Explaining Chinese medicine to patients

Explaining Chinese medicine to patients

The great strengths of Chinese medicine include its rich theory base, its individualised approach, and the importance given to promoting self-understanding and self-care. Attending to the internal causes of ill health is often a key factor in achieving sustained, long-term improvement. With experience, practitioners learn how to explain aspects of a patient's Chinese medicine diagnosis in ways that patients can understand and use towards self-care. However, explaining Chinese medicine concepts to patients is difficult and practitioners are largely left on their own to develop a repertoire of explanations and metaphors.
