How Traditional Chinese Medicine can treat General Internal Medicine

General internal medicine is the practice of addressing the health care challenges of the future, including an ageing population, patients with simultaneous health issues, and newly discovered illnesses. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system that is over 23 centuries old. TCM has a vast and complex strategy to deliver whole body healing and has the ability to address numerous conditions and symptoms. The protocols that have been developed from philosophies continue to advance TCM to be a recognized practice in many health care systems worldwide. The capabilities of TCM are increasingly becoming more popular as ongoing research further proves its effectiveness. 

In modern times, the capabilities that Traditional Chinese Medicine has can address any health concerns by prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of internal diseases. Western Medicine faces many challenges and limitations towards treatment approaches that are often medication insistent or may be invasive or traumatic procedures. TCM has the advantage of diagnosing illnesses’ and treating them with a more holistic approach by activating the brain and body’s self-healing abilities. This is done through acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxibustion, or Tui Na massage.
