Foreword
Many people are now looking for help from traditional Chinese medicine. They are,
for example, patients of chronic diseases which have
been diagnosed as to be without any radical cure;
patients whose diseases have been diagnosed to be
extremely serious and who hope to
find another way out in traditional
Chinese medicine; patients who do
not want to undergo surgical
operations and wish to be subjected to some conservative
treatment; and patients who are convalescing in hospital after
surgical operation or after being hospitalized and who choose
traditional Chinese medicine as auxiliary treatment or for
health-care purposes. There are other people, who are of the
opinion that traditional Chinese medicines can be used for regulation of their bodies
and they hope to take herbal drugs for routine health care so as to improve their
individual constitutions.
This book is designed not only to make you get in the easiest way possible a concise
and systematic knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine but also to recommend to
you ready-made traditional Chinese medicines which are easily available. On the
basis of these ready-made Chinese medicines a number of health-care programs have
been devised for
your benefit.
In
these
programs
diseases are classified
according to the
nomenclature used in
Western medicine
so as to make the
programs easier to
consult for those
people who are
not acquainted with
traditional
Chinese medicine.
This book is not
vivid in color, rich and magnificent in both pictures and
language. In the book there are quite a number of
classical pictures of immense academic value pertaining
to the realm of traditional Chinese medicine, including a
set of fourteen exquisite pictorial illustrations of
channels and collaterals of the human meridian system.
This book is not only suitable for collection by common
readers, but also worthy of reading by people of the
medical profession.

only practical but also

Origin of TCM
In the course of development of human civilization there have
appeared four traditional medical systems. Apart from the
traditional Chinese medicine, there were Egyptian, Roman, and Indian medical
systems. However, the latter three traditional medical systems gradually declined until
they became extinct, with only individual prescriptions having survived by being
scattered and preserved among the populations.
The method of thinking is of paramount importance as the basis and norm of
behaviour in the development of every field of natural science. So, TCM has a close
relationship with Chinese classical philosophy.
The
underlying
fundamental
ideological thesis of
Chinese
classical
philosophy is a system
of
philosophical
theoretical
thinking
having a scheme of
four dimensions, which
are "the way of
heaven", "the way of
earth", "the human
way" and "the change
of seasons". In other
words,
Chinese
classical
philosophy
considers
the
principles governing
the changes in the
universe
and
the
heavenly bodies, the
rules that underlie
geophysics and the
evolution of creatures:
animals and plants, and
the laws governing the
changes in human
societies to be one
organic totality with its components mutually influencing and constraining each other,
with revelations of changes in matters and things that go on with the passage of time
as the basis for investigations.
Therefore, Chinese classical philosophy is a mode of thinking by "synthetic analysis".
In classical Chinese philosophy, the scientific proposition of "interactions between
man and nature" was put forward on the foundation of this basic ideology.
Traditional Chinese medical practitioners hold the view that the human body is an
organic whole, that a local change which is a disorder can affect the entire body while
a pathological change in the whole body can be reflected as a local phenomenon, and
that, therefore, although the pathological essence of the change that is involved in the
disease is hidden inside there must be a certain symptom or more than one symptom
reflected outside.
In her medical practice of several thousand years, China has summed up her clinical
experience, formed a complete theoretical system of medicine and,by virtue of its
safety and efficacy, has made important contributions to the procreation and thriving
of the Chinese people and has shown its tremendous vitality at the same time.

Interpretation of Terms of TCM

Yin and Yang


1. The theory of Yin and Yang in traditional Chinese medicine is the product of
combination of the ancient Chinese dialectical method of thinking and the rich
experience gained in traditional medical work. Yin and Yang constitute not only an
important component part of the basic theory of traditional Chinese medicine but also
an
instrument
for
summing up its clinical
experience. This means
that the view on unity of
opposites as shown in the
relation between Yin and
Yang and also about
decline and growth and
about
mutual
transformation
between
the opposites Yin and
Yang was
used
to
explicate the relation
between man and nature
and to generalize a series
of questions in the field of
medicine.
2. The implications of Yin
and Yang:
Yang(Masculine)---pushing into motion, playing the leading role, and being
immovable in determination. In traditional Chinese medicine, Yangrepresents the
functional activities of organs, the external defense, and the firm internal protection of
Yin essence.
Yin(Feminine) ---keeping to the faith, tending to agree and accept, and being flexible
and compliant. In traditional Chinese medicine, Yin represents the conservation and
storage of material substances, the source of the vital energy of Yang.
For example, in the distinction between the two sexes, the male is Yang and the
female is Yin.

Description of symptoms
1.Yang deficiency:This term refers to
inadequacy of vital energy. Clinical
manifestations are: hands and feet lacking
warmth , body prone to sweat on all
occasions, stool being very wet and shapeless, urine being colorless, lips being light in
5

color, and mouth feeling flat and insipid.


2.Yin deficiency: This term refers to inadequacy of body fluids. Clinical
manifestations are: Feeling the two palms and two
soles hot in the centers, having subjective
consciousness of some annoying heat in the
bosom, suffering a hectic fever in the early
afternoon, going about constantly with reddened
lips and feeling the mouth dry, and haunted by the
excretion of dry and hardened stool.

Nomenclature
1.Pulmonary Yin--- fluid of the lungs, produced by
chemical combination of the essence of water and
grain with renal fluid.This pulmonary Yin is
complementary to what is called the pulmonary qi,
which is its opposite and might well be called
pulmonary Yang as it represents vital energy.
2.Kidney Yin-also called renal fluid or genuine
fluid, is no other than the fluid of the renal organ
(including the essence of life, which the renal
organ contains). It is called kidney Yin as it is
counterposed to kidney Yang, the vital energy, and
serves as the material basis on which kidney Yang
performs its functional activities. Kidney Yin hasthe effect of nourishing and
moistening various viscera and hollow organs of the human body.

The term qi
1. Denotes minute particles of material, rich in
nutrition and circulating around the body, e.g. the qi
of water and grain.
2. Denotes the active power of viscera, e.g. the qi of
the five internal organs.
In clinical work, when the term qi is used, it most
probably denotes a symptom or symptoms of some
disorder of the viscera, e.g. The qi of the liver
offends the stomach.

Five internal organs(Zang) and six


hollow organs(Fu)
Traditional Chinese medicine holds the view that
in the human body there are five substantial Zang
organs (Zang is dark in color), each of which
corresponds to a Fu organ, which is an internally
hollow organ (Fu is light in color) and is
connected with other Fu organs through channels
and collaterals, thus forming two distinct zang and
Fu systems, differing widely from the theory of
Western anatomy so far as functions are
concerned.
1.The term five internal organs usually denotes heart, liver, spleen, lungs and kidneys
-Heart (---: heart storing spirit and governing blood and vessels;
-Lung
Lung---: lung governing qi,storing inferior spirit; lung connecting all vessels;
Liver
Liver--: liver controlling conveyance and dispersion;
liver governing ascending and dredging;
Spleen
Spleen-- :spleen governing movement
and transformation;
spleen being acquired foundation;
spleen governing ascending clear;
spleen controlling blood;
spleen governing limbs;
spleen governing muscles;
-Kidney
Kidney---: kidney governing storage;
kidney governing reproduction;
kidney governing water metabolism;
kidney governing bones;
2. The term hollow organ generally denotes an
organ in the abdomen which is hollow inside
and has a cavity, performing the function of
receiving,
storing,
transporting
and
transforming water and grain. The six hollow
organs comprise: gallbladder, stomach, bowels,
intestines, (urinary) bladder and the three
visceral cavities (which house the internal
organs). The three visceral cavities are
passages for the circulation of water and grain
and vital energy.
7

Note
Note: The terms spleen (i.e. the explanation of the term) and three visceral cavities are
unique and specific to traditional Chinese medicine in its theory of the five internal
organs and the six internal hollow organs.

Meridians and collaterals:


The main passages of the network are the principal channels, which connect different
parts of the body and through which vital energy circulates, regulating bodily
functions. The branches that diverge from the principal channels and link them with
each other, forming a network throughout the body, are called collateral channels.This
network constitutes the entire system of passages for circulating vital energy
throughout the body, connecting the visceral organs and the limbs and joints of the
body, providing communication all over the body, and regulating all bodily functions.

Theory of the Five Elements

The theory of the five elements is one of the basic theories inherited by traditional
Chinese medicine from ancient natural philosophy. It concerns the composition and
evolution of the universe.
The five elements are: wood (, fire, earth
, metal and water. They are used
in traditional Chinese medicine to expound the
correspondence between man and the universe, and
to delineate in particular the physiological and
pathological relationships between the various
internal organs of the human body.
For the latter purpose, traditional Chinese medicine
classifies the internal organs according to the
properties of the five elements either by analogy or
by deduction. To be specific, the five organs i.e.
Liver(, heart, spleen, lung and kidney are considered
to be equivalent to wood, fire, earth, metal and water respectively. However, this
linkage of the internal organs to the five elements is not a matter of
simple analogy. It has profound implications.
*Whatever pertains to wood has the property of being able to grow,
become plentiful and extend with ease in different directions;
*Whatever pertains to fire has the property of warming, heating and
leaping up; *Whatever pertains to earth has the property of
8

implementing conveyance, receipt and acceptance, and production and changes of


things;
*Whatever pertains to metal has the property of cleaning, cutting down and
contracting;
*Whatever pertains to water has the property of cooling, moistening and moving
downward. Moreover, the five elements are related to each other in an intricate
manner, as is shown below.
Relationships between the five elements:
1. by generation or promotion,, :
The five elements generate (i.e. produce) or promote one
another in the order of wood, fire, earth, metal, water, and
wood again.
2. by restriction or subjugation:
The five elements restrict or subjugate one another in the
order of water, fire, metal, wood, earth, and water again.
The theory of the five elements can be used in traditional
Chinese medicine not only for theoretical reasoning and
explication but also for practical guidance in clinical work.
Illustrations of diagnoses made by using the theory of the five elements:
Wood fire torturing metal: This expresses a pathological change which consists
in that excessive liver fire consumes lung fluid, causing dry cough and chest pain
or even hemoptysis accompanied by irritability, bitterness in the mouth, and
blood-shot eyes.
Earth failing to control water: This expresses a pathological change which
consists in that a weak spleen, being unable to control the water flow, may lead to
edema or retained fluid.
Exuberant wood subjugating earth:
This expresses a pathological change
involving disharmony between the liver and the spleen and stomach, in which
hyperactivity of the former (liver) is primary, while insufficiency of the latter
(spleen and stomach) is secondary.
Fire failing to generate earth:
This expresses a pathological change in which
fire of the life gate (i.e. kidney yang) is insufficient to warm the spleen and
stomach, bringing on such symptoms as diarrhea, indigestion, intolerance of cold,
and edema.
Thus it can be seen that application of the theory of the five elements in traditional
Chinese medicine is chiefly for analysis of and research in the mutual relationships of
the viscera, the channels and collaterals of the human meridian system, for study of
the various physiological functions of the human body, and for clarification of their
effects and influences on each other in pathological conditions.

Salivary fluids :
This is the combination name of saliva and body fluids. It means the fluid in the
9

human body, which is produced by chemical transformation from the minute particles
of dietary water and grain.

Causes of illness:
In ancient times the causes of illness were
divided
into
three
classes,
namely
endogenous,
exogenous
and
non-endo-non-exogenous factors.

1.Endogenous factors:This denotes certain


pathogenic factors which arise inside the
human body and cause illness, chiefly the
condition of rise and fall of a persons
healthiness,as is implied in the common saying
that If healthiness exists inside, evils cannot
offend.(Whatever is harmful to the human
body is called in traditional Chinese medicine
by the generalizing term evil,that is pathogen)
The term healthiness comprises in its meaning
both the physical constitution, the mental state and resistance to illness.
2.Exogenous factors
factors:This denotes the
fact of being affected by certain
pathogenic factors in the external world
(i.e. nature). Traditional Chinese medical
scholars call these pathogenic factors by
the term external evils as well. Traditional
Chinese medicine borrowed the names of
natural phenomena, such as wind, cold,
summer, damp, dry, hot (fire)and their
characteristics to generalize the causes of
all diseases resulting from interference in
the human body by external factors and
also for use in the description of causes
and symptoms of various diseases, as
shown below:
Wind
Wind: for showing that the symptom of a
disease is migratory in its place of
occurrence and changeable in form, like
wind.
Cold
Cold: for describing symptoms of deterioration of a function, e.g. running a fever,
10

having a painful joint, or having abdominal


pain or diarrhea.
Fire(s)
Fire(s): for describing symptoms which are
manifestations of hyperfunctioning of some
organ(s) in the process of pathological
variations and may be further divided into
two categories, i.e. substantial fires and
deficiency fires.
Substantial fires are due mostly to
rampancy of disease evils and in the majority of cases are manifested as high fevers,
heavy sweating, and propensity to fly into a temper.
Deficiency fires are due mostly to deficits in body fluids and are found principally in
chronic wasting diseases, manifesting themselves in the majority of cases as feeling
worried unnecessarily and lying in bed
sleepless, or having seminal emissions
at night, often with dreams.
Damp
Damp: for describing obstacles to the
performance of the function of
transport and transformation of food in
the body, often seen as joint pain,
muscular pain, poor appetite or a
sensation of suppression in the chest.
Dry
Dry: for indicating a person being
affected by dryness and suffering loss
of salivary fluids in such a way that
this loss is transformed into heat and
fire. The symptoms are seen in the
majority of cases as red eyes, swollen
gums, sore throat or dry coughs.
3. Non-endo-non-exogenous factors
factors:
This term denotes a category of illness
the causes of which are obvious by
themselves consisting chiefly in
hunger or surfeit, the persons house or
room being not sanitary, an injury or wound resulting from a fall or from a beating, or
having been bitten by an insect or an animal.

