Recently I posted a short interview with Dr. Stephen Boyanton (PhD) about his research examining a number of epidemiological factors taking place during the time the Shang Han Lun was compiled and how those factors influenced its rise in popularity, fame and usefulness. In this lecture on the emergence of the Wen Bing school (the school of Warm Disease Theory) sheds further incite into how the Shang Han Lung text (Treaties On Cold Theory) was complied and rose to such great fame.

If you are unfamilar with this book the Shang Han Lun was complied around the year 200 by a Chinese physician named Zhang Zhonjing. It is one of the oldest clinical text books in the worlds and covers a number of herbal formulas used for the treatment of infectious disease.  The research by Dr. Stephen Boyanton (PhD) examines a number of epidemiological factors taking place during the time the Shang Han Lun was compiled which may influences it’s rise in popularity, fame and usefullness to the physicans of both it’s time and the modern era.
