Chinese medicine is a unique philosophy of health and healing based on a deep tradition of thousands of years. Based on the balance of nature and the inner harmony of the human body, this philosophy emphasizes the handling of the body and mind as a whole. The basic principles of traditional Chinese medicine are the circulation of “Qi”, known as life energy, the balance and harmony in the body, five element theory and yin and yang balance.

Qi is a fundamental concept in Chinese medicine and represents the flow of energy in the body. Health is associated with Qi’s free and balanced flow. Techniques such as acupuncture and acupressure help balance and correct Qi’s flow.

The theory of five elements explain the basic components of nature (fire, soil, metal, water and wood) and the equivalents of these elements in the body. The balance of these elements affects the condition of health and disease in the body. For example, the fever represents the heart and circulatory system, while the water element represents the kidney and urinary tract.

The concept of yin and yang refers to the oppositions of the universe and the human body. Yin, dark, cold and passive, yang is bright, warm and active. Health depends on the harmonious operation of Yin and Yang. Chinese medicine provides various treatments and lifestyle suggestions to preserve or correction of this Yin-yang balance.

Chinese medicine deals with root causes rather than just treating symptoms. Thus, it aims to prevent the recurrence of the disease and provide a holistic recovery. Traditional treatment methods include herbal remedies, acupuncture, tai chi, Qi gong and nutrition therapy.

As a result, Chinese Medical Philosophy represents a deep and rich tradition that emphasizes the connection of man with nature, adopts a holistic approach and focuses on the balance of life energy. This philosophy is an important resource for health and goodness by encouraging the body and mind to work in harmony.
