• Using poison to attack poison

  • Daoist Priest Xuan Tong of Wudang Mountain, China talks us through his use of various locally sourced materials in making his traditional plasters, including the use of scorpions, snakes and various poisonous minerals.
    Rather than being concerned about side effects, the effects of the poisonous materials themselves are seen to be an integral part of curing disease, “using poison to attack poison”.
