Abstract: The paper discussed, based on xiang (phenomena) thinking mode, the theory of time-concerned treatment in Huangdineijing from 3 aspects: the meaning of time, changes of time and appropriate time of action. The author pointed out that time, manifesting as dynamic xiang, is essentially the waxing and waning of yin qi and yang qi. The essence of time-concerned treatment is seasonal qi-concerned treatment, so the integration of xiang of time, position of time and qi of time will be helpful in holding the phenomena and changes of qi of time and grasping therapeutic measures in health preservation, disease prevention and formula design.

Key words: xiang (phenomena) thinking mode, xiang of time, position of time, qi of time, time-concerned treatment, qi-concerned treatment
