Biography of “Great Jang Geum” in Ancient China
In China’s medical history, many well-known female medical scientists have appeared. They have exquisite medical skills, noble medical ethics, rescue the wounded, and cure the disease for the people. They have won the admiration and praise of future generations.
Superb medical skills Called into the palace Gong Yuanyuan In the Western Han Dynasty more than 2,000 years ago, there was a woman named Yiyi in Hedong (now Fuxian, Shanxi Province). She was a famous female doctor in the history of our country.
Yizheng was interested in herbs since he was a child. He went to the mountain to collect medicines when he was a teenager.
As long as Langzhong passed by, she always consulted with an open mind, accumulated a lot of time, learned a lot of medical knowledge, and accumulated a wealth of clinical experience.
On one occasion, a patient with a swollen abdomen was brought from outside. The belly was larger than a pregnant woman who was about to give birth, her umbilical eyes were prominent, her body was skinny, and her breath was suffocating.
After Yizhen inspected her carefully, she took out a few silver needles, pierced the patient’s abdomen and legs a few times, and took out a pack of medicine powder and sprinkled it on the patient’s umbilical eye, and wrapped it with silk moistened with hot waterAnd give the patient Chinese medicine.
After a few days, the patient’s swelling gradually subsided, and the patient could get up in less than 10 days.
Later, Emperor Han Wu’s medicine was known to Emperor Han Wu, so she enlisted her into the palace, and was named a female doctor to treat diseases for the Empress Dowager.
She is good at acupuncture and medical treatment. Li Minzhen is from the Jin Dynasty, and Bao Gu, the daughter of Baoshou, Nanhai, Guangdong, is also a famous female doctor. Her husband Ge Hong is a famous alchemist in the Jin Dynasty.
Due to her long hearing and family influence, she has created good conditions for her treatment.
She has followed her husband for a long time to practice medicine in the alchemy of Luofu Mountain, Guangdong, and treats the people. Lingnan-with the public respected her as “Bao Xiangu”.
Bao Gu practiced medicine collection and traveled to Guangzhou, Nanhai, Huiyang and Boluo.
She is well-medical and meticulous. She excels in acupuncture and is known for her treatment of tumors and warts.
She used moxibustion to treat the disease with wild red-footed wormwood at the foot of the Yuexiu Mountain. Therefore, later people called this worm “Bao Gu Ai”.
After the death of Bao Gu, the Lingnan people commemorated her contribution to the medical cause by building the Bao Gu Temple in Sanyuan Palace under the Yuexiu Mountain in Guangzhou.
Zhu Lixian said that practicing medicine is the people. Female doctor Tan Yunxian of the Ming Dynasty, a Wuxi man from Jiangsu, whose grandfather was a former Langzhong in Nanjing’s Criminal Department, is a local famous doctor, and his grandmother is also proficient in medicine.
Tan Yunxian was well-educated by his family since he was a child, and learned medical knowledge under the guidance of his grandparents.
Shortly after her marriage, she developed qi and blood disorders. Instead of giving up studying medicine, she took her own disease as the subject of study, prescribed her own medicine, and finally cured the disease.
Soon, her grandmother was bedridden and taught her all recipes and pharmaceutical tools before she died.
In feudal society, some boudoirs and wealthy relatives had gynecological diseases. Due to the restraint of ethics and religion in feudal society, they were ashamed to ask a male doctor for treatment, so they often suffered from illness.
Tan Yunxian’s medical skills are exquisite, well-known from far and away, and female patients have gone to the clinic.
Later, Tan Yunxian became a local female doctor specializing in gynecological diseases.
At the age of 50, Tan Yunxian wrote a summary of the medical skills taught by his grandmother and his many years of clinical experience into a “female doctor’s miscellaneous talk”, which he passed on to future generations.
Master of Surgery Hand in Hand Except for the Sickness There is a famous surgeon in the Song Dynasty named Zhang Xiaoniang. Her medical skills were neither ancestral nor derived from her husband’s practice. So where did it come from?
It is said that when Zhang Xiaonian was young, one day, a Yunyoulang passed by the door and asked her for a glass of water.
Seeing that she was an old man with silver magpies, Zhang Xiaoniang invited him into the room, made tea, and enthusiastically served meals.
The old man saw that she was clever, smart, and diligent in her hands and feet, so she gave her surgical secrets such as surgery and ointment, and gave her a secret, “Anthracite Alien”.
Later, after continuous practice, Zhang Xiaoniang finally became a female doctor proficient in surgery.
All patients with sores and bulges came to seek medical treatment, and after her diagnosis and treatment, all of them showed no wonder.
— When fame is so loud, patients should be overwhelmed.
She passed on her surgical technique to her husband, so the couple became local doctors.