Endogenous evils( pathogen):


This term denotes pathogenic factors, such as phlegm stasis and blood stasis in the
body, posterior or secondary to some disease.
1. Phlegm
Phlegm:This term denotes the pathological product secreted by the respiratory tract
and includes in its scope the mucous substances accumulated in the tissues of certain
11

organs which have undergone pathological changes. Such mucous substances, which
are transformed from salivary fluids, impede the normal process of air formation in and
passage through the viscera and hollow
organs.
2.Blood stasis
stasis: This term denotes the
symptom of blood becoming stagnant in
flow and staying at a certain place in the
body, which will lead to some
substantial injury done to a part of the
network of passages or to the function
performance of certain viscera. It may
combine with other evils (e.g. cold and
phlegm) to give more obstinate
pathological manifestations.
3. Toxicity
Toxicity:According to the theory of
traditional Chinese medicine, toxicity
falls into a number of types, which are,
for example:
a. Internal toxicity:This term denotes
noxious heat which seeps from inside.
b. Noxious dampness:This term refers to
the fact that dampness may turn into toxicity after being pent up in the body for a long
time.
c.Damp heat:This term is used to mean that owing to the fact that the spleen of the
human body may not be healthy enough to transport well, dampness arises inside or, as
a result of the body staying at a damp place for too long, external evils invade into it
and, having been pent up and lying dormant in it for quite a time, produce heat.. The
treatment should center on reducing fever and facilitating increase of moisture. The
concrete therapeutic method to be adopted varies with the place of the body where the
affliction occurs.

Doctor Wang
Wangs Answers
Why is yin vs. yang so important in TCM?
Answer: To people who are familiar with Western
medicine, traditional Chinese medicine is quite
abstract.
Look at this picture.
Isnt the Solar
system like a gigantic revolving wheel? Arent all
the planets revolving around the Sun and turning
simultaneously each on its own axis?
Again, lets take a look at our Earth. Its very hot
on earth in summer. But, if you fetch a bucket of
water from a well, youll find that the water of the well is quite cool. In winter it is
very cold on earth. The water in the well may have frozen, but miners working in a
coal mine feel very hot. In spring, plants grow and blossom, but in autumn, trees
generally shed leaves. Dont such phenomena of Nature seem to show as if there
were two kinds of energy on earth which are circulating and transforming into each
other?
I invited you to observe
the universe and the
earth not for the purpose
of inducing you to learn
astronomy, but in order
to show you that since
the circulatory motions
within the human body
are invisible to the naked
human eye traditional
Chinese medicine can
only resort to analogy
with the universe to
enable you to conceive
and comprehend the
internal workings of the
human body.
By observation of the
great Nature, ancient
Chinese came to realize that man, being a part of Nature, must obey the laws of
Nature, and so they put forward the view of correspondence between human beings
and the natural environment, of which the simplest
example is that a person generally enjoys good health if
he/she gets up to work when the sun rises and stops working
to rest when the sun sets.
By making such observations, ancient
Chinese people came to understand
that man is a product of Nature and
there are circulatory motions within
the human body akin to those of the
heavenly bodies in the universe; that
such motions require energy, which is
13

of two types: yin and yang according to the direction of flow of the energy and that
the human body tends to be in good health if the two types of energy which transform
into each other in circulatory motions are equivalent and that the human body will
suffer from various diseases if such equivalence is lacking.

What after all is qi of traditional Chinese medicine?


Answer: Lets again make observations of the
universe.
Air is invisible, but dont you feel its
power whenever there is a typhoon raging? From
observations, ancient Chinese realized that in air there
must be matter which carries energy. They came to
the conclusion that since man depends on food, water
and inhaled air for the energy required by the human
body the energy is produced by all the three of them.
This energy is what traditional Chinese medicine calls qi and blood. The circulatory
motions within the human body for the maintenance of equivalence between yin and
yang need to depend not only on the energy of the tangible blood for propulsion but
also on the invisible energy qi, which may also be represented as the functional
activities of viscera such as the kidneys, expressed traditionally as the kidney qi.
The term qi denotes additionally mans vital energy, which is the life-power.

Does the human meridian system, which consists of channels and


collaterals, really exist?
Answer: Dont astronomers tell you that all
the planets in the sky have their respective
orbits of motion? However, if you confine
your range of observation to a small space
and limit your objects of observation to only
one planet for a short length of time, can you
see its orbit?
In the view of traditional
Chinese
medicine,
a
human being is a small
universe. The existence of
the
human
meridian
system with its channels
and
collaterals
was
discovered by incessant observations of an
entire human being and by summing up the
results of such observations. The meridian
system in the human body is no other than an
14

intangible system of definite and interconnected passages through which qi is


transmitted. It certainly cannot be seen by means of dissecting a cadaver, because in
that way anatomy would take as its object of study only a lifeless body of flesh. The
theory of the human meridian system has been demonstrated to be correct in the
course of medical practice of thousands of years. The system of deep-breathing
exercises, acupuncture and moxibustion, and the traditional Chinese medical massage
were all developed in accordance with the theory of the human meridian system.

Why do you suggest that we take Inwarmer in the forenoon and


Toniyin in the evening?
Answer: Traditional Chinese medical scholars discovered thousands of years ago
that there exist close relationships between man and time and between man and the
seasons
Early in the morning, when the sun rises, the
body is ready to perform functional activities.
As Inwarmer has the effect of making warmth
take ascendancy in the body, it can strengthen
the spleen and warm the stomach, encouraging
more strenuous performance of functional
activities if it is taken in the forenoon, whereas
in the evening, when the sun sets, the power to
perform functional activities within the human
body subsides, it will be better for a person to
take Toniyin because Toniyin has the principal
effect of replenishing body fluids and so will moisten the throat, clear the body of
dryness and heat, conducing to a good rest.
Do you know why so many healthy people hurry
to the lavatory early in the morning to make stool?
Traditional Chinese medicine discovered that
there are l2 channels in this meridian system and
that each of these channels, i.e. meridians, has its
primary time of the day for passage. As 5-7
oclock in the morning is the time at which the
flow of vital energy of the body enters the
big-intestine meridian, a great number of people
feel the urge to defecate. Incidentally, why do
some people speak of the need to adjust the time
difference? Thats because passage of energy
through each channel is connected with the time
of the day. When a person arrives at a new
place, he/she instinctively feels a need to make
15

some adjustment of his/her daily habits in order to adapt to the change in the body of
the primary time for passage through each of the channels, or meridians.

How is it that practitioners of TCM can assess a patients internal


health condition by inferring from his/her external characteristics?
Answer:
Lets take
as an example the
simple
case
of
assessing the internal
condition
of
a
watermelon when you
want to buy one from among a great
multitude of watermelons at a stall in the
market. In China a stallholder usually
offers customers his gratuitous service and
so you will have a good choice made for
you.
A person who has engaged in
planting or selling watermelons all his life
knows how to make the best choice simply by relying on his experience. Similarly,
a medical practitioner can assess a patients internal condition visually by relying on
his/her personal experience, in addition to using his/her knowledge of traditional
Chinese medicine, which is indispensable even in this case for no other reason than
that traditional Chinese medicine is a natural science with a long history of
development through incessant observation and practice.

Why should herbal medicines be classified as having the hot, cool,


etc. property respectively?
Answer: Traditional Chinese medicine evaluates a certain
plant or mineral on the basis of its effect on the human
body. Traditional Chinese medicine describes these drugs,
including our daily foods, in the following respects;
(1) Drug property: There are hot, warm, even, cool,
and cold drugs. For example, the ginger we eat
is hot, while mutton is warm.
As a further
example, if a person has got herpes simplex, which usually occurs as a
concomitant of fever, it is said that he/she is afflicted by a heat toxin and that
a cool drug is needed to clear the body of the heat toxin. If that person
should eat some roasted dish, he/she might find on the next day that his/her

16

illness became more serious.


Therefore, the
cooking method can change the property of a food.
Many people like to eat fruits or even cooked
dishes taken direct from the refrigerator. This
habit might increase the pathogenic cold in the
stomach, and we have the right to say that
refrigeration changes the property of a cooked dish.
(2) Drug tastes: They include the bitter, sweet, sour, salty, pungent and bland
tastes.
(3) Meridian tropism:
This
means classification of
drugs according to the
meridian(s) on which their
therapeutic
action
is
manifested, e.g. Radix
Platycodi and Radix Asteris
are grouped under the lung
meridian because of their
antitussive effect in cases
of lung diseases.
Lets
take as another example a
woman who does not
secrete enough milk to feed
her newborn baby.
In
order to solve the problem, she need only take the herbal medicine seed of
cowherb (Vaccaria segetalis), which acts on the meridians of liver and
stomach, which are closely connected with the breasts.
This herbal
medicine is used as a galactagogue. The woman will have her lactation
increased by adding an appropriate amount of it to her meat or fish soup.
(4) Directions, or rather trends, of drug actions: There are four directions, or
trends, of drug actions. They are: ascending, descending, floating and
sinking. The ascending and floating drugs have an upward and outward
effect, and they are used for activating
vitality, inducing sweating and dispelling
cold, while the descending and sinking drugs,
which have a downward and inward effect,
are used for achieving tranquilization,
causing contraction, relieving cough,
arresting emesis, and promoting diuresis or
purgation. For example, a man has become impotent. According to
traditional Chinese medicine, if he wants to improve his potency he should

17

take an ascending drug. This is why most


of the ingredients of Sanlida are from
warm to hot, which evidently is intended
to
accomplish
the
purpose
of
ascending.
However,
longtime
administration of Sanlida might lead to
excess heat in the body. As the human
body needs harmony between ascending
and descending, Inwarmer should be
taken at the same time as Sanlida,
because it is a herbal medicine for
treating spleen and stomach diseases in a harmonious manner. Since
Inwarmer combines warmth with descending, its combined use with Sanlida
will make it possible for Sanlida to be used continually for a long period of
time.

What is the dialectical method of diagnosis and treatment used in


TCM?
When a patient comes, the traditional Chinese
medical practitioner, basing his/her work on the
data collected, makes analysis and synthesis to
discern the cause and nature of the disease,
which is generally at a certain place of the body
or, instead, may be a systemic disease,
elucidates the relationship between the
pathogenic evil and the patients healthiness,
and through generalization comes to the
diagnosis.
In the case of postpartum abdominal pain, for
example, the practitioner may advise the patient
that Chinese angelica, mutton and ginger be
boiled together to make a soup for her to eat, and it will happen most probably that
her illness will be cured. Why? Because the woman has lost too much blood. She
needs to have the vital energy of her liver replenished. In the circulatory motions
within the human body the meridian of the liver conduces upward. When the vital
energy in the liver meridian does not flow upward but tends downward, the symptom
shown is abdominal pain. Chinese angelica can warm and tonify liver blood, mutton
can warm and tonify vital energy in the liver, and ginger can dispel pathogenic cold in
the body. When the blood of the liver has been nourished and tonified together with
the vital energy, the hepatic vital energy will become so strong as to ascend with
considerable force, thereby causing the disease to disappear.
18

In traditional Chinese medicine, the


motion of vital energy in the spleen
and stomach--- internal organs which
are in the middle part of the human
body--- is considered to be circular in
form and taken to be the shaft.
For a similar reason, the circular
motion of vital energy in outer parts
of the body which comprise lungs,
liver, heart and kidneys are likened to
the wheel.
The woman patient
mentioned above who takes dishes of mutton soup to have her lactation increased is,
by analogy, making the wheel revolve with the help of an external force
Thus, the way by which traditional Chinese medicine treats diseases is quite simple.
It may be generalized as to be of three types:
(1) Driving the shaft so as to bring into rotation the wheel
(2) Turning the wheel so as to bring into rotation the shaft
(3) Turning the shaft and the wheel simultaneously.

