In my opinion, Western medicine still is a "developing" medical system. It is still under the way to develop its new theory and find new tools to solve old clinic problems. Ask your western medicine doctor, how many chemical drugs are available in market for more than 10 or 20 years without kicked off and how can he ensures that the medicine he prescribes to you today will not be kicked off the market after several years? If he answers that it is impossible to know the side effects of a drug without testing it in clinic for years, then how brave he is to use an unknown chemical to human? Western medicine is as a car driving in a fog day. It falls into the ditch again and again. Though it can do organ transplantation, kidney dialysis, or gene therapy, it cannot help people to solve disease in an early stage, without spend money to do such things.
On the other side, it can be said that TCM is a kind of "developed" medicine. Its theory about body structure and function, about the relationship between human body and its emotion, spirit; between human being and environment factors, nature factors, universe planets, times, all are established thousands years ago. It is still the "bible" to guide TCM daily clinic work. No any one thereafter can deny the deep wisdom and knowledge in the bible, as well as the accurate of it in clinic guidance. The development of current science can only improve its theory and admit its far advanced knowledge.
TCM focuses to prevent the occur of disease, prevent the development of a disease to later stage. From history, it is the advantage of TCM that makes the surgery in TCM less developed. Surgery is left the only way for western medicine to proud it self, since the developed surgery in western medicine suggests its failure in its ability in internal medicine area. How many diseases can be cured without surgery? Ask this question: if the current western medicine is so advanced, why one out of nine women in Canada have risk of breast cancer? The incidence of breast cancer in China is only one out of thirty women!
