Famous Chinese medical practitioner Shi Qi: no longer trust those so-called health shortcuts
There is no doubt that the “health health craze” is one after another, and “health stars” are emerging endlessly, and a variety of health books occupy the forefront of the best-seller list, of which “Chinese health” is the most popular.
With the fog of “Zhang Wuben Incident” dissipating, many so-called health experts and health treatments have been questioned, and some people in robes have also questioned Chinese medicine: Is it useful?
Is it true that Chinese medicine is unclear about metaphysics?
In an exclusive interview with “Liberation Weekend”, Professor Shi Qi, a 73-year-old national Chinese medicine practitioner, pointed out that the so-called experts and cheats under the banner of Chinese medicine cannot represent true Chinese medicine.
One of the top priorities under the “healthy disorder” is to let people know the truth of Chinese medicine.
The reporter came to interview the next day, and Shi Lao, who was more than 20 years old, wrote the heartfelt words of his medical career for decades.
He has served as the deputy director of the Shanghai Municipal Health Bureau and the president of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Although he has made numerous reports and published numerous articles about the development of Chinese medicine, he is still very serious about receiving this interview.
Talking about Chinese medicine practitioners who are full of passion, it seems that they have forgotten their age . It is not the fault of traditional Chinese medicine to talk about “Zhang Wuben Incident”, but it reflects the embarrassment and trouble faced by the development of traditional Chinese medicine.
”Packing some common sense into a slang term for ‘all cures’, and subverting some common sense into’ mighty ‘myths.’ This kind of reckless statement contrary to the spirit of science is essentially a deceit.
“” The layman does not say it, the layman talks indiscriminately, which to a certain extent promotes the ‘healthy disorder.’
“Liberation Weekend: Young people, Chinese medicine has received the attention and enthusiasm of many people, but this concern always seems to be connected with the word” health “, and health has almost become the main people’s demand for Chinese medicine.
Shi Qi: It has caused people to pay more and more attention to their own health problems. Health care, especially “Chinese medicine health care”, has a high degree of attention. This has caused a misunderstanding of people. When talking about Chinese medicine, people think it is completely fundamental.Western medicine injections and medicine, thinking that traditional Chinese medicine can prevent you from taking medicine, that is, diet or meridian therapy.
Liberation Weekend: The reason why this impression will be brought to people, I have to mention Zhang Wuben’s best-selling “Eating Sick Diseases Back”.
Shi Qi: A pound of mung bean boiled into water every day can cure myopia, diabetes, high blood pressure, and tumors. This statement goes against the common sense of “syndrome” and “moderation” that Chinese medicine has faced for thousands of years.It is under the guise of traditional Chinese medicine that it is partial and comprehensive, it is false, and it is false and false. It almost misleads the readers’ concept of health care. It also misleads everyone’s understanding of traditional Chinese medicine and destroys the reputation of traditional Chinese medicine.
Therefore, what must be proposed is that the Zhang Wuben incident should not be confused with the real health of TCM. There is nothing wrong with TCM, and the “Zhang Wuben incident” is not the fault of TCM.
Liberation Weekend: Before the “Zhang Wuben fever”, various stars of TCM health and TCM health books have formed a craze in society. Some readers especially believe in the so-called “Traditional Chinese Health Samples” in the book.
A variety of health books seem to have these characteristics. People talk about whatever topics they care about. They firmly grasp the people ‘s psychology. The basic language is easy to understand. It is easier to “operate” than to see a doctor.end.
Shi Qi: Yes, some mung beans and eggplants that have been “deified” have certain nutritional value to the human body. This is common knowledge that many people are not unfamiliar with.The conclusion of “all diseases” can violate scientific common sense.
Liberation Weekend: Steven Barrett, who was included in the “Time Weekly” in the United States as “the first person in anti-counterfeit medicine in the United States,” recently said: “Facing those who claim to be health experts, the Chinese need a little more skepticism.
Pseudo-health experts like Zhang Wuben are actually easily identifiable. Their commonality is to focus on ‘all diseases are eaten’.
People have to stay away from health experts who prescribe ‘food can replace drugs’.
Shi Qi: That ‘s right. Those so-called “healthy ways”
are nothing more than packing some common sense into a slang term for “a cure for all diseases”
and then subverting some common sense into a “mighty” myth.”This kind of reckless comment that goes against the spirit of science is essentially a deceit.
