Traditional Chinese Medicine

Concept of organic wholeness is the main characteristics of the theoretic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine which is thoroughly demonstrated by the diagnostics of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In diagnosing pathological conditions, deciding the category of disease and differentiating syndrome, Traditional Chinese Medicine emphasizes the entirety.

The human body is composed of various organs, viscera, meridians, constituents and orifices as well as essence, qi, blood and body fluid. Though possessing different functions, they are not isolated. Such an integral association of the human body is accomplished through the domination of the five zang-organs, supplementation of the six fu organs, association of the five constituents and five sensory organs and nine orifices, the extensive distribution of the medicine and the transportation of essence qi blood and body by the of meridians. Therefore disorder of the viscera, essence, qi, blood and body fluid can be manifested on the superficial tissues and organs.

Local pathological changes can affect the whole body and vice versa. So by observing the changes of the five sensory organs, shape of the body, complexion and pulse states, we can get to know the pathological changes of the viscera, essence, qi, blood and body fluid. From local changes one can get to know the pathological changes of the whole body. In this way a correct diagnosis can be made.
