Chapter 19 You Are a Quack
Although James did not know who the young man was, he answered, “If let me do the operation, I could maintain at least two to three years life-span for him.”
Qin Haodong looked at him and sneered, “What a joke. You leave such great harm to the patient, removing half of the lung lobes and only keeping his life for another two to three years. How dare you claim to be the best thoracic and pulmonary doctor in the world. Who gave you the courage?
I would say you are totally a quack!”
James got suddenly furious and his face turned red. It was the first time for years that one dared to call him a quack doctor.
He stormed to Qin Haodong, “Who are you? Do you know anything about medicine? In consideration of the patient’s current condition, what I have put forward was the best treatment plan. No one else can treat him at all. I am the best thoracic and pulmonary doctor in the world, a world-recognized expert!
Nalan Wufeng also asked coldly, “Who are you? How did you get in? Is this a place where you get a say? Where are the guards, get him out of here! ”
“Shut up!” Nalan Jie said angrily, “This is Dr. Qin, I invited him!”
“Doctor Qin?” Nalan Wufeng looked at Qin Haodong for a moment. His expression became even more disdainful. “Shouldn’t all traditional Chinese medicine doctors have white eyebrows and shining white long beards? How could there be such a young doctor?”
“Grandpa, have you been deceived? How could he be a doctor?”
“Shut up or get out. Don’t talk nonsense here!”
Nalan Jie angrily scolded Nalan Wufeng. Yesterday, according to Qin Haodong’s suggestion, he had taken a 12-hour medicated bath, and he felt much better than before. He even had a good sleep last night.
He naturally believed in Qin Haodong more than the bearded man who proposed to remove half lung lobes of him.
Seeing the old man was really angry, Nalan Wufeng ducked and dared not speak anymore.
But James was not afraid of Nalan Jie. He said to Qin Haodong, “No way! You can’t be a doctor. I don’t think you’ve graduated since you are so young. How can you be a doctor?”
Qin Haodong said, “I am a traditional Chinese medical doctor. In traditional Chinese medical science, we stress on medical skill instead of age and seniority.”
“Traditional Chinese medical science? Ha… Ha… Ha… doctor of Chinese medical science! ”
Hearing this, James laughed heartily. Even his sprays from coughs covered his beard. He laughed and turned to his assistants, “Did you hear that? This is really the funniest joke in the world. Never expect a doctor of Chinese medicine can come out to treat the disease!”
Qin Haodong frowned and said in a cold voice, “Why, is it funny?”
“Funny! Of course, it’s funny!” James said, “Go to the World Medical Association and ask about traditional Chinese medical science. Everyone knows that is deceptive, it’s totally superstitious witchcraft. No one believes that traditional Chinese medical science can cure diseases!”
“If you don’t believe in traditional Chinese medical science, you are ignorant!” Qin Haodong turned around and pointed to Nalan Jie and said, “If I use traditional Chinese medicine to treat Mr.Nalanjie’s disease, we will not only have not to cut off the lungs, but also can make him recover completely. What’s more, at least I can extend a ten-year life span for him!”
“I just heard one of the funniest jokes in the world, and now here comes the biggest boast. Is that called Chui Niu in your Chinese language? I’ve heard that you Chinese like to brag, but today I finally see it!”
As James shook his head and spoke Chui Niu in his stiff Chinese, which sounded extremely harsh, his assistants laughed again.
Qin Haodong buttonholed Nalan Wushuang, who was about to lose her temper, and said to James coldly, “Since you don’t believe in traditional Chinese medical science, let’s make a bet?”
“Bet, okey. How do you want to bet?”
James was famous for his arrogance in the World Medical Association, and at this time he did not take Qin Haodong seriously.
“Just bet on Mr. Nalan’s disease. I can say that I could cure him in half an hour.”
“No way, it’s absolutely impossible. His disease is impossible to cure even in half a year, let alone half an hour. Traditional Chinese medicine can’t cure diseases at all. Why can’t you Chinese change your boasting habit?”
James shook his head and the disbelief spread over his face.
Qin Haodong said coldly, “Just answer me dare you to bet or not?”
“Of course. Why not? Go ahead, what do you want to bet on?”
“This Korean ginseng is worth 10 million yuan. If you win, you can take it away. Otherwise, you shall kneel down and take me as your teacher in public. Meanwhile, you should apologize to traditional Chinese medical science on the world-famous press!”
James glanced at the ginseng in the big red brocade box. Although he was a doctor trained in Western medical science, he also was aware that the ginseng was absolutely first-class and very valuable.
“Are you sure you want to bet with me on this?”
James said incredulously. In his opinion, he was sure to win the bet. He does not understand why the Chinese people played for such a high stake.
“Sure, today I will let you ignorant people see what is called traditional Chinese medical science!”
“Well, I agree with all the terms you said, but don’t renege when you lose!”
Although Qin Haodong’s terms would make him lose face and were a bit harsh, James immediately accepted the bet, because he never thought he would lose.
He had seen the medical examination report of Nalan Jie just now. He believed even God could not completely cure him.
