TCM - Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM, is the oldest existing form of treatment with close to 8000 years of knowledge about human health. It is about man's approach to oneself and others, work and most importantly to nature.

The old medical parallels to those processes of sickness that affect us speak of Cold, Heat, Wet, Wind and Dry. These five processes explains the sicknesses appearance and often from where it emanates. 

For example: You have been outside in windy and hard weather, perhaps without enough clothes. The day after you feel frozen with running nose and sore muscles. TCM explains this as having been invaded by wind and cold. Often you visit the toilet more oftenly and the day after you have a fever. Chinese medicine says that the cold and wind has weakened you and that part of the body's water has disappeared letting heat emerge - i.e. fever. As to speak “The car cooler is leaking leaving the motor overheated”.

So, what to do? The chinese medic will give you treatments as herbs, diets of what to eat more or less of, acupuncture, acupressure etc. to cool the heat, oust the wind and warm the cold.

How the symptoms shows are different depending on person, both in strength and characteristics. 

According to chinese medicine the focus is not so much at what sickness the person has but more of what person carries the sickness. Meaning that a treatment for a seemingly similar disease is different depending on the carrier.

As the example above shows, a person can be physically exhausted and/or mentally and therefore be more affected than a person that’s “just” cold. There are also persons who doesn’t get affected thanks to a strong immune system.

 
 

Chinese medicine treatments

Traditional Chinese Medicine is an umbrella term for a vast variety of treatments that the chinese medic uses. In China all doctors are schooled both in western and the old chinese medicine. Many are also chiropractors or such. Mostly known are acupuncture where needles are used with different techniques.
Acupressure means that you instead of putting a needle in the acupuncture point massage it. Chinese medicine massage, Tui Na, is one of the oldest massage techniques, including all from light touch to deep tissue massage.
Moxa is a herbal staf you light with fire and use to heaten when for example your body are invaded by cold, such as colds etc.
Herbal medicine and nutritional counseling are the biggest form of treatment, it makes up about 70% of all treatments. Diets and herbs are either a treatment by itself or is combined with another.

Chinese herbal medicine
Herbal medicine is really a focused type of food; fruits, roots, leafs, bark, mushrooms and flowers. Example of common herbs are liquorice root, ginger and ginseng. But there are 100 000 different herbs in use. Most of the recipes that are used are thousands of years old and are a combination of different herbs since for example; one herb stimulates one organ, another affect the muscles and a third circulates the blood flow. Meaning that you tailor the recipe from cause and effect, which is the thought with all methods in chinese medicine. 

About chinese medicinal treatment
The philosophy behind the techniques used in chinese medicine are very comprehensive with a holistic view of man and body. It teaches that the human body is a interplay of emotions, organs and tissues and that no part may be separated from the other. The body is split in sections, so called elements, were an organ, tissue, sense and feeling collaborate.

Before starting a treatment we begin with a fundamental diagnose, an anamnesis from head to toe, where small as big symptoms speak of how the body work and what imbalances and processes are at play.
It is through the bodily symptoms, mad out of 85% of the human language, the diagnosis is set and a treatment can be made.

What conditions can be treated?
We treat all from colds to depressions, the list is long, with great results on problems such as:

Chinese diet:
From a Chinese perspective the food is the most important treatment and probably man's greatest difficulty - we are eating to death! Chinese diet can teach us how to look at food and when to eat what. The very understanding of food is important; Why do I eat this? Is it the need of the body or me? When do I eat it - what effect does it have on me? Take chili for example - what is its quality, how do they affect my body? Chili is hot and menthe are cold, icing when I eat it. Just with that information we know a lot:
If I’m full of worry and have difficulties sleeping - should I eat chili or menthe?
