2021-Dec-30:  Fundamentals of pattern analysis for classical Chinese medicine

Classical Chinese medicine (CCM) is rooted in the ancient religious philosophy of Daoism. However, during the latter half of the 20th century, those links were purged by the Communist Chinese and substituted with a throughly westernized, medicalized doppelgänger popularly known worldwide as "TCM". In a series of five introductory lecture-articles, I explore:

  • How and why was CCM purged, how might it be restored? — philosophical-historical aspects, ethical dilemmas
  • Rarely discussed aspects of CCM pattern differentiation: the mathematics & logic

The transcripts of these lectures have undergone many months of editing, correction, and suggestions from members of the RMHInet brainstorming network. Though these lectures are intended primarily for people new to this subject, they also contain much material that even experienced practitioners and scholars may find illuminating.

The COVID scamdemic alone has inflicted economic misery on the world's population and has seriously damaged the credibility of the medical profession.



2020-Nov-16:  Ways to keep in touch and overcome censorship

After Dec 06, we will cease emailing the RMHI Herbalists Review newsletter. Instead, we've provided multiple ways for you to stay in touch with RMHI, all of which we believe are more reliable and resistant to censorship than conventional email.



2020-Nov 07:  About our updated website — overcoming the challenges of censorship

Technology should be our servant, not our master.
After posting a controversial article on our website (in 2020 August), RMHI experienced its first major bout of censorship:

  • Emails to our subscribers were suppressed en masse and a multitude of them were auto-unsubscribed within a few minutes.
  • Over the next few weeks, our Google rankings put us into the dungeon.

This was not entirely unexpected...
