Chronic infections

Chronic infections contribute to a multitude of diseases and conditions and this was first written about in Chinese Medicine, in the ancient text ‘The Shang Han Lun,’ around 260 AD by Zhang Zhong Jing. This book was written after the author researched ancient texts to study flus and fevers, because his family had been wiped out by a flu pandemic.

Modern day ephedrine and Ventolin were first mentioned in this text, as a derivative of the herb Ma Huang.
