In Guangxu's Reign, Qing dynasty, the bubonic plague (the plague) prevailed for several consecutive years in Lingnan. "In all villages and towns, the plague breaks out at the end of spring and the beginning of summer and is considered the most tragic disaster ever." Huang was discontented with "the then folk medicine books which only focus on Shaoyin and internal heat and merely suggest medicines with cold and cool properties" and the situation that "as only the effect of those medicines arrives the first and is the strongest, in most cases common people are directly asking for the prescription instead of waiting until their syndromes are differentiated and identified". Huang concluded based on his clinical experience that "'He' is a disease of sore pain, and its type genus is ulcer. Its color and shape should be observed to decide whether it is Yin or Yang, and the patient should be observed to differentiate the six factors in nature (wind, cold, summer heat, humidity, dryness and fire)" Therefore, the author explained in this book about the reflection of plague by Liujing and the later syndromes according to the law of progress of exogenous disease reflected by Liujing. Furthermore, prescriptions are listed against different syndromes in this book so that those who seek medical suggestions can use this book as a credible reference.
