The Shang Han Lun system, also known as the Treatise on Cold Damage Disorders, is an ancient Chinese medical system that dates back to the Han Dynasty. It is a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating various conditions based on the principles of Jing Fang herbal medicine.
The Shang Han Lun system utilises a six-division system of diagnosis and treatment. When a person seeks treatment, their signs and symptoms are carefully assessed and categorised into one or multiple divisions. These divisions are based on specific patterns of disharmony within the body, which are identified through a thorough examination of the patient’s pulse, tongue, and abdomen.
Each division corresponds to a specific set of formulas that have been developed over centuries of clinical practice. These formulas are precisely prescribed to address the unique pattern of disharmony identified in the patient. By tailoring the treatment to the individual rather than simply targeting the disease, the Shang Han Lun system aims to promote the body’s natural ability to restore health and achieve homeostasis.
This personalised approach is one of the key strengths of the Shang Han Lun system. By taking into account the specific manifestations and underlying imbalances within each individual, practitioners can provide a more precise and effective treatment. This approach recognises that each person is unique and that their symptoms and imbalances may differ even if they present with the same disease.
By utilising the Shang Han Lun system, practitioners can offer a holistic and tailored treatment that not only addresses the symptoms but also targets the root causes of the condition. This comprehensive approach promotes balance and harmony within the body, supporting the body’s innate healing capacity and facilitating the restoration of health.
