Traditional Chinese Medicine - An Ancient System That Can Improve Your Health in this Modern World

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is not about finding and treating illness or disease (that is the job of a doctor), but instead it is about finding imbalances in the body and bringing the body back into balance. Once in balance the body can start healing and getting stronger to help fight against future illness and disease. 

In the West, we tend to think of health merely in mechanical or physical terms. This is not true in TCM. The entire Chinese health system, which includes herbalism, massage therapy and acupuncture, is based on the theory that all things have an energy field. This energy, which flows in, through and around our bodies is called Chi. Acupuncture charts show lines of energy flow through the body called meridians. The meridians carry the life-energy, the Chi, through the various organs and parts of the body.

If the flow of life-energy through the organ is either excessive or blocked, then that organ will become imbalanced in some way. The energy field is like a matrix which controls the physical structure of the body and the way the cells line up within that structure. Thus, all illness is a manifestation of imbalanced energies in the body.

If there is too much energy flowing through a part of the body, we could say that that part of the body is stressed. To stress something is to place too much pressure or emphasis on it. Hence, a body part with too much energy flowing through it is overemphasized or stressed. On the other hand, if there is too little energy flowing through a body part, then that body part would be said to be weakened.

TCM is more than 3,000 years old. The TCM system, refined over those thousands of years, is designed to address the underlying imbalances in the body that may cause illness. While it can offer symptomatic relief, it goes farther and restores the body back to a state of health. It works because illnesses fall into various patterns. These patterns of illness arise from certain body processes and organs that are no longer functioning in an optimal manner.  By identifying these underlying imbalances, we can provide an herbal remedy that will strengthen and balance the body to restore normal function. We carry an exclusive line of high-quality traditional Chinese herbal formulas, supplements, and loose-leaf teas that help people get well and keep well.

With regular Tai Chi practice, a non-drug supplemental approach is a great way to naturally strengthen the body.
