An in-depth understanding of Chinese dietary principles With Danny Blyth and Greg Lampert
Meet the team for the 3 day course
Greg Lampert has been in practice since 1989. His interest in Chinese Medicine began after some life changing acupuncture treatment a few years earlier. At this point he studied holistic nutrition and immersed himself in Chinese medicine. Greg has been working in various roles at the college since its inception in 1993. He was involved in setting up the college’s first herbal and pre-prepared patent remedies course with John Hicks. He has a strong affinity with the energetics of foods and has co written a book called Chinese Dietary Wisdom. In Greg’s spare time he is generally somewhere near the kitchen.
Daverick Leggett is the author of Recipes for Self Healing and Helping Ourselves, both of which have become seminal works for practitioners, students and clients of Chinese Medicine. He is a frequent lecturer in nutrition at colleges throughout the UK. Daverick is also a Qigong teacher with thirty years experience. He lives in Devon where much of his time is dedicated to growing food and managing land for conservation and biodiversity.
Danny Blyth loves to integrate nutrition, qigong and yangsheng into his acupuncture and herbal medicine clinic. Danny has taught many aspects of Chinese Medicine at CICM since 2001, co-authored Chinese Dietary Wisdom (essentially the handouts and recipes of nutrition days that Greg and Danny have taught for many years), and is a level seven (fortitude master) teacher of practical tai chi chuan and qigong. His days off are spent chopping vegetables and wandering the Cotswold hills.
