As early as the 3rd century, Zhang Ji recorded many diagnostic skills and formulas to treat tai yin disease which are applicable today. This presentation will classify information about tai yin disease in the Shang Han Lun into two categories: disorders completely belonging to tai yin disease and disorders partially belonging to tai yin disease. It will also discuss how to identify them according to Guohui Liu’s experience. He will analyze the formulas in detail. Case studies will be used to demonstrate how to manage these diagnostic skills and treatment approaches in clinical practice.