Why do traditional Chinese medical practitioners speak so often of


regulating?
In traditional Chinese medicine, treatment consists
of three-tenths in therapeutic attention and
seven-tenths in resting and nourishment. Resting
and nourishment is no less than regulating. The
essence of the method of treatment is to alleviate
the symptoms at the onset of the illness and to
tackle and eradicate the root cause of it when the
patients condition becomes stabilized, which
means that the regulating method is used at a later
time for the purpose of restoring proper functioning
to the internal organs.

Why does TCM emphasize regulating spleen and stomach?


The clump of nerves of every organ leads to the stomach, which means that
a person depends on food and its digestion and absorption for the nourishment of the
entire body. Traditional Chinese medicine says that spleen and stomach can produce
vitality, which is fundamentally the same as saying that they give rise to the persons
life power. Since the stomach is in the middle of the human body, traditional
Chinese medicine speaks figuratively of the vitality produced by it as vitality in the
form of a shaft and indicates explicitly that if that shaft revolves with great force it
can bring into rotation the wheel, by which is meant figuratively the whole body of
19

the human being. Therefore, life power will


abound when there is sufficient vitality. No
doubt, if the medicine and the supplemented
nourishment cannot be absorbed by the body via
the stomach, life will come to an end
Therefore, the fundamental principle of
traditional Chinese medicine is striving for the
preservation of vitality. When faced with a
doubtful, , tough clinical problem, the first
therapeutic method that comes to the
practitioners mind is naturally based on
regulating spleen and stomach so that the feeble
patient might have more vitality produced,
which means to have more life power restored to
him/her.

Why does TCM emphasize replenishing the body fluids and


nourishing the kidneys?
The meaning of the word kidney in
traditional Chinese medicine transcends by
far in scope that of the kidney as a visceral
structure in modern medicine. In traditional
Chinese medicine the kidney is given the title
of "prenatal root source of the human body".
The so-called root source denotes the
foundation of life.
The kidneys are responsible for storing the
essence of life and transforming corpuscular
material. The five internal organs (heart, liver,
spleen, lungs, and also the kidneys) all
depend on the kidneys for congenial warmth.
Adequacy of the essence of life in the
kidneys and the glow of vitality of the
kidneys are the basic guarantee of a person's
long life, perennial youthful looks and unfading appearance.
If the warming power of the kidneys is not adequate for providing congenial warmth
to the whole figure, then the body feels chilly, the limbs feel cold and the complexion
is pallid. If there is not enough essence of life in the kidneys to nourish the whole
body, then hair, both fine and gross, falls off, teeth shake, and the complexion withers
20

early. If there is a deficiency of essential body


fluids in the kidneys, an internal heat induced
by that deficiency flares up inside the body and
the cheeks are seen to become abnormally red
because of the hectic fever. If the
deficiency-induced heat dies down, then a
water-induced cold becomes rampant inside
and the complexion is seen to be darkish. An
ample supply of the essence of life in the
kidneys is the cause of hair being lustrous,
while a deficiency of vital energy in the
kidneys entails albescence of hair, both fine and
gross, and its shedding.

What is the main effect of each of


the products supplied by the SANLIDA Company?
I think you have already learned something of traditional Chinese medicine. So, Ill
explain to you the effects of these products from a TCM professional angle.
Sanlida
Sanlida: It can activate blood and unblock collaterals in the human meridian system.
It is warm. It has an ascending trend in the human body.
Aegiseme
Aegiseme: It performs the function of promoting movement of vital energy. It is
warm and ascending, but has also ingredients that are cool and descending.
It activates blood and unblocks collaterals. It eliminates stagnant blood
and expels superfluous water out of the body, and so can relieve swelling.
Inwarmer
Inwarmer: It can warm and tonify vital energy. It can reinforce the functional
activities of spleen and stomach.
It has more ingredients that are
ascending than descending.
Vital energy, which it warms, is what is
considered by traditional Chinese medicine as the motive force of all human
activities.
Gui Pills
Pills: It tonifies the blood of heart and liver; it replenishes the vital energy of
spleen and stomach. It favors both yin and yang, it has ingredients that
have the ascending trend and also those that have the descending trend.
Toniyin
Toniyin: It fosters the body fluids and replenishes the vital energy of spleen and
stomach. It combines the ascending and the descending trends. (Note:
There are in it more ingredients that have the descending trend than those
that have an ascending one.)..
Holisticare
olisticare: It makes a wholesale improvement of vitality.
Kilimend
Kilimend: It increases the body fluids in a big way and also promotes the functional
activities.
Salubry
Salubry: It promotes the functions of digestion, absorption and chemical
transformation by spleen and stomach.
21

Safbrain
Safbrain: It serves as the scavenger of blood vessels.
Ilextensor
Ilextensor: It lowers the blood pressure, increases the body fluids and has the cooling
and descending effects.
Gastility
Gastility: It promotes excretion and evacuation, expelling toxicants from the body.
or
Spearl
Spearlor
or: It helps a person to expel all that is toxic in the body through sweating,
urination and bowel movement it can provide the human body with more
energy and improve nourishment.
Among these products the following can elevate the immunity of the human body:
Sanlida, Inwarmer, Gui Pills, Toniyin, Holisticare, Kilimend and Salubry.

How is it that several herbal drugs mixed


with each other can achieve the purpose of
health care and disease treatment?
Dont you see that in every city there are several people
and organizations responsible for running the city?
They are the mayor, the grain and food bureau, the
communication bureau, etc. And there may also be an
environmental sanitation bureau.
The human body also requires several departments to
keep it running. If
things go wrong with any one or some of them,
the person will fall ill or descend into a
subhealthy condition.
For example, if
someone has got hypertension, then his/her
blood vessels may be obstructed somewhere.
That is to say his/her blood vessels may not be
good for blood passage, or communication. In
such a case, the scavenger Safbrain is needed to
remove the obstacles (serving as the
communication bureau or the environmental
sanitation bureau). If the persons arteries or
veins
are
not
good
enough
for
microcirculation---a case which may be
compared to a city with many lanes blocked for
passage of vehicles---then Sanlida is needed to
break them through (as if it were the communication bureau). If the patient of
hypertension has a very high level of cholesterol, a small amount of Gastility might
best be used (in the capacity of the environmental sanitation bureau) to expel as soon
as possible from the body all the rubbish that Safbrain has cleared out. Since the
accumulation of cholesterol and fat in the body is connected with the performance of
the digestive function, it is necessary to upgrade the overall transportation power of
the digestive system (the mayors duty in our allegory).
22

Administration of Ilextensor is for the purpose of reducing the blood pressure. The
taking of Toniyin in addition during a later stage is aimed at replenishment of energy
in the body and also for regulating spleen and stomach (performing the function of the
grain and food bureau).
What has been said above is no less than the method of treatment and regulation used
by traditional Chinese medicine, which has as its ultimate aim the restoration of
proper functioning to internal organs of the human body.

Why do a few individuals feel dizzy in the head and sore in the
waist and legs after taking the Sanlida?
Chinese traditional medical practitioners say,
"If the channels are free for passage, there
will be no pain; if there is pain, the body
channels are blocked." The Sanlida product
has the effect of making the main and
collateral channels of the body free for
passage and facilitating blood circulation. If
pain appears in certain parts of the body after
Sanlida is taken, that means the channels are
not free and blood is silting up, thereby
testifying to the fact that the ingredients of
the medicine have been absorbed and are
producing effect. It is necessary only to
reduce the dosage by taking the medicine
every other day. The symptoms of discomfort
will disappear in a week.
From the point of view of biochemistry,
Sanlida, having been taken, will produce an enzyme in certain parts of the body, such
as joints, the waist, and legs. The organisms of most people can absorb this enzyme.
So, there is no feeling of soreness and pain. On the contrary, if the enzyme is not
absorbed, soreness in the waist and legs may be felt. This reaction, however, is
entirely harmless.

TCM Health-care Regulation Program


I Preservation of Health
In accordance with the principle of correspondence between human beings
and the natural environment, traditional Chinese medicine holds the view that people,
living in an environment constituted by Nature, must accord well with the seasonal
changes in it, accommodating themselves in good time to such changes so as to keep
the yin and yang of their bodies in equilibrium and to ensure at the same time the
harmonious coexistence of their individual organisms with the external world so as to
reach the aim of preserving themselves in good health, lengthening their lifespans and
attaining longevity.
Disease arises from excessive employment. This is a maxim in
the Classic of Internal Medicine. It expresses an important view
in the etiology of traditional Chinese medicine and also a
fundamental principle in the science of health preservation. It
tells us that in order to be healthy and long-lived people must
pay attention to the need of doing work and taking rest both in
moderate amounts, because the incidence of a number of diseases is due to engaging
in labor, indulging in drinking and eating or doing physical or mental exercises in
amounts in excess of normal limits.
Preservation of health in spring and summer
In summer, because of the sweltering hot weather, which is
often so oppressive as to lead to excessive escape of the
bodys internal energy reserved for evolvement and
performance of functional activities or, owing to
accumulation of pathogenic cold in the body caused by
overindulgence in cold drinks and cold foods for the sake of lowering the body
temperature in order to prevent heat strokes, the energy inside the body to be used for
functional activities will wane and become deficient.
Therefore, one of the
principles for preservation of health in traditional Chinese medicine formulated to suit
the needs of different times of the year is conserving energy for functional activities
in spring and summer. For this reason, those people who live or work in an
air-conditioned environment for long hours a day or engage excessively in outdoor
sports will have the need to take Gui Pills and Inwarmer for the sake of their health.

Preservation of health in autumn and winter


Preserve nutrients in the body during autumn and winter. This dictum means that
as activities of all living things in the world subside during autumn and winter, people
who want to preserve their health should proceed according to the needs of the time.
They must protect the nutrients in the body by storing them up for the purpose of
nourishing the viscera with their conglomerated essence. Therefore, in autumn and
winter, it would be best to take Gui Pills and Toniyin.
24

Male and Female Sexual Health Preservation


According to traditional Chinese medical
practitioners understanding of the human
body, a girl reaches puberty at the age of 14
while a boy does so at 16. Then they arrive
at the summit of sexual maturity
respectively at the age of 28 (for the female)
and 32 (for the male). After that, their
physical strength descends with the
increase in age. The so-called exercise for
people of the right age is no other than
physical exercise within measure for a
certain age group in terms of strenuosity
and amount. It should be kept in mind that
the aim of taking physical exercises for aging people is, in the eyes of traditional
Chinese medical practitioners, not to train their bodies, but to preserve their health.
This is also the case with the restraint of the sexual affair. When a woman has reached
42 in age and when a man has become 48 years old, their physiological functions will
begin to decline; therefore, they should rein in their sexual desire or they should take
some diet supplement, so as to avoid too heavy a drain on their strength.
For men
Sanlida can strengthen the male psychic force and male
reproductive system; conserve the cerebrum, repair and
regenerate the brain cells, naturally improve memory; and
radically enhance immunity so as to really attain the goal of
nurturing the kidney and achieving male enhancement,
invigorating the brain, enhancing male sexuality, retarding the
aging process, prolonging life and boosting longevity.
People suited for SANLIDA
1. All male adults who want to keep or improve their male sexuality.
2. Those who are prone to catch cold, to feel tired, to be sleepless, to be lethargic, or
to feel anxiety, which are caused by weakness and health impairment due to lowering
of immunity.
3. Those who suffer from male impotency, premature male ejaculation, degeneration
of sexual function, weakening of sexual desire, dissatisfaction with sexual life, or lack
of male orgastic pleasure.
4. Those who suffer from frequent or painful micturition caused by prostatic
hypertrophy and those who have sore and feeble back and knees and sweating hands
and feet.
5. Those who have hypertension, cerebral embolism or who have suffered apoplexy.

25

For women
It is the dream of every female of the world to have a young and
beautiful appearance and a pair of full and round breasts.
Femegain is the ideal tonic of females. Speaking theoretically from
the point of view of traditional Chinese medicine, the development of
breasts and the question whether or not they are full and round are
connected with the level of sufficiency or inadequacy of the bodys blood and vital
energy. The chief merit of Femegain consists in its ability to make all the channels
and collaterals in the chest free for passage, to replenish the human body with blood
and vital energy, and to convey blood, vital energy and nourishment to the breasts by
means of targeting technology. Thus it can not only promote the development of the
common feminine bosom but also restore substance and firmness to breasts that have
fallen flat or even caved in. Moreover, Femegain can help to regulate and nourish
the body, postpone arrival of the climacteric, resist the aging process and beautify the
skin. Femegain also can prevent catching cold.
If a woman takes this product shortly after childbirth, she will have plentiful
freely-flowing milk.

