    Traditional Chinese Medicine

    Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a holistic point of view of the human body. It thinks our mind, body and the Universe are an interrelated organic whole, and the human body is a mini Universe. TCM treat a patient instead of a single symptom or a disease.

    The whole functioning of the body and mind is dependent on the normal flow of body energies or life force, which call Qi (or Chi) and blood. If the Qi or blood is weak or stagnated, then symptoms appear.

    Two big parts of TCM are Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. Acupuncture treats disease by manipulating tiny thin needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. Stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of Qi through channels known as meridians.

    Most of Traditional Chinese Drugs (TCD) is botanicals; some of them are mineral and organics. They are used to form formulas according to TCM theory. Traditionally practitioners prescribe raw herbs to be decocted as a tea, but in general here on the west hemisphere, tea pills, granules and capsules are most common to be used.

    TCM treatment begins with a consultation. Practitioners gather a complete and detailed health history, along with feeling the patients’ pulse and checking their tongues, and then practitioners use all this information gathered and form a diagnosis according to TCM theory and come up with a treatment plan: that may be an acupuncture prescription or an herbal formula or both.

    The ultimate goal of TCM treatment is stimulating the patient’s capability of self-healing. It focuses on restoring a balance of energy, body and spirit to maintain health.

    TCM has been used for over 3000 years in the treatment of all kinds of diseases, including both acute and chronic conditions. TCM treatment is safe and effective for the general public and even infants and elderly patients.
