A famous Chinese saying in the Traditional Chinese Medical field by both Sun Simiao (a doctor and herbalist of the Sui and Tang dynasty) and Zhang Zhong Jing (a doctor in Han dynasty) says that one who does not know “Yi (I-Ching)” cannot be said to be a great doctor.
In contemporary history, China has had to deal with many political-economic influences as a result of invasion and war which damaged or destroyed much of the effective part of the traditional heritage that had been accumulated for over five thousand years. Following the vision of Chairman Mao Ze Dong to build up the new China with an effort to preserve and restore its Traditional Chinese medicine, the present government has a long way to go. ..So within the academic setting, education is just a foundation. If one wants to attain Chinese medical excellence, one must follow good traditional grand masters who are recipients of centuries of knowledge.
