About Asian Integrated Medical Sdn Bhd (AIM Healthcare)
Do you think integrative doctors are the best?
Integrative doctor means a doctor who has knowledge of both TCM and modern medicines. The type of doctor you are looking for must be a qualified from both medical trainings perspective. He will be able to combine the best therapies of modern medicine with the best available of alternative TCM medicine (the best from East and West) and neither rejects modern medicine nor accept TCM uncritically.
Modern medicine is handling well on emergency conditions such as massive injury or a life threatening cases whereas Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture treat root cause, pain management by using natural therapies. TCM has no side effects, inexpensive and invasive compare to modern medicine.
However, the challenge for TCM is not well regulated which lead to rampant of unlicensed or fake practitioners in the market, and cases are reported in the daily news of patients being cheated.
Give you an example of the role of integrative medicine plays in cancer treatment. Cancer patient may need oncologist to remove a tumour or to undergo radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Integrative doctor looks at the patient's body, mind and spirit in totality by using acupuncture and Chinese herb medicine. Modern medicine is focused on destroying the weed while integrative medicine concentrates on treating the soil where weed grows. Cancer patients treated concurrently with acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in order to contain the side effect of chemotherapy like associated nausea, vomiting, appetite loss, insomnia, pain relief and many more. It will increase energy 'qi' and may even prolong the life.
