Philosophy / Basics of Chinese medicine
The illness is a sign of disharmony of body, some are caused by disfunction of body internal and external link; some are caused by imbalance of inner organs and body structures. The cause of disharmony, in Chinese medicine theory can be listed as follows:
- problems in body structures, for example, deformities of bones or muscles
- imbalance in energy distribution of organs
- emotional and mental/psychological discomfort
In Chinese medicine, external and internal of human body is one coherent whole. Internal disorder reveals also on/in the body surface. Depending on our trained observation skills, we can pull together an array of inferences in the patient’s physical appearance, pulse, and other indicators to pinpoint the relevant syndrome and the roots of the disease. This method has more than 3000 years of history, and we have rich experience in it.
