This chapter discusses the development of treatment strategies after readers have learned energetic anatomy, physiology, psychology, pathophysiology, and diagnostic techniques and formulations. It provides details on balancing excesses or deficiencies of Yin, Yang, Qi, and Blood; on managing excesses of wind, heat, phlegm, and dampness; on dealing with stagnation of Qi and stasis of Blood; and on treating multiple organ energy imbalances. It provides advice on how to manage acute and chronic conditions and how to manage symptoms and treat underlying causes simultaneously. It discusses the specifics that are unique to treating women, children, adolescents, and the elderly because their energetic natures are different from one another.
