How Does Breast Cancer Begin?
It’s important to note where Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) understands breast cancer begins … not first at the physical level, but at the spiritual and emotional levels where things start becoming unbalanced. These ancient physicians comprehended the invisible reasons for the physical development of breast cancer. They recognized the consequences that result when an individual spirit’s purpose in this reality is disrupted. They saw the problems that developed when the body-mind-spirit connection becomes unbalanced.
At the heart of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the tenet that true healing can be attained by treating the root cause of illnesses and disease. Alleviating symptoms is only a step toward total health. In contemporary terms, TCM is holistic in its approach; it views all aspects of the individual—body, mind, spirit, emotions—as part of a complete whole. It does not see a person as a collection of loosely connected pieces to be treated separately. At its highest level, it treats the person, not the disease.
Applying Natural Law to the Human Body
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an ancient medical system that uses a deep understanding of Natural law and its patterns and applies them to the human body. TCM is not a "New Age" system, nor a patchwork of various healing modalities. It is a complete medical system practiced for more than five thousand years. Its theories of “yin” and “yang” and Five-Element theory honor the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical aspects of an individual.
Traditional Chinese Medicine: A History of Addressing the Root Cause of Breast Cancer
• The earliest Chinese medical reference to breast cancer is attributed to Dr. Yuan Fang Chao in the Sui Dynasty (581-618 AD). It says "... a tiny lump that stays in the breast. This mass is not too hard and not too big. Its shape is like a small irregularly-formed stone."
• The famous Dr. Dan Qi Zhu (1281-1358 AD) comments in his work, "Because the wife does not enjoy a good relationship with her husband, nor does she have good relationships with family members and others, then chronic anger, depression, worry and nervousness will accumulate within her daily. This condition, left untreated, will cause a Spleen Qi or 'digestive system' disorder and Liver Qi stagnation. Eventually this will cause a small lump with the breast that causes no pain and no itchiness. Many years later, this lump will turn into a different shape (like a craggy rock with many holes), which is called 'yan' or cancer. If the lump takes this shape, it is very difficult to fix."
• Around 1400 AD, Dr. Chen in his Wai Ke Zhang Zong states, "These [negative] emotions accumulate day by day and cause Spleen and Stomach Qi deficiency and Liver Qi stagnation. These conditions will cause the body to create a lump. When Qi or energy stagnation accumulates in the meridians over time, a small seed can progress to a cancerous mass. Then the five major organs will spiral out of balance. This problem is called breast cancer." Not Angelina Jolie double mastectomy
