The Chinese herbal medicine approach that our practitioners use in clinic is different to the standard approach often used in most other clinics. At komyuniti we use classical herbal formulas also known as Jing Fang. This form of herbal practice is based on a systematic approach to herbal formulas taken from the ancient medical text published in 210AD by Zhang Zhong Jing, titlied the Shang Han Lun (Treatise on Cold Damage) and Jin Gui Yao Lue (Prescriptions from the Golden Cabinet). This clinical medical text contains strategies and formulas that are precise and effective in the treatment of today’s commonly presented diseases.
The Jing Fang herbal approach uses a 6 division system of diagnosis and treatment. A person's signs and symptoms are categorised into one or multiple divisions. The divisions have matching formulas which are then prescribed. This provides a precise and tailored treatment for the person and not the disease. Resulting in promoting the body's natural ability to restore health and homeotstasis.
Our practitioners have studied and are trained via various teachers of the Shang Han Lun such as:
Arnaud Versluys - Institute of Canonical East Asian Medicine.
Professor Huang Huang - Nanjing University of CHinese Medicine
Dr Feng Shi Lun - Chief Physician at the Minister of Health China-Japan Friendship Hospital Beijing
