According to legend, because the queen was pregnant for a long time but could not give birth, she invited her Sun Si Mac into the healing palace. As a person of noble background, the eunuch beside the Empress tried to test the famous medical god famous for his silk threading method – taking her pulse before prescribing and diagnosing her illness.

Indeed, after that, the reputation of the medical god with miraculous therapy became more and more resounding when the Queen, after taking the medicine he prescribed, gave birth to the king easily.

If only relying on legends, legends from folk to talk about this magical method is true, it is somewhat forced. Therefore, researchers have studied and recorded in the ancient medical technique that “the occult pulse” is just a cunning therapy to cover the eyes of outsiders.

Indeed, with genuine famous doctors, they cannot prescribe medicine when relying only on such fragile threads. The use of “herbal medicine” is only an option to cure diseases for people with a noble status or against the prejudice of “male and female without being born” in ancient society.
