Theory of Chinese Traditional Medicine – CTM


Chinese Traditional Medicine (CTM) has a history of more than 5,000 years. It has a complete theory about the occurrence, development and treatment of diseases. According to CTM theory, the occurrence of diseases is the in coordination between Yin and Yang and the treatment of diseases is the reestablishment of the equilibrium between them. Yin and Yang are the two concepts from ancient Chinese philosophy and they represent the two contradictories in everything.

In CTM theory, Yin and Yang are used to explain physiological and pathological phenomena of the body. They are also the principles of diagnosing and treating diseases. Roughly speaking, there are two common ways of CTM curing diseases: drug therapy and non-drug therapy. As for drug therapy, traditional medicines are used such as herbs, mineral, animals, etc. As for non-drug therapy, there are acupuncture and moxibustion, massage, cupping.

According to statistics, Traditional Chinese Medicine is better for the treatment of diseases of viral infections, immune system, cardio-cerebrovascular system and nervous system without causing any side-effects compared with western medicine.

The strength and flexibility of Chinese medicine is a direct result of the Chinese philosophical views and understandings from which the medicine is drawn. Chinese philosophy provides us with different approaches to viewing our nature, the workings of our bodies, the manifestation of disease and the process of healing. While it is true that no single system of philosophy holds all of the answers, the Chinese framework provides us with a wealth of guidance and practical techniques to foster physical and mental health.
