What is TCM?
TCM is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated, and prevented disease for more than 2500 years. It is based on the observation of nature and its phenomena. In its philosophy, contains the tenet that views a person as a microcosm of nature, a cosmos in miniature. The universe is governed by certain patterns and TCM applies them to the human body. Unlike allopathic medicine which attempts to isolate and separate a disease from a person, TCM emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the root and branch of the disease. It views every aspect of a person’s mind, body, and emotions as part of one complete circle rather than loosely connected pieces to be treated individually, while considering all of the person’s physical, psychological, and emotional aspects. The goal of TCM is to return the individual to a state of dynamic balance, enabling him or her to achieve their optimal level of well being.
