I am a doctor of western medicine spending my early study in
Germany and I’ve been
clinical medicine over 30 years. I have also won many National
Science and Technology Progress Awards in medical research.
However, because of the contradiction between its theory and
clinical practice, as well as the limitations of itself I
gradually put forward many questions that
why have we paid such a heavy cost and pain for good health and
Doesn’t our human civilization have more safe and scientific
methods of treatment?
Suggestions on canceling western medicine:
1. Western medicine theory is established on the basis of
mechanical materialism and metaphysics. Although the research on
tissues has reached molecular and cellular level,
western medicine has greatly deviated from the organic
connection of human body due to its world view. For example,
is an organic combination, yet, for the sake
of research convenience
western medicine concentrates on individual study of every
single tissue and organ at first. Just like the earth, seen as a
borders are divided artificially, but actually we cannot
consider the borders when we study the earth.
The toxic and side effects of western medicine are too much and
often exceed its curative effect, which contradicts with our
green and environment-protective
(1) Slight illness
serious one. For instance, after gallstone operation, there is
no fundamental solution to the causes of the formation of stones
so they can only re-generate in the hepatic duct. Therefore,
patients get another illness of hepatolithiasis from the primary
(2) The damage caused by side effects of western medicine often
exceeds its curative effects. As a result, during the treatment
of many chronic diseases, primary disease is not cured, but more
diseases appear and they are even more serious than primary
ones, such as
application of hormone medicine, original disease cannot be
cured and even more diseases are produced, eg: osteoporosis,
high blood viscosity, masculine, reduction of immunity, obesity,
moon face, sexual dysfunction, etc.
the side effects of some western medicine have
an incubation period of more than ten years, and
even break out in next generation. For example, tetracycline
tooth event which happened in 1960’s caused people of that time
facing with black teeth a dozen years later. For another
instance, painless childbirth became popular for a period in
1970’s and 1980’s, resulting in 4-5 times higher risk of uterine
cancer for the next generation girls.
(4) Observe carefully and you will find none of a disease can be
really cured by western medicine in clinical practice especially
in internal medicine system.
Patients are under treatment repeatedly throughout the year,
hospitalized and discharged
repeatedly, over and over again are in hospital and
eventually end up their lives. Apart from making money, what
else does hospital bring for patients’ health? Actually, in
order to satisfy the rules of "Eight Great Rate", most patients’
conditions are not much different
from hospital, some of them become even worse.
Western medicine has developed into 21st century
today, giving a false impression of being well-developed and
very modern. But people with some medical knowledge will know
none of these diseases can be really solved by western medicine,
such as viral diseases, genetic diseases, autoimmune diseases,
endocrine disease, neurological diseases and multiple organ
diseases, etc. So is this medical theory scientific? It is very
likely that western medicine has misled people in the struggle
3. Clinical use of medicine lacks
scientific basis. Due to deviated theoretical
world view, clinical use of medicine is just like
operating the machine, making treatment mechanical.
long as it is the same kind of illness, treatment plan is pretty
from the professor to rural doctors, regardless of
different stages, different physical conditions, and different
conditions. Can it be scientific?
4. Therefore the existence of western medicine has reached the
end of its historical mission! Learning
from western longitudinal
knowledge on the basis of criticizing and inheriting, ultimately
to complete human health career and realize
organic integration of
"vertical" and "horizontal", human civilization surely will
produce a kind of new medical science. In fact, many people in
western countries already have a doubt on its scientificity.
Most of them prefer natural therapy when they get sick, but our
Chinese people are still regarding the abandoned dregs as
All science must be based on respecting the facts! Although the
following report sounds extreme, this is the conclusion
investigated by a scholar and we have to respect the facts!
Swiss scholar Hans Ruesel made an
investigation in Colombia,
United Kingdom, the United States and Israel, and made a
conclusion that if
there is no western medical doctor working there,
the mortality rate would get reduced 50%.
This is not a small number, which means if there is no western
medicine diagnosis and treatment, 50% of patients could avoid
death (perhaps they had no disease, but according to diagnostic
methods of western medicine, they were "sick" and eventually
they end up their lives in the course of treatment by western
medicine). Being treated by western medicine in the name of
science the 50% patients spent their hard-earned money to meet
the interest of western medicine but finally died! Is this
"scientific"? Is this so-called "science" making patients die
Western medicine simply does not exist
and it is just device-oriented.
The major progress of western medicine in 20th
century was the diagnostic methods. However, strictly speaking,
that progress was based on optical, mechanical and electrical
technology rather than medical advances.
