There are many kinds of practices of traditional medicine, which is the use of natural products and long-established medicines. A holistic approach to life--equilibrium of the mind, body and the environment, with an emphasis on health rather than on disease--is also a common philosophy. The focus is on the person’s overall condition rather than his/her particular ailment or disease. The use of herbs is a core part of all systems of traditional medicine.
Valhalla Wellness & Medical Centers combine alternative medicine with standard medical treatments. Offerings from the latest in lab testing equipment to wide-ranging supplements and botanical treatments play a part in assisting patients achieve optimum health.
While Valhalla Wellness’s care may not include every single aspect of traditional medicine, here is an overall view of the topic.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an important example of how ancient and accumulated knowledge is applied in a holistic approach in present day health care. TCM has been around for more than 3,000 years! The book The Devine Farmer’s Classic of Herbalism was compiled about 2,000 years ago in China and is the oldest known herbal text in the world.
Many people in developing countries still rely on traditional practitioners and herbal medicines for their primary care. In Africa up to 90 percent and in India 70 percent of the population depend on traditional medicine to help meet their healthcare needs. In China, traditional medicine accounts for around 40 percent of all healthcare delivered and more than 90 percent of general hospitals in China have units for traditional medicine.
On the other hand, the use of traditional medicine is not limited to developing countries: In the past 20 years, public interest in natural therapies has increased greatly in industrialized countries. As long ago as 2007, about 38 percent of adults and 12 percent of children in the United States were using some form of traditional medicine.
