Famous sayings in the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine:

  • “One who does not know ‘ Yi (I-Ching) ‘ cannot be said to be a great doctor”   – by Sun Simiao (a doctor and herbalist in Sui and Tang dynasty) and Zhang Zhong Jing (a doctor in Han dynasty);   不知易,便不足以为大医也;
  • The ordinary doctor treats a condition after it happens, the best doctor treats a condition before it happens;   上医治未病,下医治已病;
  • The balancing of the YIN and YANG of our internal body can be done regardless of the expense of the material, as long as we follow the nature, follow the season thus touch the root, the result will be wonderfully effective.     体内阴阳平衡不分药食的贵贱,只要顺应自然,以时用药,对症就显神效!
