You are living in a culture where nothing can be conceived if not for material profit.
There was a time when doctors, and teachers, and musicians and all the people who had other passion than making money did their craft as a dedication.
I have the extreme privilege to live part of the year in Bali.
Here people create and re-create beautiful artworks as they have for centuries and remain
remarkably quite immune to western influences.
A lot of doctors are no more than paid mouthpieces for the drug industry
Nowadays they are no longer 'Doctors' in t/true meaning of t/word,
but transparent “pharmaceutical (puppets) representatives”
In this day and age, where the trend to move away from Western medicine
toward a healthier path to health
The term "traditional" is the most accurate description for this array
of Healing Arts that not only transcend time,
but also are integrated in the Philosophy and way of life.
Ancient energetic type healings does not try to "take over"
any of the natural functions and defense mechanisms
in existence within the human body.
For example the fallacy that TCM is in fact an "alternative" medicine lies
in the misrepresentation of "conventional" medicine which, in fact,
is a younger and more recent aspect of medicine.
TCM is an ancient old form of healing and therapy and should thus be
the one called conventional by mere respect to its deep-rooted
cultural and historical background.
