In this 45 minute community lecture , Dr. Neal will introduce the Neijing description of the cosmos, nature, and the human body arising from 20 years of classical text research. These descriptions create a new model of the universe, natural world and human body, which, in turn, has led to the development of a new understanding of human health and illness and a new model of healthcare. These developments have widespread implications for both Western and Chinese medicine and our human condition by retelling the original story of Chinese medicine from the ground up.
