Good Afternoon everyone,
Firstly let me introduce myself, my name is Nicole and currently studying both Five Element & Traditional Chinese Medicine in the UK.
As part of my course we have to conduct 'full traditional diagnoses' on willing participant who come with a problem. It is then for me to diagnose and work out treatment plan etc. I find this a very valuable part of our learning process.
My question is, my 'patient' has a long history of marijua abuse, he has issues surrounding sleep (dream disturbed if he doesnt smoke marijuana) and motivation (does not follow plans through), i therefore would like to kindly ask either for some information regarding how marijuana affects the systems in accordance with Chinese Medicine or any pointers to where i can find this information out.
Regardng the above, i presume that the patients yang energy is affected and also his Hun but i am interested in the pathology behind smoking marijuan.
I hope this makes sense!
Any help rendered will be most appreciated.
