Chinese Herbal Medicine

There are four main categories of Chinese medicine Chinese herbalism, Chinese food cures, Chinese acupuncture, and Chinese manipulative therapies (Lu 1991). They all rest on the assumption that all things in the animate and inanimate world are dynamic interactions (Porkert and Ullmann 1988 73). In terms of health, Chinese medicine sees the individual as a constellation of energy rather than a physical body which is inhabited by a soul or spirit (Porkert and Ullmann 1988 84). Disease is conceptualized as a disturbance in the harmonious balance of energy that constitutes the human being (Porkert and Ullmann 1988). Among the causes of disease are external factors (wind, cold, summer heat, dampness, dryness, and fire), internal factors (joy, anger, worry, thought, sadness, fear, and shock), and two other causes which are neither internal nor external, fatigue and foods (Lu 1991 31). Herbal decoctions2 in conjunction with other modalities within Chinese medicine, serve to restore harmony...

Scientific Research On Nationally Produced Drugs

Unlike most other Scientific Research on Nationally Produced Drugs, which was directed and controlled by Western-style doctors, the research on Changshan was inaugurated, recorded, and officially supported by an enthusiastic advocate of Chinese medicine Chen Guofu. Chen Guofu and his younger brother, Chen Lifu, were long-term political allies of the KMT leader Chiang Kai-shek. The Chen brothers also provided strong political support for the National Medicine Movement organised by the TCM doctors. Chen Lifu served as the first president of the Guoyi Guan (National Medicine Institute) established in 1931, and Chen Guofu was on that institute's board of directors. At the same time, both were deeply involved in constructing a German-style national health administration. From Chen Guofu's side, an important personal dimension was that, having been a victim of TB for 40 years, he had developed a strong interest in medicine. He had While the Chen brothers' interests in medical matters were...

Is There An Alternative Therapy Type

All of the informants in this study were white. Eighteen identified themselves as Canadians of British or Celtic heritage two were British and one, while born in Poland, grew up in Holland and Kenya. Likewise, national survey research from the US reports that up to 82 percent of those who use alternative therapies are white (Eisenberg et al. 1998). However, this is not to imply that using alternative approaches to health and health care is restricted to whites. For example, the informants who took part in Pawluch et al.'s (1998b) study of people coping with HIV AIDS through the use of complementary therapy came from a diverse range of ethnic and racial backgrounds. Furthermore, the relationship between use of alternative approaches to health and healing and ethnic background is greatly dependent on cultural context (Low 2001b). For instance, Asians who make use of Chinese herbal medicine may well define it as traditional rather than alternative and would thus be under-represented in...

Cardamom And Changshan

Both A. tsaoko and A. vilosum are used in the treatment of abdominal pain and congestion, lack of appetite, nausea, and vomiting. A. tsaoko has also been used to treat malarial patients (Li, 1593 Yao et al., 1995). A. vilosum was used in classical Chinese medicine to treat nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, indigestion, gas, loss of appetite, morning sickness, pain and discomfort during pregnancy, and involuntary urination (Time-Life, 1997). Clearly there are a range of options open to researchers seeking a traditional source for the management of nausea associated with D. febrifuga and its derivatives.

An Alternative Model of Healing

While I have shown that there are very real problems in conceptualizing alternative healing residually by distinguishing it from biomedical treatment, residual means of definition proved very popular among the people who participated in this research.1 When I asked Richard how he would define alternative healing, he said, Alternative healing is anything that would not be considered the traditional Western approach to it. And Lindsay told me alternative therapy is Stuff that's out of the realm of typical Western medicine, which Brenda echoed with I guess to me what alternative means is anything which is nonmedical. While Richard, Lindsay, and Brenda were among the few who stated it so explicitly, defining alternative healing by differentiating it from allopathic approaches was implicit throughout all the other interviews. The particular distinguishing criteria used by the people who participated in this research can be grouped into three broad categories the focus and purpose of...

The Focus And Purpose Of Therapy

(Deierlein 1994 McGuire and Kantor 1987 O'Connor 1995 Pawluch et al. 1994 Sharma 1990). Natalie, a practitioner as well as a user of alternative therapies, believes that traditional medicine is definitely not preventative medicine mine's more preventative. Lucy also felt a focus on preventative care distinguished alternative from allopathic approaches. In her words Hopefully you can prevent the disease from occurring. There are diseases today that are horrendous that medication does wonders for, but doctors are totally mystified in preventing. An attendant belief held by these people is that alternative practitioners are looking for the causes of health problems, versus allopathic practitioners who only consider symptoms (Schneirov and Geczik 1996 Sharma 1990, 1992). For example, Lindsay and Greg both believe that allopathic therapy treats symptoms rather than addressing the underlying cause of health problems. According to Lindsay, The problem I have with Western medicine, they treat...

