Traditional Chinese Medicine Makes Waves Onboard.
By Stephanie Kimber, LAc

There is no doubt that billions of people have felt the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and although the advent of modern medicine has been promoted as a superior form of medication, the reality is that many illnesses can be prevented before more invasive methods are necessary. Conventional cures often times come at a cost to other aspects of health. Therefore, the wisest attitude toward medication is this: only take it if other more natural methods fail. Whereas conventional medicine focuses more on symptoms, TCM focuses the importance of getting to the root of the problem. From a Chinese medical perspective, most issues arise from an imbalance of energy in the body. When the energy is balanced, the body has an incredible capacity to heal itself.
