Book of Wei 29 - Biography of Hua TuoEdit

  1. 《佗別傳》曰:有人病兩脚躄不能行,轝詣佗,佗望見云:「己飽針灸服藥矣,不復須看脉。」便使解衣,點背數十處,相去或一寸,或五寸,縱邪不相當。言灸此各十壯,灸創愈即行。後灸處夾脊一寸,上下行端直均調,如引繩也。
  2. 《佗別傳》曰:人有在青龍中見山陽太守廣陵劉景宗,景宗說中平曰「數見華佗,其治病手脉之候,其驗若神。」琅琊劉勳為河內太守,有女年幾二十,左脚膝裏上有瘡,癢而不痛。瘡愈數十日復發,如此七八年,迎佗使視,佗曰:「是易治之。當得稻糠黃色犬一頭,好馬二匹。」以繩繫犬頸,使走馬牽犬,馬極輒易,計馬走三十餘里,犬不能行,復令步人拖拽,計向五十里。乃以藥飲女,女即安卧不知人。因取大刀斷犬腹近後脚之前,以所斷之處向瘡口,令去二三寸。停之須臾,有若蛇者從瘡中而出,便以鐵椎橫貫蛇頭。蛇在皮中動搖良久,須臾不動,乃牽出,長三尺所,純是蛇,但有眼處而無童子,又逆鱗耳。以膏散著瘡中,七日愈。又有人苦頭眩,頭不得舉,目不得視,積年。佗使悉解衣倒懸,令頭去地一二寸,濡布拭身體,令周帀,候視諸脉,盡出五色。佗令子弟數人以鈹刀決脉,五色血盡,視赤血,乃下,以膏摩被覆,汗自出周帀,飲以亭歷犬血散,立愈。又有婦人長病經年,世謂寒熱注病者。冬十一月中,佗令坐石槽中,平旦用寒水汲灌,云當滿百。始七八灌,會戰欲死,灌者懼,欲止。佗令滿數。將至八十灌,熱氣乃蒸出,嚻嚻高二三尺。滿百灌,佗乃使然火溫牀,厚覆,良久汗洽出,著粉,汗燥便愈。又有人病腹中半切痛,十餘日中,鬢眉墮落。佗曰:「是脾半腐,可刳腹養治也。」使飲藥令卧,破腹就視,脾果半腐壞。以刀斷之,刮去惡肉,以膏傅瘡,飲之以藥,百日平復。
  3. 《佗別傳》曰:青黏者,一名地節,一名黃芝,主理五臟,益精氣。本出於迷入山者,見仙人服之,以告佗。佗以為佳,輒語阿,阿又祕之。近者人見阿之壽而氣力彊盛,怪之,遂責阿所服,因醉亂誤道之。法一施,人多服者,皆有大驗。
