Traditional Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is an ancient healing art dating back to at least 2500 BC. Chinese Medicine sees illness as a sign of disharmony within the whole person. The Chinese Practitioner will seek to restore balance using a number of treatments such as Acupuncture, TCM, and herbal
treatment.

Chinese medicine is an alternative medicine that is based on an understanding of the body as a whole, something that is lacking in our western medicine which looks at each symptom or problem individually.

TCM stands for Traditional Chinese Medicine. In our current world of medicine there is Western medicine which is very good at helping acute conditions and emergency treatment. Then there is TCM which is more systematic and flexible and an excellent choice for chronic or
difficult health problems.

Each year more and more people face chronic health problems and prescription drugs often do little to cure them and have increasingly bad side effects. TCM treatments are excellent for these type of health issues because they are not only natural they are effective and they
have very few side effects.

That’s why TCM is growing in popularity in the Western Countries. China has always known the power of their traditional medicine but the western world is only now beginning to understand how powerful this alternative medicine is.

TCM has one of the highest success rates of all there alternative medicine treatments that are available. Traditional Chinese medicine treats the entire body and it works towards restoring balance within the body. Many treatments are used either individually or combined
for a more effective treatment.

These treatments include herbal treatments, massage, cupping, and acupuncture to name just a few. All are practiced by skillful TCM physicians and acupuncturists who treat a variety of complex and difficult diseases.

Chinese acupuncture is a holistic and powerful treatment. Acupuncture stimulates specific points near the surface on the meridian. These points have the ability to alter biochemical and
physiological conditions.

Chinese acupuncture deals with channels of energy also called Oi. These channels are call meridians and the run in regular patterns through the body, irrigating and nourishing the body. Any obstruction in these meridians stops the energy from flowing and results in an
imbalance and pain.

Stimulating the acupuncture points releases the blockages and allows the energy to flow smoothly again creating balance and relieving the pain.

A more scientific explanation of acupuncture is that the stimulation of certain trigger points causes the body to release certain hormones and chemicals that reduce pain and calm the nervous system.

Acupuncture is a very effective treatment and can even be used as an anesthetic prior to surgery. In fact in many Chinese hospitals it is a common form of anesthetic.

If you are suffering from a chronic illness or ailment and you have had little or no success with western medicine’s treatments you would be wise to try alternative medicine. Traditional Chinese practitioners can be found through out the Western world and over seas. You would be doing yourself a favor if you visited one in your neighborhood.

If you don’t believe the effectiveness of the treatments do a little research online and you will quickly come to find many people have been cured after years of suffering. So what have you got to loose?
