The Four Deficiencies of Chinese Medicine
In order to promote and introduce new theories on health and dis-ease, based on the unique and advanced scientific theories of Chinese Herbal Medicine, we thought it would be important to divide the idea of Internal Deficiency into four, separate categories. That being Blood, Chi, Yin & Yang. Can a person have a combination of Blood, Chi, Yin & Yang Deficiency in varying degrees? The answer is yes. Because these deficiencies can exist on multiple levels creating extreme complexities and with different degrees, they may take several years to rebuild and recover. Remember that as with any Chinese Medicine concept, the idea of an internal deficiency must be viewed with a very open mind.
We would like to share these deficiencies by listing disharmonies as an important insight to better understand your health and what formulas to purchase. Here are examples of the different deficiencies. This list is not complete, but will give an excellent beginning frame work to use as a focal point to gain an understanding of your own, personal Chinese Medicine Patterns.
