I tried the modern route of healthcare, and it was not helping me any. I guess I cannot really say that, because I was getting some relief. I just thought that it would give me a lot more. I decided to look into some alternatives to see if there was anything that could help relieve me of the pain I was in nearly every single day, and that is how I came to research TCM in Singapore. Traditional Chinese Medicine is something I heard of but did not really understand, but that quickly changed once I started reading up on it.
I knew that it was something that my grandparents and their grandparents before them relied upon, but I thought that it was outdated. When I read that it is very much a healing system of today just as it was for my ancestors, I knew that I wanted to try it. To my way of thinking, how could something that has been around for centuries still be around if there was not some merit to it. As I found out, there is a lot of merit to it. I found out first hand after I went to a TCM clinic not far from where I work.
What I discovered when I went to the TCM clinic is that they definitely take a different approach to improving a person’s health. They don’t try to just treat the symptom, which is what was happening with my doctor. Instead, they want to find out the root cause of whatever is going on. They then develop a treatment plan for that. Instead of just covering up a problem, they find the problem and tackle it that way. Since I switched to TCM, I feel so much better. I am finally feeling hopeful about how I will feel in the future!