For Children's Health


From the angle of traditional Chinese medicine, the reason is that
the internal organs of a child is not strong enough, and
insubordination of the lung meridian will entail cough (Note: The
term meridian means here the meridian syndrome, which is a
morbid condition), whereas fever is caused by hyperactivity of the
ministerial fire and insubordination of the gallbladder meridian
(Note: The term fire is often used to mean pathological manifestation of intense heat
such as flushed face, bloodshot eyes or acute local inflammation, resulting from
excessive functional activities or immoderate emotional influences, but here it means
physiological energy of life; and the term ministerial fire means the fire which
originates in the kidney and is attached to the liver and gallbladder, in contrast to the
monarch fire, which comes from the heart).
Melloey can subdue the lung meridian and foster the generation of vital energy, and
Feales can subdue the ministerial fire and the gallbladder meridian, replenishing at the
same time the hepatic vital enregy on a large scale. Therefore, a child can have
cough and fever prevented and health improved by holding in mouth every day a few
pieces of the palatable Melloey and Feales.
You must not belittle such a nibbling food. It is, as a matter of fact, based on a
classic prescription, and it has succeeded in curing many people of their diseases.
Those people who have children in their homes should give them these products to
nibble between meals. In that case, swallowing bitter drugs and taking intravenous
injections can be dispensed with or rendered much less frequent.

26

Reduction of weight
Obesity may be due to some causes connected with metabolism, endocrine
disorders and even habitual constipation. Anyhow, Salubry is the best
choice for such subhealthy people, who yearn for agility and general
improvement of health. Gastility can be taken for a certain period of time
with Salubry for better effect.
Relief from eyestrain
Eyestrain is caused most probably by intent contemplation of the TV screen for long
hours at a sitting each day, a habit which often dominates our life, with the result that
the frequency of blinking of our eyes is reduced and the secretion of tears is
correspondingly decreased in volume. These two generally unnoticed harmful
phenomena are worsened by strong flickering light darting from the TV screen. As the
eyeballs are connected with the liver, and the eyelids with the stomach and spleen,
traditional Chinese medicine resorts to nourishment of liver blood and the stomach
and spleen for relieving eyestrain. After taking Gui Pills and Toniyin for a certain
period of time the person who has constant eye fatigue will feel that he/she has been
perceptibly relieved of this annoying sensation.
Withdrawal from alcoholism
Habitual excessive alcoholic consumption is extremely
harmful. If an alcohol addict wants to regain his
health, he should first stop smoking and withdraw from
alcoholism. If he cannot pin his hope on his own
willpower to attain this aim, he may take Antialcoholic
Wonder, Livermend and use Quick-quit Smoking
Liquid and rest assured that they can help him cut out drinking and
smoking painlessly.Please visit www.sldint.com for more details.

II Treatment and Regulation


The divergence between traditional Chinese medical scholars and
doctors of Western medicine in their views of the organs of the human
body arises from the difference in their research methods.
Traditional Chinese medicine considers the human body as
an integral entity with all the organs in it interconnected, and
scholars of this science hold the belief that the body cannot
be studied by taking the flesh of each organ alone as the basis
of research. The Regulation Program, which follows, is
compiled by classifying the diseases discussed in it according
to the method of disease classification used in Western medicine, thus making the
Program easier to consult for people who are not well acquainted with traditional
Chinese medicine. (Note: You may also consult Table of Regulated Prescriptions.)

27

Diseases of the respiratory system


Cough
According to traditional Chinese medicine, cough and sore throat are often connected
with lung dryness and the exhaustion of salivary fluids of the respiratory system. As
cough is apt to damage a persons vitality, it is inevitable that a protracted cough will
make the person lose appetite for the daily meals and become worse and worse in
health.
The Melloey Buccal Tablet is made completely of edibles, which are Chinese olive,
sweet almond, tuber of dwarf lilyturf, honeysuckle, licorice root, Chinese yam, big
jujube, glucose, and peppermint. It is a tablet to be held as long as possible in the
mouth, where it tastes sweet, cool and refreshing, with a thin herbal fragrance. Not
only children but also adults are fond of it. It is widely loved not just for its taste,
but also because of its ability to solve the problems of cough (particularly dry cough)
and sore throat, with the added benefit of fostering the generation of vital energy and
strengthening spleen and stomach.
If the cough is very grave, this Tablet should be taken with the simultaneous
administration of Livermend, because an ingredient of Livermend, i.e. the fruit of
Chinese magnoliavine, can arrest lung excesses and calm cough and pacify
asthma, while the other ingredients of Livermend perform the functions of
tranquilization, activation of blood and resolution of stases, and elimination of
inflammation.
If the cough is accompanied with a fear of cold (concurrently with the symptoms of
influenza), the Tablet needs to be administered with Coldcurer, because the cassia
twig in Coldcurer is an exterior-releasing medicinal (i.e. a substance that has the effect
of dispelling exogenous pathogenic factors from the superficial, exterior aspect of the
body, usually through sweating), which can be used to treat an illness caused by wind
and cold, manifested as chilliness and mild fever, absence of sweating, headache,
stuffed and running nose, sneezing, general aching, and floating and tense pulse.
Moreover, it can suppress a number of harmful bacteria.

Fever
Fever is caused by hyperactivity of the ministerial fire and insubordination of the
gallbladder meridian. If a person has at first a headache, feels pain all over the body,
fears cold, and then, a little time later, runs a fever, he/she may do well to put a few
pieces of Feales in his/her mouth and drink some tepid water. The fever will naturally
subside with a little perspiration. However, if the person continues feeling cold even
though he/she is in fact febrile, or if he/she feels suppressed in the chest all the while,
he/she needs to keep in the mouth not only Feales but also Melloy simultaneously.
Strange to say, he/she will get the illness cured by so doing.

28

Nasosinusitis
Traditional Chinese medicine treats this disease by using the method of activating
blood and resolving stasis, diminishing inflammation, and relieving pain. To achieve
these purposes, Aegiseme and Safbrain may be administered. Moreover, traditional
Chinese medicine also upholds the concept of treating one and the same disease by
different methods. A medical practitioner in addressing nasosinusitis may embrace
this way of treatment and thus implement internal-heat clearance and detoxication if
he finds that the patient has profuse purulent nasal discharges, so the patient should
take Spearlor. The result of treatment is generally highly satisfactory.
Tonsillitis
The chief pathogenic bacterium of tonsillitis is hemolitic streptococcus Type B. In
the view of traditional Chinese medicine, nevertheless, acute tonsillitis is caused in
most cases by a struggle between wind and heat, resulting in a tie-up at the throat with
stagnation there of qi and blood.
Therefore, the treatment should accomplish, as its
main task, heat clearance and detoxication so as to facilitate passage at the pharynx
and make the swelling subside. Melloey and Spearlor may be used for that therapeutic
purpose. If the illness is grave, Aegiseme and Safbrain may be added.
As for chronic tonsillitis of a general nature, all that is necessary is strengthening the
patients constitution, keeping the body comfortably warm and paying due attention to
rest and nutrition, so as to reduce the chances of acute aggravation. In such a case,
Salubry and Melloey may be taken and adequate measures adopted according to the
needs of the season to keep the bodys health well preserved.
Common cold
Early in The Classic of Internal Medicine it was recognized that the common cold is
principally caused by external wind evil, and the principle of giving support to
healthiness and expelling the evil was put forward.
The reader is expected to benefit, in this respect, from a knowledge of the two
principles by which traditional Chinese medicine treats colds. They are given below.
1. For treatment of the common cold as well as colds induced by a seasonal
epidemic, traditional Chinese medicine adopts the principle of using
exterior-releasing therapy with pungent-powdered medicinals, by which the
external evil factors are banished and the persons healthiness is made safe and
unmolested---to the effect that the cold is cured. (Note: exterior releasing
therapy
therapy: a general term for dispelling pathogenic factors from the exterior of the
body, commonly used in the treatment of exterior syndromes;
pungent-powdered medicinals
medicinals: medicinals pungent in flavor and powder in
form)
2. People who are aged, who have weak constitutions, who are convalescing, or
who are women feeling weak soon after childbirth or usually frail in constitution
may tend to catch cold repeatedly or may have colds linger on in them as if
endlessly. Their colds seem to be somewhat different from the common cold of
people in general. The principle of treatment of very weak people for their
29

common cold consists in laying stress on strengthening healthiness and


eliminating the pathogenic factors. In cases where the gastrointestinal tract
becomes encroached upon, the complications ought to be dealt with by
supplementary therapies of dampness resolution, stomach harmonization, and
vital-energy regulation.
We are glad to recommend to you here our product Coldcurer, which conforms with
the therapeutic principles described above, being based upon a prescription of
accurate composition for that purpose, and which, therefore, can be used to treat the
common cold of people in general and that variety of the common cold, so to speak,
which afflicts very weak people.In treating the common cold and other colds, it has
been shown to take effect very soon. The common cold (or any other cold) can be
cured in 2-3 days after administration of Coldcurer starts. Recrudescence is very
rare, as has been found.
The method of administration of Coldcurer is very simple:
1. When under attack of any cold, take Coldcurer 3 times a day at 2 pieces a time.
If the cold is complicated by a fever, take Feales in addition.
2. Those who have very weak constitutions need to take Coldcurer for a few more
days after the fit of the cold is over, at 2 times a day and 1-2 pieces a time, in order
to consolidate the therapeutic effect and strengthen their bodies.
What is more, if the person often takes Sanlida or Feales, he/she will not easily
catch cold, for the simple reason that people who are liable to fall prey to the
common cold need to make themselves healthier.

Bronchitis
Chronic bronchitis is a disease that persists for a long time. As a persistent disease
inevitably causes deficiency in strength and vitality, most patients of chronic
bronchitis have constitutions of the deficiency-cold type, which is reflected by the fact
that their lungs, spleen and kidneys are all deficient in strength and vitality. In order
to make the lungs and kidneys srong again, administration of Kilimend and Melloey
are required; and for reinforcement of stomach and spleen and replenishment of the
body with vitality, Inwarmer is to be taken in addition in the morning and at noon, and
Toniyin to be taken both in the afternoon and in the evening.

Asthma
Traditional Chinese medicine has a long experience of treating asthma, which dates
back almost two thousand years. It has a method of its own and a theory that forms
an independent system. Dialecticism is advocated. The peculiarity of the method
and of the theory consists in maintaining that during the period of an acute attack the
lungs are to be taken as the center of treatment and the purpose is to alleviate the
symptoms; that during the period of remission, the root cause of the disease is to be
tackled and the purpose is to cure the disease by taking the lungs, the spleen and the
kidneys as the focus of treatment or regulation, and that herbal medicines are to be
30

used to strengthen the spleen and tonify the kidneys, to stop coughing and calm
panting, to regulate breathing and remove phlegm, so as to reach the aim of sustaining
the healthy force of the body, banishing the evil force of illness, strengthening the
constitution, and raising the resistance of the body.
Pneumonia
There are quite a number of pathogenic agents that can invade the respiratory tract
and cause pneumonia. Traditional Chinese medicines may be adopted at a later stage
of treatment of the disease as the principal means for regulation to enable the patient
to regain his/her health at an early time. Spearlor may be taken for two weeks to
dispel the heat toxin in the lungs. Kilimend and Toniyin may be used after that for
rehabilitation and for strengthening immunity so as to consolidate the achievements of
treatment.

Pulmonary tuberculosis
Pulmonary tuberculosis is called lung phthisis, or wasting away of the lungs, in
traditional Chinese medicine. At present, the anti-tuberculosis therapy of Western
medicine is exercising a decisive control over pulmonary tuberculosis. However,
when an ex-patient of pulmonary tuberculosis happens to have his/her immunity
lowered during a certain period, the surviving bacilli in the body are apt to resume
the burning, which is an important cause of the relapse of pulmonary tuberculosis.
Oral administration of some herbal products for regulation purposes can raise the
bodys immunity and play an important role in the prevention of relapse of pulmonary
tuberculosis. It is advisable to take Kilimend and Toniyin first and, for obtaining a
better effect, add to them Safbrain. Safbrain may be replaced by Inwarmer in 1-2
months, but administration of Kilimend and Toniyin is to be continued.

Emphysema
Emphysema pertains to the realm of dyspnea syndrome in traditional Chinese
medicine, and advice has been offered to tackle the therapy in such a way as to accord
with the individual constitution of each patient and to give priority to the treatment of
those aspects of the disease which are urgent and call for immediate attention so as to
take full advantage of what is still healthy in the patients body and banish as soon as
possible all evil signs of the disease. Spearlor and Toniyin may be administered
first, and when the patients condition has become stable special attention should be
paid to the replenishment of the lung fluid and the kidney fluid, which are the
nutrients, but are usually called yin by the traditional medical profession. By that
time, Kilimend may be added and Spearlor suspended.

