What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical discipline that has developed over the past 2500 years. In most countries TCM is categorised as alternative or complimentary therapies because very little scientific testing has been done.

The main type of medicine practiced in China is TCM. Traditional Chinese remedies are more than simply taking pills.  A TCM treatment plan could include acupuncture, massage and gentle exercise along with herbal remedies. This site is about treating common ailments, so I am only going to discuss the traditional Chinese herbal remedies here.

Many medical philosophies from other parts of the world have influenced TCM throughout history. Therefore some of the TCM remedies described here might be similar to other natural herbal remedies listed on this site.
