Never has it been more timely to read and understand the the Shanghan Lun from a clinical perspective. It has always been the most important treatment book to turn to when faced with serious illness, when a patient hangs in the balance, and a correct diagnosis returns a patient to health while a wrong choice hastens their decline. This was a book written at a time when Influenzas ravaged the Han Dynasty for over 10 years and reflects all of the experience Zhang Zhongjing gathered through that period. More than just a book of formulas, the Shanghan Lun contains the symptoms and pulses to look for in order to choose a correct formula, outlines the treatment mistakes to avoid, and teaches how to save a patient when the wrong treatment was given. As we see a return of epidemic and pandemic illnesses such as SARS, H1N1 and COVID19 along with more virulent flu seasons year after year, learning to treat rapid onset illnesses with potentially fatal outcomes has never been more important to the modern practitioner of Chinese medicine.

In this course, Andrew Nugent-Head not only reads the Chinese and then translates the original text line by line, character by character, but also translates the seminal commentaries of Yuan Dynasty Cheng Wuji to help understand the meanings and strategies laid down by Zhang Zhongjing. Andrew, who spent 28 years living in China and studying with the last generation of practitioners born and educated prior to 1949, also elucidates the text from the perspective of years of clinical practice treating serious illnesses with his teachers and on his own. Whether you speak Chinese or not, his entire focus is on making the book completely accessible to the clinically focused practitioner of Chinese medicine and building the knowledge to practice full strength Chinese medicine.
