起死回生:Bringing the Dying Back to Life

起死回生

qǐ sǐ huí shēng

Bringing the dying back to life

2500 years ago during the Spring and Autumn period in China, there was a renowned doctor named Bian Que. There were many stories related to his superb medical skills.

2500年前的春秋时期,中国有一位叫扁鹊的名医, 有许多故事是关于他高明的医术的.

Literal meaning: bringing the dying back to life

E.g

村民说这药可以起死回生,但是我们都觉得他们在夸大药的疗效.

cūn mín men shuō zhè yào kě yǐ qǐ sǐ huí shēng,dàn shì wǒ men dōu jué dé tā men zài kuā dà yào de liáo xiào。

This medicine could bring the dying back to life according to the villagers, but we think they are overstating the curative effect of the medicine.
