the value of this process, first you
will have to understand the practice of
Pulse Reading. It is akin to a
nurse or doctor testing your heart rate
on your wrist with their own pointer
finger but to a much higher degree.
There are 6 pulses on each wrist – 3 are
superficial and 3 are deep for a total
of 12. Each ‘pulse point’ denotes an
organ and runs through the body on a
meridian. It is on this pulse point
that Victor can determine several
things; the potency and quality of a
herb, how long it will be active, which
meridian/organ it is directed to, which
flavor (bitter, acrid, etc.), whether it
is a yang, double yang, yin, triple yin,
etc. (in other words, is it cool, cold,
warm, hot or neutral). When 2 or more
herbs are combined their properties
affect each other. Only an herbalist
will know which herb can be combined
with another and HOW they will affect
each other. You may purchase a
particular blend of herbs off of a shelf
somewhere and it may have a combination
of, let’s say, 12 herbs. If a

one that is too hot. Therefore, a good
herbalist will add herbs to formulate a
balanced blend. An unbalanced blend
will have side effects! Victor’s blends
DO NOT have side effects but can have
natural healing indications.
