Some people argue that Traditional Chinese Medicine is effective in treating incurable disease such as AIDS. At the same time, TCM has made a great contribution to health care. However, there are still many opponents who insist that TCM relies on patient experience and not clinical trials for proof of its effectiveness, which is seen as unscientific and thus hard for western people to accept. What is your opinion of Traditional Chinese Medicine? Have you ever accepted Chinese traditional treatment? Did it work?

I'm a big fun of TCM theories, such as the yinyang and wuxing, but i don't trust herbal medicine. The herbal medicine alwasys contains some toxic elements which sometimes can cause serious side effects.

Also, the herbal medicine tastes toooooooooo bad.

Yes me and all my friends so many times. It always worked very fine and everybody felt so much better after the treatment when leaving the foot massage saloon.

Drew told me: I haven't tried TCM, although it is very popular. There are shops everywhere. Acupuncture is somtimes reconmmened by doctors here. I think people want to move away from western medicine because they see it as being driven by profit. Big companies wish to make money by selling you drugs which will only make symptoms go away whilst using them. Also the science is beginning to be held with suspicion. Scientists under the pay of large companies tend to always  find evidence in favor of what there clients want.
