The 'Qi' Effects In Chinese Natural Cures
In western medicine practice, we attack the symptoms of our health problems with aggressive medicines. If we still can’t fix it, we remove it, surgically!
Many illnesses are not curable in western medicine but managed. However, in Chinese natural cures, by harmonizing the energetic faults, the organic and bio-chemical problems can eventually auto-correct.
