The practice of Chinese Medicine has a history of over 5, 000 years. Unfortunately, due to the destruction of traditional culture in mainland China, essentially all of the expertise accumulated in the field got wiped out, along with people that inherited them. The end result of this destruction is that the real, pure, original form of Chinese medicine is now close to distinction. The current day services labelled as Chinese medicine is mostly a hybrid with Western medicine, and most of them take the form of implementing Western thoughts with Chinese devices or tools. It should be noted that the healing or curative effects associated with Chinese medicine is associated with the original form, not this new hybrid type, that is why the effects of treatment is not comparable to what it was in the past. In modern language, the original form of Chinese medicine has a documented clinical trial period spanning several thousand years and has been proven to be highly effective. However there is a huge disconnect between what is being practiced today with what it was in the past, thus past achievements in the medical field in ancient China cannot be reproduced. This is not surprising. In a sense, people are given "north American Chinese food", not the original kind, that is why people do not get to enjoy the many benefits that comes with genuine Chinese culture.
