CHIN 299 - Chinese Medical Culture and Practice

Chinese medicine as a full-bodied version (not a part) of Chinese culture was first recorded in The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic dating back to the 5th century BC. Interrelating astronomy, cosmology, nature-human correspondence, seasonal climates’ impact on health, lifestyle adjustments, acupuncture, herbs, medical ethics and other topics, this text remains the cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) today. The book’s broad and inter-defining perspectives set the tones for Chinese medical culture as a whole, further innovated throughout the ages up to the present day in and beyond China including our own New York State through the practice, teaching, and research of acupuncture.
