Can anyone suggest some ancient resources on human physiology/biology and medicine?

Recommended Posts

I want to know how exactly did the ancients (especially the Daoists and similar Eastern groups) view the human body in its physical form, as well as it's soul and spirit. I would like to know what they thought disease was, and how they would treat various kinds of infections and trauma, and WHY. Like a study course in Traditional Chinese Medicine. But I have a suspicion that TCM today is corrupt/diluted.


works/books before the 19th century are very welcome, especially if they have an English translation. The older the better in my opinion (books before the Tang Dynasty or even the Han dynasty would be amazing).


Thanks for your time