解放周末：这位美国反伪医学第一人还戏称：“我有一个聪明的朋友曾说，庸医从来不睡觉，当火箭抵达月球一个星期后，那些庸医就开始销售‘月球灰’，并声称It works wonders for the treatment of arthritis.
“Shi Qi: Haha.
Liberation Weekend: The uneven health books and the well-known health stars also seem to reflect the mentality of people who are eager for quick success in health care from another aspect.
It is this general mentality that promotes the formation of “healthy chaos.”
Shi Qi: I think this mentality first reflects people’s need for health, and it also includes trust in traditional Chinese medicine.
However, real doctors will never take advantage of this need and trust of the common people, use the “traditional Chinese medicine banner” to exaggerate common sense or deny common sense, and deliberately concoct the sensational “health” viewpoint.
Real TCM health is by no means a few “prescriptions”, and its connotation is extremely rich, including food nutrition, medical nutrition, acupuncture, massage, qigong and other aspects.
In the case of diet therapy, it is appropriate to formulate various dietary formulas for patients according to the characteristics of the disease to achieve the purpose of adjuvant therapy.
Food therapy should also be used according to the physical fitness of different people.
Liberation Weekend: It can be said that ordinary people are very eager to understand the health knowledge of TCM health, but they are good at speaking Chinese medicine, and there are too few experts in TCM who can explain this knowledge in a simple way.
Shi Qi: Yes, the insiders do n’t say it, the outsiders talk nonsense, which promotes the “healthy disorder” for a certain length.
Some laymen are good at catching the needs and psychology of ordinary people, so they use the professional banner to flicker, while some real experts are often more rigorous, or think that “good wine is not afraid of alleys,” and have not joined the ranks of Chinese medicine science.
In my opinion, the emergence of “Zhang Wuben Incident” reflects some misunderstanding and misinterpretation of TCM. Although the fault is not in TCM, it also reflects the embarrassment and trouble faced by TCM development.
The first priority is to let people know the true Chinese medicine.
Chinese medicine is not metaphysics, nor is it superstition.
“True Chinese medicine will never make people eat more than one thing blindly, let alone think that one or two foods can achieve the purpose of curing diseases.”” One method cannot solve all problems. Eating one or two prescriptions once and for all or simply pressing a few points is not in line with the original intention of Chinese medicine. ”
“Some people are willing to believe in the various health‘ secrets ‘under the banner of traditional Chinese medicine, which means that they trust Chinese medicine and need Chinese medicine, but they do not know the true Chinese medicine while trusting.
“As an old Chinese medicine practitioner who has contributed to the cause of Chinese medicine for decades, Shi Qi believes that the top priority is to let people know the true Chinese medicine.
TCM culture has a long history. In the contemporary context, looking at the quaint and profound TCM theories thousands of years ago, and the classical philosophical ideas contained in difficult words, it is inevitable that modern people will have a “mysterious” or even difficult to explain TCM, and it is difficult to use science.Explain the impression.
The variety of health secrets just caught the mentality of someone watching flowers in the mist.
In fact, traditional Chinese medicine is not metaphysics, nor is it superstition. It has its own unique laws and concepts, and after thousands of years of testing, it has become a treasure of traditional Chinese culture.
In Shi Qi’s view, the key to understanding real Chinese medicine is to recognize the three characteristics of Chinese medicine.
The first is the “holistic view.”
Chinese medicine believes that man is a unified whole, centered on Qi and Blood, the five qi, and six qi, which are adjusted through the meridian system.
At the same time, people and the external environment are unified.
Because of the integration of people and the outside world, traditional Chinese medicine is always in the “overall balance” and “yin-yang balance” in the process of preventing diseases, without causing a disease, a syndrome, or a symptom.
”Since stressing the balance and the degree of attention, the real Chinese medicine will never make people eat more than one thing blindly, let alone think that one or two foods can achieve the purpose of getting rid of disease!
“Shi Qi nudged the table lightly.
Another principle of TCM is to pay attention to “perpetual motion”.
Life is moving, changing, and developing, not permanent rigidity.
One of the most widely recognized concepts is “Yin, Yang and the Five Elements”. The treatment and prevention of diseases by Chinese medicine is always blended with the concepts of the Five Elements.
TCM health adheres to the principle of “Four Seasons Yin and Yang”. The “Inner Canon of Yellow Emperor” believes that people should first conform to the laws of spring, summer, autumn, and winter in nature, and based on this, from diet, living, sports, and spiritual aspects.Come to health.
