Can Chinese and Western medicine be integrated?
Chinese and Western medicine are not contradictory but complementary. TCM offers a vast number of effective, safe and non-invasive treatments. These can either complement or substitute for Western drugs and surgeries. An integrative Chinese-Western approach to medicine provides the best possible advantage for each patient.
