Is Traditional Chinese Medicine for Modern Australian Life?


In recent years there has been an increase in interest and acceptance of traditional and alternative medicines of all kinds across the western world, through out Australia and even in Sydney itself. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine especially have come out of the shadows and into the mainstream. Because of this non-practitioners and skeptics have increasingly found themselves having to ask, “Does it really work?”

Let’s talk about it.

To start, there is no lack of acupuncture in sydney. You can find clinics offering acupuncture Sydney wide and it is absolutely no trouble trying to find Chinese herbal medicine in Sydney. With such a wide spread following, and many seemingly successful traditional medicine practitioners, you almost have to come to the conclusion that it works or that it is one of the best scams in history. Evidence seems to support the former.

For thousands of years acupuncturists and Chinese herbalists Sydney wide and throughout the world have been treating everything from eczema to asthma with impressive results. Thousands if not millions swear by it and will shout from the mountaintops that it has healed their ailments and improved their lives.

But alternative medicine is by no means a completely comprehensive health plan. There are many health concerns that have not been successfully treated by alternative medicine and require modern, evidence based medicine and medical treatment.

So what should you do? Quite simply, whatever makes you feel better and your body healthy is the best answer. Using traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture as a supplement to your modern, western medical treatments can improve your quality of life and your health in ways that you may not be helped by modern medicine alone. Just always be sure to consult with your doctor and your alternative medical practitioner before starting or stopping treatments in either discipline. This is one of those times when it is important that the right hand knows what the left hand is doing and visa versa.
