I appreciate and respect things with tradition, things that are time-tested. Traditional Chinese medicine is the oldest medicine in the world. Its origins date back to the 11th century before Christ. It has always been using gifts of nature for healing, which is the most natural way of treatment.
All the people that can't be help by conventional western medicine are looking for TCM practitioners... A method that treats the consequences instead of the cause cannot help our body.
I believe that we all have a self-healing power in our bodies that we usually damage heavily by our unhealthy lifestyle.
So my suggestion is: reconsider your way of life, start eating healthy, increase your physical activity, take enough rest, make yourself happier and have a bite of a mushroom sometimes :)
