I have heard of Western medicine, but Eastern medicine was something new to me. When I got married and moved to Singapore, I realized that more people here are used to incorporating both into their healthcare regimen so I decided to look into that too. I did a search for Singapore TCM and was able to find a lot of great information on it. I had no idea that it had been around for as long as it has been, which was actually very helpful in deciding to seek out even more information.
I liked that TCM focuses on the body and its own ability to heal. I have longed believed this just from when I used to see a chiropractor for a lower back problem I had been having. My doctor wanted to do surgery, but my chiropractor told me that it was not necessary. He turned out to be the one who was right, and that is why this excited me so much. I am all for allowing the body to do what it is designed to do rather than shoving pills down someone’s throat or cutting into them just to try and fix something.
Don’t get me wrong, I know that sometimes those things are needed. That is why I was curious to go where Eastern and Western are both respected. I felt that would be a good balance to explore, and it turned out to be the right choice. My husband even decided to start going when he saw how much better I was feeling after going a few times. Any time I don’t feel good or even if I feel like I am coming down with something, I am going to the TCM clinic to get the help that my body needs so it can repair itself.
