 +Introduction to the Comparison of Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M. or Traditional Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture) with Indo-Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu Ayurveda and Tibetan Medicine (Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine - T.A.M.). ​
 +
 +Please watch our videos on: http://​www.archive.org/​search.php?​query=TCM401
 +
 +These Hi-Def HDTV videos and the MP3 audio files are the first in a 3 trimester unit (45 class hours long) series of lectures aimed and comparing, contrasting and synthesizing the 2500 year old practice of Chinese Medicine (Zhong Yi or TCM) with the 2500 year old Indian Ayurveda and 1300 year old Tibetan Ayurveda systems (TAM). The goal of this lecture program is to assist the student in seeing and understanding their vast commonalities in both theory (concepts) and practice (clinic). ​
 +
 +This rarely presented synthesis of the healing wisdom of these three great cultures (China, India and Tibet) will not only compare-contrast the theory of these two time-honored healing systems, but more importantly,​ will examine in detail the clinical practice aspects -- both herbal connections (Indian, Tibetan and Chinese herbs and minerals) and acupressure (Marmas in Ayurvedic Sanskrit) with acupuncture in the Chinese system. ​
 +
 +We examine the three doshas (Tridosha - Vata-Pitta-Kapha) relationship to major concepts in Chinese Medicine that are often spoken of by acupuncturists to their patients. Some of these relationship comparisons include:
 +1. Vata Dosha (Space and Air - Wind, Cold, Qi [Prana in Ayurvedic Sanskrit]), ​
 +
 +2. Pitta Dosha (Fire and Water - Spleen Qi [Jathar Agni in Sanskrit], Heat, Damp-Heat, Blood [Rakta Dhatu in Sanskrit], and Yang), ​
 +
 +3. Kapha Dosha (Water and Earth - Phlegm-Mucous [Ama in Sanskrit], Damp-Cold, Jing Qi [Ojas in Sanskrit] and Yin).
 +
 +Commentary on and Lectures from the ancients texts of Indo-Sino-Tibetan Medicine: Chinese Classic of the Yellow Emperor - Huang Di Nei Jing (~200 B.C.), Shang Han Lun (~150 A.D. traditional Chinese: 傷寒論; pinyin: Shāng Hán Lùn), Divine Farmers Materia Medica (~150 A.D. The Divine Farmer'​s Herb-Root Classic (traditional Chinese: 神農本草經;​ pinyin: Shénnóng běncǎo jīng) with Charaka of Patanjali (~200 B.C.), Sushruta of Nagarjuna (~200 A.D.), Astanga Hridayam of Vagbhata (~700 A.D.) and the "Four Tibetan Medical Tantras"​ (~800 A.D. "rGyud - bzhi" in Tibetan, pronounced "Ju Shee" --- "​Si-Bu-Yi-Dian in Mandarin --- in Sanskrit it is called the "​Amrta-hrdaya-astanga-guhyopadesa-tantra"​ or Amrita Hridaya Astanga Guhyopadesha Tantra)

 +Be sure you listen to all of the preliminary lectures (usually 30 minute long for each video or audio) found at:

 +If not, you will be lost and confuse the context of this video.
 +Then, be sure you also watch - listen to the next 30 minute long lecture after this one. It is found at: 
 +http://​www.archive.org/​details/​TCM401_Ayurvedic_Chinese_Medicine_002_Comparison
 +http://​www.archive.org/​details/​TCM401_Ayurvedic_Chinese_Medicine_003_Comparison
 +If not, you will miss out on the foundation explanations of 1. Vata, 2. Pitta and 3. Kapha Doshas and their subtypes and their comparison-contrast with the Chinese Medicine concepts of 1. Qi - Wind - Cold - Yin Deficiency; 2. Yang - Spleen-Qi - Heat - Damp-Heat - Blood - Excess; and 3. Yin - Fluids - Phlegm-Mucous - Damp-Cold - Jing Qi. This first three videos are required preparations lectures for the more advanced and clinical oriented lectures that compare the two countries herbal and acupressure-puncture systems.
 +The more advanced lectures after these initial 3 videos classes (listed above) provide a detailed introduction that builds on these basics by focusing on diagnosis of Prakruti (genetic constitution of vata-pitta-kapha compared with modern Chinese Five Element typing) and Vikruti (imbalance of three doshas of:
 +
 +1. VATA -- Space-Air Elements -- Movement and Catabolism -- Organs like colon - large-intestine - triple-warmer-circulation - Mind (Prana Vayu in Sanskrit), ​
 +2. PITTA -- Fire-Water Elements -- Digestion and Metabolism -- Organs like liver-gallbladder - small-intestine - Mind (Sadhaka Pitta), and 
 +3. KAPHA -- Water-Earth Elements -- Growth and Anabolism -- Phlegm-Fat-Minerals - Organs like lungs-stomach-heart-kidneys-urinary-bladder - Mind (Tarpaka Kapha). ​
 +
 +compared with imbalances of: 
 +
 +1. QI -- Wind - Cold - Yin Deficiency - TCM Element Metal; ​
 +2. YANG -- Spleen-Qi - Heat - Damp-Heat - Blood - Excess - TCM Elements Fire and Wood; and 
 +3. YIN -- Fluids - Phlegm-Mucous - Damp-Cold - Jing Qi - TCM Elements Water and Earth).
 +
 +Although we will lecture from the ancient Chinese medical classics, we rely heavily on the two modern TCM textbooks that are popular in the colleges of Chinese medicine in the USA and Europe:
