Overview

TCM is built on a foundation of more than 2,500 years of Chinese medical practice that includes various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, and diet therapy.

It is still the main form of medicine to many Chinese today. With more research being done, and greater worldwide interest in natural products, TCM is increasingly recognised as a viable form of alternative medicine in other parts of the world.

One of the basic tenets of TCM is that "the body's vital energy circulates through channels, called meridians, that have branches connected to bodily organs and functions."

TCM concept of disease

Disease is perceived as an imbalance in the functions or interactions of yin, yang, qi, xuĕ, zàng-fǔ, meridians etc. and/or of the interaction between the human body and the environment.

Therapy is based on which "pattern of disharmony" can be identified.

Diagnostic methods in TCM

In TCM, there are 5 diagnostic methods: inspection, auscultation, olfaction, inquiry, and palpation.

  • Inspection focuses on the face and particularly on the tongue, including analysis of the tongue size, shape, tension, color and coating, and the absence or presence of teeth marks around the edge.
  • Auscultation refers to listening for particular sounds (such as wheezing).
  • Olfaction refers to attending to body odor.
  • Inquiry focuses on the "seven inquiries", which involve asking the person about the regularity, severity, or other characteristics of: chills, fever, perspiration, appetite, thirst, taste, defecation, urination, pain, sleep.
  • Palpation

CAN TCM PHYSICIANS IN S'PORE DIAGNOSE EVERYTHING JUST BY TAKING YOUR PULSE? THIS NO-HOLDS BARRED Q&A REVEALS ALL

Can TCM Physicians In S'pore Diagnose Everything Just By Taking Your Pulse? This No-Holds Barred Q&A Reveals All undefined

Conventional methods don’t necessarily equate to being the most effective. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been steadily gaining traction in Singapore and plenty of folks seek out all kinds of cool (and intriguing) TCM treatments like herbal medication, acupuncture and cupping.

Let’s face it. Many of us have a strange and profoundly inexplicable fear of any medicinal practices that lie outside the norms of the mainstream, viewing them with a slightly raised eyebrow (or two) and even dismissing them outright as new age mumbo jumbo (even though they are often ancient).

It probably goes without saying that these fears aren’t always justified. After all, it's been officially recognised and regulated by MOH since 2004. Furthermore, shouldn’t ancient techniques that have been applied over centuries of practice (since before you were crawling around in diapers) hold some degree of weight?

Physician Lee Jin Shun, a registered TCM physician with Eu Yan Sang has a thing or two to say about this.

DxD Sessions features his opinions on TCM treatments in Singapore as he answers the most common questions surrounding the topic.
