“Unlocking the Secrets of Eastern Medicine: How Ancient Practices Can Revolutionize Your Health Today”

Hey there, Lovely! If you’re here, you are probably researching ways that you can take back control of your body, your mind, and your health! I’m so glad that you made it!! I pray that this information will travel to your heart and make an impression on you so that you may use it to become a happier and healthier you! I pray for guidance and restoration and above all, I pray that you love yourself!

Western Medicine. What is it? Well, in a nutshell, if you see a physician in the United States, you are taking part in Western Medicine. The definition of Western Medicine, according to Cleveland Clinic is as follows:

“Western medicine has its roots in the Western part of the world, namely Greece. Experts credit the Greek physician Hippocrates as being the father of Western medicine. Hippocrates and Hippocratic physicians believed that illnesses were the result of imbalances between blood, black bile, yellow bile, and phlegm (what they called “the humors”). These physicians looked for bodily causes of illnesses. Their treatments focused on restoring this humoral balance.”

This was the beginning of Western Medicine! It spans millennia and many plants and herbs were used to treat conditions. You can even find many of the remedies used throughout The Holy Bible! Of course, with growing technology, Western Medicine does not have the same holistic approach as it did at one time. More and more synthetic drugs are being manufactured by pharmaceutical companies and used for the treatment of patients. This has been shown to bring along more side effects in patients which, in turn, will be treated with more synthetic drugs. It seems to be a never-ending cycle!

Eastern Medicine also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has its roots in the Eastern part of the world, mainly China. TCM is still strongly rooted in holistic approaches to healing and concentrates on ancient remedies that Western Medicine used. While Western Medicine focuses on using a specific drug to treat a medical condition in millions of patients, Eastern Medicine focuses on treating the person as a whole instead of just the symptoms. TCM does not only tackle the physical body but also looks at the mind and spirit. It consists of treatments such as massage therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, and herbal remedies. Eastern Medicine does not have as many evidence-based findings as Western Medicine does, so it is not looked at as much in the Western World. However, some western physicians do incorporate TCM, more commonly known as “complementary medicine”, along with their prescribed antidotes.

So, which route are you taking now? Do you want to change it? Add it? Which medicine is better? For me, it seems the more I study Eastern Medicine the more I am drawn to the concepts behind it. I have seen chiropractors for years and have also practiced physical therapy and deep tissue massaging to help with my inflammation and pain and I absolutely love it! These things have helped me more than anything else I have encountered such as medications and surgeries. So I’m leaning more toward the East at this point in my life.

And that brings me here, writing my first blog “From Eastern to Western Medicine!” I am researching, learning, and applying it for myself at this very moment. I bring you, Lovely, on this journey with me and hope that, together, we may learn so many refreshing concepts about the earth and how it can heal. What do we have to lose? Let’s find our happier and healthier selves together!
