Oriental Medicine Clinical Notes – Theory

by Robert Gastón, OMD

This text represents decades of clinical observation incorporated into notes from Oriental medical school. The theoretical basis of Oriental Medicine is the recognition that Qi is what makes life happen. This concept is still beyond current understanding and as such is constantly facing resistance from Western medical science and practitioners. Nevertheless, the effectiveness of this extraordinary medicine is undeniable. Hopefully soon, we will begin to understand Qi, integrate the art and science of Oriental medicine into mainstream medical practice and thus transform our ability to heal beings.

This comprehensive text covers all the bases of Oriental Medicine Diagnosis, Clinical observation, Ear and Scalp Acupuncture, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, etc… It presents this extraordinary medicine in a beautiful format that makes studying and referencing a pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book – I’m currently a student of Dr Gaston …

July 1, 2017

I’m in love with this book – i’m currently a student of Dr Gaston’s (in Oriental Medicine and he is teaching us so much he is not only a Dr of OM but he has his practice here in Florida @ the Quan Yin medical center in Miami shores. He is an ordained Tibetan monk as well . Yes we have a great teacher and monk! To us this was a jaw dropper but in Tibetan Buddhism it’s allowed for a monk to serve humanity in such a way. I highly recommend this book. Very short and sweet but very powerful book. we all did well on herbs3 because of they way he teaches. he used this book along with the school power points and let me say this book is amazing – you’ve got gorgeous pics and very simple explanations –  its just single herbs and it’s great if you know how to use it – you can figure out the formulas or use just a formula book – either Bensky or another from Amazon (i’m sure you’ll find many) Dr. Gastón will come out with a precise formula book he’s working on and he’s got other books – maybe you guys can google them. don’t know if they’re on Amazon – haven’t checked yet. Gotta ask him. Hope my info was helpful if you want to talk to him call him at the office tell him Alain from acupuncture college in Miami sent you > 305-758- 7011 and it’s ok – you can call him – he would be glad you did. If your in the area go visit this Dr.

Be well !

5.0 out of 5 stars  An AMAZING Work by an Amazing Doctor

May 22, 2015

This is an AMAZING work by Dr. Gastón . I’m a student of Chinese medicine. This is not a ‘How to’ book but rather an exhaustive compilation of healing herbs. The photos are magnificent. Most herb books show you a picture of dried powder, Dr. Gastón  shows you the actual herb, live, and in may cases flowering. This is not necessarily a book for a casual reader, although it may well interest them. This book describes the herb in detail and tells you its effects. Bear in mind, this is the Chinese approach so be prepared for references to the 5 elements , the 6 external causes of disease, things like stagnant Qi and more. If you are student , you NEED THIS BOOK.


5.0 out of 5 stars  A Profound Book
