Comparison Between Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Medicine

Comparison Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Western Medicine
Theory Experimental technology that originates from the Yin and Yang.
TCM focuses on balancing entire system, namely the whole body and the flow of Qi.
Scientific technology, anatomy and chemistry.
Western medicine typically treats a specific system or organ rather than the whole body.
Diagnosis "Wang, Wen, Wen, Qie", which means looking, listening, smelling, asking and touching Modern scientific instruments (blood or urine test, X-ray, ultrasound, etc)
Pros Most traditional Chinese medicines are extractives of plants, animals or minerals. They are more natural for patients. Western medicines treat disease with direct target and take effects in shorter time
Cons It can take longer time to cure disease. Chinese medicine excels in the areas of chronic problems and preventive medicine. Side effects are more likely to happen. Western medicine is in its trauma care and therapies for acute problems.
History TCM has been used for thousands of years About two hundred years, and some western medicines are only used for several decades.
