Zhang Zhong Jing the author of Shang Han Za Bing Lun in the Eastern Han era (circa 190- 210 AD) is regarded as a sage and pioneer of traditional Chinese medicine. Zhang Zhong Jing based his theory on the concept of six channel pattern differentiation found in Su Wen: Re Lun (Su Wen Chapter 31: Discourse on Heat), Zhang Zhong Jing identified a range of patterns, which he then analysed and differentiated according to their pathogenesis and symptomatology, describing various pattern changes associated with externally contracted disease. Thus he provided an innovative and comprehensive system of Six Channel pattern differentiation. As a contemporary TCM practitioners, one should not mechanically inherit the theory and treatment strategies of Shang Han Lun instead, we should comprehend and capture the essence of Shang Han Lun and Jin Gui Yao Lue’s treatment strategies.
The contemporary application of Jing Fang is based on the development of modern diseases, the pathogenesis and key symptoms to determine the optimum selection of Jing Fang. In recent years, researches on modern pharmacology of Chinese medicine has achieved important results. Most of the results on herbs can be combined with the traditional Chinese Medicine pattern identification to enhance the chemical indicators of many contemporary diseases. In sort, the objective of our two live webinars is to share with the attendees some of the targeted herbs and dosages based on recent years researches on pharmacology to fast track the clinical outcome.
Ways of improving physical and chemical indicators of modern diseases with Chinese medicine:
With the advent of modern researches on single Chinese herbs, this has provided a platform for treatment of chronic disease with no significant symptoms, while the addition of a couple of single herbs can significantly improve the chemical indicators.
For example, abnormal blood lipids is a prevalent condition of metabolic abnormality, the targeted treatment strategy is to alleviate turbidity by using herbs such as Hong Qu, Shan Za and Wu Gu Chong 五谷虫 etc. Likewise, bitter and sour herbs have similar effect on the reduction of blood sugar for diabetes patients. Frequently used herbs are Huang Lian, Huang Qin, Da Huang, Zhi Mu and Cang Zhu.
Treatment with anti-rheumatic drugs such as Wei Ling Xian, Qin Pi and Qin Jiao for management of damp bi can promote the fast excretion of uric acid, lower the blood uric acid which in turn can effectively contain the further deterioration of the disorder.