31

Diseases of the Digestive System


Dyspepsia
What is known in Western medicine as functional dyspepsia pertains to the field of
gastric-cavity pain, as is called in the parlance of traditional Chinaes medicine, which
actually means epigastric tenderness.
The methods of treatment often used by
tradition are those for strengthening the spleen and stomach and for removing
earlier-than-overnight food remnants in the body. The best choice for reaching this
aim is administration of Salubry.

Gastritis
Clinical manifestations of chronic superficial gastritis are poor appetite and
conspicuous decrease in food intake.
This disease deplorably recrudesces very
often. Long-term administration of Western medicines tends to do some harm to the
functioning of the stomach. It would be more appropriate to take herbal medicines
to tackle the disease at its very root. The basic method is by administration of
Salubry. If a need to reinforce the therapeutic effect is felt, Inwarmer may be
administered in the forenoon and at noon, and Toniyin may be used in the afternoon
and in the evening. Thus not only will the symptoms be dismissed, but the stomach
will also be nourished and the constitution strengthened. Two birds will be killed with
one stone, so to speak.

Atrophic gastritis
Atrophic gastritis is a disease of the digestive sytem characterized by atrophy and
thinning of the stomach mucosa, often with decrease in or disappearance of the
glands. It pertains to the realm of stuffiness, tenderness and bloating of the gasttric
cavity, in the terms of scholarly traditional Chinese medicine.
The prevalent method in traditional Chinese medicine for clinical treatment of chronic
gastritis is what is termed analgesia by regulation. Remarkable effect has been
achieved by this logical way of application of herbal medicines for the cure of chronic
gastritis Aegiseme is to be used first (for one month), Inwarmer is to be used in the
forenoon and at noon, and Toniyin is to be taken in the afternoon and in the evening at
the same time. When the patients condition has become so good as to warrant the
cessation of administration of the medicines, only Salubry need be taken
continually---for long-term health preservation.

Constipation
In treating constipation, traditional Chinese medicine depends on dialectical reasoning
and analysis to arrive at the correct diagnosis of the disease and on the principle of
32

seeking for the root cause of the disease to decide on the prescriptions and on the
individual medicinals to be used. The concrete treatment method is generally as
follows:
A .Those patients who have excess-fire (with symptoms shown as headache, fondness
for cold drinks when thirsty, irritability and restlessness, great difficulty in evacuation
of bowels, yellow-colored urine) need to have their bodies cleared of internal heat and
their bowels purged of feces. They should take Gastility first for two weeks, with
Spearlor at the same time. Each time take half caplet of Gastility for child between 1-3
years old.

B. Those patients who have deficiency-fire should have their body fluids increased to
moisten those parts of the body that are dry. They should be given small doses of
Gastility and requested to take Toniyin at the same time, each according to the
condition of his/her constitution.
A person who is habitually constipated needs to have his/her gastrointestinal
functioning adjusted. Toniyin and Salubry may be taken for a long time at the
health-care dosage. The disease thus cured will not tend to recrudesce for a long time
to come.
Diarrhea
In traditional Chinese medicine, chronic diarrhea is called long diarrhea and classed
along with the syndrome of spleen insufficiency with damp retention. Administration
of Salubry and Inwarmer will have very good results.
Elderly patients of chronic diarrhea should be persuaded to go to hospital for
colonoscopy so as not to miss the chance of having a more serious disease discovered
and treated in time.
Gastric ulcer
In order to get the gastric ulcer healed the patient must presevere in taking the proper
medicine for a long time, do his/her best to improve the function of digestive glands
and increase the defensive strength of the stomach mucosa, keep a relaxed state of
mind and observe strict regularity in dietary behavior. All these are of pivotal
importance.
Colitis
This disease is not a local pathological change of the colon. Its main cause is lack of
vital energy in the spleen, which renders the spleen incapable of performing
vigorously its transporting and transforming function. During the time when the
disease is raging, it is necessary to clear the colon of heat toxin. Spearlor should be
taken for 2-4 weeks. A better effect may be achieved if Safbrain is taken in addition.
This is a method of the utmost efficacy, which combines the treatment of the spleen
and the stomach with that of the colon.
Hemorrhoid
The way by which traditional Chinese medicine treats hemorrhoid differs radically
33

from that of Western medicine.


Western medicine advocates excision, while
traditional Chinese medicine directs the treatment at the cause of the disease and uses
such methods as clearing the body of heat toxin, resolving blood stasis and
diminishing the inflammation. For common cases special treatment is not needed.
For serious cases, conservative methods are used to reduce the patients suffering of
pain, to prevent the slipping and hanging down of the hemorrhoid core, to eliminate
the inflammation and to reduce the bleeding of the hemorrhoid core.

Diseases of the nervous system


Epilepsy
Blockade of channels and collaterals in the human meridian system is the direct cause
of an attack of epilepsy, but a combination of heat toxin with blood stasis is, in its
turn, one of the main events in the body giving rise to closure of the meridian passage.
Administration of Acherid and Gastility can dispel the heat toxin and blood stasis so
as to improve the supply of oxygen and blood to the brain, whereby there might be a
better chance for effective control to be exercised over the epilepsy. If a patient is
liable to have repeated epileptic seizures, there is a great probability that his spleen
and kidneys will be injured thereby and his supply of vital energy and blood will
become inadequate. Administration of Salubry and Toniyin can tonify his spleen and
kidneys and replenish his vital energy and blood.

Parkinsonism
This disease pertains to deficiency and impairment of vitality, according to traditional
Chinese medicine, and the principal pathological changes are said to occur in three
viscera, which are the kidneys, the spleen and the liver. Since the renal organ
governs the bone and enables the marrow to grow, with benefit accruing and reaching
up to the brain, as is stated in classics of Chinese medicine, renal deficiency will be
followed by inadequacy of brains, which will cause the person to show delayed
reflexes and move awkwardly as if he had difficulty in initiating voluntary
movements. If the muscles are not properly nourished, they will lose elasticity and
smack of rigidity. Therefore, traditional Chinese medicine treats this syndrome by
standing on the platform of the classic teaching Nourish the kidneys and tonify the
brain; strengthen the spleen and enrich the vital energy.

Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia pertains to the realm of depressive-manic psychosis in traditional
Chinese medicine and is given the epithet phlegm clouding of the mind.
Theoretically speaking, schizophrenia stems from disequilibrium of yin and yang.
Therefore, the patient should be treated from the point of view of the whole person
taken as an intgral entity. Safbrain may be used to banish the pathogenic evil and
34

resolve the phlegm, which should not be confused with sputum. Other medicines
recommended herein (take Inwarmer in the forenoon and Toniyin in the evening) may
also be given to the patient to adjust his vital energy and blood, to restore yin and
yang to equilibrium, and to strengthen his immunity.

Senile dementia
Traditional Chinese medicine holds the view that senile dementia is closely connected
with abatement of the functional capability of the brains as well as with that of the
ability of the viscera to generate vital energy and blood through transformations.
What is more important in this respect is whether the kidneys are functioning
normally or not, for only when the kidneys abound with nutrient essence can they
generate brains by biochemical transformations, which depend for their success on the
quality of performance of the digestive function besides.

Dizziness
In traditional Chinese medicine this disease is generally considered to be no less than
vertigo. It is in most cases due to deficiency in vital energy and blood, inadequacy of
renal essence, or insufficient nourishment of the brains, though in some cases it may
also be ascribed to weakness of the stomach or intestines. The symptoms of vertigo
can be improved remarkably in a short time by taking Inwarmer and Salubry.

Multiple sclerosis
Traditional Chinese medicine views multiple, or disseminated, sclerosis as a type of
atrophy-flaccidity syndrome, for treatment of which herbal medicines targeted on its
cause should be used to enrich vital energy and break through the blocked collaterals
of the human meridian system ( Acherid and Coldcurer ) and to strengthen the spleen
and nourish the kidneys ( Inwarmer ). It is particularly important to enlist such
herbal medicines for use during the period of a remission, because recrudescence of
the disease can be prevented and a lot of labor and trouble in the future may be
avoided by incurring a small cost at present.

Polyneuritis
Polyneuritis is equivalent in traditional Chinese medicine to what is called the
blockage disease, which is a diseased state characterized by invasion of pathogenic
factors that cause stagnation of the flow of vital energy and blood and blockage of the
meridian collaterals, and is, moreover, akin to the atrophy-flaccidity disease, which is
a diseased condition characterized by flaccid paralysis with muscular atrophy of a
limb. It has various causes, such as malnutrition, obstacles in metabolism, infection,
and hypersensitivity. The lesions are generally at the endings of peripheral nerves,
causing difficulties to distal portions of the extremities in making symmetrical and
35

asymmetrical movements. Thus, this disease consists in functional impairment and


injury to the autonomous nerve system. Polyneuritis with numbness and pain in the
distal portions of the extremities, for cure of which this prescription, i.e. Acherid, can
be used in all cases, but medication has to be stopped as soon as recovery is seen to
have been achieved. Excess medication is not to be encouraged.

Neurasthenia
According to traditional Chinese medicine, neurasthenia is caused by what is
professionally termed (1) heart-spleen dual deficiency and (2) yin deficiency with
up-flaming fire. Herbal medicines and traditional medical methods ought to be
adopted for regulation so as to tonify the heart and the spleen. At the same time, the
patient should adjust his/her frame of mind, keep firm reins on his/her emotions, and
be always even-tempered and good-humored.

Headache
In traditional Chinese medicine, headaches fall into two categories, which are (1)
externally contracted headache: various types of headache ascribed to exogenous
afflictions, e.g. (a) headache due to attack of external wind-cold, marked by pain in
the head extending to the nape and back, aversion to cold and wind, soreness and pain
in the joints, watery nasal discharge, thin and whitish tongue coating and floating
tense pulse, (b) headache due to attack of external wind-heat, usually associated with
fever, thirst, constipation, and floating, rapid pulse; (2) internal damage headache:
headache, unilateral or bilateral, marked by slow onset and intermittent recurrences,
with manifestations indicating presence of endogenous pathogenic factors, e.g. (a)
stagnant-blood headache: chronic headache, stabbing in character and fixed in
location, often occurring after a traumatic injury, (b) blood-deficiency headache:
headache marked by dull pain in the head, usually accompanied by dizziness, pallor
and palpitation. This type of internal damage headache is connected with disorder in
liver, spleen, kidneys and the human meridian system.
Acherid is reputed in China to be a good medicine for treating obstinate headache;
explosive neuralgia in different parts of the body; dizziness, which is a sensation of
unsteadiness with a feeling of movement within the head; numbness, which means
reduced sensitivity to touch, not loss of the ability to feel and move; and also big pain
in general.

Eye, nose and throat diseases


Glaucoma
Our eyes can see because they are supplied with vital energy and blood. It is the
opinion of traditional Chinese medical scholars that for the prevention and cure of
glaucoma or cataract it is necessary to keep the channels and collaterals of the human
36

meridian system free for passage so as to enable vital energy and blood to flow
upward without impediment.
Besides, there is also the need to strengthen the
presons constitution for better performance of various physical functions so that
energy can be absorbed and transformed. Administration of Sanlida, Aegiseme and
Toniyin will be very helpful for achieving remission of the disease.

Cataract
It is common knowledge that a cataract is lens opacity. Many people over 60 have
some degree of lens opacity. Although the mechanism of senile cataract is still not
clear, it will not be much wrong to say that in the case of old people the cause of the
opacity may be traced to lack of vital energy and blood, which results from aging and
physical deterioration. Anyhow, medical treatment is suitable only at the early stage
of the disease and a little time later.

Nosebleed
There are many diseases which entail this symptom.
From the standpoint of
traditional Chinese medicine, the causes of nosebleed fall into two categories, which
are dryness-heat and deficiency-cold.
The majority of people whose noses
frequently bleed show symptoms of both categories. They belong to what traditional
Chinese medical scholars call the yin deficiency with up-flaming fire type. (They
have such symptoms as flushed cheeks, irritability, sore throat or increased libido.)
As for those people who suffer from nosebleed only of either of the two categories
mentioned above, their symptoms are as follows:
* Those who have the dryness-heat in their bodies show red eyes, swollen gums, sore
throat, and constipation. They should take Gui Pills and Toniyin.
* Those who have the deficiency-cold in their bodies show poor appetite, languor,
aptness to be tired and lack of strength, cold hands and feet, and shapeless or even
watery stool. They should take Gui Pills and Inwarmer.

