The effectiveness of these diagnosis and treatment methods has successfully stood the test of time. Classic Chinese medicine work, e.g. Yellow Emperor's Canon of Medicine, Treatise on Febrile Diseases Caused by Cold (Shang Han Lun), are famous traditional Chinese medicine classic books. The theories of Yin and Yang, the Six-Meridian Syndrome Differentiation method still guide the Chinese medicine clinical practice to this day.
