  • Why do people turn their backs on Western medicine?

  • Western culture arises from the ideals of Christianity and the legacy of ancient Greece and Rome. The medicine we know today was born at the feet of the Acropolis. The most famous Greek doctor, referred to as the "father of medicine" was Hippocrates, whose oath obliges doctors to this day. The mythological representation of the doctors was Asklepios (better known as the Roman Aesculapius), whose snake is to this day a symbol of medicine and doctors in general. Medicine in this approach was therefore something lofty, extremely prestigious and inaccessible to everyone. The doctor was treated like a hero. Meanwhile, Eastern culture had completely different ideals to offer to the world and man. More human, mundane, helping here and now. Deriving from the wisdom of the Far East. Perhaps that is why people today, doubting Western medicine, are turning to it ...

  • A brief history of Western medicine

  • Called conventional or classical medicine, medicine in today's sense was born centuries ago, in antiquity. Although Hippocrates himself did not invent the oath, which is still the basis of medical ethics, his students did so, so the legacy he left behind is immortal. It can be said that the non omnis moriar principle is implemented in it. Thus, the medical culture of the Western world is based on respect for the patient, love of life, maintaining it even despite requests or orders. It also refers to keeping secrets, to looking at the patient outside his corporeality and sexuality. In short, although it treats the patient as a life, it is the life of an object, not a specific person. It can be said that this is a classic case study. The development of medicine is the development of knowledge about the world and man. However, Western culture first acted and then understood. This was the case with newborns, who, according to applications, were not to feel pain, so all operations (and even until the end of the 19th century!) Were performed without any anesthesia or painkillers. It happened more than once that in order to cure someone from a disease or discover something really important in the human body, the patient was killed. It is worth quoting the example of Roentgen, who invented today's x-ray, but at the same time irradiated and led to the death of his wife. As civilization progressed, the need for prevention, observation, knowledge and a careful approach to the patient's life began to be seen. The world, however, pursued a border that was crossed far after the end of the 19th century. Today, conventional medicine is able to cure a lot of diseases. He can control plague, fight viruses, bacteria and fungi. Pharmacies grow like mushrooms after the rain, and their contents bend to various medications. So what if the prices of real medicines exceed the wildest expectations and their impact on our health is not fully explored. So what if hundreds of diseases are still waiting for cure, especially those that come from us. Medicine today offers opportunities that exceed the image of Hippocrates. At the same time it became inaccessible and expensive. It allows you to shorten life, eliminate unborn children, artificially prolong the vegetative state and transplant organs. On a macro scale, it is irreplaceable, independent, looks down and never guarantees that it will take care of man. Maybe if she had time ... She is not human and she should serve people. The modern world in the pursuit of money has lost the idea of ​​help that Hippocrates talked about. Instead, he gave tools that can often work wonders. That is why we can heal, but wait for this treatment. No wonder that in many cases people seek help elsewhere. Usually where they find understanding. Where man still means something, not just a file of hundreds. Of course, there are a lot of countries where health care is better organized than in Poland. However, wanting or not, conventional medicine becomes either ineffective or intended for rich people.

  • The business of patented drugs and preparations in the European Union and the world aims to ban natural healing methods, in particular the achievements of Traditional Medical Systems. Herbs and herbal medicine are targeted by politicians. Under the guise of caring for the public good, people are slowly banned from using safe and proven methods known for centuries. All this takes place at the expense of alternative medicine and patients who often doomed to palliative treatment do not receive any help from people who have multi-million diagnostic equipment, and yet are unable to cure their ailments. Not without seemingly known American lobbyist said "Who controls food and medicine controls society."

  • A brief history of Far Eastern medicine

  • A thoroughly humanistic approach is proposed by natural medicine. Also called unconventional as well as traditional and non-traditional. The key here is the point of view. Traditional Chinese medicine is old, almost prehistoric ways to combat various diseases, infections and infections. These are, by nature, methods that were available then, were available in the first centuries of our era, and which are still available today. Real unconventional medicine was born when no one had heard of conventions yet. When the world was ruled by brutal instincts. However, one had to deal with it. And the old Far East world knew how to go about it. Herbalists collected and dried herbs to inflict various ailments on people. Knowledge was passed on from grandfather to grandfather, it was not written down anywhere. The wise men trained in the art of observing the human body carried out complex procedures called acupuncture or acupressure. People were listened to and people watched. Hence the secret knowledge that allowed us to properly use even what the forest brought. They were not experimented, but were based on observation and wisdom of their ancestors. Touch, gifts of nature, proper management of human energy, also psychological research in the feng shui trend. All this made up natural medicine in ancient times, in ancient China, the medieval Japanese Empire and in today's Republic of South Korea. The knowledge that people had from the old days, from stories, from ancestors and from religion was the basis of medicine. This, however, did not change as radically as Western medicine. It is orderly, known for years and still effective. Of course, conventional medicine is now in force in the Far East. There is no denying the achievements of technology or modern knowledge. However, often this knowledge simply confirms what was known for a long time. Each branch of traditional medicine was imbued with conventional medicine, but still remained itself. There is no place to waste knowledge today. Utilizing it completely is a must, which is why both medicines should work together and complement each other.

