Learning About Traditional Chinese Medicine
The yin-yang symbol illustrates two opposing yet complementary forces representing the harmony of perfect balance. This equilibrium is the goal of practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a system of medicine that views the healthy body as one who is in balance. TCM offers many treatments for this purpose such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, diet therapy, massage, moxibustion (burning of herbs near the skin), and cupping to balance the body and restore the flow of qi (your vital life energy).
Where Western Medicine tends to focus on present symptoms, Traditional Chinese Medicine involves both a root and a branch in order to perceive a diagnosis — the branch being the symptoms and the root being the fundamental cause. The course of treatment is then considered based on a combination of the practices mentioned above as well as Chinese herbs (powders, tinctures, pills, whole herbs, teas, etc.) and/or food therapy to bring the body back into balance.
We’re introducing June’s box as a beginners look into Traditional Chinese Medicine from a healthy and holistic perspective, independent of ones personal environment. This will give you an idea of how to introduce these foods into your lifestyle as a proactive approach to maintaining balance and harmony within yourself. We encourage you to research for yourself the history and the benefits of this amazing tradition!