For example, enteroscopy is something like a small grain of
capsule, actually a micro-camera with light source, able to
shoot the internal situation of the small intestine and pass it
to the receiver through the radio waves, then the received
signal is transferred to the computer for processing. Is this a
medical progress or advancement of optical, mechanical,
electrical technology? The most advanced diagnostic equipment in
large hospitals, such as CT, color ultrasound, MRI, etc., are
the progress of optical, mechanical, electrical technology. Of
course this kind of technology is not only used in the
diagnosis, but also in the treatment. I have a friend
specializing in computer, invented an electrochemical instrument
for cancer. I was very surprised a person does not understand
medical theory, how could he invent an electrochemical
instrument for cancer? I now
recognize as long as you can find some technique to kill cancer
cells, you do not need to know the etiology of cancer or medical
theory. Those who invented CT, colonoscopy and gastroscopy all
neglect the complexity of human body, they just regard human
body as a machine consisted of numerous parts. "(Quoted from Han
Deqiang, Beijing University)
Western medicine is experimental just like crossing a
river by feeling its way over stones.
Western medicine always changes its theories from time to time.
Western medical experts have announced a scientific research
that "taking vitamin can prevent aging." But according to last
year’s research they suddenly claimed that long-term use of
vitamin would lead to cancer, which made those who following
and using vitamin for a long time in a great
(2)Western medical authorities warned that menopausal women
should take hormones in order to prevent coronary heart disease
and improve the menopausal syndrome. Therefore, many American
women take hormones as they told, but according to the latest
research, taking hormone cannot prevent coronary heart disease,
on the contrary will lead to a significant increase in incidence
of ovarian cancer. This makes many women filled with horror.
Cholesterol was regarded as a major cause of cardiovascular
disease, yet this claim was later
overturned by medical researchers that cholesterol could prevent
2. The typical characteristic of
medicine is random and always keeping on trying.
The knowledge which
is regarded as truth by western medicine will be denied
by itself. Just like a monkey trying to touch the high voltage
wire, consequently die at once. Western medicine is on the basis
of experiments, perhaps it will bring irreparable disastrous
consequences at any time. For instance:
(1) In September 1999, Geissinger, from Philadelphia America, a
patient of 18 years old suffering from a genetic disease was
treated with an
therapy at the institute for human gene treatment of
Before treatment the doctor encouraged Geissinger and said that
wouldn’t have problems, once it was successful the
therapy could help other genetic diseases patients like himself.
So he agreed to do the
with great dedication.
However, he and his family were not told about the side effects
and dangerous consequence that might occur in the course of
The doctor injected a cold virus of exogenous gene into his
lungs, soon he died of multiple organ failures on September 17.
In 1982, many agranulocytosis patients were found in
European and American countries. They
lost defense capabilities in a variety of infections and were
easy to have inflammation and fever.
After following 11 years medical efforts, doctors eventually
found out it was due to antipyretic analgesics amidopyrine,
while this medicine had been used for 40 years.
In 1995, a large number of blind cataract patients appeared in
the European and American countries, the
of those patients were
obese women. It's proved that
the reason was application of diet pills
In 1999, the hypolipidemic medicine triparanol was launched in
the US. Although the curative effect is better, some side
effects such as hair loss was brought to the patients. In
addition, it also caused many patients suffering from cataract.
(5) In 2000, some western countries found the new medicine
ying ting" for relieving pregnant vomiting reaction but it
caused 1200 fetuses similar to seals, lacking of
Japan, due to long-term use of nitrogen iodine
quinoline many people suffered from blindness and lower limbs
(6) In 2002, more than 300 young girls with vaginal
adenocarcinoma were found in the USA. Later it was proved to be
associated with fetus protection medicine during pregnancy
period of their mothers.
Another example: radiotherapy and chemotherapy are strongly
suggested for cancers. But years later western medicine claims
it is wrong and we can't do that. Western medicine keeps
updating itself constantly. But who
is responsible for those were treated to death by the advanced
high-technology? ---In accordance with the constant
self-updating logic, all patients are lab rats. Western medicine
will never find a stable method of treatment---even there is a
stable one, it should be abandoned soon. Only with self-updating
can western medicine prove the stupid philosophy “keeping
self-renewing is scientific”.
3. Western medicine only sees the minor issues but misses the
Without overall views, western medicine only sees the minor
issues but misses the major root. The harmful effect is beyond
control until problem is very serious.
Some immune suppressant
medications such as
aminopterin and bimolane
can relieve patients rapidly by inhibiting the synthesis of DNA
and the increased proliferation of epithelial cells. But at the
same time it caused a great damage on
blood cells. Patients will soon have hair loss, vomiting, mouth
ulcers, etc. Some will suffer from liver and
kidney function damage in a short time.
The worst thing is that,
leukemia caused by western medicine has been
reported more and more in recent years.
In this situation, patients couldn’t yet stop these
medications, because the disease will recur when stopping them.
What could be done if it recurs? Patients have to take
hormone medicine again. Long-term and large application of
hormone medicine violated
evolutionary principle of “use and disuse” and inhibited the
Although western medications can bring
once you stop
them, body's endocrine function is
and couldn’t be self-sustainable
to ensure supplies, which
leading to rebound
phenomenon and making the primary disease worse
quick solution for treatment almost results in loss outweighing
4. Western medicine provides treatment by “treating the head
when the head aches”.
