I understand. You have quite a grasp of the sciences.
Sometimes I find that the eastern phenomenological ways of herbology can be a little elusive. That's why I like to integrate my western analytical ways of anatomy & physiology with the eastern principles. Combining both will give an excellent insight as to the specific problems of an individual. (My initial background in modern medicine was when I did 4 years in the Naval Medical Corps during the Vietnam era.) I had a lot of practical experience at seeing patients at "sick call." Clinical experience is invaluable and can temper the skills of eastern theories.
