East meets West:

Fusion medicine from a global perspective

With Asian medicines and therapies triumphing today in the Western world, the fact that the past millennium has already seen the interchange of a large number of ideas – from East to West, and from West to East – on a large scale is often overlooked. 

Even Western medicine has not developed in complete isolation. Today, in keeping with this global perspective and readiness to embrace a fusion of diverse schools of medical thought, drawing from a more comprehensive variety of the wisdom and treasures of Nature makes more sense than ever. 

Far-Eastern schools of medical thought, such as traditional Chinese or Ayurvedic medicine, regard body and mind as a unit.

As esteemed as it is, Western medicine has regrettably been moving further and further away from employing a spiritual or preventive approach. Its interest is centered on the physiological aspects of acute illness, and viewed through the lens of cause and effect based solely on measurable data. This approach is often referred to as “repair medicine”. Far-Eastern schools of medical thought, such as traditional Chinese or Ayurvedic medicine, regard body and mind as a unit and trust in more emphatic influences. Furthermore, in Eastern medicine, the prevention of disease and maintaining good health take priority. This approach makes it possible to detect warning signs of impending illnesses that aren’t revealed by any MRI scanner or blood test.
