About Oriental Medicine - Acumentor

Oriental Medicine, also called Chinese Medicine, is the oldest form of health care in the world and has been effectively treating a wide range of diseases for thousands of years. It is a complete medical system that seeks to create balance and harmony of the body, mind, and spirit and is effective in the treatment of a wide range of health concerns.

Unlike the Western anatomical model which divides the body into individual parts, Oriental medicine is more concerned with systems and functions. In addition, each organ (orb) corresponds with a different emotion or behavioral response. For example, the spleen is not simply an organ but an aspect of physical functions relating to transformation and transportation of nutrients and of mental processes associated with thinking and studying.

However, Oriental medicine and Western medicine do not conflict with one another. In fact, most modern practitioners, both here and in the East, use elements of both. According to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, 51 percent of Western physicians recognize the efficacy and value of acupuncture—which is the primary pillar of Oriental medicine—and refer more patients to acupuncturists than to any other alternative care providers.
