Medicine and knowledge of medical practice have been exchanged along the Silk Road since antiquity. Medical texts provide the vast majority of information about the drugs, techniques, and ideas that passed from foreign lands into China and became part of Chinese medicine. In addition to the medical corpus, historical works provide the backdrop for how, when, and from where these ideas and medicines entered and influenced Chinese medical practice. Examining the historical texts and the information pertaining to medical exchange can allow us to better understand how foreign cultures and practices of medicine along the Silk Road entered and influenced Chinese Medicine.
