Jin Gui Yao Lue - Essential Prescriptions of the Golden Cabinet Product information Wiseman, N./ Wilms, S./ Feng Ye

This first chapter describes the causes and pathomechanisms of disease of the bowels and viscera and of the channels and network vessels, the sequence in which their occur, and the pulses and signs by which they are recognized. It forms a general introduction to the Jin Gui as a whole. Short as it is, it covers a broad range of subjects including prevention of disease, causes of disease, pathomechanisms, diagnostics, principles of treatment, nursing, and prognosis and provides copious examples.
The contents are broad-ranging, but throughout the emphasis is on the holistic view of health and disease, stressing not only the relationship between the human body and outside world, but the unity within the body. The interdependence and counterbalancing between the bowels and viscera, and between the channels and network vessels explain the ways in which they interact in disease. Disease in one bowel or viscus can transfer to another bowel or viscus. Disease in one channel can transfer to another. Evils contracted through the channels and network vessels can pass into the bowels and viscera. Disease of the bowels and viscera can manifest at positions on the pathways of the channels and network vessels.
