Oriental Medicine is the oldest, professional, continually practiced, literate medicine in the world. This medical system’s written literature stretches back almost 2500 years. Currently ¼ of the world’s population uses this system. This is a complete system that does not need supplementation. Oriental Medicine was created by some of the best educated and brightest scholars in Chinese history. These scholars have recorded their theories and clinical experiences from generation to generation in literally thousands of books. It is estimated that almost 40,000 books on Chinese medicine existed before 1900.
