Chinese and Indian Natural Thyroid Therapy

June 16th, 2007

There is a vast difference in the perception of a disease between western therapies and oriental ones. Oriental disciplines of medicine, pathology and therapies have been in existence for many centuries and they have stood the test of time. The purpose of this article is to try to understand the manner in which Ayurveda (ancient Indian medicine) and traditional Chinese medicine view and approach disease with special attention to thyroid treatment.

Traditional Chinese medicine believes that disease occurs when Qi, the basic life energy present in all, is blocked or absent. According to this discipline, Qi is vital to overall good health for each and every individual. And therefore all attempts at treatment focus on reviving the unrestricted flow of this energy. The process aims at restoring positive energy and restricting negative Qi.
