In the face of the arduous task of preventing and treating chronic diseases, the Party Central Committee has always attached great importance to the development of Chinese medicine, adhered to the principle of "emphasizing both Chinese and Western medicine," and incorporated Chinese medicine into the "big health" strategy, becoming the "China program" in the chronic disease era.
On December 6, China’s first white paper entitled “Chinese Medicine in China” was released. As China's society changes from food and clothing to a well-off society, chronic diseases are also inconsistent, seriously threatening the health of the people. The release of "Chinese Medicine of China" is a major event in China's health promotion industry, highlighting the importance that the party and the government attach to the development of Chinese medicine. In the face of today's global "slow disease" era, Chinese medicine has given China a solution. Program.
At present, the main health indicators of Chinese residents are generally better than the average level of middle- and high-income countries. However, the improvement of material living standards and lifestyle changes have also led to an increase in the number of "rich diseases". Hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases have exploded, and "not getting rich first disease" has become a roadblock on the road to the well-off road. The happiness index of the people was discounted. Under the health model centered on “treatment of diseases”, medical resources are overwhelmed, and medical reform has also fallen into the same predicament faced by developed countries.
General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that "there is no comprehensive well-being without the health of the whole people." The Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee made a strategic decision to "promote the construction of a healthy China." The "Healthy China 2030" Planning Outline, which was released recently, establishes the "big health" concept of "promoting health as the center", proposes prevention as the mainstay, moves forward, promotes healthy lifestyles, reduces disease occurrence, and promotes society. Co-construction and sharing, everyone is self-disciplined and achieves the health of the whole people.
In the face of chronic diseases, following the existing path, it is obviously not sustainable, and the transformation of ideas is the fundamental way out. Fundamentally, chronic disease is a lifestyle disease. According to the World Health Organization study, the impact of human behavior on health is becoming more and more obvious. According to statistics, lifestyles account for more than 60% of human health factors, except for genetic and environmental factors. Therefore, prevention is better than cure. Only when the whole society participates in the cause of health promotion can the health of all people be improved, and the patient population can be effectively reduced, and the passive situation of medical care can be fundamentally reversed.
It is in this context that ancient Chinese medicine once again came to the spotlight of medicine. After thousands of years of Chinese medicine, people have always placed people in the first place. After continuous enrichment and development, they have formed a unique view of life, health, disease and prevention, and realized the integration and unification of natural sciences and humanities. "Cure no disease" is the core concept of traditional Chinese medicine. Before the birth of modern medicine, relying on a silver needle and a piece of herbal medicine, Chinese medicine protects the endangered life of the Chinese nation and expands from the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. The philosophy of life in harmony between man and nature. This combination of health and wellness has long been integrated into the Chinese way of life. "The evil spirits thief wind, avoiding sometimes", this kind of health care method that is moving from time to time, still has a strong vitality in the folk. Looking at the world, the rise of modern medicine has made people excited to find the key to open the door to health. However, more people today have seen the limitations of modern medicine. In the face of medical problems, many countries have begun to look at traditional oriental medicine. Chinese medicine has also increasingly shown its unique value.
Today, the Party Central Committee has put forward the goal of safeguarding the health of the people in an all-round and all-life cycle. In the face of the arduous task of preventing and treating chronic diseases, the Party Central Committee has always attached great importance to the development of Chinese medicine, adhered to the principle of "emphasizing both Chinese and Western medicine," and incorporated Chinese medicine into the "big health" strategy, becoming the "China program" in the chronic disease era. We believe that ancient Chinese medicine will rejuvenate in the new era and make new contributions to human civilization.
