Ever since I was a little kid, I knew I wanted to be a doctor but I soon learned that Industrial Medicine wasn't the path for me. The principles, practices, descriptions and techniques described in the Chinese Medical classics and brought alive by our modern teachers is nothing short of a miraculous poetry giving us a glimpse into the invisible inner workings of the universe. And some of this is even useful for helping people recover from illness, which is wonderful.
