TianGan (Heavenly Stems) and DiZhi (Earthly Branches), commonly abbreviated to GanZhi, originated in the ancient Chinese cosmological sciences and is a complex calendrical system which was created to codify the patterns of life and of the universe itself. The ten symbols of Gan express the Yin or Yang perspective of Five Elements and embody the Way of Heaven. The 12 symbols of Zhi, made manifest in the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, hold the root of each Element and embrace the Way of Earth.

Dr. Marc S. Micozzi explains the fundamentals of Chinese medicine, and the indigenous medicines of Greater China, in some detail - how they have evolved, the fundamental principles, and where they are drawn from - hence putting them into social and philosophical context. Normally these medical systems are studied in isolation, so this is a work of considerable originality. He covers Korea and Japan and, in extending the coverage to East and Southeast Asia, he also explores the indigenous medicines from those regions and the influence of China and Chinese medicine, while acknowledging the pull towards other cultural influences, such as India.
