Our Slow Diagnosis Method

Correct diagnosis is easy when we slow down

Many acupuncturists suffer from what herbal expert and mentor
Cara Frank calls the “herbal confidence crisis.”  

You know the feeling - you know a patient needs herbs, but anxiety hijacks your prefrontal cortex, you feel overwhelmed with doubt, and all your training goes out the window in one fell swoop. 

Anxious you’ll make the wrong decision and diagnose, prescribe, or dose the herbal formula incorrectly, you shy away from using herbs entirely!

Don’t let the fear of formula failure stop you any longer!

The truth is, you are already highly trained in Chinese herbal medicine - a modality that offers incredible results for patients and practice success. 

But you don’t have a trusted method to diagnose and formulate herbs with confidence

Until Now.

Getting a clear diagnosis starts by slowing down to speed up. Cara calls this process Slow Diagnosis. It starts by asking, how do we know what we know? For sure? It’s easier than you think. 

This program gives you a simple method to deconstruct tricky cases to their core components - whether you practice in-office or via telehealth.

    “Cara is an amazing teacher and practitioner. The fact that she is now available to teach online is a huge bonus to the acupuncture and herbs community. Her practical insights into how to navigate both treating patients and working in the current climate are invaluable and I look forward to continuing to work with her in her mentorship program. My knowledge of herbs has grown exponentially since beginning classes with Cara and my comfort in diagnosing and recommending herbs to patients has as well.”

    “Cara is an exceptional herbalist, a fantastic teacher, and a powerful businesswoman! She generously shares her knowledge and wisdom on creating and modifying herbal formulas to help acupuncturists have a greater impact on their patients. I highly recommend her classes if you’re looking to level up your practice with custom herbal formulas.”

    Chinese Herbalist, Educator

  • Cara Frank

    "Cara taught me a logical and defendable way to approach diagnosis and the prescribing of Chinese herbs. She taught me how to zero in on the patient's pattern using my foundation: 8 parameters, Qi and Blood, zang-fu, channels, 4 levels, 3 burners, etc. She taught me to unpack the formulas in the same way. The approach Cara takes with herbs is holistic. I learned to see both sides of the equation: patient=specific formula. The patients' pattern is represented in a specific formula; the formula represents a specific patient. I am grateful to Cara for her ability to translate her profound expertise to any student fortunate enough to be under her guidance. "”
