Qing Dynasty medical practitioner Chen Xiuyuan was arguably the most important educator of Chinese medicine until the arrival of Communism in 1949. Even until the 1970's, his works were used by students and teachers alike in the study of Chinese medicine.
In this lecture series, Andrew Nugent-Head discusses line by line Chen Xiuyuan's incredibly famous Three Character Classic for the Study of Medicine. He not only translates every line, but also translates and elucidates Chen Xiuyuan's own commentary on the meaning of each three character stanza. This course gives non Chinese speakers direct access to a critical book on the study of Chinese medicine without having to learn the language.
Part 1 is the Source and Flow of Medical History.
Part 2 covers diagnosis and treatment for Struck by Wind, the traditional term for a CVA.
Part 3 covers diagnosis and treatment for Consumptive Diseases.
