Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an old, popular naturopathy. In Chinese philosophy everything is determined by yin and yang, two complementary opposing forces. Health depends on a balance between yin and yang. If the harmony of the two is disturbed, it leads to illness. The interaction of yin and yang creates qi, which is life energy.
Qi flows on its pathways (meridians) and connects all functions of the body with each other. If the qi flow is disturbed, weakened or blocked by internal or external factors, you get sick. Pain or various functional disorders arise in the body. The energy blockage should be recognized early on before an illness develops and has already reached an advanced stage. The task of the TCM is to get the life energy flowing and to unblock the Qi. It helps in a gentle and holistic way.
TCM attaches great importance to prevention. With TCM the self-healing power is strengthened. A disease can be eliminated in its nascent stage and its progression can be prevented. Long Covid symptoms such as permanent fatigue, shortness of breath, depression, muscle pain, loss of taste , headache, cough, etc. can also be alleviated with TCM.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends TCM as an effective form of therapy.
