The Beginnings of Traditional Chinese Medicine: Mixing Together Natural Remedies Alternativemedicine and holistic healing are based off of concepts and philosophies of an ancient science. At theroot of many holistic practices are the philosophies and ideals that come from Chinese medicine. Fromthe beginnings of this practice has been a growth in natural methods to help promote healing and balance. The beginnings of Chinese medicine as a practice come from the year 800 BC. Even thoughthis practice began before this, it was only recorded beginning in this year through a book known as the“Huang Di Nei Jeng” or “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine.” The methods that wereused in this book were based around the herbal remedies that were most significant in helping withholistic healing. The idea of this particular book was based off of the Yellow Emperor, one of thegreatest rulers in Chinese history. He is thought to have lived in 4700 BC, and is often attributed as amythical character with a status of royalty that provided inspiration to those living in the orient. It isthrough this mythical character that this book of medicine is still portrayed under, with the attributionto the Yellow Emperor’s knowledge that was passed down holistically. The beginning of this book included 12 prescriptions through herbs that were used with a combination of twenty-eight differentingredients. By the year 220 BC, the book had become so popular that medical services wereestablished based around the remedies from the Yellow Emperor. The adjustments that were madefrom this book included detailed classifications of the herbs, how they worked, their strength and whattheir properties were for healing different ailments. Overtime, new publications and philosophieswere added onto this book in order to provide practitioners with new methods and substances to the basis of the Yellow Emperor’s remedy book. These additions provided new insights and books, all theway into the 1700s with the contribution of the Theory of Herbal Medicine. The ancient practices of Chinese medicine through herbal remedies are a true philosophy that shows how time withstands theideas of holistic treatments. Through the growth of herbal practices, several in the East have foundways to provide insight and balances between different herbs for better practices to gain energy and balance in one’s life.The Five Elements of Oriental Medicine: Assessment through the Natural One of the major ways inwhich Chinese medicine determines how one’s health is relies on the laws of the universe. Thisessentially means that any trained person in Chinese medicine will turn towards nature and thecharacteristics that are in this environment to determine why one may be unhealthy. One of the waysthat these determinations are made is through the five elements. The five elements consist of water,wood, fire, earth and metal. When looking at these elements, there are certain attributes that areanalyzed. In turn, the analysis that is made will also determine how it is related to various organs. Notonly did these five elements determine the relation of the elements to organs, but went on to includethings such as how emotions corresponded with these various elements. The idea of the five elementsis to see how everything is interconnected to each other through the universe. Chinese medicinedetermines that every man is a reflection of what is in the universe, meaning that each individual can beanalyzed in direct co-relation to the elements of the universe. Take for instance if someone is havingtrouble with their heart or small intestine. According to Chinese medicine, this would directly relate toFire, meaning that it would be linked with the qualities of summer and the energy of heat. The result of the heart or intestine trouble would be that the sense organ of the tongue would first be affected. Theemotion associated with this would be either joy or shock. The heart and the small intestine will alsotrigger bitter taste that someone will respond to. The idea is that everything in the external universe isdirectly aligned with the internal. In order to be completely healthy, or to get holistic health, the five
