Topic:  A closer look at Pulse Diagnosis

Language: English

Speaker: Dr. Singh


Diagnosis is the foremost and very first important step in every system of medicine before the line of treatment is decided. In this modern fast-paced era, we have many modern technological diagnostic tools, as a result of which we are losing our sense of clinical diagnosis. No wonder treatment is often started before the correct diagnosis is made, and sometimes it is only established on the autopsy table just to satisfy our inquisitive minds.  Due to the fact that we, as TCM practitioners and Acupuncturists, do not have access to many of these modern diagnostic methods, and also due to the fundamentally different approach to diagnosis and treatment in TCM, it becomes all the more important to learn and master our traditional diagnostic methods, which requires a lot of patience and practice, especially in pulse diagnosis. Although there are some similarities between western medicine and TCM pulse diagnosis, in certain other aspects there are many essential and remarkable differences, and these will be discussed in detail during this workshop. In this seminar participants will learn the basic understanding of the physiology of pulse formation, Foetus pulse, Children pulse and also how to diagnose infants diseases when pulse positions are not fully developed.

Speaker’s Brief Bio:

Prof. Dr. B.K. Singh, B.Sc., M.B.B.S, D.Ac., Ph.D., D.Litt., D.Sc. is the President and Dean of The International Acupuncture Academy of Bhupendra Techniques, Vancouver, Canada. He is a western trained medical doctor from India and post-graduate Acupuncture specialist with 44 years of clinical, teaching, and research experience. He has traveled to over 40 countries to promote Classical Acupuncture, Bhupendra Techniques Acupuncture, and his original health concepts by conducting workshops, seminars, and training and treatment camps. He has been actively involved with many international associations and societies in humanitarian work. He and his thousands of students around the world are helping needy patients during his treatment camps, including the Mother Theresa post-traumatic paraplegia and leprosy home in India. Based on his extensive clinical experience and knowledge of both eastern and western medical philosophies he has developed his own acupuncture techniques for treating chronic patients.

Dr. Singh has published 22 books on Acupuncture and health-related subjects, over 135 research papers, delivered keynote addresses, and chaired several scientific sessions in many international Congresses all over the world. He is the recipient of many international prestigious awards and accolades for his humanitarian and research work in countries such as UK, US, Holland, Sweden, Denmark, Czech Republic, Russia, Australia, Japan, Korea, Sri Lanka, and India. This includes the Albert Schweitzer Award in Medicine (Holland), Fellowship for Professional Excellence by Dag Hammarskjold Award Committee (Denmark), Service Knighthood (Australia), Certificate of Honors (University of San Francisco, USA), and Gold Medals for outstanding contributions to Acupuncture formally presented by Mr. Carl Nobel in Stockholm in 1983. His celebrated book “Acuvaccination” on the preventive aspects of acupuncture has been presented to the Nobel library for record purposes. He has worked with the World Health Organization during a smallpox eradication program in India and was also awarded as “Best Doctor” by the Director of the Medical Health Services for performing the maximum number of vasectomy operations in the shortest time in 1973. He has also received a “Gem of Alternative Medicines” award in Calcutta, India.

He introduced TCM and Acupuncture programs in Langara College, Vancouver, in 1999 with his copyright curriculum. It was probably the very first time that TCM and Acupuncture were taught as a three to the five-year full-time program including a doctorate from a public institution outside China.
