    Dabbling: How to Avoid Becoming an Expert in Anything

    in Health

    When there are styles and systems that are complete and superiorly effective, why do so many Acupuncturists and Chinese Medicine practitioners not focus and develop proficiency in any one, instead choosing to dabble in several different systems?  Focus and discipline are especially important in our field, but are particularly lacking.  In this episode we discuss the complicating factors in our field, including the role academics and desperation play in preventing focus, ambition, and excitement, as well as lack of clinical proficiency.

    Winds of Change: The Importance of Clinical Experts As Teachers

    in Health

    We appreciate those who fought to make this profession licensed in the United States and who set up the programs in Chinese medicine, making this a valid career path. However, since it's inception in the United States and the West, Chinese medicine has been ruled largely by academics, scholars, anthropologists, and historians. There has been, and continues to be, a paucity of true clinical experts teaching this medicine. This is largley due to the fact that the leaders in this field simply lack the large, consistent patient volume needed to become expert clinicians. Chinese medicine colleges and state organizations are increasingly focused on revenue, administrative in-fighting and clinically irrelevant adademic ponderings. Meanwhile, the quality of clinical education is declining. Graduates enter the real world of managing patients' many health concerns with largely ineffective skill sets, based on theories regurgitated by scholars, most completely lacking adequate pulse diagnosis skills and/or highly effective acupuncture methods. Luckily, there are American and Western Chinese medicine practitioners who are seeing 300-600 patient visits per week who are stepping forward to teach the real life, clinically proven, practical skills so badly needed to not only survive but thrive practicing this medicine. This is medicine, it has real-world consequences and is not a theoretical exercise, people are sick and they depend on us to get them better. The time has come to listen to those on the front lines, making this medicine work everyday.

    Taipei, Taiwan's Bustling Lunar(Chinese)New Year Shopping Center-Dihua Street

    in Travel

     


    Dihua Street or Grocery Street is where many residents of Taipei, Taiwan head to for stocking up on food, snacks and treats for the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year. I recently visited the famous shopping market just two days before New Year’s Eve. I was there to shop, sample food, indeed why many people pay a visit and talk to some Taiwanese about why they enjoy Lunar New Year.


    Dihua market, for most of the year is Dihua Street-a center in Taipei for traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, fabrics, incense, and Taiwanese tea processing. First constructed in 1850, it’s original name was Center Street.


    This is the busiest time of year for Dihua street, with extra food stalls and vendors using all kinds of tactics to get your attention. Most of which are pretty friendly.


    Sampling is big here and many people come just to load up on the freebies. If you’re new to the food of Taiwan it’s a great place to learn about some of the traditional snacks and newer items with ingredients that can range from peanuts to dried fish.


    It’s Taiwan, so of course there’s always someone cooking food around the corner.


    The southern portion of Dihua is the oldest street in Taipei, dating back to Dutch rule from 1624-1661.


    In Taiwan many markets were built around temples and Dihua is no exception with worshippers getting in their last wishes for the year, or perhaps a good start to the new year.

    Eleventh House Radio: Aquarius New Moon, Chinese NewYear And The Marcobot

    in Paranormal

    On tonight's version of Eleventh House Radio, we'll look into the Aquarian New Moon, and what it means for not just this month, but the rest of 2016, especially if we factor in the new, Chinese, Lunar New Year, aka "The Fire Monkey."  We'll also look at Mars and it's trajectory over the next eight months as well.  Along the way, we'll also have a look at the neural meltdown of one, Marco Rubio, who repeated the same line, over and over again in the last Republican debate, dubbing him with the dubious nickname, "Marcobot."
