The Holistic Perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine

The philosophy of Chinese medicine defines health as a balance in multiple respects, including the organ’s Yin and Yang as well as the flow of Qi throughout, wherein illnesses manifest from imbalance. A practitioner of Chinese medicine considers not only the patient’s symptoms but also the health of his or her whole body to diagnose adn treat not only the branches of the disease, but also its roots.

Approaching an illness otherwise, by controlling its symptoms or branches without treating its roots, only stalls the disease process, much like cutting off the stems of weeds while leaving their roots intact.
