Autumn is here. The summer heat is finally behind us and we can enjoy the fresh air and mild climate that we missed so much in previous boiling months. However, as we all know, autumn is the period when the body adapts to new conditions, rains and cool breezes are more frequent guests and summer clothes are still present in our wardrobes. So it is way too easy to get sick. Often, the first impulse for many of us is to go and buy the usual Western medicine that will help quickly. But, probably, trying Chinese way of improving health can be a better choice. Some say that it is a lot more effective, others say that it is less harmful than harsh Western medicaments and a third believe that it is an overrated “myth” that won’t be helpful at all. Let us find out!

Chinese traditional medicine started to develop no less than 2000 years ago. For quite a long period of time it was influenced by many traditions - Japanese, Korean, Western and even the Cultural Revolution played a crucial role. Chinese medicine, as we know it today, of course contains the wisdom, knowledge and skills that have been developed and discovered by Chinese doctors and practitioners, but Western influence and political changes in China somehow declined the expansion and training for young doctors. Nevertheless, not only is it still very possible to find practitioners and doctors that can help you if you need them, but also tradition of Chinese medicine is visible in common people’s life.

Chinese medicine is different from its Western counterpart through its core. The main difference lies in understanding of the connection between energy and health. It is believed in China that everything, including human beings, is being governed by the Five Elements of Nature: wood, water, fire, metal and earth. So, human body is constantly intertwined with nature surrounding it. Each of these elements is associated with different season and organ of the human body: fire with early summer, heart and intestines, water with winter, kidneys and bladder, wood with spring, liver and gall bladder, etc. It can be very hard for Western people to accept this way of thinking, however, in China, it is quite obvious. Moreover, connection between mind and body is quite particular as well: each organ is responsible and perceptive to different emotions and mind functions. For example, anger is connected with liver, while decision-making is impossible without gall bladder involved. Based on these fundamental principles, it is easy to anticipate that a visit to a physician specializing in traditional medicine can be quite intriguing - you will be asked about your food habits, your thoughts about sources of your stress, your occupation, your emotions and mood, etc. This, useless at the first glance information, can be important for the doctor to determine the nature of the imbalance.

Also, in addition to the theory of Five Elements, Chinese medicine practitioners employ Eight Guiding principles to analyze and interpret the condition of the patient. These principles are eight pairs of polar opposites: heat/cold (to determine the balance of energy in the patient’s body), interior/exterior (symptoms that are affecting hair, skin, blood vessels or inside organs), deficiency/excess (if the body doesn't have enough or, on the other hand, too much of something), yin/yang (male yang energy represents solid organs and cold, yin - heat and hollow organs). It would be right to say that Chinese medicine overall looks at the body as a complicated and well-connected mechanism and always treats it as a whole.

To understand the unique condition of every patient Chinese medicine practitioner needs to receive a lot of information, so there are usually three steps that a doctor should take before coming up with a diagnosis - interview, pulse diagnosis and tongue examination. In the first stage, a doctor will ask variety of questions - quality of sleep, habits, dreams, appetite, mood, stress, and so on. Also, every practitioner is trained to analyze not only patient’s behavior but also smells. However, it is almost obligatory in the West to wear perfumes. Such a shame, as according to Chinese medicine, each condition has a smell. Pulse location is also quite different in China: there are many places to locate it and each of them corresponds with different organs. By locating the pulse on different points on the left or right wrist and analyzing the rhythm, volume and frequency, a doctor can locate the imbalance. Pulse taking requires years of training to master and is considered to be the true proof of the doctor’s qualification in Chinese medicine. To get more information about the patient’s condition, a doctor will always take a look at the tongue - structure wherein the color and size can signalize the problem. For example, white coating on the tongue indicates deficiency of energy, blood, or moisture.

When the problem is finally located, the doctor will advise a patient to take a course of acupuncture, taking herbs, massage, or to think about diet and exercise. As for acupuncture, it is probably one of the most effective and fast methods in Chinese medicine - needles are inserted in different points of the body to correct the flow of energy and improve the patient’s condition. Taking a special remedy entails using a formula that doctor creates especially for the patient based on nature, taste, affinity or primary action of the Chinese herbs. Like the diagnosis of pulse and tongue reading, prescription of herbal remedies takes practitioner years to master as it requires a full and deep understanding of medical theory and complexity of herbs. As for the diet, it is also quite different from the Western equivalent - Chinese believe food is the main reason of efficiencies and deficiencies as well as cold and heat balance in our bodies. For example, if the person is diagnosed with “hot dry” condition, a doctor will advise to avoid fried, broiled, high fat or spicy - food that is seen as warming (yang) because it generates heat and stimulates circulation. 
 
Many people believe that Chinese medicine has an amazing effect on health if followed and used properly - patient should pay attention not only to the medicine he takes, but also to diet, mood, exercise and weather. And, who knows, maybe Chinese medicine is truly a key to longevity.