  • The biggest advantage of Traditional Medical Systems over conventional medicine systems is a cheap, effective and safe method of diagnosis. The doctor of traditional medicine spends a lot of time observing various aspects of the patient's body such as: eyes, ears, face, skin and sweating, and even smell - all this makes a visit to a good therapist is not short. The therapist combines the acquired knowledge of an internist, traditional medicine doctor and clinical practitioner in one medical visit. We are talking here about qualified specialists in traditional medicine and acupuncture, which many practice in the East, combining the knowledge of classical medicine with Eastern medicine. This combination gives excellent results in the treatment, prevention of diseases as well as most importantly in the detection of outbreaks of future diseases. As a preventive method, alternative medicine has the most to offer. Prevention is always better than cure.

  • The work called the Canons of Internal Medicine of the Yellow Emperor conquered the local world and set the treatment for many centuries. So it is clear that the rooting of acupuncture in the history of humanity dates back to extremely distant times. Moreover, according to The Lancet report, there is evidence that the method of body piercing has already been used in Eurasia [2]. All this creates a picture of a full and integral treatment method, which today is included in the unconventional methods used in many countries around the world.

  • Permanent migraine and acupuncture

  • Acupuncture derived from Old Chinese medicine is one of the methods of treatment. Thanks to it, you can influence the system regulating energy flow in meridians, consisting of a number of active points on the map of the entire human body. - says prof. dr hab. Piotr Woźniak, president of the Polish Society.  [1] 

    This is a unique method of treatment, which consists in properly hammering rounded needles that push the tendons and affect the flow of energy between the nerves. This is a very popular method, although it has only been used in Europe for a little over a hundred years. The tradition of acupuncture in Far Eastern medicine is radically different. However, is there conventional space for this type of activity in conventional medicine?

    Acupuncture is not the seventh wonder of the world: if you have to operate on cancer or have a Caesarean section, there is no discussion, but you should think about it when you have chronic migraine pain, chronic adnexitis or chronic runny nose. The general idea should be: use it where pharmacology can be bypassed, if only because of the toxic effects of many drugs for the liver.[2] Thus, as Woźniak says, it is the chronic, prolonged diseases for which Western medicine does not know the medicine can be a perfect example of the wisdom of the Far East. The example of migraine is extremely suggestive. What does the treatment of this type of disease look like in conventional medicine?

    First of all, it depends on the form of organization of health care in a given country. However, apart from a number of inconveniences related to this, after receiving a referral or after making an independent appointment directly with a specialist (for the amount the gentleman should remain silent) we receive a prescription for painkillers and tomography x-rays. If he does not show anything (and with ordinary migraine it must happen), then we continue life without pain, but on tablets. There is no solution to the problem, only sweeping it under the rug. Long-term migraine can have various causes, and because no medicine can exclude it, it decides to deceive the body with increasingly stronger means. Vicious circle?

    It looks different in the case of alternative medicine and the use of acupuncture therapy. As Professor Piotr Woźniak recalls: During 30 years of practice, it happened to me that a patient with migraine got rid of the pain after the third treatment for at least 10 years, maybe she is not there today, but I cannot say it with certainty, because I do not have her contact.[3] So as you can see, the effectiveness of acupuncture can be stunning, but maybe only a series of 10 treatments will help. Usually this happens and the relief is long-lasting and uncompromising. Is it any wonder then that people are turning their backs on conventional medicine?

  • The treatment or support for the treatment of various ailments by the integrated method using the achievements of acupuncture is almost always surprising in its positive health effects on the human body. It is possible to treat the ailment and get rid of others that were associated with it and improve the quality of life. In my work I often had patients who already after 3 or 4 surgery experienced significant improvement and did not need further. Acupuncture has the advantage that, when used together with other achievements of traditional or even classical medicine, it complements them wonderfully and works in synergy, so that doses of medicines normally used can be limited. Needle treatments work up to 6 months after the last series, and the effects are permanent. Based on thousands of years of observation and research, it is a very safe and reliable method with virtually no side effects. In the hands of an experienced doctor is a powerful weapon in the fight against disease, and in a healthy person an excellent alternative to maintaining health and natural immunity.

  • Acupressure and the treatment of "soul diseases"

  • Another method based on acupuncture is acupressure. It literally means "pressing the needle". However, it is not done with the tools, but with the hands themselves. She is over 7,000 years old and focuses on the right touch, stroking, scratching and other stimulation of the relevant body parts. It is called the "soft version of acupuncture". First of all, it is safe, does not cause side effects, although improperly used can be harmful. According to researchers and doctors, acupressure is ideal for all diseases related to the human psyche. It is not known today how strong the power contained in our brain is. Appropriate stimulation of energy channels allows the release of endorphins and helps brain receptors. One such testimony is the description of an employee of one of the natural medicine clinics:

