Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is thousands of years old and the basic concept is that a vital force of life, called Qi, surges through the body. Any imbalance to Qi can cause disease and illness.
Traditional Chinese medicine should not be used as a replacement for conventional treatment, especially for serious conditions, but it may be beneficial when used as complementary therapy. Since some TCM herbal medicines can interfere or be toxic when combined with Western medicines, you should inform your doctor if you are using TCM.
