Cyclical Remedy Complexes: Their Origin within Traditional Chinese Medicine and Relevance for Miasmatic Theory
26 September 2017 (online)
The roots of cyclical remedy analysis within traditional Chinese medicine's Five Phases theory are introduced. Relevance for clinical practice including illness interpretation, preventive application via a self-diagnosis mandala, and a more coherent understanding of the five original miasms (expressing five core existential dilemmas) are explained. This article presents a case illustration of anorexia nervosa and an analysis of three conditions: Alzheimer's disease, cancer of the breast, and cancer of the large intestine.
