Jeremy has been one of the pioneers in the field of Chinese
medicine in Europe and North America. He has had a seminal
influence on the development of both acupuncture and herbal
medicine in the West through his books and lectures.
He is known for his well-structured courses, his ability
to answer questions and stimulate discussion, and for his
lively and entertaining lecturing style. He has the ability
to clarify complex ideas and to ground theoretical concepts
in practical clinical experience.
COMBINING WESTERN HERBS AND CHINESE MEDICINE
For 15 years, Jeremy has specialized in integrating Western
herbs and Chinese medicine. He has developed a new integrated
system of herb
combination that brings together concepts from Western herbal tradition,
Chinese medicine, and phytopharmacology. This synthesis gives a broader
and deeper understanding of the individual herbs, enabling more sophisticated
herb combination and more effective prescription.
Jeremy has enormous enthusiasm for this topic, on which
he is a leading world authority. He gives trainings in
both Europe and North America, sharing both his great theoretical
knowledge and his long practical experience.
Jeremy has practiced acupuncture and herbal medicine,
in both England and USA, since 1977. He is not only an
expert clinician, but a gifted
teacher, who can show practitioners how to take a complex case with
a profusion of confusing details and cut through to the essentials
of the patient’s real needs.
He trains practitioners in how to create balanced herb
combinations that are both effective and safe, and further,
in how to modify these combinations to meet the changing
needs of the patient.

in their development of a wide range of titles in alternative medicine.