”One method cannot solve all problems. Eating one or two prescriptions once or for all or simply pressing a few points is not in line with the original intention of Chinese medicine.
“Shi Qi is serious and moral.
”Syndrome Differentiation and Treatment” is the third major feature of traditional Chinese medicine.
“每个人的体质和健康状况各有不同，一个好的中医决不会‘千人一方’，势必通过望闻问切，鉴别每个病人独特的病理情况以及整个身体的状况，并通过不同药材的配伍来The right medicine, how much each taste, how to mix will have different effects.
”施杞说：“单一个‘望’字就有多重涵义：一要望神，通过望观察病人的精神状态和面色的变化，来判明患病的轻重、预后等；二要把望全身与望Local combination; Third, look at the tongue coating to improve the accuracy of differentiation. For example, those with purple tongues are blood stasis, those who are greasy and white are cold and damp, and those who are yellow are hot and humid. Fourth, they should look at the throat, because the throat can reflect the disease.The rise and fall of the real and the righteous.
If you do not understand the treatment based on syndrome differentiation, because of disease and medicine, the treatment is not the right way, it will aggravate the patient’s condition, let alone cure and save people.
“In the pharmacopoeia of traditional Chinese medicine, there is never the word” immediate success and immediate benefit. “The true Chinese medicine practitioners believe in the tenet of” medicine is benevolence “.
“The benevolent loves others.
The key to loving patients is to have a sincere heart of pearls. With this heart of pearls, patients will always have a true feelings for you.
“” The world has its own true feelings. The healer treats others kindly, and he will also get great love.
Shi Qi’s understanding of “benevolent art” began when she was a child near her grandfather, watching how her grandfather practiced medicine to save people.
”Grandfather can treat patients with hypertension, patients with high fever, and children with diphtheria.
At that time, Chinese medicine was available to women and children in thirteen departments.
Shi Qi said.
The 81-year-old grandfather said to him that year when he was enrolled in the university: “Let’s go to the medical school in Shanghai. There are famous doctors in Shanghai. There is knowledge in Chinese medicine. It is worth your hard work to study.
“When Shi Qi carried the admission notice from Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine to his grandfather’s bed, his grandfather’s words and thoughtfulness meant:” Medical medicine is benevolence, you have to be a good Chinese medicine.
In a word, remember for a lifetime.
After entering the medical school, the masters of traditional Chinese medicine such as Cheng Menxue, Huang Wendong, Shi Xiaoshan, Chen Danian, Ding Jimin, Qiu Peiran and others have deep traditional cultural foundations and a gentle and affable attitude towards patients, which will make Shi Qi unforgettable all his life.
After graduating, she entered the Department of Trauma of Longhua Hospital and studied under Shi Xiaoshan, the famous descendant of Shi’s Trauma.
“Every day, orthopedic patients from all over the country come here for consultations. The teacher also serves as a member of the CPPCC National Committee. There are many meetings and consultation tasks, but he still does his best to treat every patient meticulously, regardless of fame and fortune.Willing to be a general Chinese medicine practitioner.
In Shi Qi’s view, he who treats benevolence is to love Chinese medicine and care for patients.
He said: “The benevolent loves others.
The key to loving patients is to have a sincere heart of pearls. As long as you have this pearl of heart, patients will always have a true feelings for you.”More than 30 years ago, a retired worker from Jiujiang, Jiangxi was diagnosed with brain cancer locally. He went to Shanghai Longhua Hospital to find Shi Qi and sought last hope.
After careful diagnosis, Shi Qi thought that what he got was intracranial hematoma. After surgery and Chinese medicine, the patient finally recovered and was discharged.
One summer a few years later, Xu Fumin, an old Chinese medicine practitioner at Longhua Hospital, accidentally suffered a traumatic brain injury with a fracture while recuperating in Lushan.
He rushed to Jiujiang at the foot of Lushan, but couldn’t buy a ticket to the mountain. I heard that it would take two or three days.
At the time of 100,000 rushes, Shi Qi met the patient who lived in Jiujiang by accident.
“Dr. Shi, you are my lifesaver!
“When the patient saw Shi Qi, he shook his hand excitedly.
After understanding the problems encountered by Shi Qi, the old patient tried to correct the ticket.
Due to the heavy rescue mission, three days later, the hospital decided to use military aircraft to dispatch nurses to the mountain to assist Shi Qi.
When it was known that the two nurses had landed at the Jiujiang Interim Military Airport but could not go up the mountain, it was the patient who did everything possible to borrow a rare car at the time for them, so that the two nurses rushed to the bed in time.
