The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China pointed out that the implementation of the "healthy China" strategy should adhere to the emphasis on both Chinese and Western medicine and the development of Chinese medicine. Then, in the context of China’s development has entered a new era, how can we pass on and develop Chinese medicine well?
Inherit well, develop well, make good use of
First of all, this requires Chinese medicine practitioners: First, we must "enhance national self-confidence", don't worship foreigners, don't count the eternal ancestors, any national nihilism is not conducive to the development of Chinese medicine; second, we must "courage the medical peak", do not wait and see, do not Fear of it. Traditional Chinese medicine is the crystallization of wisdom and experience in ancient China. Some theories are even advanced and leading. They must have the courage to climb the peak of medicine. The third is to "deeply explore the essence of the treasure house of traditional Chinese medicine and give full play to the uniqueness of traditional Chinese medicine. Advantage". We must focus on inheritance, absorb the essence from the classics of traditional Chinese medicine and the experience of old Chinese medicine; focus on the advantages, not westernization, ambiguity, metaphysics, vulgarization, and do not take care of the disease, diagnosis, treatment, and care with special advantages. The "heirloom treasures" of the ancestors such as theory and technology have been lost; the fourth is to "promote the modernization of Chinese medicine and promote Chinese medicine to the world", to innovate on the basis of inheritance, to absorb modern science and technology, not to be self-styled, not to stick to the rules. In short, to be worthy of the ancestors, we must be "three good" - "effectively inherit the valuable wealth that Chinese ancestors have left us, develop well, and make good use of them."
Inheritance is good: the classic theory of traditional Chinese medicine and the academic experience of old Chinese medicine experts must be inherited from the original, which is the basis of academic progress and career development. It is often said that "the foundation is not strong, and the ground is shaken." It should be avoided to use some plausible so-called modern theories to interpret, misinterpret, and decorate Chinese medicine. We should try our best to avoid the fragmentation, hollowing, and marginalization of Chinese medicine theory.
Develop well: Consciousness, self-confidence, autonomy, and self-improvement can develop well. TCM treatment focuses on function, dynamics, overall, and macroscopic. Western medicine focuses on structure, static, local, and microscopic, each with its own characteristics and advantages. If Chinese medicine imitates and applies the academic norms and standards of Western medicine, it will inevitably weaken its own characteristic advantages, and it will not be able to play its leading role in the treatment of disease, the synergy in the treatment of major diseases, and the core in rehabilitation. effect. We must independently develop and formulate academic norms and standards for Chinese medicine.
Good use: Chinese medicine is not only a medical science with Chinese characteristics, but also a treasure house containing Chinese cultural elements. It can be used in multiple levels, wide areas, and wide coverage. It can be used to save lives and protect the sick. Beauty and fitness can be used to support old age and longevity; it can be used for healthy tourism, but also for poverty alleviation; it can be used for evangelism and research and development; it can be used for both emerging and ecological construction; Communicating with culture, and using international exchanges, etc.
Adhere to the importance of both Chinese and Western medicine
Inheriting the development of Chinese medicine
The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China highlights the principle of building a healthy China: "Standing on the importance of both Chinese and Western medicine, and inheriting the development of Chinese medicine."
The previous sentence is for the status quo. Because "the emphasis of both Chinese and Western medicine" has been proposed for many years, due to various factors, the actual status quo has not reached "emphasis", regardless of system construction, institutional scale, capital investment, personnel training, service scope, service level, etc. In all aspects, Western medicine is the mainstay and Chinese medicine is the supplement. Therefore, the first requirement is that we must truly "emphasize the importance of both Chinese and Western medicine" and require "persistence", that is, we cannot "emphasize" and not "emphasize" for a while; in this respect, "equal", on the other hand, does not "But it must be treated equally and treated equally. When we look back and analyze it further, we can clearly see that the history of Chinese medicine has been owed too long and too much. For this reason, at this stage, it is necessary to give Chinese medicine the necessary inclination in terms of policy formulation and capital investment. This is one of the important reasons for the promulgation and implementation of the Chinese Medicine Law and the continuous publication of relevant important documents on the development of Chinese medicine by the State Council.
The latter sentence is for the future. Because Chinese medicine is made in China, the country needs to inherit and develop in all aspects, from the preservation of Chinese culture genes, highlighting the advantages of traditional Chinese medicine, making full use of ecological resources, building a simple and convenient medical and health care system, and safeguarding people's health. Pharmaceutical business.
We must respect, learn, and learn from Western medicine. We must "pay equal attention to both Chinese and Western medicine" in our understanding. We must also be self-respecting, self-confident, self-reliant, and self-reliant. We must "inherit and develop the Chinese medicine cause" and use actions and effects to prove that "Chinese and Western medicine are equally important."
