"This program describes the use of herbal medicines, acupuncture, massage, moxibustion, and qigong to restore bodily balance as well as remarkable successes in battling cancer with a combination of Chinese and Western medical techniques. But as traditional Chinese medicine merges with Western medicine; as mass-produced herbal preparations replace hand-compounded mixtures; and as the last practitioners trained in the time-tested ways are replaced by university-trained doctors, will TCM still be TCM?" --Container.
Pain can be totally debilitating to those who suffer. But painkillers, although they merely mask physical discomfort, can make life livable again. This program looks at the three primary types of painkillers, their origins, and their actions. Alternative treatments, such as massage, acupuncture, and relaxation, are also presented as viable alternatives to traditional medications. (25 minutes, color)