Then Qin Haodong didn’t talk to the foreigner anymore, but turned his head to Nalan Wushuang, “Now I’m going to treat Mr. Nalan. Use your mobile phone to make a video, in case of this foreigner’s disavowal.”
Nalan Wushuang nodded, and took out her mobile phone to record a video. Qin Haodong let Nalan Jie get up and sit down on a stool.
He first took Nalan Jie’s pulse to make sure that the cold Qi in his body had been cleared through the medicated bath, and then took out a Marrow-Cleansing Pill for the old man to eat.
After all, Nalan Jie’s meridians were blocked for a long time. As his martial cultivation attribute was cold, his meridians had been eroded by cold Qi for a long time. It was quite fragile. If Qin Haodong forcibly unblocked the meridians, it was very easy to cause a rupture of meridians. This Marrow-Cleansing Pill could increase the tenacity and strength of his meridians.
After doing all this, Qin Haodong took out the needle bag and quickly stabbed forty or fifty silver needles in Nalan Jie’s chest. With the efficacy of the Marrow-Cleansing Pill, he began to dredge the blocked meridians of the lungs.
Nalan Jie had been injured for a long time. With the serious congestion of his meridians, Qin Haodong did not dare to treat him in high-intensity, so the treatment was time-consuming and laborious.
About 20 minutes later, fine beads of sweat began to ooze from his forehead.
Suddenly, Qin Haodong raised his hand and clapped it on Nalan Jie’s back. Nalan Jie opened his mouth and spat a mouthful of black blood.
The black blood smelled terrible immediately after it fell to the ground, and if you looked carefully, there were some black lumps in the blood.
Nalan Wufeng had been watching nervously beside him. Seeing Qin Haodong clapped on Nalan Jie and made him spit blood, he immediately cried, “What’s the matter? How do you treat? Why did my grandpa spit blood?”
“If you don’t understand, don’t talk nonsense. If he didn’t spit out the extravasated blood, can he recover?” Qin Haodong raised his hand and took back all the silver needles on Nalan Jie’s chest. Then he turned to James and said, “I’ve finished my treatment. It’s time for you to keep your wager.”
“What? No way. I suspect that your casual treatment has aggravated the patient’s condition. It’s just a mess. I have never seen a treatment like this. If you are in our M country, you are guilty of hurting people by needling them like this, you should be arrested and put into prison.”
James looked excited and his beard shook as he spoke. He lived in his forties, and never saw a doctor treat his patient by touching wrist, pricking needles, and finally making patient spit blood. In his opinion, this was not a cure at all, but a tomfoolery.
“The old man is healed. What else do you doubt?”
During the conversation, Nalan Jie stood up suddenly, with his face bright and energetic. Qin Haodong not only dredged the meridians of his lungs, but also cleaned his body by Marrow-Cleansing Pill. At this time, the physiological function of the old man at least had got twenty years younger. He never felt so good.
Nalan Jie turned to Qin Haodong and said, “Thank you, little magic doctor. Thank you so much.”
Nalan Wushuang and Nalan Wufeng were struck dumb, gaping but speechless. “In just twenty minutes, Grandpa was like another person. It’s incredible.”
James shouted. “No… No… You are a group. You are acting, you Chinese not only like to brag, but also like acting. I know, it’s a two-man act. You are all prepared beforehand, I won’t be fooled.”
Qin Haodong looked at him and smiled. He had expected that the foreigner would not believe his treatment. He said, “You can use the equipment to test it. Will the instrument you bring deceive you?”
“OK, I will expose your lies and show the whole world how traditional Chinese medical science deceives people!”
James began to direct his assistant and gave Nalan Jie a second physical examination.
Nalan Jie also wanted to know how he had recovered, so he cooperated with the examination. Soon a medical examination report was sent to James.
“My God, what happened?”
James looked at the results of the examination and his hands began to tremble. Nalan Jie’s two lung lobes, which had cell necrosis, were now recovered, showing no sign of illness at all. What’s more, the body’s test data were much better than the results just now. Even a normal young man did not have a physical quality like this.
If he had not brought the equipment from Country M, if he hadn’t personally tested Nalan Jie, if he hadn’t kept the results half an hour ago in his hands, he would never believe this.
Qin Haodong laughed and said, “Mr. James. Don’t tell me that your machine is also playing a two-man act.”
“God, this… this is a miracle. It’s like magic.”
James held the test result in his hand, but still couldn’t believe it was true.
“If it is magic, it is also the magic of traditional Chinese medical science, and it has nothing to do with your God.” Qin Haodong said with a cold expression, “Don’t talk nonsense. Keep your bet wager!”
As soon as he spoke, everyone’s eyes were focused on James’ bearded face. If he followed the previous bet, he would kneel down to Tang Long and kowtow to his teacher, and apologize to traditional Chinese medical science in a world-renowned media.
But James was a well-known medical expert of the World Medical Association. He had flaunted his superiority just now. Can he bow his arrogant head to this young man now?
“Don’t be so excessive, Qin Haodong.” Nalan Wufeng shouted. “Mr. James is a foreign friend from M country. He just played a joke on you!”
