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?

Thanks
