Prof. Huang Huang

Professor and PhD Supervisor at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. Dean of the International Jing Fang Institute at Nanjing Chinese Medicine University.

He is a world renowned expert in Shang Han Lun in the practice of Jing Fang. He is a prolific writer and editor, studied and worked in Japan, taught throughout China, and most recently in the United States, Europe and Australia.

Prof. Huang began his training in Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine in 1973 with Ye Bing-Ren, Xing Li-Jiang and Xia Yi-Jun, famous TCM doctors in Jiangsu province. In 1979, Prof. Huang graduated in Chinese medical theory from Nanjing MTC University. He obtained his master’s degree in medicine in 1982. Since then, he has worked at Nanjing MTC University, as a professor and doctoral supervisor. Prof. Huang defends the study and application of classical Chinese Medicine formulas, modern literature on the indications of the Materia Medica and Formulas and, in parallel, the application of the standards of classical formulas in constitutional types.

Prof. Huang concentrated the focus of his study on the experiences of famous doctors and in the different schools of classical formulas, with particular emphasis on the study of the indications of Media Matter and Formulas. It encourages the comparison of the different schools of thought in the Chinese medical theory of each era. Dr. Huang wrote several books, such as “The Guidance of Case History” (医 案 助 读 Yi An Zhu Du), “The One Hundred Classical Formulas” (经 方 100 首 Jing Fang 100 Shou), “Applications of Medicinals with Classical Formulas “(药 证 与 经 方 Yao Zheng yu Jing Fang),” The Ten Classes of Formula of Traditional Chinese Medicine “(中医 十大 类 方) and” Zhang Zhong-jing’s Clinical Application of 50 Medicinals “(张仲景 50味 药 证), among others.

The methods he shares with us go back to excerpts from the “Discussion of Cold Damage” (伤寒 论), up to the early writings of the Qing dynasty by Xu Ling-Tai (徐 灵 胎). In addition, Japan’s Kampo tradition has also influenced their clinical practice. We are fortunate to have specialists like Dr. Huang, who are able to extract the essence of the wisdom of Chinese medicine, who has a mental liveliness to synthesize the contributions of doctors from the past and apply this knowledge clinically to modern life. In addition, he is famous for his lively and engaging way of teaching Chinese medicine, so that his students learn quickly and with pleasure!

Our teacher: Dr. Salustino Wong, PhD

In the West, he is one of the most prolific connoisseurs of classical Chinese medicine, a school of thought that has been gaining ground in the modern academic world, remaining faithful to the roots of ancient books.

Salustino leaves for China at the age of 22, after having met his first master in Cuba, his homeland, who made him fascinated by the medicine of his grandparents’ country.

At the University of Chinese Medicine in Nanjing, he entered the academic career until completing his PhD. Along his path he met great Masters and mentors with whom he maintains ties to this day, some examples are: Huang Huang (Phytotherapy), Ying Ming (Pediatrics), Wang Ning Sheng (Acupuncture), Tao Kun (Acupuncture and Moxibustion), Zhang Ke Jian (Tui Na), Xue Bin (Tai Ji Chuan), among others equally illustrious. During his time in China, Salustino immersed himself in Taoist teachings and in the study of the art of calligraphy, embracing the passion for teas and the sacred instrument Gu Qin.

Salustino Wong meets Prof. Huang Huang in 1998, where he first contacts the Jing Fang method and falls in love with its effectiveness and simplicity of prescription, within the in-depth study of Classical Chinese Medicine. It becomes your student, maintaining this connection until today.

After several years of teaching in several European countries, Salustino started to teach in Portugal in 2007. Currently, his teachings are present in Mexico, China, Italy, Estonia, France, Holland , Spain and Portugal.

After 20 years in China and having traveled paths where very few have been, Salustino becomes a rare and indispensable piece for the understanding of the thought that is at the base of Chinese Medicine, and that so often it is enigmatic for Westerners.
