    Medicine.

    2 The three causes of disease include exogenous, endogenous, and miscellaneous

    causes.

    3 A minimum of six patients must be classified and their treatment decisions made.

    4 A Treatment Principle refers to the philosophical basis on which the treatment itself is

    based. Once a patient's condition is classified, the treatment principle should

    demonstrate the intention to restore balance to the body.

    5 Conditions are a collection of signs and symptoms that lead to a diagnosis, or

    classification, or syndrome recognition.

    6 Zang Fu are the organ systems of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These organ

    systems are in terms of their functional inter relationships. They do not correspond to

    the organ systems of Western Medicine.

    7 Aetiology is the cause or causation of disease. There are external, internal, and

    miscellaneous causes. External are climatic factors and there are six. Internal are

    emotional factors and there are four. The miscellaneous factors are environmental.
