Zhong Nanshan: I don’t agree on the integration of traditional Chinese and western medicine

“Traditional Chinese medicine cannot stay at the stage of experience and should adhere to the basis of evidence-based medicine.

Traditional Chinese and Western medicine need not be reluctantly combined, but let them develop independently, learn from each other’s strengths, and make progress together.

Recently, Academician Zhong Nanshan, President of the Chinese Medical Association, gave lectures to “quasi-doctors” at Sun Yat-sen University Medical School and Guangzhou Medical College, and shared his medical experience and system problems with young students.

  Zhong Nanshan believes that traditional Chinese medicine can multiply for thousands of years, and people are willing to accept it, which shows that traditional Chinese medicine has its essence.

Traditional Chinese medicine needs more protection now, but “the” protection “can no longer be said after 50 years. The things to be protected are endangered, and traditional Chinese medicine cannot be endangered.

“But I’m welcome. In these four or five decades, the development of traditional Chinese medicine is not very good, because its research methods have not been updated, or it stays at the stage of empirical medicine. Because old Chinese medicine is very experienced, many people look for himSeeing a doctor, but he may not do well in evidence.

I think that Chinese medicine should use the point of view of modern medicine more. In traditional Chinese medicine, you can find effective ingredients and extract them. It may be helpful to break some.

“In response to the phenomenon that there are too many integrated hospitals of traditional Chinese and western medicine and integrated treatment of traditional Chinese and western medicine, Zhong Nanshan puts forward his own opinion:” In the past few decades, I have proposed that the integration of traditional Chinese and western medicine should not be proved by me. Both Chinese and Western medicine have their own methods.Or, the two should go hand in hand, learn from each other and make progress together.
