Our show’s focus will be to educate you on the merits and the practice of Chinese Medicine within the healthcare framework of the US and around the world. We’ll help clarify the vague notions held by many by explaining in practical, down-to-earth way. Our guests will include Chinese Medicine practitioners to clarify and respond to the media’s coverage of Western Medicine’s often mistaken perspective of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. We plan to have a public dialogue between Chinese Medicine practitioners and Western Physicians as to how we can collaborate to help give our patients a better quality of life. The program will show how a myriad of conditions and problems can be addressed, even conditions that have no Western Medicine diagnosis. A basic discussion on what Traditional Chinese Medicine is and how it works can be incorporated into the framework of each show.
