people too often conflate traditional chinese medicine of the intellectual class of historical china (five element theory, yin/yang concept, chi, meridians, acupuncture, etc.) with rural folk medicine (tiger blood gives u a bigger dick, eating the wrong vegetables summons ghosts, drinking piss cures cancer) and thus dismiss it all. this also goes for reflexology (which comes from europe), crystal dipshittery, aura faggotry, and "chakra healers" who laypeople assume are all the same as an acupuncturist.

traditional chinese medicine is legit, and it works, if you can sift away all the stupid shit the modern consumerist world heaps alongside it. i personally had a grade II sprain in my lumbar spine (confirmed by MRI) completely cured through a handful of acupuncture sessions with an old expert. also been to a popular acupuncturist in taiwan, he cured my chronic foot pain in 1 session. anecdotal sure, but the studies are out there. the us army wouldnt be paying for it to treat ptsd if there wasnt scientific evidence of its efficacy.

you may say the model of the 5 elements and the meridians is foolish, but the same can be said about the old "nuclear model" of the atom, which we have now replaced with the "probability cloud" model. although the model may not be 100% accurate in its immediate representation of the thing it models, the systems of logic and rationale applied through it can still be used to solve complex and advanced problems that perhaps a western approach would not.

I'm glad to see some good press for chinese medicine. Americans don't often know, but in China most people regularly seek out both traditional and modern medical treatments.
