    Thanksgiving In the Mist of Storms & Trials

    in Spirituality

    This week on "Christ Voice of Thunder" we will continue ouf discussion on Patience in the Mist of tRials and Storms. Whenever God allows suffering into our lives it’s because he has something better for us. Of course, we don’t want to go through trials! But even in the midst of bad, painful circumstances when can choose to be thankful. Why? Trials and Storms are painful, but God wants us to endure through thanksgiving and praise.

    Jesus went through rough times during His earthly ministry, and if we want to be like Him, (which is what the Christians life is all about), we too will have some hard knocks.

    1 Peter 5:10 English Standard Version (ESV)

    10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

    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.
