Many people theorize that China is where all of this began. We do not mean the origin of human life but what we do mean is the beginning of acupuncture techniques. Since then, Chinese medicine and Chinese medicinal techniques have been floating around with more or less efficacy for a long time. They have been the number one source of medicine in many countries at the same time as being a source of ridicule in some other cultures. This is a very strange dichotomy and one that is worth thinking about. So, the next time you come across derision towards Chinese herbal medicine, you can tell them that.
In the West
The Western world has had a particularly strange relationship with Chinese herb medicines. We love it in our tea but we are not so sure about it in the general sense of the word. However, that may all soon be a thing of the past because Chinese alternative medicine and herbs are now more incorporated into the economies of Western countries than they ever have been before. If you were to look at the spread on a map, you would see how it is becoming a more and more recognised medicinal technique and school of thought, no matter where you are.
One of the reasons for this is that America (in particular) has been going through a transition of sorts recently. It is well known that areas have become gentrified in recent years and with that has come an explosion of alternative industries, of organic, natural methods and products. Here at New Haven acupuncture we are fitting right in. It is a bonus for our industry but it reflects a change towards green, natural and alternative thinking. We think that it is a great thing and, whilst there is still a general ignorance around Chinese medicine that needs to change, we think things are moving in the right direction for you!
Whatever ails you, you will find a great solution at the Chinese herb zone here in New Haven acupuncture.
