In order to become the basic philosophy of Chinese medicine is a prerequisite for the understanding of Chinese medicine theory and practice of understanding. Syndrome differentiation therapy based, are a typical example. In the human body and disease are complex, and therefore the existence of modern medicine and "scientific" some of the taboo. Introducing the Experimental Medicine, Claude Bernard (1813-1878) said that in his view, medicine should not be special, because it is a science, although doctors often told him that there are many features in medicine. Chinese medicine believes that any person is exactly the same person. Therefore, there would be no disease is exactly the same as any other person who will not be a static treatment, can be used many times without any changes. There are also some of the decisions TCM prescriptions. However, in clinical treatment, doctors should always modify the recipe to make them suitable for different patients. This phenomenon seems to be contradictory so-called "repetitive" and "scientific" emphasis. Such a taboo, in fact, quite easy to understand.

However, in the eyes of doctors practicing Chinese medicine, it is different, because the season and the "wet" fluctuations and "hot" changes. Another example is the Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan (Kidney Qi Pills middle) Lee High (1180-1251) development, and for the treatment of stomach. But doctors are now often use it to deal with anemia, neurasthenia, and rectal prolapse. Although the performance of these diseases vary, its causes and nature is the same.
