(NaturalNews) Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has had energetic medicine and treatment thoroughly explored for centuries. Western medical research has only just begun to look into how subtle energies affect our health. Even so, modern Western medicine tends to rely heavily on expensive equipment for both diagnosis and treatment, while TCM does not.

That translates to lower expense and cost. Yet, most western disease treatment coverages (insurance) won't cover TCM. Health cost coverage, no matter what type, traps most in the medical mafia matrix -- by design? Here are a few TCM basics. Another article will have some tips on how to take advantage of TCM's therapeutic wisdom on a budget.

TCM basics for beginners

The whole language and approach of TCM is different from Western medicine's biological and biochemical systems approach. Basic to TCM is the notion of healing the body, or creating balance and harmony with all organs while retaining them.

The practice of removing organs to promote health, even a gall bladder, is repugnant to TCM practitioners. They work on restoring an organ's qi, or chi (pronounced "chee"). TCM even relates organ deficiencies to specific chronic emotions or psychological dispositions.

Qi is a subtle energy that operates organs and cells. Stagnant or blocked qi must be addressed to restore strong and balanced qi energies. Mainstream medicine's expensive technology doesn't acknowledge it, but TCM recognizes three basic types of qi perceived without Western medical equipment.

We are born with ancestral qi. That's our foundational energy wellspring which is sometimes tapped into or eroded over time. Then there's postnatal qi, that which we obtain from our diet, exercise and environment. There's also protective qi that flows around the body at the surface. So qi is essential for the body's operation and homeostasis. Each organ has its own qi as well.

Most are familiar with the terms yin and yang, female and male aspects of universal creation, which are also reflected in all qi energies. Earthly elements such as wood, heat, cold and dampness are among the concepts used in diagnosis without expensive machinery.

Consultations may involve lifestyle questions, but practitioners rely on pulse reading, an art that enables an experienced practitioner to detect even future health problems, and examining features of the tongue with bodily implications that most of us are unaware of.

TCM recognizes digestion as the root of good or bad health, another aspect of health that has only recently been probed slightly in the West. The two treatment modalities of TCM are herbs and acupuncture.

There have been many studies on how well TCM herbs work for even serious diseases. The purpose of TCM trials and studies is to prove TCM's efficacy to an arrogant medical system that pooh-poohs less expensive, less toxic yet efficacious healing approaches.

The herbs are tried and true and have been for centuries. But it's only recently that Chinese herbs have undergone Western medicine's style of testing and unnecessary epidemiological study. TCM is empirically proven with non-toxic herbs. The long road for testing pharmaceuticals is to determine toxicity levels.

Acupuncture streamlines treatments for any health issues one has. Qi pathways have been mapped out as qi meridians over the millennia. Acupuncture needle placements adjust and/or unblock those meridians to balance, moderate and free qi energy throughout the body.

For serious physical traumas and other sudden emergencies, Western allopathic medicine is tops. But let's not confuse those extreme situation interventions with healthcare protection and disease curing. TCM is a holistic healing modality for complete health, disease prevention and disease recovery.
