The eight extraordinary channels contain some of the most powerful means to influence our fertility and our overall health. While knowledge of these channels predates the Nei Jing, the perspective on what these channels are and what they do has evolved. While this evolution resulted in the introduction of some useful treatment strategies, it unfortunately did not retain the most important part: a fundamental understanding of these energetics. As a result, we are only tapping into a small portion of these channels’ potential.
This seminar introduces an alternative and consistent theory of the eight extra channels and demonstrates how it can be used to achieve extraordinary results in a wide range of fertility issues.
A) The seminar begins with a discussion of the inconsistencies and limitations of modern eight extra channel theory. It then derives both structure and function in a way that resolves the inconsistencies presented by what we typically learn about these channels. The derivation presented predicts the coupled pairs, but enables one to see the limitations of these combinations, and how different combinations can be much more powerful.
B) The second part of the seminar discusses diagnostics including pulse diagnosis, abdominal palpation, tongue diagnosis, face reading and examination of the teeth.
C) The third part of the seminar provides examples of treatment protocols for a variety of stubborn infertility conditions including: conception facilitation, anovulation, amenorrhea, recurrent pregnancy loss, miscarriage prevention, poor ovarian quality, advanced maternal age, aneuploidy (chromosomal abnormalities) and the treatment of accumulations and concentrations (uterine, ovarian and breast masses).
The course presents two longer case studies to demonstrate an in-depth diagnosis, analysis and treatment management, as well as a number of shorter case studies. The cases chosen all had relatively dramatic results and herb formulas and acupuncture point combinations, including stimulation methods, dosages, etc. are included.
Note: This course presents both basic and advanced material. However it does NOT present the common “meridian map”. Instead, the course postulates that the meridian map is somewhat like patent medicine. Just as the herbal formula si wu tang gives one strategy to approach tonifying blood, the common meridian map is only one idea of how to approach a particular aspect of the eight extra channels. This course is not about throwing away that map, but rather realizing its limitations as only one strategy, and offers a more effective approach to using the eight extra channels to treat infertility.
“After 20 years in clinical practice, it is not often that encounter material that I find revolutionary, and game-changing. Brandon Horn’s new course on the Eight Extra Meridians picks up where he and Wendy Yu’s course on Optimizing Ovarian Reserve left off, and takes it to the next level. Absolutely brilliant presentation, and not something you will find in any book or other workshop on the Eight Extras. You owe it to yourself and your patients to take this course.” ~ Ray Rubio
