Essentials of Chinese Medicine

In this new selection of core texts, Richard presents a translation of the key writings for students and practitioners of Chinese medicine in the Huangdi Neijing or ‘the Yellow Emperor’s Medical Classic’, the ancient, definitive set of Chinese medical books. I have selected the core of the long and often impenetrable Huangdi Neijing, vital for students to know and understand today.

Taking eminent Ming doctor and scholar Li Zhongzi’s selection of texts as basis, I have included additional texts on topics such as the spirit in treatment, resonance with nature, the art of needling, and Five Elemental body and personality types; adding also the comments made by other Chinese commentators, for the first time in translation.
