Chinese medicine


Chinese medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is based on natural treatment methods that have been adapted and improved over thousands of years. In addition to the use of numerous herbal active ingredients, manual treatment methods, exercise and nutritional therapy, acupuncture and moxibustion are core elements of traditional Chinese medicine. While many approaches to TCM raise doubts from a scientific point of view, acupuncture, for example, has been shown to be an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions. The generally positive health effects of the Qigong movement theory can also be proven and the importance of nutrition for health cannot be disputed. Overall, TCM is more focused on correcting the causes of the disease and less on immediate symptom relief. (fp)
