Traditional Chinese Medicine Podcasts
These and other topics might just be up your alley. Then this list is for you.
A fairly in-depth understanding of Taoist topics are at the root, such as Yin and Yang,The Five Phases of Energy Transformation (popularly known as The Five Elements) and others. Other concepts, such as Qi – the Meridians they travel through, the Zang-Fu (the organ system), the San Jiao or Triple Warmer / Burner, the Three Dan Tian and overall, the Traditional view of the Body.
Books and treatises on a multitude of topics abound, such as the classic Yellow Emperor’s Internal Scripture, the Treatise on Cold Damage Disorders, Recipes for Fifty-Two Ailments, the Essential Prescriptions from the Golden Cabinet and many others. In modern times we have the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as countless others. Famous doctors of TCM abound as well, like Hua Tuo, Sun Simiao, Tao Hongjing, Zhang Yuansu, Li Shizhen, and still…You guessed it – many others.
But just what is it? I’ll give you a hint: It is NOT simply Acupuncture. Why? Because Acupuncture is simply one small modality, like prescribing pills in Western medicine. Is that all that a Western doctor does? Of course not. And it’s obviously not the be-all, end-all of the medicine system itself! In fact, most pharmaceuticals come from the natural world.
Which is why we also have another modality in TCM: Herbology. And yet, there’s more. Special Massage or Tui Na, Moxibustion, Acupressure, Cupping, Gua Sha, Bonesetting, Nutrition, Qigong, and yes, still other modalities, help to piece together what people typically call “Traditional Chinese Medicine.”
In this listing of Traditional Chinese Medicine Podcasts, you’ll find entertaining yet educational podcasts that discuss these topics and more. So dive in!
Kung fu students are sent here when they want more in-depth TCM info., than gleaned in the brief topics in class (see What Our Students Say about our classes).
It’s in no way exhaustive or complete. But it’s a heck of a start.
If you know of any other Podcasts you think would be a nice addition to this listing, don’t hesitate to let us know!
Thanks and Enjoy! 🙂

Qiological - An In-depth Traditional Chinese Medicine Podcast
Oriental medicine was not developed in a laboratory. It does not advance through double-blind controlled studies, nor does it respond well to petri dish experimentation.
Our medicine did not come from the statistical regression of randomized cohorts, but from the observation and treatment of individuals in their particular environment.
It grows out of an embodied sense of understanding how life moves, unfolds, develops and declines. Medicine comes from continuous, thoughtful practice of what we do in clinic, and how we approach that work.
The practice of medicine is more — much more — than simply treating illness. It is more than acquiring skills and techniques. And it is more than memorizing the experiences of others. It takes a certain kind of eye, an inquiring mind and relentlessly inquisitive heart.
Qiological is an opportunity to deepen our practice with conversations that go deep into acupuncture, herbal medicine, cultivation practices, and the practice of having a practice.
It’s an opportunity to sit in the company of others with similar interests, but perhaps very different minds. Through these dialogues perhaps we can better understand our craft.
The Chinese Herb Health & Longevity Show

The history, healing, and empowerment of Classic Chinese Medicine, herbs, and thought.

Dr. George also completed programs of study at both the Shanghai and Chengdu hospitals of Traditional Chinese Medicine, People’s Republic of China.
Contrary to popular belief, acupuncture is not just sticking needles into people.
It is a way of gently coaxing healing from the body, by helping the body to listen to itself.
While acupuncture is one of the pillars of Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, dietary habits and the influences of foods, movement and postural practices, and a vital blend of ancient physiology along with a keen observational eye for how multiple systems work together all are aspects of Chinese medicine that we will discuss here on Everyday Acupuncture.
So in addition to acupuncture we will touch on those wider aspects of Chinese medicine. And even some aspects of modern medicine as they relate to the ancient Chinese wisdom about health and well-being.
