and for the umpteenth time...
Sunday, April 02, 2006  
We visited the trad chi med clinic last friday, to say the least, i was quite impressed. there were some really good doctors there, that started with the same curriculum of western medicine (physiolocy anatomy microbiology pathology) and they were able to articulate between the 2 sacts of medicine.

basically chinese medicine is a different set of bio-ecological philosophy, a more perfectionist and naturalist approach to the microscopic view of molecular biochemisty that western medicine is heading. the birdge in between will be social medicine, as it deals with the interaction of the body environment (so in TCM we have the 6 states of systemic clues, and therapy targetting these systemic differentiation to correct the imbalance... i.e. homeostasis). a lot of them are not too scientic (observation and experience-based) but when they work, they can do miracles that western medicine cannot do. a lot of the times we know that they work, we know how they should be made to work, but we don't know why.

chronic pain, soft tissue injury, insomnia, non-infectious GI distubances, autoimmune diseases, drug side effects, viral infection, immunocompromised states... all these would really need a heavier combined TCM therapy.

herbal medicine is dodgy as ingredients vary with sub species and geography (kiwi in south africa vs kiwi in new zealand?), their diagnosis is dodgy as it is subjectivity plays an important role: how red is red, how pale is pale or how hard is a "hard pulse". take the example of "heat", it's a really abstract concept if you are not chinese, we were raised to learn how fried food for example is related to acnes, oral ulcers and the subjective feeling of dehydration, low grade fever and maliase; so the "cool tea" (liang2 cha2) that mom makes for us are suppsoedly "cold" herbs as defined in TCM pharmacological texts (to neutralize the "heat" in the body), for the past 21 years i can tell you that they work, syntoms of "heat" do improve alot if not subside afterwards (temporal relationship and dose-response). and nobody knows how. plant hormones? psychosomatic? there's something there waiting to be explained, a coupla more items needed to establish the causation relationship (Hick's, Hill's)
