What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?

● Traditional Chinese Medicine was developed in East Asia over 2000 years ago.

● TCM treats the body as a holistic, energetic system that can be divided into functional circles (organs and meridians) that are connected to each other. The aim of the treatment is to restore a balance of these inner elements and of the basic qualities yin and yang. This will strenghten the bodies own healing potential.

● In contrast to western, purely material medicine, which specifically treats individual symptoms or diseases, TCM is more about restoring the balance of body, mind and soul.

 

What is Western Naturopathy?

Medical use of organic healing herbs known from the garden, meadow and forest. The application takes place with capsules, tinctures, tea, or essential oils.

The approach is “western” by concentrating on the detectable ingredients, analogous to conventional medicine.
