chinese medicine

Chinese medicine is preventive - you treat a disease that hasn’t happened yet. Western medicine is the opposite - you wait until you’re ill and then you’re treated.

Chinese medicine doctors look to the future for weaknesses and excesses that could cause problems if they are not dealt with - balancing out the yin and the yang, which is something that acupuncture and many other alternative remedies do.
