Chapter 360 The Up-and-comer in Chinese Medicine!
Originally, everyone cursed Fang Qiu as much as they could and belittled him, but the situation was completely reversed in an instant as foreign and domestic media reported on him.
The swearers were silent.
At the same time, those who originally believed in the existence of Qi and Fang Qiu and were afraid to speak out for fear of the huge public opinion at first, now finally dared to speak up.
The comments remained angry.
But this anger was different.
This time, it was the people who believed in Qi’s existence questioned those who scolded Fang Qiu and said that Qi belonged to a superstition.
With the confirmation of international journals and famous doctors, how did those who questioned Qi’s existence dare to speak up?
They had been badly slapped in the face. If they went on, they were probably the ones being reviled.
At the same time, some senior doctors were shocked and moved when they learned that Fang Qiu had made foreigners admit the existence of Qi.
These famous traditional Chinese medicine practitioners were different from ordinary people.
They were well aware that the Qi Fang Qiu showed to shock foreigners was no longer simple but directly went to the root of traditional Chinese medicine.
In the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, Qi was a very important part.
They were surprised when Fang Qiu was able to confirm its existence.
As long as it was a senior doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, he or she definitely had some understanding of Qi.
Just as Xu Miaolin who practiced Qigong, many traditional Chinese medicine practitioners also practiced Qigong. For one thing, it could strengthen the body, and for another, it could be used to study ancient medical books.
Of course, most of them could practice enough to feel the presence of Qi.
But even if they could feel Qi flowing through their bodies, so what?
They couldn’t take it out, put it in front of the world, and said, “This is Qi.”
As a result, no one had been able to prove the existence of Qi for hundreds of years.
This also led people to think that Qi was false, deceptive, belonged to the feudal superstition, and it was non-existent!
The traditional Chinese medicine practitioners felt bitter!
They were frustrated by the lack of explanation.
In this way, Chinese medicine was wronged for hundreds of years.
Now traditional Chinese medicine practitioners had almost habitually forgotten Qi and agreed with the public that Qi did not exist, was false, and belonged to the feudal superstition.
But then Fang Qiu stepped up!
A freshman actually broke the century-old dilemma for traditional Chinese medicine.
This made all the old doctors and scholars of traditional Chinese medicine and highly-skilled doctors very shocked.
Were they worse than a freshman?
Although it was hard for them to have no bitter feelings in their hearts, they felt more gratification and excitement.
To their excitement, after long misunderstood, traditional Chinese medicine had officially been on the international stage since then and had finally been recognized.
To their relief, there was finally an up-and-comer in traditional Chinese medicine.
This man made all people in the field of traditional Chinese medicine see hope and a better tomorrow!
He was Fang Qiu!
“This Fang Qiu is so good for traditional Chinese medicine.”
“Yeah, first came the argument about the pulse of pregnancy, and now he has proved the existence of Qi. Is he really a student who has only attended the University of Chinese Medicine for half a year?”
“How could a student be so good?”
“I think he must have a very good master, or he couldn’t have been so good after learning traditional Chinese medicine for only half a year!”
“Who is his master?”
At the same time, countless people in the field of traditional Chinese medicine started talking about Fang Qiu.
On the other hand, those who did not believe in or like traditional Chinese medicine began to frantically inquire about the qualifications of ‘Medicine and Humans’.
They wanted to see if the seemingly impressive foreign journal was illegal, which would publish papers as long as the writer paid the journal money.
Most of all, they needed to find out if Fang Qiu was lying!
As for the translation and popularization of ‘Medicine and Humans’ on Weibo, they did not want to believe it!
In their opinion, those translators were all hired by Fang Qiu!
How could there be Qi in the world? How could anyone really believe in the existence of Qi?
No doubt, they were all taken aback by the results they found with all their might.
‘Medicine and Humans’ was not a journal that they could challenge!
Crucially, they also found that Fang Qiu’s paper was the fastest to pass since the day ‘Medicine and Humans’ started publication.
This result was incredible for those who did not believe in or even oppose traditional Chinese medicine.
However, what really surprised them was that before publishing the paper, the foreign journal sent someone to China to find Fang Qiu and participated in the experiment of acupuncture and Qi.
These were six of the world’s leading medical experts who had jointly certified Qi and acupuncture in the paper published on the website.
As soon as the report reached home, it was met with gasps of surprise.
“How could that be?”
“Foreigners came to China to personally verify it?”
“Six world-class medical experts were personally involved. Oh, my god! How was that possible?”
Chen Yinsheng, who had been suspended from his job, sat on a balcony in a residential compound in Jiangjing, enjoying the sunshine as he scanned the Internet for comments and reports.
Chen Yinsheng laughed when he saw the reports which had confirmed the existence of Qi.
This time, he got it right.
For him, as long as what he did could help the development of traditional Chinese medicine, as long as it was for the good of traditional Chinese medicine, it didn’t matter even if he was dismissed.
