Chinese medicine requires tremendous experience to practice art of healing.

It is difficult to explain (TCM) Traditional Chinese Medicine in scientific terms. Some acupuncturists received government grants after claiming the significance of stomach movement via ultrasound when acupuncture needles were placed on Li10 and St36 points.   However, this has been documented and well known since long ago that Li10 and ST36 points in the areas of meridian has been used for indigestion, non-movement of stomach and to cure stomach diseases therefore, it is not necessary to use ultrasound.   Great forefathers have handed down experiences and it is improper to present the case as if a new theology has been created or invented.   Meridian or acupuncture points are included in records of forefathers who have reached Daotong from high level of experiences.

Experinces that led to results of Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used widely for medical practice to cure diseases but, has also caused adverse reactions or accidents.   From heaven's essence, humans are born but are nurtured and affected by earthly essence to prolong livelihood.   The food that are consumed easily and daily are tasty and have good nutrients for the body but food that are unpalatable and difficult to eat such as bitter, spicy, sour, pungent foods cause the dietary deficiency due to lack of consumption.   In addition, metabolic change might occur and lead to imbalance even with food that has been consumed before.   In turn, special food(herb) has been used to treat these deficiencies but has caused some worsening conditions leading to possible deaths.   Today, prescriptioned herbs has been perfected and advanced from previous experiences from treating the above symptoms, therefore, it should been used with solemn gratitude to those who have contributed to advancement of herbs.

   There is a story of a farmer that raised a hen that was able to eat a fresh egg every day but, starting one day he noticed there were no eggs produced from the hen.   The baffled farmer observed the hen when it was about time to produce an egg, and saw a python swallow the freshly laid egg.
   The farmer thought to himself "I will teach this snake a lesson!".   The farmer carved wood to the shape of an egg and held it to his body and switched the fresh egg with the wooden egg and observed.
   The python appeared shortly and swollowed the wooden egg, climed up a tree and tried to squeeze itself and fell down intentionally to break the egg in it's body.   After a few times the snake gives up trying to break the wooden egg and slidders away but, the farmer followed.   After crossing a water stream and a ridge, the snake ingested herbs that made his ingestion problem disappear and disappeared.  
   The farmer took the particular herbs and started treating patients with stomach problems and the farmers treatment became famous/legendary.
