Chinese medicine is profound. It is the result of thousands of years of accumulated experience and wisdom of medical practitioners. It can treat and prevent even dreaded modern diseases, for example in the SARS period, some Chinese medicine doctors made use of Chinese medicine prescriptions from many hundreds of years ago to cure countless people. In fact, Chinese medicine contains not only the drugs and diagnostic techniques but also, more importantly, principles of medical science and its philosophy. Because of the correct concepts, it is more effective and able to keep patients away from disease than expensive drugs or dangerous surgeries.

The Holistic Concept of Chinese Medicine

Chinese traditional culture believes that nature and man are one, emphasizing harmony with nature. It is a humanized science. From the Chinese medicine point of view, a person is a whole unit and indivisible. Thus, although different organs of human body have different functions, they are both different and interrelated to constitute an integrated relationship. That is, one must not treat the health problems individually or take stop-gap measures, rather one should carefully analyze all organs and tissues altogether and the imbalanced condition of all organs, tissues and their orifices throughout the body.
