A Glimpse at Oriental Traditional Medicine
Oriental Traditional Medicine is a compendium of deep and immense knowledge of doctors collecting all their previous experiences and understanding over thousands of years but the ultimate aim is on diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases.
All Traditional Oriental Medicine is characterized by the concept of HOLISM or harmonization of vital energy e.g Yin-Yang in the Chinese whereas Western Medicine us characterized by strict scientific evidence-based criteria.
Most Oriental Traditional therapies are supported by empirical evidence on safety and effectiveness, based in sources from traditional scriptures.
It can also provide complementary care in chronic and debilitated diseases for which there is no cure, e.g in HIV and Cancer patients.
Convergence of Western & Oriental Medicine
Western Medicine and Oriental Medicine can work together. Research has confirmed that convergence and combined therapy between the different worlds of medicine will constitute a real break-through in medicine with a view to achieve the ultimate objective leading to “cure all ailments”.
Combined Therapy: There are complementaries of two medical worlds. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Certain diseases that cannot be satisfactorily dealt with the Western Medicine can be effectively cured by oriental medicine or vice-versa.