Stomatitis
Ulcerative stomatitis, or aphthous ulcer, a recurrent oral disease, is ascribed by
traditional Chinese medicine to exuberance of deficiency-fire in the human body. It
is necessary to pay special attention to oral hygiene and the regulation of spleen and
stomach. A comparatively good therapeutic effect can be achieved by adopting a
method which combines external treatment with internal treatment.

Diseases of the blood-circulation system


High blood pressure
High blood pressure pertains to the realm of headache and vertigo in traditional
37

Chinese medicine, which holds the view that hypertension cannot be treated by solely
depending on hypotensive drugs, that a dietary routine designed on a scientific basis
can play a positive role in the prevention of the illness and recovery from it, and that
the effect of a hypotensive drug can be enhanced by proper regulation of the patients
constitution with the help of a traditional Chinese medicine, whereby the dosage of
the hypotensive drug and its side effect can be reduced.
An old persons hypertension is caused by abnormalities in metabolism or structural
and functional changes in the cardiovascular system or in the kidneys brought about
by the process of aging. For this reason, lesions in such target organs as heart, brain,
and kidneys are more liable to appear in aged patients of hypertension. Long-term
regular treatment and regulation can manifestly improve the prognosis and diminish
the complications.
Safbrain may be taken for a period of time to clear the blood vessels of fat and
stagnant blood; Ilextesor may be used to reduce the blood pressure and blood fat; and
Sanlida may be used to break through the veins and arteries for promotion of
microcirculation to stabilize and steady the blood pressure. For regulation of the
illness during a later period Salubry, Ilextesor and Inwarmer may be taken for a
considerable length of time.

Hypercholesterolemia
No method is better than that of using traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of
hypercholesterolemia. Hypercholesterolemia is detrimental to a persons body, but a
level of cholesterol in the blood which is lower than normal is bad all the same for the
persons health. There are quite a number of Chinese herbal drugs which can lower
the level of cholesterol in the blood and prevent atherosclerosis at the same time.
What you need to do for this purpose is take Safbrain and simultaneously take a small
dose of Gastility for a certain length of time in order to expel cholesterol from the
body for achieving the effect of lowering the hypercholesterolemia. Salubry may be
taken for a long time for the purpose of regulation.

Angina pectoris
Angina pectoris, which is due to a discrepancy between the myocardial demands for
oxygen and the amount delivered through the coronary arteries, pertains to the realm
of chest qi-blockage and heartache in traditional Chinese medicine, by which is
meant that although the illness is in the heart it is connected with three viscera---the
spleen, the liver and the kidneys. In the view of traditional medical scholars, there is
not enough force in the body to urge blood to flow through the vessels, with the result
that the blood begins flowing slowly, stagnates and has difficulty in passing through.
This is the premise and basis of incidence of this disease. Therefore, the treatment
of angina pectoris should start from strengthening the spleen and resolving the
phlegm; activating blood and resolving stasis. Safbrain, Aegiseme and Holisticare
should be taken first, for a certain period of time, and then Holisticare ought to be
38

taken continually for regulation.

Arteriosclerosis
In treating coronary arteriosclerosis, or atherosclerosis, traditional Chinese medicine
relies chiefly on activating the blood, resolving the phlegm and breaking through the
meridian collaterals In this case, Safbrain may be administered. However, both
traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine find it difficult to make a
fundamental cure of the disease. They only ameliorate the symptoms, lower the level
of blood fat and try to reverse the development of the light-yellow patch of sclerosis
on the artery that has already been formed. In order to prevent further development
of artherosclerosis, regulation needs to be carried out by long-term administration of
Holisticare and Salubry.

Heart disease
At an early time in its history of development traditional Chinese medicine recognized
a number of types of heart disease. As a science and technology for the treatment
and cure of human diseases, traditional Chinese medicine has a rich and lustrous past.
In the case of treating heart diseases, it usually starts by taking heart, liver, spleen,
lungs and kidneys as a whole, as an integral entiry--- with the result that not only the
heart is benefited by the effective treatment but also the other viscera are given proper
regulation and health-care protection. The effect has often been remarkable in that
both the symptoms and the root cause were eliminated. Generally speaking, Safbrain
should be taken first, and the effect can be improved by adding to it Aegiseme. For
regulation purposes, Holisticare may be used for a long time.

Heart failure
For patients of heart failure, Sanlida must be used to break through the
microcirculations of the veins and arteries. Inwarmer should never be forgotten for
replenishment of vital energy and strengthening of spleen and stomach, which will
produce an effect far greater than merely looking after the heart.

Apoplexy
Herbal drugs, acupuncture and medical massage of traditional Chinese medicine
constitute an important means of treating the sequelae of apoplexy.
The
rehabilitation therapy of apoplexy has as its first aim attaining recuperation of the
cerebral tissue from injuries that it has suffered.
This therapy adheres to the
principle of restoring intelligence to the mind primarily by making the meridian
channels and collaterals completely free for passage and secondarily by harmonizing
vital energy and blood.
Deformity of joints and/or muscular atrophy as the sequela of a stroke, for which
39

administration of Acherid is to be carried out at 3 times a day (2 pieces a time).


After continual administration for 10 days there should be a pause of 5 days. In so
doing, great benefit has been found to accrue to the patients progress of recuperation.
This method of inserting a pause of 5 days in the course of two installments of
medication lasting 10 days each brings also good effect when Acherid is used for
treatment of epilepsy.

Anemia
For the great variety of anemias, medicated diets may be selectively used by a patient
for regulation and nourishment. It is necessary for him/her at the same time to pay
attention to the adjustment of general mental disposition.
That is to say the
convalescent should regulate his/her mind as well as his/her body, which is an effort
conducive to the normalization of functions of the spleen and the stomach and to the
generation of vital energy and blood by transformation. A proper balance must be
kept between work and rest all that time. Take Inwarmer in the forenoon and Toniyin
in the evening.

Varicose veins
For treating varicose veins in the lower limbs, traditional Chinese medicine adopts the
method of breaking through the venous microcirculations, activating blood and
resolving blood stasis.
Sanlida and Safbrain may be administered in order to
facilitate dissolution of the thrombi, removing obstacles from the blood vessels,
clearing the blood vessels of waste, and eliminating swelling, aching and itching. In
daily life, the patient should further reduce the intensity of his/her labor and lay more
stress on physical exercise.

Endocrine, metabolic and urological diseases


Hepatitis
In the treatment of hepatitis, traditional Chinese medicine takes resolution of heat
toxin as the focal point of work in the early stage. Therefore, Spearlor may be
administered for a certain length of time (one month). The traditional practitioners
generally consider the treatment of hepatitis a two-sided task, by no means confined
to the liver, but with regulation of the patients splenetic and gastric functions also
indispensable. For this reason, administration of Livermend, Inwarmer and Salubry is
necessary to take at the same time.
Kilimend may be added when the patients
condition has stabilized. Kilimend and Salubry may be used for a long time

40

Cirrhosis of liver
Cirrhosis of liver at the early stage is due in most cases to the fact that three internal
organs, which are the liver, the spleen and the kidneys, have been affected by
pathogenic agents with the outcome that stagnation of the flow of vital energy and
blood ensues. Aegiseme, Livermend and Safbrain, which are capable of softening
and dissolving hard nodules, may be chosen for use for the purpose of intercepting
fibrosis of liver cells in the process of their recuperation so as to forestall the
occurrence of hepatic cirrhosis. Kilimend may be used later because the focal point
of treatment in the later stage has been transferred to the nourishment and fostering of
the fluids of liver and kidneys.

Fatty liver
The weakening of the body of the organism leading to deterioration of the digestive
function is what makes fat accumulate,. There is excess fat which cannot be digested.
However, with the improvement of the digestive function, the excess amount of fat
will naturally diminish, and the patients condition will naturally look up. In therapy,
the effort to get rid of the excess fat is combined with that of strengthening the spleen
and the stomach. The patient needs to engage more in physical exercise and to eat
predominantly foods not only low in carbohydrate but also low in fat so as to reduce
the ingestion of fat.

Cholecystolithiasis
In the view of scholars of traditional Chinese medicine, cholecystolithiasis and
cholecystitis pertain to the realm of hypochondriac pain and jaundice, which are
induced, on the one hand, by dissatisfaction with ones own life and career and, on the
other, by eating too much fatty, sweet, and greasy food, with the consequence that
functional disturbance of the liver occurs (manifested by irascibility, stuffy feeling in
the chest, hypochondriac and lower abdominal distension with pain). At the same
time, the spleen is losing its ability to transport healthfully; and damp heat is being
generated inside. Consequently, bile condenses into hard stones.
The fundamental principle in traditional Chinese medicine governing treatment of this
disease can be phrased succinctly as bile draining, anti-icterus, bowel unblocking,
heat purging and anti-inflammation---a heavy task which consists of (1) using an
agent or substance that promotes increased flow of bile to relieve jaundice; (2) using a
therapeutic method for removing internal heat by catharsis and other means; and (3)
eradicating inflammation by all means. Accordingly, Spearlor, Gastility and Aegiseme
need to be taken by the patient.
Salubry, which should be taken in addition, can correct the disorder in fat metabolism,
dissociate with liquefaction the cholesterol in the bile so as to maintain the liver and
gallbladder functions at the normal level, and decompose all gallstones. The patient
41

should be advised to drink more water.

Diseases of the thyroid gland


Traditional Chinese medicine classes diseases of the thyroid gland in the category of
goiters. The procedure used by practitioners in the treatment of hyperthyroidism is:
(1) adjustment of the organisms immunity; (2) regulation of functional activities of
the nervous system and also those of the body-fluid system ; (3) inhibition of the
secretion of thyroxine.
Traditional Chinese medicine has conducted effective
treatments from the following angles: nourishing body-fluids and reducing fire,
resolving blood stases, and activating blood. Patients of diseases of the thyroid
gland may reasonably take Spearlor and Safbrain.
Clinical treatment of a great number of cases of hyperthyroidism has been conducted
by using methods combining traditional Chinese medicine with Western medicine, as
if they were two sides cooperating in the performance of one task, so that each side
was able to benefit from the others strong points by using them to make up for its
own weakness. Optimum results have thus been achieved.

Diabetes mellitus
Treatment of diabetes mellitus by traditional Chinese medicine has a very long
history, particularly in respect to control of patients conditions, elevation of
immunocompetence, prevention and treatment of complications, and alleviation of
symptoms, in all of which traditional Chinese medicne is known to have made a rich
harvest of eminent achievements
Patients of diabetes mellitus of the first and second phases may be advised to take
Holisticare, Safbrain and Toniyin.
On the basis of the theory of dialectical diagnosis, traditional Chinese medicine
divides diabetes mellitus into two types: the heat-toxin type and the deficiency-cold
type.
A. The incidence of diabetes mellitus with the patient developing occlusive arterial
disease of the foot and lower leg is closely connected with presence of. Heat toxin in
the body, stagnation in flow of vital energy and blood, and deficiency in body-fluids.
There is a need here to take Spearlor, which can clear the body of heat toxin.
B. Addition of Inwarmer is necessary for those patients who have constitutions of the
deficiency-cold type (Symptoms seen are loose and thin stool, painful knee-joints, and
cold limbs).

Hypoglycemia
Hypoglycemia is not a disease on its own but a physiological phenomenon brought
about by certain pathological and physiological factors which cause reduction of
blood sugar to a level below the physiological limit. Hypoglycemia is due principally
42

to the person lacking moderation in eating and drinking, his/her body being frequently
overtired, or the dwelling place being unsanitary. With the elapse of time, the
persons internal organs come to be so adversely affected that their functions are
thrown into disorder, resulting ultimately in retardation of the flow of vital energy and
blood. However, the person may expect an extraordinary turn in his/her health after
beginning administration of Holisticare,Kilimend and Salubry.

Gout
Gout is a disease that comes in the wake of inordinate eating. Great attention must,
therefore, be paid to the implementation of dieting. However, there are in traditional
Chinese medicine two methods of treatment, both being based theoretically on
dialecticism. They are the method of activating blood and resolving stasis and the
method of warming and tonifying spleen and kidneys. Administration of Acherid
will facilitate the excretion of uric acid and stop pain, and that of Toniyin can warm
and tonify spleen and kidneys. They are good health-care products for patients of
gout.

Nephritic calculi
In treating nephritic calculi, or renal stones, traditional Chinese medicine emphasizes
grasping one hieroglyph, which is phonetically tong and semantically, in English,
open or through. The basic principle implied in this hieroglyph is eliminating
the renal stones as far as possible to make the way open (or: for things to pass
through) and, in this interpretation, prevention of reappearance of the stones is
also implied as a step forward--- both for the purpose of relieving the patients
suffering and for protecting his/her renal function. Based on the dialectic theory of
treatment advocated by traditional Chinese medicine, the majority of herbal drugs
used for nephritic calculi have the effects of clearing the body of internal heat, tending
to increase the discharge of urine, resolving blood stases , dissolving hard nodules,
and alleviating or stopping pain. The benefit is not restricted to one locality of the
body but is spread all over the internal environment of the entire organism, albeit the
regulation made is not of the same degree at different parts of the body.

