The traditional medicine therapies were used to treat the diseases of the human body in the traditional medicine practice of the great civilizations: Egyptian, Chinese, Tibetan, Indian, Thracian, Persian, Amerindian, etc. Some practices have survived time, and the traditional medicine masters use them in their treatments, trying to maintain the treatment protocol and the administration method described by the ancient civilisations.
Our ancestors used the medicinal herbs as basis of the treatment, increasing the action of the administered curative substances with the help of acupuncture, thermotherapy, massage, physical activity, melotherapy, psychotherapy, etc. This set of therapies act upon physical body, soul and brain, eliminating the causes in the first place and then the secondary effects of a disease.
Eversince my student days, in the Faculty of Medicine, I have studied these concepts, gradually realizing how this is the only medical branch that can provide a physician with all the necessary tools to act in a complete way upon a disease and to recover a patient’s good health condition. I have also realized how the traditional medicine therapies and the naturist medication are the only ones that can treat the diseases of the human body without adverse effects, acting upon the three dimensions of the human being: the physical, energy and mental ones. Approaching the human body from a holistic perspective, the traditional medicine treatments act upon this whole, at the same time treating each organ in particular and the system to which it belongs, a thing that cannot be achieved by the modern therapies, because their treatments aim at balancing one organ without taking into account the system which it belongs to and the disorders existing at the level of other organs.
In emergency, it is recommended to intervene surgically or to stabilize the patient by allopathic methods of treatment (as is the case of cystic formations, uterine fibromas of large sizes, tumors, etc.). If the primary cause of the respective condition in the patient’s body is maintained, there will be relapses of the disease in the future, at the level of the same organ or in other organs, under various forms of manifestation. While allopathic medicine can intervene in these emergency situations by eliminating the effects of the disease, it finds itself powerless when it comes to the treatment of the causes and the disorders that gave birth to the disease. But the traditional treatments act both upon the causes and the side effects caused by the presence of the disease in the body.
At the same time, the traditional treatment cleanses the body and the tissues of bacteria, viruses and their toxins; it stimulates the body’s specific regeneration and defence processes and it balances the organic functions. At cellular level it acts to stimulate the oxygenation and the detoxification processes, being very effective in the rejuvenation procedures.
Analyzing the history of medicine, we will see that the formulas of synthesis medication are based upon natural therapeutic treatments, because in the past physicians administered natural-component-containing mixtures. Our present medicine is trying to replicate these formulas and rebuild their action, yet generally the formulas use only a part of the component with curative effects, therefore also the action of the products used does not match the level of the medicinal-herb-containing recipes. The Creator gave mankind the herbs to maintain and support life, and the natural recipes being the only ones able to maintain the human body’s genetic balance, in order to protect it against the action of the viruses and the bacteria from the surrounding environment confirms the fact. That is the reason why the conventional medicine acts only at chemical and physical level, being unable to act also upon a human’s energy structure or upon his soul component.
Unlike the synthesis medication, herbs can differentiate between the healthy and the sick cells, and they will remove only those with a damaged structure and function, while helping the healthy ones restore the activity of the affected tissue or organ.
In treating a disease and the complex of effects it inflicts upon a patient’s psycho-affective activity, a physician must act appropriately also upon the nervous system, in order to eliminate the stress and the tension caused by the actual disease, the present society’s lifestyle and the patient’s social, professional and family background. The patient also needs to be guided to achieve emotional balance and harmony, too, whatever the circumstances they may be in, because in this way, their body will mobilize all the resources to recover.
The Chinese traditional medicine mentions one other aspect that must be taken into account, namely the human body being made out of five elements; they maintain a body’s balance and ensure a good health condition. This balance and the element-changing-cycle can be restored only by traditional methods of therapy and herbal treatment, because this is the only form of therapy able to act upon the energy structures and directly upon the causes triggering the patient’s illness.
