Eastern medicine combines numerous therapies and medical systems that seek to assess and treat each person as an individual. While there are many medical systems such as herbal medicine, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and Reiki developed prior to the era of modern medicine, there are also several newer therapies including Chiropractic, Podiatry, and Homeopathy, that are also based on the philosophy of treating the person as a whole.
Interest in Eastern medicine, whether as an alternative, or to complement treatment of specific conditions is growing. Whether driven by rising medical costs, a desire to treat naturally or seek alternatives to allopathic (cause and effect based) treatment of conditions the interest in Eastern medicine continues to grow. Through careful observation trained practitioners assess the various systems of the body and prescribe a combination of mental, physical, medicinal and dietary changes to treat the underlying cause of the condition affecting the individual.
