    "Teaching" used as a noun

    Dear friends,

    We're all familiar with the verb "to teach". How about the noun "a teaching"? I'll give a few examples:

    - religious teaching (ideas, principles, etc. saying how people should live if they follow some religion)
    - the Teaching of the Twelve
    - the teachings of the Koran

    Now please read the sentence:

    "In contemporary medical practice there is a growing interest in old oriental methods of reflexodiagnostics and relexotherapy based upon the teaching about meridian energy balance of the body."

    Have I used the word "teaching" correctly?
