Modern Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine - Diabetes Mellitus 

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Diabetes - Herbal Medicine Treatment

While acupuncture is a distinctive feature of traditional Chinese medicine, China's herbal medicine has many parallels to, and is a part of the general quest for effective medicines to treat illness. Chinese ancestors recognized their dependence upon nature in both health and sickness. Led by instinct, taste and experience, they used plants, animal parts and minerals that did not belong to their usual diet. Until well into the 20th century, much of the pharmacopoeia of scientific medicine was derived from just this type of herbal lore. Today in the United States, about one quarter of the prescriptions dispensed by pharmacies contain at least one active ingredient derived from plant material.

The 20th century has also seen a revival of more natural medicine as an outcome of increasing disenchantment with conventional medicine. By utilizing natural substances together in their whole form in accurate formulations, effectiveness will be maximized and side effects minimized. This is contrary to conventional medicine that extracts or synthesizes active chemicals that often, over time, produce drastic side effects due to their partiality.
