CM 6 The advanced practices of traditional Chinese medicine in Taiwan

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been the most commonly used alternative therapy for health care in China for thousands of years. Interest in complementary 
and alternative medicine is increasing, not only in patients seeking help, but also in researchers investigating the effectiveness of various therapies and interventions. Some of its guiding principles are strengthening the body resistance to eliminate pathogenic factors, clearing the stagnant Qi and blood within the meridians, promoting harmony within organs, balancing blood and Qi, promoting harmony of Yin and Yang, and serving the purpose of curing the disease.

We will talk about the advanced practices of TCM in Taiwan, including acupuncture for disorders of consciousness, laser acupuncture in obesity management, low-level laser therapy for chronic periodontitis, anti-oxidative effects of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge in cancer, and the use of TCM for children.
