The Foundations of Chinese Medicine

Chinese medicine is huge in scope and requires years of study. However, the primary prescription for health is quite simple: abide by the cycles of nature and maintain peace within the body, mind, and spirit.

 In the Yellow Emperor’s Classic, the earliest surviving medical text written over 2300 years ago, Huang Di was told that in ancient times man lived a simple life in accord with nature, but “Nowadays people are not like this ... they adopt recklessness as usual behavior.” What would Huang Di think of today’s lifestyle? Perhaps, it is time to listen to the Yellow Emperor.
