The Beginnings of Traditional Chinese Medicine:
Mixing Together Natural Remedies
Alternative medicine and holistic healing are based off of concepts and
philosophies of an ancient science. At the root of many holistic practices
are the philosophies and ideals that come from Chinese medicine. From
the beginnings of this practice has been a growth in natural methods to
help promote healing and balance.
The beginnings of Chinese medicine as a practice come from the year 800
BC. Even though this practice began before this, it was only recorded
beginning in this year through a book known as the “Huang Di Nei Jeng”
or “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine.” The methods that
were used in this book were based around the herbal remedies that were
most significant in helping with holistic healing.
The idea of this particular book was based off of the Yellow Emperor, one
of the greatest rulers in Chinese history. He is thought to have lived in
4700 BC, and is often attributed as a mythical character with a status of
royalty that provided inspiration to those living in the orient. It is through
this mythical character that this book of medicine is still portrayed under,
with the attribution to the Yellow Emperor’s knowledge that was passed
down holistically.
The beginning of this book included 12 prescriptions through herbs that
were used with a combination of twenty-eight different ingredients. By
the year 220 BC, the book had become so popular that medical services
were established based around the remedies from the Yellow Emperor.
The adjustments that were made from this book included detailed
classifications of the herbs, how they worked, their strength and what
their properties were for healing different ailments.
Overtime, new publications and philosophies were added onto this book in
order to provide practitioners with new methods and substances to the
basis of the Yellow Emperor’s remedy book. These additions provided new
insights and books, all the way into the 1700s with the contribution of the
Theory of Herbal Medicine.
The ancient practices of Chinese medicine through herbal remedies are a
true philosophy that shows how time withstands the ideas of holistic
treatments. Through the growth of herbal practices, several in the East
have found ways to provide insight and balances between different herbs
for better practices to gain energy and balance in one’s life.
The Five Elements of Oriental Medicine:
Assessment through the Natural
One of the major ways in which Chinese medicine determines how one’s
health is relies on the laws of the universe. This essentially means that
any trained person in Chinese medicine will turn towards nature and the
characteristics that are in this environment to determine why one may be
unhealthy. One of the ways that these determinations are made is
through the five elements.
The five elements consist of water, wood, fire, earth and metal. When
looking at these elements, there are certain attributes that are analyzed.
In turn, the analysis that is made will also determine how it is related to
various organs. Not only did these five elements determine the relation of
the elements to organs, but went on to include things such as how
emotions corresponded with these various elements.
The idea of the five elements is to see how everything is interconnected to
each other through the universe. Chinese medicine determines that every
man is a reflection of what is in the universe, meaning that each individual
can be analyzed in direct co-relation to the elements of the universe.
Take for instance if someone is having trouble with their heart or small
intestine. According to Chinese medicine, this would directly relate to
Fire, meaning that it would be linked with the qualities of summer and the
energy of heat. The result of the heart or intestine trouble would be that
the sense organ of the tongue would first be affected. The emotion
associated with this would be either joy or shock. The heart and...
