Essential Texts in Chinese Medicine is a selection of the key texts on Chinese medicine, taken from the Huangdi Neijing (the Yellow Emperor’s Medical Classic), provides the passage vital for students and practitioners to understand and work with in their practice today.
This book is a new translation, supported by a commentary that explains the meaning and importance of the lines and their core relevance to modern practice.
Ming doctor and scholar Li Zhongzi’s selection is taken as basis, and additional texts from the Huangdi Neijing on topics relevant for modern practitioners, such as the spirit in treatment, a resonance with nature, the art of needling, and the Five Elemental body and personality types, are included.
