Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott Bsc, LicAc, BAc, DipAc(China), DipCHM, MBAcC, MABP, LCH, MCH, PCH, Cert.ECBS, RSAPH

Jonathan grew up on a farm in Sussex - Jersey cows, Landrace and Wessex pigs, chickens, geese and a horse. So his earliest memory of farming is (apparently aged 3) of steering the tractor while his father and other workers loaded hay onto the trailer behind it. His feet didn't reach the clutch but he could reach the hand-throttle, with very satisfactory results but unexpected repercussions: his next job was spreading cow-pats with a fork.

After that he began to grow up and eventually received his BSc in Electrical Engineering from Edinburgh University before qualifying as a Chartered Accountant.

He trained in London with Mary Austin (then a very prominent acupuncturist and homeopath), at the College of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (LicAc), the British College of Acupuncture (BAc), and the College of Chinese Medicine Nanjing in China (DipAc). 

Then he studied homoeopathy at the College of Homeopathy (LCH, MCH) and the Dynamis School for Advanced Homoeopathic Studies (PCH). He also trained at the Northern College of Acupuncture, (DipCHM) and at European College of Bowen Studies (CertECBS).

He has also trained in and practised various other therapies including Bowen Technique, Remedial Massage, Reflexology, and Shiatsu... and continues to attend courses on a range of therapies and techniques.

In recent years he has incorporated Japanese Matsumoto-style acupuncture into his practice with great results. This, together with Unified Acupuncture theory has enabled him to treat many problems he had difficulty with before.

'Chinese Medicine in English' book series

He is author of the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series of books which are read by people round the world and available in softback or on Kindle, including Kindle Unlimited. See below to obtain these books.

Founder Member of SAPH

Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott was a founder member of the Scottish Association for Professional Homeopaths (RSAPH) which, like the Society of Homeopaths, (of which he was formerly a member) has strict criteria and an onerous process for registration, requiring evidence of experience, continuing professional development, and a realistic ability to practise. Jonathan is currently Chair of the Association.

Many people consult Jonathan for homoeopathic treatment. He finds that a knowledge of Chinese medicine enormously enhances his understanding of homeopathic medicine, and vice versa.

Good nutrition is vital for health. Jonathan lectured on this for 25 years, explaining food not only from its scientific basis but from the energetic perspective derived from Chinese medicine.

Using the QXC1 - see below - has often helped to identify nutritional (and many other) problems.

QCX1 Food and Reaction Testing

Since 2000 Jonathan has helped many people understand their health from a completely different perspective using a non-invasive test that reveals an enormous amount of health information. Read more about this under QXC1.

Why Jonathan used SBI for this site

Read Jonathan's SBI Review for why he chose Solo Built It! for this site. After about 10 years heavy use, Jonathan's original site needed a face-lift and he spent many hours comparing different organisations.

They all made big promises for how successful his new site would be if built with them.

But only one organisation really stood out - SBI.

They had the statistics to prove their success, and hundreds of detailed and positive, indeed glowing stories from people who, often with no experience, had built successful sites with them.

Anyway, if you think you might like to build a business-like site - that will earn you money, not moonshine! - join SBI.


Until 2007 Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott represented Age Concern Scotland on Foodaware, the Consumers' Food Group, which was set up to coordinate the broad UK consumer movement's work on food safety, nutrition and standards.

Its mission was to give UK consumers a strong voice on food policy by bringing together the organisations that represent them.

It also consulted and supported the UK consumer representatives on food related committees, and furthered the public understanding of science.

Pilot Studies with the Faculty of Medicine, Edinburgh University

From 2004 - 2007 he assisted Edinburgh University Faculty of Medicine in pilot modules for third and fourth year medical students who were interested in observing complementary medicine in action.


Jonathan has worked in Edinburgh since 1983 before which he had a large practice in London. He is married with two adult children.

Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott Books

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)

('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)

Request! Please!

If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.

You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.

And if you think it was terrible?

Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)

Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.

Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.

Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress

Yin Deficiency - Burnout and Exhaustion

Yang Deficiency - Get Your Fire Burning Again!

Yuck! Phlegm! How to Clear Your Phlegm ...

Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine

Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine! See Reviews.

Seven Reviews so far for Yuck Phlegm. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
