In China, there are over 41 different lineages of Zhang Zhong Jing’s classical texts recorded by Dr. Wang Qing Guo at the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, confirming the multiple branches of this classical gem. Our lineage of this classical system was kept alive with the teachings of Dr. Feng Shi Lun (冯世伦) who received his knowledge from Professor Hu Xi Shu (胡希恕), which learned from the master eunuch Wang Xiang Wei (王祥微). Generation after generation, this clinical gem was kept alive, while its understanding continued to develop and expand.
Dr. Suzanne Robidoux has been practicing herbal medicine for the last two decides. She has spent the last 5 years in China with Dr. Feng and this classical system of clinically application Zhang Zhong Jing’s teaching.
