The theory considers yin and yang and their clinical concepts, associations, imbalances, manifestations of these conditions, and rules of equilibrium. Yin and Yang influence the five phases of our lives. It introduces the terms blood, energy and body fluid and discusses various climatic pathogens that affect the body from the outside and their inward movement (and explains why we call certain states of humidity or wind diseases, etc.). The theory of the five elements is the most important part of this book.
The laws of energy balance explain the superficial and deep circulation of energy in the body. The meridian system is explained by its external and internal connection and uses organ clocks, organ clocks and five-element ratio. Eight further meridians and their application are also given.

Diagnosis and Treatment: All diagnostic methods are explained. It also includes needle and syringe sensations, needle techniques and all extraordinary therapies such as burning poisons, cupirovania, plum punctures, electrostimulation of needles and bleeding. More than 80 common diseases and symptoms are discussed and treatment is offered for the same symptom for different reasons. The history of each case and each treatment is illustrated by the location of the points used so that the reader does not have to look for them elsewhere.

The idea behind this book was to create a good book for the acupuncture practice at the bedside (patient).
