dr. Greta Young Jie De (Ph.D)
Topics covered for the two days are:
- Tonify the yang to engender yin for treatment of diabetes.
- Seeking the yin within the yang: According to the principle of yin and yang in Neijing is that yin and yang are divisible but inseparable, all yang phenomenon can be divided into yin and yang components as can all yin phenomena. Zhang Jing Yue said: “Those who are conversant in the tonification of yang must seek the yang from within the yin; the outcome is with the help of yin yang can be transformed without any limitation.; likewise those who are conversant in the tonification of yin must seek the yang from within the yin; with the help of the rising yang, there will be endless source of yin without exhaustion.
- From [Suwen: Zhi Zhen Yao Da Lun] said: “All diseases with aching pain and swelling of the instep are ascribed to fire. Professor Chen based on this theory treated many patients suffering from acute gout characterized by excruciating pain.
- Clinical application of Chai Hu GuiZhi Tang modified for treatment of generalized ache better known as “conjugation of liver qi or 肝气窜 bearing similar presentations as polymyalgia; liver cirrhosis, shoulder pain and depression etc.
- Further explanation and application of “Lifting the lid off the teapot”. For those who attended our Pearls 2017 Jing Fang Seminar and Webinar with Professor Chen Ming will appreciate the concept of this profound theory. I quote from one of the attendees of 2017 Pearls seminar. Quote: “At the July Seminar, Professor Chen Ming, of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, spoke about the ancient concept of ‘Lifting the Lid off the Teapot’. Directing our thinking to realising the importance of the lung Qi, – to relieve the pressure from a wide variety of water mechanisms below, hence, ‘Lifting the Lid off the Teapot’. So many acute and chronic presentations are related to this mechanism. Discussion was supported by reference to Shang Han Lun, Su wen, Ling Shu and from famous doctors and their works. Even without these references, or Professor Chen’s obvious conviction, after so many years of clinical practice, I was allowed the ‘bright light’ of recognition on this subject – similar to finding another key piece in a complicated puzzle. Indeed, I felt a close witness, not for the first time, to a command performance from a master medical Professor at the peak of his powers.” Unquote. (Testimonial from James Middleton, Melbourne)
None of the concepts and ideas from Professor Chen Ming’s 2017 seminar are new. Yet the “light bulb” moments from his clear and straightforward explanations has already opened countless possibilities in the clinic, in how I can view and apply the so-called “basic” but eternal principles underlying Chinese Medicine, to what uniquely appears in my patients today. I am greatly indebted to him and his masters for helping me further grasp how deep our medical art can be. I am reminded to never underestimate the levels of meaning to be continually uncovered in our Classics, and of the responsibility to make that root understanding our own.”
