In this course, Dr. Young discusses his study and interpretation to Shang Han Lun. Shang Han Lun is a one of the greatest classical medical treatise in the history of Chinese Medicine. It was compiled by Dr. Zhang, Zhong-Jing towards the end of the Eastern Han dynasty period. As the cornerstone of Chinese Medicine, it was the first school of thought to introduce the concept of pattern differentiation and its corresponding treatment protocols. From time to time, the mastery of Shang Han Lun is essential for any scholar or practitioner whom wishes to master Chinese Medicine. Shang Han Lun is a masterpiece assimilated from the contributions of many top physicians from the previous dynasties (Qin Han dynasty).
