Shang Han Lun: The Great Classic of Chinese Medicine
By Hong-yen Hsu, Ph.D. & William G. Peacher, M.D.
Two basic therapies that exist in the modern world to treat disease are Chinese medicine and modern Western medicine. The former practices whole body treatment while the latter focuses on localized diagnosis and treatment. The Shang Han Lun (Treatise on Febrile Disease), written by Chang Chung-Ching in the early part of the third century, comprises a significant part of Chinese medical theory and practice. Unlike The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, an earlier classic devoted to theory only, the Shang Han Lun illuminates the practical application of Chinese herbal formulas. This book marks the first English publication of the classic.
