Traditional Chinese Medicine & Chinese Herbs

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), disease is perceived as a disharmony (or imbalance) in the functions or interactions of human body and the environment. TCM identifies these disharmonies by not only identifying obvious outward symptoms, but also by observation of subtle variances in the pulse and tongue color and moisture which point to the underlying imbalance. Therapy is based on correcting these underlying imbalances. Thus, two patients presenting with the same outward symptoms could be treated very differently in TCM.
