Background and Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine


Around 200 years b. c. the basic tenets of Chinese medicine were recorded in a classic work, the Huang Di Nei Jing, the Yellow Emperor’s textbook of physical medicine.

They saw man as an integral part of nature and in a state of intensive interaction with his environment. Nature is in a constant state of change and continuous development.
