What were the requirements in Inner Cannon for Chinese medicine doctors? “To be a doctor, one must know the heaven above, the earth below and the human in the middle”. The reason is that Chinese medicine is the application of laws of the universe to human body. The ancient people know those laws by observing the sky, earth, and comparing human being to all other things in the world. How a person could know so much about the heaven and the earth? It has to be through learning Yi Jing. “Yi Jing covers everything, the laws about the heaven, the earth and the human. Three divided into six becomes hexagram which is three Dao of the heaven, earth and the human”.
