Dr Song Weishe

Traditional Chinese Medicine

We are lucky to have a very fine Traditional Chinese doctor in Canterbury, Dr Song, Wei Shi. He and I have found that his treatments and the Tai Chi, Qigong and Neigong work extremely well together.

It is traditional to visit the doctor when you are well to prevent yourself for getting ill. The Huang Di Nei Jing, the oldest medical text in the world, says:

The person who is already sick and then takes medicine,
or who is already disordered and then seeks treatment,
is comparable to one who is thirsty and then digs a well,
or one who forges weapons only after the war has begun.
Are these measures not also late!

(The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic Book 1 Chapter 2)
