What is Traditional Chinese Medicine? FDA says: NCCAM describes whole medical systems as involving "complete systems of theory and practice that have evolved independently from or parallel to allopathic (conventional) medicine." These may reflect individual cultural systems, such as traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. Some elements common to whole medical systems are a belief that the body has the power to heal itself, and that healing may involve techniques that use the mind, body, and spirit.
Whole medical systems are built upon complete systems of theory and practice. Often, these systems have evolved apart from, and earlier than, the standard medical approach used in the United States. Examples of whole medical systems that have developed in non-Western cultures include traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. Examples of systems that have developed in Western cultures include homeopathic medicine and naturopathic medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Traditional Chinese medicine, or TCM, is a healing system that dates back more than 5,000 years. It is based on the concept that disease results from disruption in the flow of vital energy, or qi (pronounced "chee") in the body. The flow of qi is maintained by keeping a balance in the two forces known as yin and yang. TCM uses specific principles to analyze symptoms—such as cold/heat, interior/exterior, excess/deficiency, and yin yang; and the theory of five elements—fire, earth, metal, water, and wood—to explain how the body works. TCM uses a number of therapeutic approaches such as acupuncture and moxibustion, herbs and other natural products, and massage.
What is Human-Nature Medicine?
It is the application of Human-Nature Science and Applied Engineering(HNSAE) on human body.
Traditional Chinese medicine is a complete medical system which has been used to prevent, diagnose and treat illness for thousands of years. Since the 1970s, it has been gaining in popularity in the United States . In 1998, a Harvard University study estimated that Americans made more than five million visits per year to acupuncture specialists. Traditional Chinese medicine encompasses many different treatment modalities including acupuncture and acupressure, traditional Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese medical massage), moxibustion (applying heat from the slow-burning herb mugwort), nutrition and food therapy, and qi gong (movement and breathing exercises, Energy medicine). All of these modalities are effective ways for treating a wide variety of illness with minimal side effects.
The various modalities of traditional Chinese medicine lead qi, or energy of life, to areas where qi is insufficient and drain qi from areas where qi is stuck. If left untreated, these areas of insufficient qi and blood flow or areas of stagnant qi and blood lead to pain and disease. Through nourishing undernourished areas and clearing out stagnant areas, traditional Chinese medicine promotes the normal balanced flow of qi through the body and restores health. It can be used to treat a variety of chronic, acute, and degenerative diseases and conditions. Traditional Chinese medicine is also commonly used as a method of disease prevention because it can correct small imbalances in qi flow before they become the large imbalances characteristic of a disease state.

Natural Medicine has been successful in alleviating or treating countless illnesses that plague modern patients. Natural Medicine has now been proven in the western scientific paradigm. Research substantiating its clinical, therapeutic claims and investigating its scientific basis has been conducted in the past few years.
Many medical scientists and experts are convinced by the research results that Natural medicine is so unexpectedly powerful and exceptionally effective in restoring health and bringing great benefit to people in China and the USA, as well as in other countries of the world. Natural Medicine has opened up an entirely new realm of healing and enhancing people´s health.

More and more, hospitals are offering their patients alternative therapies in addition to the traditional treatments. Paul Solman of WGBH-Boston reports on one hospitals program:
[From the article] DR. MEHMET OZ: "The majority of the time we had less tumor cell growth in the cells that Frank [Huo] treated than the controls. I´m not going to claim that´s a cure to cancer. All it means is that we saw an aberration in what we would anticipate would occur if me and you both held tumor cells in our hands."
