Traditional Chinese medicine
Chinese medicine is a complex conglomeration of teachings, which took their beginnings in Far East ca. 10.000 years ago, and which since then continuously developed further. The essentials of Chinese medicine were laid down in writing for the first time around 2000 BC.
The core elements of Chinese medicine have their origins in Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism, whereby from these, Taoism proved clearly to be the most influential. Yin & Yang, the five elements and Qi originate all from Taoism and are the leading principles of Chinese medicine.
The human body forms an integrated whole with all its organs and the innumerable energy paths, so-called meridians. It is a unity, which plays a crucial role concerning the overall state of health and life expectancy of a human being.
It should be the aim for every human to preserve this unity and his health accordingly, in order to be able to live a happy and well-balanced life. The Chinese medicine does deal with diverse practices that promote the preservation of this unity.
