Today the western world, particularly the United States, is rapidly adopting TCM as an alternative or as a complementary medical practice.
Consider some of the basic principles of TCM:
• Our bodies are a complete whole: every organ or structure in your body is an important and inseparable part of the whole. Apart from your mind, mood, and soul, the organs of the body form a very complex and interconnected system that is driven by the life force.
• You are an important part of nature: every change in nature is reflected in your body. TCM practitioners take specific times of the year, area location, time of day, age, inheritance, and many other situations into consideration when considering your health concerns.
• You have a strong innate ability to heal: your body is a miniature version of the great things around you. Like nature, your body has regenerative abilities. Sometimes this natural ability seems lost or difficult to access but is never completely lost.