Chronic nephritis
Patients of chronic nephritis generally show in urinalysis: proteinuria, occult
hematuria, and signs associated with tubular defects; and in clinical manifestations
show: palpitation, fatigability, sallow cheeks, and wakefulness in the night. From
the point of view of traditional Chinese medicine, this is a demonstration of the
typical heart-spleen dual deficiency. Treatment of this disease by means of herbal
medicinals should be conducted in adherence to the principle of having the heart and
the spleen regulated and tonified at the same time as having the turbidity and stasis in
the body resolved.
A patient is suggested to take Inwarmer, Kilimend, and
43

Aegiseme.

If Sanlida is taken simultaneously, the therapeutic effect will be better.

Chronic renal failure


In the view of traditional Chinese medicine, a renal disease, no matter which, will
cause serious damage to the functioning of various viscera of the body, if it is
protracted.
The main objects damaged are the spleen and the very kidneys
themselves, on which deficiency and injuries will be inflicted,and the illness will
become more and more serious with the elapse of time until, at last, the bodys
healthiness is exhausted and chronic renal failure ensues. However, experts of renal
diseases in traditional Chinese medicine have accumulated rich experience in the
treatment of chronic renal failure.
They emphasize upholding healthiness by
banishing stases in the body, by regulating the spleen and the stomach, and also by
nourishing the kidneys and the blood.

Diabetic nephropathy
There is an adage in traditional Chinese medicine, which says, Chronic diseases
enter the meridian collaterals. As the kidneys are the places where the collaterals
congregate, diabetic nephropathy arises, as a matter of fact, from long protraction of
diabetes mellitus and presents itself on the patient chiefly in the form of edema of
limbs.
In the view of traditional Chinese medical scholars, this disease is the
consequence of decline in strength of the spleen and the kidneys; so, in treatment,
stress should be laid on blood being activated, stases being resolved, body fluids
being nourished, and collaterals being made free for passage. The effect will be very
good if Kilimend is used for administration over and above customary treatment.

Urinary-tract infection
Traditional Chinese medicine assigns urinary-tract infection to the category of strain
strainguria( i.e. strainguria as a result of overstrain, marked by dripping of urine with
dull pain) and describes its etiology as having been affected by external evil so that
the bodys resistance is much lower than usual. In conformity with the above
statement, a method of treatment which clears the body of damp heat and nourishes
the spleen and the kidneys has come into being with, good clinical results, as a rule.

Andropathy
Impotence
At present, there are quite a number of methods for treating impotence. A choice can
44

be made from among them according to personal requirement.


Either of the
following two ways can achieve the aim and additionally fortify the mans
constitution and prolong his lifespan---so significantly that he may be assured of
longevity: 1. By taking Sanlida, which shows a quick result. You should take both
Sanlida and Inwarmer, if you want to take Sanlida for a long time, the effect will be
better and without any side effect. 2. By taking Holisticare and Kilimend, which has
a slower but steady effect.

Prostatic hyperplasia
According to traditional Chinese medicine, prostatitis and prostatic hyperplasia have
their seats in the urinary bladder, but they are linked to kidneys, lungs, spleen and the
triple energizer (a collective term in traditional Chinese medicine for the three
portions of the body cavity, through which qi and fluids are transmitted). The
method used for treatment consists in softening and dissolving the hard nodule and
breaking through the impeded channels and collaterals. Clinical practice has shown
that the administration of Sanlida and Aegiseme has such good effects on prostatic
hyperplasia and prostatitis as to be beyond the patients expectation.

Diseases of the immunosystem


Weak immune
Traditional Chinese medicine puts great emphasis on Treatment in advance of
disease and Guard against a disease before it comes. Early
in the ancient Classic of Internal Medicine it was pointed out that a master
physician gives treatment prior to the appearance of illness, which means that a
brilliant physician is skilled in taking precautionary measures and making
arrangements for treating an illness before it occurs or before it has become grave,
so that the disorder is placed under control before it bursts out, or before it has
become apparent. The gist of the so-called treatment in advance of disease is no
more than reinforcement of immunization, i.e. the strengthening of the ability of an
organism to resist illness. This has a threefold implication: (1) increasing the
physical endurance of the organism; (2) raising its resistance to diseases; (3)
eliminating a disease, slowing down the progress of the disease or taking the
progress under control.

Fatigability
Fatigability means here that a person lacks strength and generally feels tired both
physically and mentally. A little exertion makes him/her sense some fatigue. The
organisms levels of immunological function and resistance to disease are both
comparatively low. A practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine would consider
lack of strength of the whole body to be a symptom of hepatogastric heat-stagnancy
complicated by splenetic insufficiency. The patient might be advised to take some
45

ready-made herbal medicines as are recommended herein (Holisticare and saluabry)


for regulation and nourishment of the body. He/she should also engage every day in
some physical exercises suitable to his/her constitution.

Lupus erythematosus
Systemic lupus erythematosus is the most typical of diseases which have an
autoimmune mechanism. It can injure skin, mucosa, serosa, blood vessels, joints,
heart, kidneys, liver, spleen, lungs, stomach, intestines, blood and lymph--- all tissues
and organs of the body.
Therefore, as a matter of course, this disease shows
complicated and variable symptoms.
In the view of traditional Chinese medicine, this disease is caused by heat toxin in the
blood. The focus of treatment is generally placed on having the pathogenic evil
dispelled and the symptoms alleviated during the acute phase, when Spearlor,
Safbrain and Salubry may be administered, but the focus is moved to replenishment of
deficiency and tackling of the root cause of the disease during the phase of remission,
when Holisticare may be added. The method of treatment should be altered in
accordance with the concrete clinical manifestations of the disease in order to get
good therapeutic results.

Allergies
A person who is susceptible to allergies also may prepare for him/herself a glass of
sour fruit juice or tomato juice. After drinking the glass of sour juice, he/she needs
to take Toniyin, which will prevent blood capillaries from expanding in diameter and
thereby cause remission of allergies.
Feales is best for the treatment of allergies.

Gynecologic diseases
Leukorrhagia
If leukorrhea (white vaginal discharge) is discovered to have abnormally increased,
the best policy is to go to hospital in good time to have a relevant examination made,
so as to exclude the possibility of having contracted a disease and to be sure of ones
good health. If certain microbes have been found to be involved, Aegiseme needs to
be taken. However, if routine examination of leukorrhea fails to find the probable
pathogenic microbe, attention should be paid to any advice which might be given by
traditional Chinese medical scholars, because they would likely say that the main
cause of the symptom is weakness of spleen and kidneys and that Inwarmer ought to
be taken for regulation of spleen and stomach and for nourishment of the kidneys,
which are suffering from insufficiency.

46

Candidiasis
Scholars of traditional Chinese medicine would likely consider candidiasis in the
lower reproductive tract to be the outcome of a tangle of damp heat in the body,
aggravated by some external pathogenic evil. Damp heat is what is called the
endogenous factor in traditional Chinese medicine, and the pathogenic evil the
exogenous factor. The endogenous and the exogenous factors interact on each other,
causing the disease to linger on for a long time.
In the course of treatment,
preparations used in traditional Chinese medicine may be adopted by selection on the
basis of the disease manifestations, for application either to the entire body or to a
locality. The ultimate criterion for judging success of the treatment of the vaginitis is
elimination of inflammation, strengthening of the organisms immunity, and
maintenance of an environment of acid-base balance in the vagina.

Premenstrual syndrome
Menstruation is connected with heart, liver, spleen and kidneys---four of what
Chinese people popularly call the five internal organs. Therefore, the premenstrual
syndrome, which often comes in company with the menses, has manifestations which
are also connected with the four internal organs. If the connection is with heart and
liver, the manifestations will be being in a bad mood, being apt to get angry,
having a headache or suffering from insomnia. If the connection is with spleen
insufficiency or renal insufficiency, the manifestations will be diarrhea, edema, and in
very few individuals red itching rubella, oral ulceration, joint pain, or simple fever.
The ready-made traditional Chinese medicines recommended by us may be taken for
regulation of the body.

Dysmenorrhea
Dysmenorrhea was divided by scholars of traditional Chinese medicine dialectically
into five syndrome patterns, of which the first pattern broke up later into two. The
six patterns are described below.
qi-stagnation dysmenorrhea: a type of dysmenorrhea caused by emotional
depression and marked by distending pain in the lower abdomen accompanied
by discomfort and distention in the chest and breasts before or during
menstruation.
Blood-stasis dysmenorrhea:
a type of dysmenorrhea characterized by a
stabbing pain in the lower abdomen (which becomes tender) before or during
menstruation with little menstrual discharge, the pain being usually alleviated
by a discharge of blood clots.
Cold-congealing dysmenorrhea: a type of dysmenorrhea marked by sluggish
menstrual flow with a cold feeling and pain in the lower abdomen, which can
be alleviated by warmth.
Damp-heat dysmenorrhea: a type of dysmenorrhea accompanied by
leukorrhagia with yellowish discharge.

qi-blood-deficiency dysmenorrhea: a type of dysmenorrhea marked by a


negligible amount of thin and pink-colored menstrual flow associated with
persistent dull pain in the lower abdomen, which usually occurs during the late
period of menstruation and can be alleviated by pressing.
Kidney-insufficiency dysmenorrhea: a type of dysmenorrhea caused by a
congenital defect, early marriage, intemperate sexual life or multiple deliveries,
and usually accompanied by dizziness, aching in the loins and weakness of
legs.
Administration of Aegiseme and Inwarmer can produce a good effect.

Pelvic inflammation
Pelvic inflammation is a gynecologic disease which is often encountered.
Traditional Chinese medicine divides it into five syndrome patterns, two of which are
described below.
Damp-heat down-pouring syndrome: a syndrome marked by frequent and
painful urination, a yellow fetid discharge from the vagina, and/or morbid
leukorrhea in pelvic infections.
Stagnant-blood retention syndrome: a syndrome in which the chief role belongs
to blood stasis, which is a pathological product of blood stagnation, but this
syndrome includes in its scope extravasated blood and blood moving sluggishly
in circulation or congested at a part in the lower reproductive tract, all of which
may turn into pathogenic factors.
For the damp-heat down-pouring syndrome, Aegiseme and Toniyin may be taken with
benefit; and for the stagnant-blood retention syndrome, Safbrain may be taken in
addition. These herbal products can be taken in cordination with Western medicines
so as to achieve both a temporary solution and a permanent cure.

Endometriosis
Scholars of traditional Chinese medicine are of the opinion that this disease is closely
connected with the menstrual cycle and that the principal method of treatment should
be by activating the blood, resolving the stases already formed, regulating the flow of
vital energy, and alleviating pain. In order to achieve these purposes, the patient
needs to take Aegiseme and Safbrain. Besides, regulation of spleen and stomach is
also indispensable.

Habitual abortion
If a miscarriage has already happened, Aegiseme and Safbrain need to be taken to
clear the body of extravasated blood. If it is still early enough to prevent the
miscarriage and save the fetus, Gui Pills, Holisticare and Salubry may be used to
replenish blood and vital energy and reinforce life power.

48

Bleeding after artificial abortion


In order to stop bleeding and relieve pain, the woman should take Aegiseme and
Safbrain first to clear the body of extravasated blood, then take Holisticare and
Salubry to replenish vitality and reinforce life power.

Infertility
If the infertility is due to obstruction of the Fallopian tube, Aegiseme and Safbrain
may be taken, and that will produce a good effect.
If the case is one of primary infertility, then Sanlida needs to be taken to promote
microcirculations in the reproductive system, and Gui Pills, Kilimend and Salubry
may be taken to replenish blood and tonify kidneys so as to strengthen and rectify the
function of sex hormones.

Mastofibroma
From the point of view of traditional Chinese medicine, besides hormonal imbalance,
it is the dual deficiency of blood and vital energy in women which entails disorder of
blood and vital energy in breasts that eventually causes the formation of
mastofibromas. If herbal medicines which are capable of warming phlegm-damp as
well as qi and blood, such as Aegiseme and Inwarmer, are used, they ought to be able
to cure this disease, i.e. mastofibroma. By the same token, because traditional
Chinese medical scholars say that harmony in internal organs, the thriving of
healthiness, and the equilibrium of yin and yang are the basic guarantee of the human
bodys physical well-being, Salubry should also be taken.

