If Hippocrates met the Yellow Emperor, medicine as we know it would never be the same.  Imagine: a blending of classical medical traditions and wisdom from the East and West. The best of both worlds, courtesy of physicians and healers from centuries past. 

In many ways this scenario is not a fantasy, but a growing reality — a way of life and death. In China, Japan, Australia, the Soviet Union and Europe, doctors and nurses and other health practitioners have used for years a potent combination of Eastern and Western medical practices. Recently, medical and psychological models based on Eastern medicine have flourished in America, Canada and Europe. Many experts believe the day is near when a physician’s technical and biomedical   expertise, and an acupuncturist’s needles and herbal remedies, will complement each other widely in clinics and hospitals around the world. It is time for the integration of Eastern and Western Medicine.