But he was taken aback by the sudden turn of the event.
He didn’t expect Fang Qiu to publish a paper so quickly in such a short week.
Moreover, the paper was adopted by the internationally renowned journal ‘Medicine and Humans’.
In the eyes of any leader and students in the school, this was impossible, let alone him.
Apart from how difficult it was to publish a paper alone in a foreign language journal, the average person couldn’t imagine his or her paper becoming a core paper.
What was the core paper?
It was the main promotion of the current issue of a journal, which meant that the core paper was recognized by the journal and had the highest value.
If the paper had been published in a regular journal, magazine, etc., it might not have sounded so unbelievable.
The incredible thing about Fang Qiu’s paper was that it was published as a core paper on ‘Medicine and Humans’!
He, as a freshman, published a core paper on an international top 10 medical journal. It was something that had never happened and could never happen in a Chinese university.
Fang Qiu had worked a miracle!
In the reading room of the school library, Xu Miaolin was sitting at his desk, watching various reports on the Internet.
He could not help feeling a little excited and thrillingly sighed, “He even knows to attack his opponent’s shield with his opponent’s spear.”
“Our practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine should speak with facts!”
“Tell those who worship foreign things that foreigners have admitted it!”
As time went on, the matter continued to go viral.
As many people swore at Fang Qiu before, so many people praised him after the tables turned.
In the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine, the wind had shifted fastest.
People who didn’t understand Fang Qiu and even hated and resented him were starting to look at him with new eyes.
“Fang Qiu is amazing!”
“We’ll never write a paper that makes it to this journal, will we?”
“It turns out Fang Qiu is still the same Fang Qiu, the same Fang Qiu that we watch in awe. He hasn’t changed. It’s us who have changed. We have become parochial and slavish.”
For a while, Fang Qiu and his paper became the hottest topic on campus.
Almost all the students were extremely envious or even worshiped Fang Qiu.
And at the same time, in the dormitory, Chen Tianyang stared at his computer, wild-eyed.
“How could that be?”
“How was that possible?”
“Fang Qiu is a Chinese medicine major, not a foreign language major. How could he possibly give out a paper in English? He’s only a freshman. Even if he had been good at English in high school, that would not have been enough for him to write such a paper.”
His shouts rang out in the dormitory.
Chen Tianyang looked at the computer screen with envy, jealousy, and hate.
He knew it was no use sending pictures now.
He was beaten to the ground in this round!
Fang Qiu had just returned to his dorm room after dinner when the phone in his pants pocket rang.
He answered the phone.
“What are you doing?”
From the other end of the line came Jiang Miaoyu’s voice.
Fang Qiu said, “I just finished my meal and went back to my dormitory.”
“It’s nice to have no class.”
Jiang Miaoyu sighed and said, “You can have a meal in advance every day. Your food is the freshest and most delicious.”
Fang Qiu laughed heartily.
“I wanted to have dinner with you. Now that you’ve eaten, forget it.”
Jiang Miaoyu replied, adding, “I’ve seen the comments and reports online.”
“What do you think?” Fang Qiu asked, still laughing.
Jiang Miaoyu suddenly said in Taiwanese spoiled accent, “I worship you so much.”
“There are so many people who admire me,” Fang Qiu said proudly.
“You’re so cocky!”
Jiang Miaoyu rolled her eyes and then asked, “So far, this is completely resolved, right? You can continue to practice Qi from tomorrow?”
Fang Qiu nodded.
At the same time, he thought to himself, “This isn’t over yet.”
The next day, Fang Qiu directly uploaded a practice video of regimen to his Weibo.
This video was shot by Fang Qiu himself.
In the video, Fang Qiu demonstrated the Guidance Technique unearthed in Mawangdui Han Tombs in all directions with very standard movements.
For the shooting of this video, Fang Qiu didn’t hide anymore. Instead, he just showed his face!
On Weibo, he also noted that he had taken the photo himself.
With the proof of Qi’s existence and the heated debate, Fang Qiu’s first appearance drew a crowd of onlookers.
Maybe it was because Fang Qiu’s face was so mysterious that people watching the video almost all targeted Fang Qiu’s face.
This was understandable.
There had been videos of Fang Qiu in the past, but they were all inexplicably too blurry to see his face clearly.
And this time, the video was especially sharp because it was shot by Fang Qiu himself.
“Is this Fang Qiu?”
“My God, he’s so handsome!”
“I didn’t expect you to be a handsome boy!”
“I was wrong, boss. I used to think you were a very arrogant and ugly person. I didn’t expect you to be so handsome.”
“Wow, I love you more and more. What can I do about it?”
“What a soft body! I wish I could hold you in my arms and never let you go.”
With the announcement of his face, Fang Qiu had undoubtedly gained another big fan base.
His microblog heat directly rushed to the fourth, approaching the popularity of the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition!