Discovering Changshan And Overcoming Barriers To Entry

Two things were clear from this dialogue. First of all, Chen Guofu became interested in the problem of malaria because he saw it as an opportunity for Chinese herbal medicine to make a contribution to national medical problems. If he succeeded in finding an effective traditional Chinese drug, his success would demonstrate that, contrary to common wisdom, Chinese medicine could also contribute to solving state medical problems. As Chen Guofu's mission was to look for a substitute for quinine, the success of his project inevitably resulted in translating Chinese drugs into just another therapeutic technique in the Western-style doctors' armamentarium, rather than drawing on the theoretical framework of TCM in understanding and managing febrile conditions, of which malaria is one specific type. Second, although the director of the school clinic claimed his ignorance as the reason why he did not take advantage of Chinese drugs, lack of information on TCM for malaria was by no means the...

Changshan In Contemporary China

By way of background to understanding how Changshan came to be developed as an antimalarial in 20th-century China, it is instructive to consider the rise of modern medical research into traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and the relationship between the modern and traditional sectors in terms of influence in the direction of this research. From the early 20th century, the destiny of TCM has been strongly associated with the history of the Chinese state. In 1928, when the Kuomintang (Nationalist Party, KMT) ended the political chaos of the warlord period (1911-1928) and unified China, it quickly established a Ministry of Health at Nanjing. For the first time in its history, China had a national administrative center to take charge of all health care-related issues. The next year, the first National Public Health Conference, dominated by Western-trained physicians, unanimously passed a proposal to abolish the practice of Chinese medicine. However, this resolution had the unanticipated...

The Ethics And Politics Of Clinical Experiments With Changshan

Chinese doctors had clear reasons to adopt the clinical-experiment-first strategy. First, if clinical experimentation were generally accepted as the first step for studying Chinese drugs, to a certain degree the autonomy of Chinese medicine would be maintained. Since clinical experimentation came first, it would have to be conducted more or less in the traditional fashion. On the other hand, if the research procedure on Chinese drugs followed the received program, then immediately after the first step of chemical analysis, the extracted active component would be tested and this would be totally foreign to Chinese doctors. After clinical experiments on the human body showed D. febrifuga to be active (Chen Fangzhi, 1944), the distinguished Cambridge scholar of Chinese medicine Joseph Needham sent the same local herbal drug to K.K. Chen's research group at Eli Lilly & Company (Henderson et al., 1948) and to another American group for animal experiments (Tonkin and Work, 1945). When...

Polypharmacy As A Means To Offset Nausea Induced By D Febrifuga

Amydae carapax, the soft-shelled Chinese tortoise (Trionyx sinensis Wiegmann, family Trionychidae) has been used historically in TCM to correct what is known as yin deficiency. The shell (A. carapax), which contains colloid, keratin, iodine, and several vitamins, may serve to inhibit the hyperplasia of connective tissue and enhance the function of plasma proteins (Ou Ming, 1989 Its direct relevance to malaria cannot be determined from the very limited amount of pharmacological research available, but is best understood within the classical framework of being applied by TCM practitioners to correct what they assess to be yin deficiencies. Naturally, the use of animal species in contemporary applications of traditional medicine raises both ethical issues on animal welfare and issues of conservation of endangered species and their protection as addressed under the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).

Operations for abscess drainage, amputations, cataract operations, tonsillectomy, neck tumor excision, lithotomy, obstetrical procedures, bowel obstructions, hemorrhoids, and anal fistulas were described in the Susruta-samhita long before they were ever adopted in Western medicine. A special chapter in the book is dedicated entirely to the pathology and treatment of fractures.

Tarique Qayumi

Treatment in Chinese medicine was classified into five methods cure the spirit, nourish the body, give medications, treat the whole body, and use acupuncture and moxibustion. The actual process of these treatments ranges from eating the right foods in the right seasons (nourishing the body) to controlling harmony in the body through needles (acupuncture). Surgery, however, is not one of the preferred means of treatment. In the Chinese medical canon, the Nei Ching, surgery is only touched upon twice once as a last means when all other therapies fail, and another time concerning the treatment of ulcers The fairest treatment is to weigh and to consider careful removal, as well as cutting and scooping out exposed and spoiled particles. In fact, in the order of medical practitioners, the surgeons ranked only above the veterinarians, while the pharmacologist came first, the dietary physician second, and the family physician third. 2.

