Alternative medicine and holistic healing are based off of concepts and philosophies of an ancient science. At the root of many holistic practices are the philosophies and ideals that come from Chinese medicine. From the beginnings of this practice has been a growth in natural methods to help promote healing and balance.
The beginnings of Chinese medicine as a practice come from the year 800 BC. Even though this practice began before this, it was only recorded beginning in this year through a book known as the “Huang Di Nei Jeng” or “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine.” The methods that were used in this book were based around the herbal remedies that were most significant in helping with holistic healing.
The idea of this particular book was based off of the Yellow Emperor, one of the greatest rulers in Chinese history. He is thought to have lived in 4700 BC, and is often attributed as a mythical character with a status of royalty that provided inspiration to those living in the orient. It is through this mythical character that this book of medicine is still portrayed under, with the attribution to the Yellow Emperor’s knowledge that was passed down holistically.
