The present edition is a revision of the second edition published in 2005. As its name implies, this book is intended to give the foundations of the principles of Chinese medicine: it is therefore only the beginning in the journey of learning this ancient art. There are of course, very many different traditions of Chinese medicine and especially, acupuncture: I hope that this book can provide a ‘foundation’ from which a practitioner can build and branch out in different directions. My main sources (indicated in the bibliography) for this book are modern Chinese textbooks and some ancient ones and in particular the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine (Simple Questions Su Wen and Spiritual Axis Ling Shu) and the Classic of Difficulties (Nan Jing). I have tried to present the theory of Chinese medicine from Chinese books but I have also occasionally presented my own experience gleaned from nearly 40 years of practice. Whenever I present my own experience, I precede this with the statement ‘in my experience’ or ‘in my opinion’. It is worth mentioning the main changes made in the second edition: 1. An expanded discussion of the functions of the Pericardium 2. An expanded discussion of the functions and nature of the Triple Burner 3. An expanded discussion of external pathogenic factors both as causes of disease and as patterns 4. An expanded section on Diagnosis 5. A new section on pathology (chapters 27, 28 and 29) 6.
