1) The Classic states: “Whenever we treat a disease,
we must approach it at the base.” Base here means
root or source. Every stream on earth has a source,
and every plant has a root. If all murky sediments
settle at the source, the downstream waters will
naturally be clear and fresh, and if we water a root, it
will grow and branches will sprout; these are the laws
of nature. The experienced physician, therefore, will
always consider the source.
However, the body’s source is differentiated into a
prenatal and a postnatal aspect. The prenatal source
is the kidney; the kidney is associated with the
direction north and the phase element water–water
being the number one in Taoist numerology, the first
offspring of heavenly Oneness. The postnatal source
of the body is the spleen; the spleen is known as the
Central Palace and associated with the phase element
earth–earth being the mother of every living thing.
