There's little doubt that Americans enjoy the most technologically advanced medical care in the World. Still, there's much we can learn from the Chinese system of medicine. Scientific studies of China's ancient healing system are just beginning, and more are needed. But a growing body of research suggest that acupuncture, herbal remedies and other components of Chinese medicine do provide relief for many common ailments, even when Western medicine has failed.
Chinese medicine is helpful for everything from asthma and arthritis to migraines and menstrual cramps. It can help cure alcoholism and other addictions...and helps alleviate nausea and other side effects of cancer chemotherapy.
What is Chinese Medicine
The Chinese system of medicine is hard for Westerners to accept, or even grasp. More than a collection of exotic treatments, it's a unique way of looking at the world and the body. The language Chinese physicians use to describe symptoms, diagnoses and physical processes is the language of the natural world. It uses terms like earth, metal and fire instead of the technical jargon familiar to most Western physicians and their patients.
Whereas Western medicine focuses on the specific disease entities and diagnostic categories, the Chinese system views the body as both expressing and fueled by a basic animation force called qi (pronounced chee). This vital energy circulates constantly through meridians lines along the body on which the acupuncture points lie. Chinese medical therapies are concerned with restoring the balance of qi. Everything taking place in the organs and elsewhere in the body is considered to be interconnected to the individual's psychology, the time of day, season of the year, indeed to all phenomena in the natural world. The diagnostic techniques Chinese doctors use are alien to Western physicians. They include...Touching and listening to the belly and identifying imbalances in the body.