    About 15 years ago, a 36-year-old woman working professionally as a psychologist came to the acupressure office in Kłodzko, who after the birth of a long-awaited child had huge fears of leaving home and other so-called vegetative ailments. Massage of all weakened points was performed twice a week for six months. To this day, he massages his feet prophylactically, once a week. The massage completely healed and returned to full professional activity.[4]

    These are not the only relationships that affect the reception of acupressure treatments in Europe. Wherever classical medicine can only offer pills to calm down, judging, in a way, rightly, that most of this type of disease comes from stress and an incorrect lifestyle, unconventional medicine understands, touches and stimulates the body in response to stimuli. Acupressure can help treat:

    • migraine;
    • allergies;
    • infertility problems;
    • asthma;
    • digestive system diseases;
    • depression;

    It is therefore not worth wondering where conventional medicine has lost its original idea. Was it a desire for profit or segregation of people, or maybe a kind of pride? It is worth understanding, however, that natural medicine is a complement to Western medicine, and therefore should coexist. On an equal footing.

  • Eastern massage is inseparably associated with acupressure. A good specialist in Eastern medicine and acupuncture knows the location of acupressure points as well as their proper name in Chinese nomenclature. Each acupuncture and acupressure point has its own special Chinese name. By stimulating places on the human body, a proper reaction effect of the body is obtained. In this way, you can, for example, calm the stressful body, raise or lower blood pressure, improve the performance of specific muscles and tendons, support recovery processes after injuries, and even affect the centers of addiction to alcohol, nicotine or drugs. Very often, acupressure is used interchangeably with acupuncture or as a supplement with moksowanie treatment.

  • Herbal medicine, i.e. the potential not fully utilized

  • Herbal medicine is the third link in folk medicine. It is an ancient belief in the magical power of herbs, spices, plants, in a word - faith in the magic of nature. It is part of today's conventional medicine as well as the religious beliefs of the Far Eastern peoples and Europe. However, the extent to which Western medicine today uses Far Eastern (but not only) wisdom from the power of nature is unsatisfactory. However, of the three acupuncture, acupressure and herbal medicine, the third is gaining the most supporters among the doctors of classical medicine from Hippocrates.

  • "Let food be medicine and medicine be food"

     

    Hipokrates (460-370 p.n.e.) 

    Hippocrates laid the foundations for modern medicine. He believed that the human body possesses an innate ability to heal itself. "First, do no harm." "Let food be medicine". His "Oath of Hippocrates" is still made by modern doctors today. However, since Hippocrates, the approach to treating diseases has changed ...

  • Very high herbal medicine safety

  • Herbal medicine, or phytotherapy, has been around for centuries in the history of the ancient Far Eastern peoples. Using the power of plants, not only as nutrients in the daily diet, but also as a medicine has become the basis of the beliefs of the people there. However, settlements that began to arise in Europe also believed in this type of help from nature. Old Polish herbs were known throughout the region, and those who knew what they were going to do were called witches. Thus, the ability to observe space was comparable
    in the western and far eastern world. So what influenced the negation of this type of ingredients? Not at all a Christian religion, which, especially during the Middle Ages, fueled interest in herbs.

    No wonder then that medicine has taken over many ingredients including them in the composition of the drugs. At the same time, it caused their corruption. Knowledge did not pass to doctors, and herbalists began to hide strongly from sharing it. Meanwhile, the Far Eastern world uses this wisdom to this day. No wonder then that many diseases for which conventional medicine cannot find a cure are treated with herbs. This is even the case with simple flu, which some strains can be difficult to control. Medicine does not propose any medicine, but only supports the body itself. For the plague are the best home methods, and today it is difficult to find knowledge under our latitude.

    It is difficult to clearly determine what herbs help best. It is known that they are non-invasive, do not cause side effects, provided that they are used for their intended purpose. They help to:

    • burns, cuts, skin diseases;
    • menstrual cramps;
    • stomach aches, digestive problems;
    • broken nerves;
    • strengthening the body;
    • influenza, bacterial and parasitic diseases

    Their use could be multiplied, but at first glance it can be seen that folk wisdom is expressed here in quantity and quality.

    The crisis of conventional medicine is based primarily on a lack of faith in the effectiveness of its help. This is not a positive phenomenon, because science must go hand in hand with knowledge. That is why it is not worth forgetting about treatment with the most readily available means, but all diseases that cannot be cured in this "classic" way make people turn their backs on medicine and shift their interest towards natural medicine. It is closer to people and offers clear and simple help. It does not provoke queues or spending fabulous sums. It doesn't matter, and can help. It is worth remembering that both forms of treatment are important and neither of them should be put up barriers.

  • Many excellent traditional medicine doctors live and work in Europe and Poland. Currently, you don't have to go to China, Mongolia or Japan to use their services. You may find the specialist you are looking for in your area. The time when knowledge of Traditional Medicine was knowledge passed down from father to son is history. Many excellent medical schools already train medical doctors in such specializations as clinical acupuncture, traditional medicine, herbal medicine, and eastern massage.

    The country I come from Mongolia is one of the leaders, where huge financial outlays and government support went on to promote natural medical systems.