Also, when theory is induced from diverse data, the researcher is less likely to impose his her perceptions of reality on the phenomena at hand (Glaser and Strauss 1967 239). Thus the rigour of this study was enhanced through the use of a variety of sources of information in addition to the primary interview data. This information complements the interview data in a variety of ways (Shaffir and Stebbins 1991). For example, my own experiences as a user of alternative therapies provides me with insider awareness that reinforces the validity of this research (Douglas 1976). Further, the participant observation I conducted gave me a deeper familiarity with the various alternative therapies these informants used and practised, including acupuncture, aromatherapy, astrological healing, bagua, Chinese herbal medicine, chiropractic, Christian Science medicine, creative visualization, crystal healing, ear candling, Feldenkrais method, herbal medicine, homeopathy, hypnotherapy, massage,...

Background

It can further be hypothesised that the plant species in most common use today for the treatment of malaria are among the safest and most effective. Traditional healers constantly experiment with different plant remedies in an effort to find the safest and most effective preparations, and this knowledge is transmitted from generation to generation, either through the oral tradition (as in Africa) or through written manuscripts (as in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda). For a remedy to be in common use, it needs to be not only safe and effective, but also widely available and easy to prepare. These are also important characteristics for a plant remedy to be used as part of a malaria control program.

Acupuncture

Body by means of pathways called meridians (Crockett 1996). It involves the insertion of thin needles into the body at precise points along these meridians these needles are sometimes jiggled to increase the healing effect (Crockett 1996). While some techniques of Western acupuncture are similar to traditional Chinese acupuncture, the healing paradigm it is based on is consistent with a biomedical understanding of health, illness, and the body rather than with the health and healing ideology that underpins traditional Chinese medicine. For instance, medical research has linked acupuncture points to certain types of nerve endings and demonstrated that needling causes the release of natural pain killers (Vickers 1993 120).

Dissatisfaction

Many authors argue that people turn to alternative therapies because they have recognized the limitations of Western medicine and or are, in general, dissatisfied with allopathic approaches to health care (Fulder 1996)7- Similarly, almost all of the people who participated in this study associated disillusionment with biomedicine with their first experiences of alternative therapies. In Hanna's words I found traditional allopathic therapy wasn't helping me at all. The dissatisfaction with medicine expressed by these people took many forms. For some a profoundly negative experience with biomedicine led them to look for alternatives. Below, Lindsay and Hanna describe incidents of what they saw as medical negligence, something which led them to turn away from allopathic approaches. In Lindsay's words, For most other informants, however, a sense of dissatisfaction with allopathic medicine was more all-encompassing and tended to be focussed on discontent with medical professionals on the...

Ancient Greece

Hippocrates (450-370 bc) was one of the leading physicians of the ancient world. He lived on the island of Kos and is recognized as the father of modern Western medicine because he was the first to say that illness was due not to the wrath of the gods but to poor nutrition or disease. Hippocrates believed in assisting the forces of nature to restore harmony in the body and thus promote recovery by using dietary treatments along with fresh air and exercise. This he called his Regimen. Hippocrates believed that if there was any deficiency in either food or exercise then the body would fall sick. A nourishing pottage called kykeon was made of barley with wine and milk as a nutrient (Phillips 1973, p. 77).

Karim Qayumi

The philosophical and medical beliefs of Avicenna may have been controversial at the time for some investigators, however. Michelangelo once said, I'd rather be wrong following Galen and Avicenna than to be right following others. A good example of the strength of his multicultural knowledge is the fact that about 60 variety of pulses were known to Avicenna, 42 of which he inherited from Chinese medicine. He also used alcohol for anesthesia, as was known and was described by Chinese physicians in the first century A.D. He also used opium for anesthesia, as was known in Indian and Persian medical practices. He used ligature and coagulation for hemostasis and retraction for broken bones and spine deformations. It has also been documented that Avicenna performed an operation similar to cholecystec-tomy on the most famous pharmacopist of the time, Al Behroni. Despite outstanding surgical accomplishments for his time, Avicenna was a naturalist. He preferred medical treatment for most...
