How Traditional Chinese Medicine Looks at Disease

trash-woman2Regarding any disease, from Traditional Chinese Medicine (“TCM”) standpoint the human body has no disease but has only the reaction of dispelling illness.. which causes disease.

We often look for a way to get rid of a problem through external means such as taking medicine and surgery, etc.

This is just like if you were to get rid of your trash can, the trash will be everywhere. We miss the key point to eradicate the source of what generates the trash.

For example, the whole medical field is devoted to pumping in so much money and resources for inventing new drugs and technology to kill bacteria or cancer cells, yet they do not pay enough attention to why those bacteria and cancer cells regenerate so fast in certain bodies.

The chemo & radiology treatments can kill cancer cells, but it can only kill those cells in your body now, not the new ones that WILL be created later.

Similar to a wet surface that will grow mold, if you only get rid of mold, but not take the time to dry out the wet surface, mold will grow again.

Another problem is the fact that chemotherapy and radiology treatments are very destructive to your body. Many people die from after treatment because their bodies are weak, not from cancer.  Our body will probably find another “trash can” in a hurry during the treatment, often it is more dangerous compared with the original trash can.

woman-eatingTraditional Chinese Medicine (“TCM”) believes our bodies have the ability to defend ourselves from the illness factor’s attack and dispel the inner toxic factors too. The illness will show up only when our own system is not strong enough to fight it. Except for some unexpected severe injuries, there are only a few major reasons that caused the illness:

1 Unexpected or extremely severe weather change.

2. Out of control emotional unbalance.

3. The improper amount and quality of food intake.

If we can keep the calm and simple mindset, adjust our lifestyle when the season changes, and stay on a healthy diet, we can effectively cut off the “trash resource”, and nourish our core energy and life essence to have a happy, healthy and longevity life.
