The classical books on Chinese Medicine were all published about 2 millennia ago. All schools of Chinese Medicine since then have followed the basic principles of Classical Chinese Medicine but expanded upon certain areas. Chinese Medicine uses visible and discernible indicators from your daily life to define your health, without requiring you to undergo invasive and expensive procedures. Classical Chinese Medicine emphasizes the balancing of all the body functions to maintain health, complimenting the Western medicine approach, which focuses on individual organs. Chinese Medicine tracks down the root cause of your health issues rather than treating the symptoms. By identifying key areas to watch carefully, you can begin to improve your health and body from the inside out. Treating only symptoms with drugs or extreme diets can sometimes cause or exacerbate other conditions; by treating the root cause, Chinese Medicine can help alleviate all symptoms in a natural and healthy way.
