We must first grasp the essence, Chinese medicine is not just “empirical medicine"
When tutoring my youngest son in the fifth grade of mathematics, the following questions appeared:
There are 29 white balls and 21 black balls of the same size in the bag. Every time the magician takes out two balls from the bag and puts them out, if the two balls are of the same color, he puts another black ball into the bag. If the two balls are of different colors, put the other one. Put the white ball back into the bag. After doing this 48 times, how many balls are left in the bag? What color are they?
When I saw it for the first time, “What the hell is it? Isn’t this a chance question to be learned only in junior high schools? How can it be used for children in the fifth grade? It really hurts my kid and embarrass us!"
In desperation, I had to go online to check the answer on Baidu. After reading it, I suddenly realized that what people tested was not the probability of the test, but whether they grasped the nature of the change.
Each time two balls are taken out, one will be stuffed back. When the two balls are of different colors, the white balls will be stuffed back, causing the number of white balls to remain unchanged.
When two balls are of the same color, the white ball will definitely be taken out, so the white ball will decrease in an even number.
48 balls will be taken away in 48 times, a total of 50 balls, there will be 2 in the end, and the white balls were originally odd numbers, but the even numbers are reduced, and only 1 ball is left, so it must be 1 black ball and 1 White balls.
Look, it’s simple. People originally considered the current nature and the changed nature.
In fact, this is not the case when seeing a doctor? There are millions of diseases, and when you encounter them, you have to grasp the essence of the current situation.
Chinese medicine is not just empirical medicine
A few days ago, I saw a Chinese medicine doctor wrote in his book that Chinese medicine is “empirical medicine." At first glance, there is nothing wrong with it. Except for the guidance of the master, experience is indeed important in the field of Chinese medicine.
But “empirical medicine" is a term with special meaning. It means “experience but no theory." Does Chinese medicine have no theoretical system?
It took five to seven years for the University of Chinese Medicine to cultivate. Isn’t it just these theories of Chinese medicine that allow beginners to quickly grasp the essence of the problems encountered in clinical Chinese medicine through these theories?
Ancient chinese physicians used yin and yang as the general outline, together with the exterior and interior, cold and heat, as well as the deficiency and actuality, to form the Eight Principal , which constituted the Eight Principal syndrome differentiation system recognized by later generations, used to grasp the eight essential problems in the process of disease change. In essence, you can easily control the complex with simplicity. To solve the current essential problems.
The fascinating thing about Chinese medicine is that after being able to find the essence, it can solve various entanglements one by one like Pao Ding solves a cow. This is the case for curing diseases and health preservation.
