My wife is a TCM practioner so that is always the first port of call. However, she does accept that in some cases Western medicine is more effective. I have to admit to being rather cynical on the subject but like to keep the peace.

Whether Chinese or Western is chosen it can be difficult to know if either was successful as the problem might have cleared up with none at all. There is also the placebo effect to consider.

By which time scientifically based medicine might come just too late.

I had ever been a trainer in a chinese medicine institution, and knew theory of TCM is wonderful but the essence of TCM drug have almost been exported, in addition, lack successors of TCM, so the importance of judging the effection of TCM is if you can find the real specialists and good TCM drug, the theory of TCM is not wrong.

TCM is difficult but not impossible to find in the States. However, if you go to your local GNC, many supplements being sold have Chinese herbs or medicines in them. Many western medicines are derived from plant based materials, so TCM does have it's place in society.
Maybe eating the right foods is the best medicine to prevent many of the chronic deceases we see today. That doesn't mean KFC or McDonald's, but a more organic whole food that exclude the chemicals needed to grow and or preserve it.
