although Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is common medical care throughout Eastern Asia, it is certainly not considered a traditional medicine in more Western societies. TCM is typically considered an alternative medicine, or alternative therapy, despite its long history of proven healing techniques.
Chinese herbal medicine is a major aspect of TCM, focusing on restoring, treating and preventing imbalances within the body. Believing that the body, mind and universe are interconnected, Chinese herbal medicine seeks to keep the body balanced and in a state of harmony. It embraces the concept of wellness and seeks to restore the body to its natural state and attain complete wellness. It is a completely holistic approach to healing.
Practitioners of Chinese herbal medicine focus on maintaining health through restoration of a balance among body, spirit and energy, rather than treating a specific disease, ailment or condition. Herbs are a major aspect of Chinese herbal medicine, nourishing the body as part of the balance restoration process. As opposed to traditional medicine, Chinese herbal medicine treats patterns of symptoms and complaints expressed by the patient rather than diagnosing what is believed to be the cause. What we may consider a cause in Western thinking, is merely a symptom according to Chinese medicine. Chinese herbal medicine is also used to prevent diseases from occurring, by treating certain inconveniences one may feel, yet cant be measured by conventional medicine, before a full on disease results.
Chinese herbal medicine uses a specially formulated combination of different herbs and plant extracts to return the body to a state of balance. Some common herbs are becoming more well-known, such as Ginkgo, Green Tea and Ginseng; yet the healing power behind these herbs remain under-acknowledged. Herbal formulas are claimed to treat and prevent infections, hormone imbalances and other diseases, while some practitioners have even claimed to be able to treat and prevent certain life threatening diseases when used in combination with more traditional treatment.
those in the Western World have really underestimated the power of Chinese herbal medicine for far too long. As a result, so many today continue to struggle with common ailments, failing health and an ongoing pursuit of wellness. Fortunately, researchers and scientists are finally beginning to give some proper attention to Chinese herbal medicine and reconsider their original views on its healing power. All Chinese herbal remedies used in the Western World have shown positive results in clinical trials. Isnt it time that modern medicine do what is truly in the best interest of its patients? Wellness can be achieved. Balance can be restored. Health can be achieved and diseases prevented. Conventional medicine needs a change. Perhaps it should look in the mirror and see that, as Chinese herbal medicine knows, a body imbalanced in spirit, energy and body will result in nothing less than disease and poor health not curable by prescriptions, painkillers and medical drugs.

The differential count showsan extraordinary variety oftypes, including many not seenin normal blood (see Fig. 216).The majority of the leucocytesare polynuclears, but many ofthese are atypical in size or inthe shape of their nucleus.From 20 to 40 per cent of theleucocytes are myelocytes (ormononuclear neutrophiles), the infantile form of the poly-nuclear cell. Lymphocytes areabsolutely normal or increased, but their percentage is low, on ac-count of the greater increase of the other forms. Eosinophiles areabsolutely much increased, though the percentage is not much abovenormal. Mast cells are more numerous than in any other disease(1 to 12 per cent, out of an enormous total increase). Normoblastsare usually very numerous; megaloblasts scanty. Under the influence of intercurrent infections or after a?-raytreatment the blood may return to normal.

The total increase of leucocytes is usually much less than in theother type of leukaemia—40,000 or 80,000—or less in average cases.The differential count shows an overwhelming proportion of lymph-ocytes— 90 to 99.9 per cent as a rule. In the acute forms of thedisease the large lymphocytes predominate; in chronic cases thesmall forms. The blood-film is monotonous in contrast with the wonderfulvariety seen in myelogenous leukaemia (see Fig. 213, b). V. The Widal Reaction. (a) Technique. Among the numerous agglutinative reactionsbetween the serum of a given disease and the micro-organism pro-ducing that disease, only one has yet attained wide use in clinicalmedicine, viz., the so-called Widal reaction in typhoid fever. There are many ways of performing this reaction, but in myopinion the following is the best: Measure out in two small test tubes Note About Images Please note that these images are extracted from scanned page images that may have been digitally enhanced for readability - coloration and appearance of these illustrations may not perfectly resemble the original work.
