The origin of Chinese Medicine can be traced back to The Yellow Emperor's Inner Classic, a book believed to have been written 2500 years ago. The book was a series of Q&A sessions between the Yellow Emperor and his mentor Qi-Bo, a great medicine man at the time. In the book, the men described in detail of their understanding of the human body, it's relationship with nature, and how living in harmony with nature allows us to stay healthy and achieve longevity. They also laid out the fundamentals of the art of diagnosing and treating diseases in Chinese Medicine. For thousands of years this book has served as the classic text which anyone who wishes to practice Chinese Medicine must read.