Talking about the past, Shi Qi was happy: “The world has its own true feelings. The healer treats others kindly and he will also get great love.
“Building an in-depth community to” treat the disease “, let the people know Chinese medicine, trust Chinese medicine, and Chinese medicine has developmental power.
“Through the seemingly inconspicuous popularization of TCM community science, people have stopped believing in the so-called shortcuts to health.
“Cultivate Chinese medicine talents and give them a degree.
In Shi Qi’s view, in order for more people to understand Chinese medicine and acquire correct knowledge of disease prevention and treatment, Chinese medicine should actively enter the people and the community.
He said: “Only if the roots of Chinese medicine are rooted deeper and more widely among the people, can the people effectively introduce the efficacy of Chinese medicine.
Through the seemingly inconspicuous popularization of TCM community science popularization, people’s health awareness can be better improved, so that they no longer trust the so-called health shortcuts.
Shi Qi’s experience comes from her own practice.
Since Longhua Hospital paired with the Xuhui District community in 2005 and established a “famous old Chinese medicine community” model, Shi Qi has insisted on going to the community for free consultation every month.
The most encountered patients with arthritis are Shi Qi. When prescribing medicine, Shi Qi will tell them how to soak feet daily, and personally demonstrate a set of aerobics.
He said that all of this is to give patients a practical and cost-effective alternative to traditional Chinese medicine.
The residents of the community are also very willing to find this famous Chinese medicine expert who claims to be a “community doctor”.
Because in addition to prescribing the patient, he will teach himself the “Twelve Methods of Health” based on years of experience.
The great doctor of the Tang Dynasty Sun Simiao Zeng Yun said: “The disease is not ill when the doctor goes to the hospital, the disease that the Chinese doctor wants is the disease, and the disease that the doctor has the disease is the next doctor.
“As early as in the” Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor “, the” sage has been cured but has not been cured “is the way to prevent illness and maintain health.
Shi Qi believes that deepening the community of traditional Chinese medicine and carrying out the project of “treating the disease” is just a good thing for the benefit of the people, and it is also a major matter for traditional Chinese medicine to maintain its vitality.
Only by letting the people know and trust Chinese medicine, and it is really hoped that the efficacy and advantages of Chinese medicine can make Chinese medicine have a source of continuous development.
At the same time that “Take roots in the people and win the trust of the people”, the development of TCM itself cannot be separated from the training of talents.
In the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine founded by Shi Qi and the Institute of Spinal Diseases of the Shanghai Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is a piece of paper-“The road is yellow, the fire is passed.”
Shi Qi said, “To train talents in Chinese medicine, many give them a degree.
“His method of educating people is” three ways. ”
The first is to “guide the way”, to guide each student to have a clear learning purpose and lofty ideals of dedication to the career of Chinese medicine; the second is to “pave the way”. Not only does he help students learn the course well, he also manages to obtain resources and research funding from various sources, and strives to createA first-class technology platform enables young students to have a “place to use” for training and growth; the third is “on the road”, Shi Qi said that he must play the role of “knowing the way of the old horse” and do everything possible to support young people.
For many years, Shi Qi has always engaged in or accompanied students to bid, defend, demonstrate for them, and be bold.
He said: The heritage of traditional Chinese medicine proves that “inheritance is not ancient, innovation is not inseparable”.
Based on this principle, the Institute of Spinal Diseases has established cooperation with world-class orthopaedic research institutions such as the World Chinese Orthopaedic Research Society and Harvard University.
Every year, Shi Qi brings outstanding students into these institutions to study.
He asked students: “While using traditional Chinese medicine theories to study the science of orthopedics of traditional Chinese medicine, we must also use modern science and technology to conduct research to modernize the science of orthopedics of traditional Chinese medicine.
“The students do not forget the teachings of the teachers: Those who learn Chinese medicine must love Chinese medicine and believe in Chinese medicine.
At the end of their studies, they will always return to the teacher’s side as soon as possible and return to the position of Chinese medicine.
At the end of the interview, Shi Qi handed the reporter a handwritten brush writing: “The poet Qingjing is in the Spring Festival, and the green willow is only half-even.If you want to go to the forest, the flowers are all out.
Shi Qi said that this was the inscription he wrote for his younger generation on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Longhua Hospital, and it was also one of his favorite Tang poems. “Don’t underestimate this ‘semi-uniform’, it is the hope of Chinese medicine.”
