What is Hunyuan Medicine?

Hunyuan medicine is a modern interpretation of ancient Chinese medicine and philosophy. Hunyuan means the origin of life. Hunyuan is a way of understanding life. It also provides an understanding of disease and the ability to make the correct decision in medical treatment. Yaron Seidman (USA) created Hunyuan medicine after studying many classical texts, such as the Shang han lun and the Huai Xuan school. In Hunyuan medicine, it is about the timing of body functions which are represented in a circle. The circle is also divided into the six layers (known from the shang han lun). If a body function is too slow or too fast, it is regulated with herbs and acupuncture.
