master the art of traditional pulse diagnosis

The pulse is one of the most accurate clinical diagnostic indicators available to a practitioner who knows how to correctly read and interpret pulse images. It can reveal underlying disease causes, identify symptoms and even tell the emotional state of the patient. It can be used to assess both physical and energetic disturbances and can also warn of conditions and illnesses that may occur in advance.

Mastery of pulse examination is vitally important for making a correct diagnosis in most traditional medicine systems including Chinese Medicine, Unani-Tibb, Ayurveda, Tibetan Medicine and others. It is equally beneficial in modern conventional medicine and can aid in deeper diagnostic insights in disciplines such as naturopathy, homeopathy etc as well.

Learn the tradition and art of pulse diagnosis from renowned author, lecturer and Doctor of Chinese Medicine, Dr Feroz Osman-Latib. Dr Latib studied Chinese Medicine in Australia and China and has taught pulse diagnosis at several universities including the South Australian School of Natural Medicine and the University of Western Cape in South Africa.

He has compiled all his pulse diagnosis experience into this detailed 8 module course that will transfer this valuable skill to any interested practitioner of natural as well as conventional medicine.

The course can be started at any time and includes both theoretical components as well as intensive practical sessions scheduled throughout the year where Dr Latib will personally ensure that participants are correctly feeling and identifying pulse images. The content is not exclusive to Chinese pulse diagnosis but encompasses many different methodologies including ayurvedic, unani-tibb, 5 element systems etc. The skills learnt can be used by practitioners of any modality in order to make a better diagnosis and thereby administer a more effective therapy.
