Weird Asian Folk Remedies to Improve Your Health



According to the Western perception, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) mainly refers to acupuncture. In fact, acupuncture is only a small part of Chinese medicine. The main part is clinical diagnostics and herbal medicine. Acupuncture was first introduced to the West when American president Richard Nixon visited China and was presented with a demonstration of acupuncture used as anesthesia in surgery. When acupuncture was first legalized in the state of California, the practice of Chinese herbal medicine was grouped together with it in order to save administration costs. Yet the fact is that acupuncturists are usually not trained in the practice of Chinese herbal medicine, which takes a longer time to master, and many herbal doctors are not trained in acupuncture . In recent years, many acupuncture schools in Western countries have started to teach Chinese herb medicine.
