Tales from the Practice of Medicine: Does Chinese Medicine Work?

[PureInsight.org] One evening, a mother brought her two year-old son to see me. His thumbnail had become inflamed the week before. A western medical doctor had told her that her son needed an operation. She told me that after his thumbnail had become inflamed, she had taken him to the hospital for an injection. After several days of taking medicine, the symptoms became worse and the whole nail was raised. Her son cried all the time and also had a fever. They went to see the western medical doctor again, and he told her that her son needed an operation, but he couldn't guarantee that her son's thumbnail would be saved. Her son was scheduled to have the operation the next day, but she thought that maybe she would try Chinese medicine before she took him for the operation.

I took a look at the boy’s thumbnail and found that it ran with pus at the slightest touch. According to the principles of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements as taught in Chinese medicine, I treated his nail with a pencil-like stick. Then his mother took him home to have a rest. I told her to bring the boy back if he still didn’t feel better and that now the boy wouldn't need the operation. The mother took the boy home doubtfully.

Later, the mother told me that the boy fell into a very deep sleep as soon as they got home. The next day, his thumbnail was in perfect condition. She was so glad and said that now she realized that Chinese medicine is indeed much more effective than western medicine.

The fact that traditional Chinese medicine can have such good curative effects validates what is taught in Lecture Seven of Zhuan Falun in the section “Hospital Treatment and Qigong Treatment”: “Ancient Chinese medicine was very advanced, and the extent of its progress was beyond present medical science.”
