Users are, through the relevant information we can see the world of Traditional
Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive and vigorous development showed a tendency!
Since some people have always been considered to have "democracy and
science," the spirit of the Western developed countries are so in love with
the "Chinese medicine", then we, as "Chinese
medicine" the Chinese nation has naturally inherited the cultural legacy of
those but some of us sell ourselves short, but had to claim that "Chinese
medicine is not science"? Although I do not like to take foreigners to China
thing, but this is no way! Because those who declared that "Chinese
medicine is not science" in argument "Chinese is not
science" and stressed - that Western medicine is science! I also had
followed suit it!

Yes, I admit, there are indeed some people in society name of the so-called
"Chinese Family," "secret remedy,"
"cure all kinds of incurable diseases," and so dry with a
trickster's acts under the banner! I also recognize the "Chinese
medicine" in its development and heritage there are some drawbacks, such
as "Chinese medicine" is the general way of family inheritance
from generation to generation, and their prescribing, dispensing general is
"secret." This has to a certain extent, hinder the
"Chinese medicine" scientific development. However, this does
not prove that "Chinese medicine is a pseudo-science!"

I said earlier, "Chinese medicine" as the Chinese
nation's fine cultural heritage, can be thousands of years of evolution and
inheritance has, naturally has its own rationality. So, let us adopt a scientific attitude
and scientific spirit of great efforts, "Chinese medicine" in a
reasonable and scientific, must not be unworthy, sell ourselves short!

Study: Black face up against the brother of one does not understand
"Chinese medicine", but would like to use the Forum as
"Chinese medicine" in this precious cultural heritage of the
Chinese nation to say a few words.
