Let us see why TCM takes first place in the national cultural heritage of China and why this medicine is important for all humanity.
TCM synthesizes ancient knowledge and skilfully fights against various ailments of mankind. Eastern philosophy has a unique system of views on the relationship of man with the universe: a human being is a microcosm, which is in constant communication with the Universal macrocosm.
The philosophy of Chinese medicine recognizes the universal interconnection of objects and phenomena of the world, the movement and development of the world as a result of internal contradictions in it.
TCM professes the principle “get well while healthy” and “keep your health.” TCM assures that everyone can support health and cheerful state of mind by regular physical activity, taking in the fresh air, by a balanced and varied diet, by a moderate lifestyle.

The doctors of Traditional oriental Chinese medicine believe that their task is to promote the health of the healthy, increase health reserves of the falling ill and treat patients.
