Ancient Wisdom

The study of Chinese medicine is, more specifically, the study of life.  While the historical date of the origin of Chinese medicine is up for debate, its recorded history dates back approximately 2000 years.  Chinese medicine is inextricably bound to ancient Chinese philosophy and, in particular, the philosophies of yinyang and the five elements.  Initially, these concepts may appear archaic to modern minds, but they are actually quite deep.  This site explores the depth of this ancient wisdom as elucidated in the Nei Jing and other classical texts.
