I was excited to welcome Z’ev Rosenberg onto the podcast recently. Z’ev is a practitioner with over 30 years of experience in practice. He teaches and nurtures the Chinese herbal program at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, as well as working with K’an Herb Company & writing on his own blog. Visit those links to learn more about him. You should do so, because what I’ve said barely scratches the surface of what Z’ev offers the Chinese medicine profession.
In this podcast, we mainly discussed the state & nature of the Chinese medicine profession. Z’ev helps us understand the early history of the profession in the states, how things have changed, what troubling and promising streams he sees coming together now. We cover topics like the community acupuncture model, how we should do integrative medicine, how to study Chinese medicine and more.
Do yourself a favor and listen to this without delay.
Some of the texts that Z’ev mentions (aff link)
- Shang han lun (Treatise on Cold Damage, Zhang Zhongjing)
- Jin gui yao lue (Pearls from the Golden Cabinet, Zhang Zhongjing)
- Nan jing (Classic of difficulties)
- Huang di nei jing su wen (Yellow Emperor’s simple questions)
- Huang di nei jing ling shu (Yellow Emperor’s divine pivot)
He also references the Pacific Symposium, a West coast conference focused on Chinese medicine that comes up every year in the fall, coming again during the second week of November in 2012.
