Chinese Medicine (CM) has its origin more than 2500 years ago, greatly influenced by the teachings and written works of great herbalists, acupuncturists, philosophers and physicians. They emphasised man’s relationship to the environment, considering the human body to be a mini universe governed by opposing forces (yin-yang) which kept the body working in balance and harmony. In health, the opposing life forces of yin and yang were in balance while in illness there was an imbalance. CM studies the person in health and disease from the aspects of prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation in a holistic manner. The range of treatments in CM include herbal therapy, acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, tuina, bone and spine manipulations, dietary therapy, exercise therapy like qigong and taijiguan.
Currently, there is a worldwide trend to integrate certain Chinese medicine practices like acupuncture and herbal remedies to complement the management of pain and reduce side effects of drugs used to treat chronic diseases. Today many universities in Australia, Canada, the United States of America, Europe, including France in addition to China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore have degree and postgraduate degree courses in Chinese medicine.
Traditional Chinese Medicine in Malaysia
The Ministry of Health (MOH), Malaysia recognises that a large proportion of its multiethnic population consults CM practitioners and use other traditional and complementary medicine (T&CM) practices with importation of herbal products being 3 to 4 times the value of allopathic products. The Complementary Medicine Unit in the MOH coordinates and implements policies related to training and registration of practitioners with the aim to integrate T&CM into the national healthcare delivery system. It introduced standards for courses at diploma and degree levels to be enforced by the Malaysian Quality Agency (MQA). The Traditional and Complementary Medicine Act once passed by Parliament will regulate the T & CM practices.
