Chinese Traditional Medicine


Recommended Posts

First a plea, please do not hijack this post subject by banging on about Covid. plenty of other posts are boring the crap out of many of us by doing that.  let's for once move on from there to other areas of health.

Bit of background; my First Degree, obtained very many years ago from Nottingham Uni in the UK, is in Biochemistry.  You would expect a certain cynicism about alternative Chinese Medicine from such as I, but I have been a follower, and user, of such medicines for many years. Living for a few years in Hong Kong and Taiwan helped the exposure to this branch of health.  I have treated colds, ( not Covid!) , sore throats, tummy issues and lately gout, arthritis and back pain, all with alternative Chinese medicine sources.  In general, I have found them as effective as traditional medications and in some cases, with the arthritis , more helpful.  I would be interested in the experience of others who take this approach.  As an aside, I exclude acupuncture, which I think is a scam, but others may have had more positive experiences with it.
