The goal of Chinese Medicine Living is to be a resource for information about Traditional Chinese Medicine with an emphasis on lifestyle. The desire is to share traditional knowledge on how to live according to Chinese Medicine principles. The Chinese medical system has been around for more than 4000 years, and the philosophy is based on Taoist principles. The Taoist philosophy sees humans as an inseparable part of nature, living in harmony with their natural environment. There is an emphasis on preventative measures so that illness never had a chance to develop. The strategy was balance in all things from diet, exercise and emotions – if they are balanced, disease is not able to take hold.
This is also a site that aggregates information about Traditional Chinese Medicine so that it can be a resource for people, prospective patients, current patients and practitioners alike. We hope that you will find it useful and that you will learn something you didn’t know about TCM. In a complex world, we hope to also impart the beauty and elegance with which the Chinese describe not only the body and disease, but the universe and our place in it.
