Introduction to the first International Jing Fang Conference - hosted by Phoenix Medical and Mr. Da Peng Zhang with speeches from Prof. Huang Huang

Professor Huang Huang will be the first to lecture, with an introduction to Jing Fang. Huang Huang will be explaining what Jing Fang is and how it differs from Traditional Chinese Medicine. He will then explain the importance of Jing Fang and why we should be promoting the practice, particularly in the West. He will then teach us the foundations of Jing Fang: how to identify formula presentations within patients. This enables practitioners to deduce the patient's health for appropriate treatment.
The Shang Han Lun was designed upon formula presentations, where disease patterns are identified and then assigned to the appropriate formula.
For example, symptoms such as vomiting blood and nosebleeds, would warrant a prescription of Xi Xin Tang. Cramps on the calf muscle and feet would call for Xiao Yao Gan Cao Tang. Ban Xia Xie Xin Tang would be used for symptoms such as vomiting and bloated/distended abdomen.
Huang Huang's style of Jing Fang involves the treatment triangle, which looks at the disease, the patient and formulation. The Formulation-Patient side is based on analysing the body constitution, which entails the body type, muscle composition, skin, digestion, pulse, body language, and diseases within the family. The aim of this is to identify a common pattern within the patient. The purpose of formula presentation is to adjust and stimulate the patient's own immune system.
Lastly, Huang Huang will give delegates a few words of wisdom from his extensive career in Jing Fang to help you succeed.
Professor Huang Huang is well-known for his engaging style of teaching. He's able to break down complex ideas and explain them in a way that's easy to understand. He also includes real cases from his years of practice to explain texts in Jing Fang that historically, may not have been well explored. You are guaranteed to find learning with Professor Huang very enjoyable.
Professor Huang Huang will then follow on from this lecture with a full 3 day CPD course on the 4-6th October at this venue. The course is titled Body Constitution Differentiation and Clinical Application. This lecture will be translated into English.

The concept of an immune response is described in Chinese medicine as early as in the Han dynasty. The Huangdi Neijing, or the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon, is the first and foremost medical textbook to spell out in great detail the step by step process that the body goes through when responding against pathogenic affliction. Analyzing relevant passages of said text can therefore instruct us in the original view of how the immune system works according to classical Chinese medicine and how it loses its balance under atmospheric influences. The treatment of illness then can be seen as the restoration of said imbalance. To guide the treatment of such illness, as understood through the Han dynasty lens, one needs to employ a Han dynasty contemporary therapy. Such system is then found in the Treatise on Cold Damage Shanghan Lun and Essentials of the Golden Cabinet Jingui Yaolue, works written around 200 CE by Zhang Zhongjing, and detailing the treatment of an immune system’s response to external pathogenic influences. This immune system, its imbalances and its consequent therapeutic rectification is described in a six-fold model of six conformations, their clinical presentations and the consequent herbal prescriptions that treat them. During this presentation, Dr. Versluys will show that having the aforementioned classical understanding of the immune system and that using the differentiation model and herbal prescriptions that go along with this view, can provide the herbalist a powerfully streamlined work method for the treatment of auto-immune disorders. Objective: To introduce the participant to the classical Chinese medicine understanding of the immune system and how it responds to external triggers in Chinese medical terms To introduce the participant in how the Six Conformation model of the Shanghan Lun is the most apt system for categorizing the body’s immune system, as well as guiding consequent treatments of its clinical irregularities
