In recent years, Western Medicine has been catching up with the wisdom that Traditional Chinese Medicine has been promoting for centuries, namely the fact that our mind and bodies are inextricably linked and that to treat one, we must treat the other. The holistic approach of TCM aims to treat the whole person, not just with acupuncture and herbs, but also with lifestyle changes and an emphasis on emotional, mental and spiritual health. This is in contrast to the reductionist approach of seeing the patient as a collection of symptoms that has characterised Western Medicine until recently.
Mind-body medicine has been slowly gathering momentum in the West for decades, and with Lissa Rankin's new book heading to the New York Times bestseller list, it is possible that we are standing at the brink of radical change. At a time when chronic illness is on a steep rise, this comes not a moment too soon.