Involutional syndrome
Traditional Chinese medicine treats diseases connected with the climacteric by
disentangling first of all the knot in the heart, which means helping a patient get rid
of all nonsensical misgivings and fears and keep an optimitic frame of mind. The next
step is to make the patient regulate his/her body by the principle of nourishing the
liver and kidneys and enhancing vitality and tonifying blood, according to his/her
economic circumstances, and engage in appropriate physical exercises.

Diseases of skin and skeleton


Eczema
The incidence of skin disease is due chiefly to blood and skin having lost their normal
compositional structure and, therefore, become unable to perform their functions.
Traditional Chinese medicine treats skin disease by combining the therapeutic task at
49

hand with the care of lungs, spleen, and kidneys at the same time, and is thus in a
position to give a hope of life to the blood in question and restore to it its normal
composition and its ability to perform its rightful functions. In this way the skin, or
rather the cells that have necrotized, will fall off, and a new, normal skin will come
out, with eczema and whatever other skin diseases involved having healed up.
The principal cause of subacute eczema is the retention of damp-heat. The treatment
should place the focus on nourishment of the spleen and carry out heat-clearance and
detoxication (by Feales and Spearlor), strengthening of spleen and elimination of
damp (by Inwarmer). Salubry may be added for better effect.

Acne vulgaris
Although acne vulgaris appears on the skin surface, it is actually a manifestation of
latent heat in the internal organs and is connected with sebum and the infestation of
follicles with bacteria and parasites. Traditional Chinese medicine divides acne
vulgaris into three types, which are treated respectively by clearing the body of
damp-heat ( should take Spearlor), by diminishing inflammation and by dissolving
the hard nodules (should add Aegiseme). For patients of acne vulgaris of a very
grave type, such as cystic acne vulgaris, and for patients of stubborn skin diseases,
better therapeutic effects can be achieved by taking Safbrain and Aegiseme
additionally.
Spearlor is suitable for eliminating the acne on a young persons face (known by the
vulgar name of acne unmentionable) and for healing eczema and skin inflammation.
Four weeks make one course of treatment.
Middle-aged women can take Aegiseme for eliminating chloasma and acne.

Osteoporosis
There is an aphorism in traditional Chinese medicine: Kidneys govern bone and the
skeleton. The thriving or decline of the renal essence has a close bearing on the
growth and metabolism of bone and the skeleton. Roughly speaking, osteoporosis
occurs after menopause, in middle-aged or old women. As the internal organs begin
losing their power of performing their respective functions after menopause, the
spleen and stomach become weak and cannot provide enough nutrients to nourish
themselves and the other organs, thereby inducing renal insufficiency. If renal essence
should become deficient, the skeleton will be deprived of adequate nutrition, with
aggravation of osteoporosis following in the wake, as an inevitable consequence.
Therefore, the principle of Nourishing the kidneys and strengthening the spleen and
stomach has been put forward for treatment of osteoporosis. Femegain and Toniyin
can render great help for decelerating the progress of osteoporosis.

50

Rheumatoid arthritis
In the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, rheumatoid arthritis arises from liver,
spleen and kidneys being deficient in vital energy and blood. The basic method of
treatment, therefore, consists in eliminating blood stases, relieving pain and resolving
phlegm-turbidity. 1. As this disease is very stubborn, it is not enough to take
Safbrain alone. Sanlida must be used to break through impeded venous and arterial
microcirculations in order that some remission of the illness may be achieved. A
comprehensive treatment and regulation of the body from both inside and outside is
indispensable.
2.The medicinals in the Acherid will concert their forces and drive the pathogenic
factors out of the body. Taking Acherid and Coldcurer together is best treatment way.
Acute rheumatic arthritis with dreadful swelling and pain, for which Acherid is to be
administered 3 times a day (at 2 pieces each time). The pain and swelling will
vanish in 10 days.

Osteoarthritis
According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, the liver governs muscle
while the kidneys govern bone and the skeleton. The main cause of osteoarthritis is
hepatic and renal insufficiency bringing about lack of nourishment for the muscle and
the bone. The manifestation, in most cases, is seen as blood vessels being impeded
by stagnant blood. When the arteries and veins are not completely free for passage,
there is pain where any impediment exists. Therefore, the chief therapeutic principle
ought to be Nourish and tonify liver and kidneys, activate blood and resolve stases,
break through impeded arteries and veins, and stop pain.
For this purpose,
Aegiseme and Inwarmer may be administered, in combination with traditional
Chinese physiotherapy.

Ankylosing spondylitis
In treating ankylosing spondylitis traditional Chinese medicine adheres to the
principle of nourishing the kidneys, strengthening the loins, and unblocking
collaterals to alleviate pain. Treatment by this principle can succeed in putting the
disease under control, reducing pain and preventing deformity.
Activities are very important to a patient of ankylosing spondylitis, because they are
helpful in maintaining a certain range of movement of the spine and thus improving
the quality of existence.
Acherid can not only replenish a persons decreased vitality and generate the requisite
body fluids but can also pass through the twelve main channels of the human meridian
system, acting both inside and outside, so as to stop pain in the chest and abdomen,
which is often due to blood stasis, and pain in the limbs, which is often due to
obstruction by cold-damp.
Moreover, it can reach, by virtue of the innate power of the medicinals, any
intracranial damage that happens to exist and carry out the repair physically, though in
51

many cases a depressive state of mind may masquerade as severe headache, on which
occasion Acherid will serve as a simple analgesic and relieve the pain speedily.
Acute sciatica and emergency-period herniated disc, for either of which
administration of Acherid is to be carried out orally at 2 times a day (3 pieces a time).
Relief from pain is likely to ensue on that very day, and complete healing can be
achieved in 10 days.

Psoriasis
The theory of traditional Chinese medicine maintains that the lungs govern the skin
and that the true root cause of psoriasis is disequilibrium of yin and yang in the five
internal organs and, so, the problem of treatment of this skin disease needs to be
handled dialectically--- from the angle of the whole body. Generally speaking, for
treating psoriasis traditional Chinese medicine employs therapeutic methods which
can be summed up as (1) nourishing blood and moistening dryness and (2)
heat-clearance and detoxication. For relieving the gravity of this skin disease
Feales, Spearlor and Inwarmer have proved to be of some help.

Cancer
Cancer
Cancer that occurs in the form of one or more tumors usually grows at a certain part
of the body, but it is actually a systemic disease. For a great number of cancer
patients, local treatment or even excision cannot solve the problem radically. The
dominant view in traditional Chinese medicine concerning the treatment of cancer is
that cancer is caused by toxic substances running rampant in the blood and treatment
should be conducted first by cooling the blood to get rid of the heat toxin, next by
reinforcing the vitality of spleen and stomach so as to strengthen the life power of the
patient, and finally by providing the patient with proper regulation including rich
nourishment. This view is convincing in that it agrees with the findings of modern
science, especially in respect to the existence of toxic substances as the cause of the
growth of cancer. This can be seen from Science Desk Reference (1995) of the New
York Public Library, in which it is stated on page 192 that When normal cells
suddenly become abnormal, grow too quickly, consume large amounts of the bodys
energy, and produce toxic substances, they are often referred to as cancer cells.
Thus, it may be deduced that elimination of toxic substances in the blood is an
important step in the cure of cancer. If a person happens to have an inexplicable
pain somewhere in his/her body that has persisted for a considerable time in spite of
all the efforts made to cure the body of it or if he/she has got inexplicably a sensation
similar to that of osteoporosis but worsening at a higher speed, he/she may well take
some tonic of good standing, such as Salubry and Feales, continually or intermittently,
for no other purpose than that of doing an experiment in connection with cancer
treatment. During and after radiotherapy Holisticare and Gui Pills should be taken.

Table of Regulated Prescriptions


In the Table of Regulated Prescriptions, the products of the Company are
arranged according to their drug properties from the left side to the right,
with those having the hot property placed on the left side, those having the
intermediate property in the middle, and those having the cool property on the right
side, the background color being used to serve as a hint. Red color represents the
medicine being warm or hot; absence of color represents the medicine being
intermediate in regard to drug property; and blue color represents the medicine being
cool in drug property.
If a product having a very hot or very cold property is taken alone, all by itself, for a
very long time, the bodys yin and yang equilibrium will be subjected to a bad
influence. For this reason, in taking traditional Chinese medicines you need to
observe the instructions of the said pamphlet so as to keep a proper balance between
yin and yang during a long period of administration. As for drugs which are
intermediate or nearly intermediate between hot and cool they can be taken all by
themselves.
When you are taking any of these Chinese herbal medicines, you must control
your alcohol drinking. Otherwise, the therapeutic effect will be adversely
affected.Those who are weak in constitution must refrain from indulgence in
sex, so that their diseases might not be aggravated.

A Momentous Development in TCM


Advent of the System of Disease-entity Identification
The idea of conducting treatment of a disease on the basis of overall analysis of
symptoms and signs, including the cause, nature and location of the illness and the
patients physical condition, is the crystallization of thousands of years of medical
practice in China and has served for centuries as the guiding theoretical principle of
traditional Chinese medicine in both prophylaxis and disease treatment.
This type of treatment, which is based on initial identification of the pattern of the
disease being treated and which stresses that the diagnosis be made by observing the
organisms reflection in its entirety, embodies a mode of clinical thinking that
advocates individualization in diagnosis and treatment.
People of the modern era adore precise and objective data.
They think that
diagnoses and treatments in traditional Chinese medicine are vague, abstract and
replete with subjectivities. For this reason, the Public Health Ministry of China has
long since included in the State Plan of Subjects for Priority Research the topic of
How to raise the precision of Disease Pattern Identification in traditional Chinese
medicine.
From qualitative description to quantitative analysis is universally acknowledged as
the path along which a science must travel in its development. On the premise of
strict conformity with the theoretical system of traditional Chinese medicine and the
paramount rule of giving treatment on the basis of disease pattern identification,
experts in traditional Chinese medicine arranged and studied information from three
sources: the immense ancient and contemporary Chinese medical literature; the
summing-up records and reports of famous traditional Chinese medical scholars
experience in disease pattern identification and cases of their successful treatments;
and the records of epidemiologic investigations. Information processing technology
was employed to combine and quantify the
information from these sources, whereby
quantified data, the parameters of disease
pattern identification, were obtained and used
in compilation of the Quantitative Syndrome
Differentiation Table.
After many years of hard work, the experts in
traditional Chinese medicine were able to
establish the Disease-entity Identification
Research Platform supported technically by a
databank. They created the disease-entity
identification system.
What after all is the disease-entity
identification system? The symptoms and
bodily signs which a patient presents are what

59

differentiation and identification depend on for diagnostic work. They are called
syndrome manifestation.
The essential pathological character of the disease
ascertained through differentiation and identification carried out on the syndrome
manifestation is called the disease-entity. The name used in diagnoses formed by
combining the designation of the location of the disease with the disease-entity is
termed the disease name. Recognition of the disease-entity by differentiation of it
from other items is the key to the success of identification, whereas determination of
the disease name is the object striven for.
The syndrome manifestation, the
disease-entity and the disease name form a complex structure and constitute together
the disease-entity identification system, which reveals the natural law that governs it
and the substance and characteristics of the differentiation and identification work.
It is a significant academic development in the science of traditional Chinese
medicine.
TCM Intelligent Diagnostic-therapeutic Software
On the basis of the Quantitative Syndrome Differentiation Table and the principle of
disease-entity identification, a databank has been established containing the
knowledge of TCM syndrome differentiation and treatment; a computer operation
program has been compiled according to the rules of logical thinking; and an
intelligent computer-operated TCM diagnostic-therapeutic system has been brought
into being. It is a huge system covering the entire area of traditional Chinese
medical care, including fields, such as internal diseases, gynecology and pediatrics,
for the purpose of helping traditional Chinese medical practitioners make diagnoses
and carry out treatments.
The system has been so compiled as to contain 1,000 symptoms, 460 diseases, 60
disease-entities, 1,700 normative disease pattern models, 720 often-used traditional
Chinese medicinals, and 670 traditional Chinese medicinal prescriptions. For the
diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disease-entities, this intelligent system can
provide 10 therapeutic projects to each applicant for diagnosis and treatment, so as to
help doctors make the optimum diagnostic and therapeutic decisions.
TCM Telemedicine
Taking into consideration the fact that the diagnoses
and therapeutic plans provided by the TCM
Intelligent Diagnostic-Therapeutic System are high in
accuracy and normative in contents, this Company is
planning to adopt it ( the Intelligent
Diagnostic-Therapeutic System ) as the Companys
supplementary diagnostic and therapeutic instrument
in TCM Telemedicine, so as to provide the broad
masses of patients and subhealthy people with service
which is more individualized.
