At one time, Chinese healing and medicine were only well known in their origins. However, today, Chinese alternative treatments and medications are on the rise in the western world. Chinese medicine actually traces back centuries and has been used and developed for hundreds of years. Chinese healing is used by Oriental practitioners for a variety of physical problems. The whole of Chinese medicine includes more than just herbal therapies, it also includes breathing exercises and muscle exercises, dietary therapies, acupuncture and, at times, a combination of these therapies may be used at once.

Most of the Chinese healing treatments are based on the Chinese principal on Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang deal with the harmony and balance of the body and the principals of Chinese medicine work to return the body to its normal harmony. Various treatments used in Chinese medicine are developed on the symptoms being shown by the body that point to a particular imbalance within.

While at one time many doctors in the United States looked down on Chinese medicine, doctors are now recognizing these ancient healing techniques as an effective form of medical treatment. One of the treatments that has been found to be effective for treating a variety of physical problems is acupuncture. Scientists have been studying the effects of acupuncture and studies are showing that the treatment is effective. Acupuncture has been found extremely effective for treating back pain, nausea, migraines and most recently there is evidence of it helping patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Many people are turning to this Chinese healing technique as an alternative to surgery and medications and are finding positive results.

Chinese nutrition and herbal medicine are also increasing in popularity throughout the western world. People are turning to various herbs such as ginseng and ephedra to treat and prevent various physical problems. Recently, studies have actually shown that ginseng may help prevent a reoccurrence of breast cancer. Chi Di is another Chinese medication that is used topically to treat pain that people may have with arthritis, sports related injuries and even carpal tunnel syndrome. Those trying this Chinese medication have found it effective for treating the chronic pain associated with these problems.

The main difference between Chinese medicine and Western medicine is that Chinese medicine seeks to heal without causing greater pain and problems and it seeks to cure the problem instead of merely treating the symptoms that appear. Chinese medicine focuses heavily on preventive medicine to keep the body in harmony to keep from developing physical problems. The entire theory behind Chinese healing and medicine rests on having an internal balance and the medicine strives to correct imbalances through treatments such as acupuncture and through herbal therapies.

As more and more studies are being done on Chinese healing techniques and herbal supplements, the findings are showing that Chinese medicine is indeed effective and safe. Some pharmaceutical companies are actually working with the Chinese to develop newer and safer medications based on Chinese medicines. Today, many physicians are recognizing the benefits of Chinese medicine and healing and it is becoming more available throughout the west.
