黃帝內經 Huang Di Nei Jing:

“The superior physician prevents the disease;

The mediocre physician attends to impending disease;The inferior physician treats the actual disease.”

In Western Medicine the body is seen as a machine, you try to fix a broken part or take it out. In Chinese Medicine, the body is seen as a garden. If the leaves are wilting or turning brown, you examine the condition of the soil, see if the plant is getting enough water & sun or if the roots are being impinged upon. You don’t just paint the leaves green! ~ From the classic book on Chinese Medicine, "Between Heaven and Earth".

TCM 5 elements, Wood, Fire, Earth, Water, Metal: Can you tell which is which?

According to ancient Chinese wisdom, diet is one of the most important factors in Well-Being. Certain foods can cause imbalance in the body and should be avoided so as not to create a yin or yang deficiency.

2020: Year Of The Rat

The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.

The Rat is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Zi (子) and the midnight hours. In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day.

In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children.
