Unlocking the Secrets of The Body

Online Course: The Five Elements or Five Phases and Western Organ Functions

Our Unlocking the Secrets of The Body online course consists of nine modules, outlined below. It provides an overview of the human body, mind and spirit as seen from the perspective of Eastern Five Elements or Five Phases and Western Biology.

A lot of terminology gets thrown about in both Eastern (TCM) and Western Medicine. We thought we would provide you with a simple overview that gives you have a side-by-side comparison of how both systems view, organize and define the body and its functions. We will describe fundamental Eastern (TCM) organ system principals and then give you the Western perspective. It is fascinating to see where they overlap and where they diverge.
