Who was Dr Ye Tianshi?

Dr. Ye Tianshi was born in 1667 and died at the age of 79. He was one of the greatest medical experts in Chinese history.  He is best known for proposing that feverish diseases progressed along four stages, a theory he laid out in his book Discussion of Warm Diseases. Dr Ye however also prescribed recipes for the healing of injuries and strengthening the body.

Dr. Ye was born into a family of Chinese Medicine doctors. His grandfather and father were both famous doctors in their time. He started learning Chinese Medicine from his father when he was 12. Dr. Ye was 14 when his father passed away. He continued his study of medicine with Mr. Zhu, one of his father’s apprentices. Ye was so intelligent that he quickly learned everything Mr. Zhu could teach him.


Thereafter, Dr. Ye began searching for outstanding doctors from whom he could learn more. Within 10 years, he had been taught by 17 teachers. As he was good at studying and adequately applying what he learned in practice, his medical tactics became more and more advanced, which led him to become one of the greatest physicians of his time.

How is it applied?
Use the Jow (liniment) by pouring a small amount (a capful) into your palm and rubbing it into the area you want to condition. eg hands, forearms etc.  Rub in before and after your training and leave it on for at least 30 minutes before washing your hands or showering so it can soak into the skin.
