Description and special features

As an important part of the Chinese culture, TCM has evolved into a unique and complete medical system during the long history of China. The Huang Di Nei Jing (The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine or Canon of Medicine) was the first monumental classic which systematically documented aetiology, physiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. This works were probably compiled over several centuries by various authors.  It consisting two parts: Su Wen (Plain Questions) and Ling Shu (Miraculous Pivot, also known as Canon of Acupuncture).

It takes the form of a dialogue between the legendary Yellow Emperor and his minister Qi Bo on the topic of medicine. Its appearance between 300 BC and 100 BC marked the establishment of TCM. One striking difference between TCM and Western medicine is in the way in which the human body is observed, and hence the difference in the concept of health.

Chinese medicine holds a holistic view of the human body. It stresses the overall, delicate harmony and co-ordination among different parts of the human body. Therefore it puts great emphasis on the careful readjustment and maintenance of this natural balance in the body. It uses zang fu (visceral organs) and the meridians as its theoretical basis, yin yang and “five elements” as its theoretical tools. According to TCM, qi, ‘blood’ and ‘body fluid’ are the fundamental substances which make up the human body and maintain its normal physiological functioning. Health implies harmonious co-ordination among the various parts of the body and their adaptation to the physical environment.

The fundamental mechanism of disease is the breakdown of the relative equilibrium within the organism or between the organism and its environment. In TCM terms, this is known as an imbalance between yin and yang. In the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, the basic characteristic of TCM which sets itself apart from modern Western medicine is that of ‘syndromes differentiation or translated as diagnosis and treatment based on overall analysis of symptoms and signs’. Holism views not only human body as an organic whole but also the unity of the human body and Nature. On one hand, Nature constantly influences the human body, and on the other, the body adapts to the variations in the natural environment.

Acupunture
Acupunture

L'acupuncture est dĂ©finie comme «perforation avec un instrument pointu», mais le terme original en chinois comprend Ă  la fois «aiguilletage» et «moxibustion» (brĂ»lant gĂ©nĂ©ralement des armoises pour stimuler les points d'acupuncture). C'est un Ă©lĂ©ment important de la MTC pour la prĂ©vention et le traitement des maladies. La base thĂ©orique de l'acupuncture repose sur le fait qu'il existe des modĂšles de qi qui traversent les voies-mĂ©ridiens du corps, les Ă©ventuelles perturbations de ce flux de Qi sont responsables de maladies. Le traitement d'acupuncture peut corriger les dĂ©sĂ©quilibres dans le flux de qi en insĂ©rant une aiguille aux points d'acupuncture identifiĂ©s. D'autres mĂ©thodes de stimulation peuvent Ă©galement ĂȘtre appliquĂ©es aux points d'acupuncture pour rĂ©guler le qi du corps et aider Ă  rĂ©tablir l'Ă©quilibre et l'harmonie. Le deqi (obtenir la sensation de qi ou d'aiguilletage) est un facteur crucial dans la rĂ©alisation des effets d'acupuncture. Cela implique le sentiment de «douleur, engourdissement, expansion et lourdeur» par le patient; en mĂȘme temps, l'opĂ©rateur doit ressentir une lourdeur et une Ă©tanchĂ©itĂ© autour de l'aiguille. Comme l'indique le Classic of Medicine de The Yellow Emperor: «les effets d'acupuncture ne peuvent ĂȘtre atteints que lorsque le deqi est atteint». Il existe de nombreux types de techniques stimulantes qui produisent souvent des rĂ©sultats diffĂ©rents. Cependant, cette question cruciale a souvent Ă©tĂ© ignorĂ©e dans la recherche clinique sur l'acupuncture.

La moxibustion est utilisĂ©e pour traiter et prĂ©venir les maladies en appliquant une moxa allumĂ©e aux points d'acupuncture ou Ă  certaines parties du corps humain. Le matĂ©riau utilisĂ© dans la moxibustion est principalement Artemisia Vulagaris (armoise) - une sorte d'herbe en chinois appelĂ©e Ai (moxa). D'une maniĂšre gĂ©nĂ©rale, la moxibustion est appliquĂ©e dans le syndrome du clod, l'affection dĂ©ficitaire et les maladies chroniques. La moxibustion peut ĂȘtre utilisĂ©e en combinaison avec l'acupuncture ou sĂ©parĂ©ment pour effectuer un traitement.
