我学中医-总结 (一)

中国医学已有数千年的历史,这证明了它在医学界有着举足轻重的地位。中医学是中国人长期与疾病作斗争的经验总结,所以它是一项自然科学。

中国医学经过战国,秦,东汉,魏晋南北朝,唐,宋,金,元,明,清贤人的分类与整合,更深受古代哲学思想的影响,并与其他学科的互相参透,形成一种独特的医学理论系统。

基于哲学理论与自然科学的结合,中医学里有很多时候是只能意会,而不能明言的。有鉴于此,经验在中医学是一种必需的条件。

再者,中医学偏于从宏观的角度去认识疾病,就是所谓的整体观念。所以,中医学的第一个重要内容就是“气”。宇宙的一切物质皆始于气。这清楚说明了世界是气的产物,万物的运动都是气运动的体现,万物的变化都是气变化的结果。

总而言之,中医学不是从天而降,也非无中生有,而是大自然生活的一部分。

Haa haa... I am a big fan of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I'm just a patient not a sutdent yet, hope to be one in the future.

Currently seeing one near my place for my stomach problem. I think there are improvement.

And I think there is a great potential in Traditional Chinese Medicine in time to come.

Btw, any recommendations on book on the topic for self-learning?
