  Title Applied kinesiology chiropractic and traditional Chinese medicine

Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Narrative abstract: In modern Western chiropractic health care we find many similarities between our approach and that of both ancient and present-day Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) doctors or the acupuncture profession. First, we are concerned with the control of organs, glands, and tissues, primarily by way of the nervous system. Rather than give a patient a drug to influence an organ, we find out why the organ is not functioning as it was designed to and then release that interference. This correlates with the acupuncturists’ attempts to balance Chi within the body. Second, chiropractors are concerned with diet and nutrition and lifestyle in order to give the body the building blocks it needs to live, and to be certain there are no adverse chemicals and pollutants interfering with normal body function. This paper presents a detailed explanation of the integration of TCM within Applied Kinesiology Chiropractic, and its justification within modern biomedical science.
