Dr. Liu Lihong has become a household name in China since the publication of Sikao zhongyi, his inspirational best-seller on Chinese medicine 18 years ago (available in English translation under the title Classical Chinese Medicine). Originally an expert in herbal medicine, Dr. Liu has recently shifted his educational and clinical focus to a Daoist system of acupuncture called Huangdi Neizhen (The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Transmission of Acupuncture). In this month’s presentation he will share some of his insights into the art and science of classical acupuncture and the Neizhen system in particular.

The organization of the 12 organ systems into 3 yang pairs and 3 yin pairs and the associated system of six conformation diagnostics (liujing bianzheng) remains one of the less explored areas of contemporary Chinese medicine. Twenty five years ago, Dr. Liu Lihong wrote one of China's first doctoral dissertations in the field of Chinese medicine on the six conformation approach to diagnosis and therapy. Since then, he has become known for his deep and clinically relevant lectures on this classical system that was first outlined in the Neijing and Shanghan lan.

TRANSLATED BY TAN WEIWU AND ERIN MORELAND

Does the level of competence of doctors working in various Chinese medicine institutions today reflect the actual potential of Chinese medicine? And just what is this potential? Where do the apexes of Chinese medicine lie? Were they attained in ancient times or in recent times?
