Chinese medicine is a science that emerged in China on the basis of ancient knowledge of the human body, its functions, its health and illnesses and has its own theoretical system, rich clinical experience and uses scientific methods of thinking.
Traditional Chinese medicine is based on a thousand-year experience of studying the human body and methods of influencing the processes occurring in it. It is an independent system, including the theory of the origin of diseases, methods of diagnosis and treatment, which are absolutely different from Western medicine.
Chinese medicine and Chinese philosophy since its inception were formed simultaneously and inseparably; In quite a full extent this formation took place already in the middle of the first millennium BC.
Traditional Chinese medicine treats man as part of nature and
organically whole, centered in "dense" and "hollow" organs, and internal
communications are provided by the meridian system.
