THERE is one good programme on Astro’s CCTV4 channel called Chinese Medicine. It is aired every Wednesday at 10pm, as well as Thursday and Sunday mornings.
It is about how Chinese people use traditional Chinese medicine or TCM to cure their illnesses.
It is amazing to see how simple plant leaves, roots and barks are used to solve health problems.
It is also interesting to see how TCM doctors can identify health issues just by looking at body signs of patients.
Seemingly impossible diseases are cured, which is really mind-boggling.
Apart from that, the programmes have a lot of information explaining the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of health problems.
It is quite enlightening to know what causes certain body aches and pains and how that relate to our own mystery illnesses that bother us for so long.
I love to see this wonderful programme on RTB 1. It is in Mandarin language though but I hope it could be dubbed in either English or Malay for the local audience to understand.