Western medicine is experience-based on diagnosis and treatment.
It pays too much attention to the phenomenon but ignores the
essence, emphasizes the parts but neglects the whole. As a
result, partial symptoms seem to be effectively alleviated, but
the overall physical condition isn’t changed substantively.
Therefore, the condition of a patient appears to be improved,
but actually there is a huge risk around it. Ultimately, a small
disease turns to a serious one, and a single disease accumulates
to multiple troubles.
With the improvement of living quality over the past decades,
the number of patients also increased. More and more patients
suffered from multiple diseases as well as died suddenly from
acute or serious diseases. Some so-called experts put blame on
the changes of living environmental conditions, but hardly
realize the change of medical condition is the root cause! The
more people become dependent on western medicine, the more
serious this situation would be! Strictly speaking, western
medicine is trying to control diseases rather than cure them.
5. Western medicine provides treatment through “one scalpel
for all diseases”
Whether a treatment could work and whether some difficult
diseases can be cured will depend on the internal cause, on
whether the normal control system in human body could be
activated to function properly.
For example, western medicine is too much dependent on external
factors. The most extreme approach is "one scalpel for all
diseases". As long as there is a scalpel, there will be “an
operation” on the affected part – “greater, faster, better and
more economical”. If so, everyone can be a doctor in the future.
Theoretically, if the root cause is removed, the disease should
disappear. So if the malignant tumor is removed, there should be
no cancer in patient’s body. However, the reality always gives
an opposite answer to that. Why don’t people think of it over
again? The root cause of a disease does not definitely exist
where the symptom occurs. It merely equals to a temporary
warehouse or transforming place. Only with the appropriate
approach and an opportune moment, diseases is possible to
disappear through internal factors, however, if you remove it
with the scalpel, leaving no room for virus to go, no wonder
cancer will spread.
For another example: surgery for stones
Removing partial organ with stones will surely guarantee no
stones anymore. Because this organ has already been sent to hell
and cannot be regenerated. Gall bladder having been removed,
there won’t be gall-stone regenerating anymore. The right kidney
removed, there will be no more right kidney-stone. If everyone
is sent to the hell, then the whole human race will have no more
Although surgery that removes cholecyst will ensure no further
gall-stone, visceral organs and tubes leading to the gall and
closely associated with it remain, and the factors to generate
stones have not been removed. Therefore, patients receiving
gall-stone removal treatment would have re-generated stones
inside their bile duct, common bile duct, and extrahepatic bile
duct as soon as in one to five years and as late as ten years
later, the pains are more unbearable, and the physical condition
is feebler. Helplessly, the patient would have to choose to be
cut by another operation. Please try to think about how many
people have no recurrence of stones after taking surgery? Some
doctors suffering from gall-stone also believe they have no
other choices but practice surgery. One doctor at his thirties
had seven surgeries to remove stones in one year! Who knows when
this could come to its end?
Many surgeons repeated four or five times, even ten times to
give their patients operations. Patients allow themselves to be
treated by doctors without thinking. Why does the stones recur
after being removed? Why don’t people think about the root cause
of the disease? The director of one provincial hospital told me
in our conversation that “Nowadays the ability of a surgeon is
not valued by whether he can cure the patients, but whether he
can cut that piece of muscle.”
This therapy is called "chive-cutting treatment". Without
eliminating the pathogenesis, it is still going to grow. Then a
doctor continues to cut, the patient is getting weaker and
weaker. Eventually, patient may not be killed by disease, but
consumed life little by little!
Another example of treatment for uterine fibroid, it can be cut
this year, the next year, and even the year after next. If
there’s nothing more to be cut, the entire uterus will be
removed – what will happen to a poor woman who lost her womb?
Meanwhile, it is also an example to prove from another angle
that the theory of traditional Chinese medicine is focusing on
seeking internal factors is truly scientific and accurate. Its
philosophy to solve problems by seeking internal factors
provides advanced theoretical guidance.
Some medical specialist, please do not deceive yourself as well
as others, it’s time to wake up.
1. Everything in science must be based on respect for objective
facts! In today’s world where western medicine becomes rampant,
western medicine-induced diseases have become one of the major
diseases in America, such as heart disease, cancer, lung
disease, and stroke. Harvard academic research shows that the
annual number of deaths due to wrong treatment has reached
157,000, more than the total number caused by car accident,
arson and homicide. No wonder medicine trading is forbidden in
America. This shows the American people have realized the true
effects of western medicine. There is a saying very popular in
America that “to buy antibiotics is harder than to buy guns”. It
means antibiotic is regulated strictly that it can only be sold
with doctor’s signature. Even though medicine is strictly
controlled and patients are only allowed to take medicine under
doctor’s advice, there are still countless patients died from
western medicine treatment and were poisoned to death! So many
people are poisoned by western medicine in a country that free
medicine trading is forbidden. There would be more people are
poisoned in other countries where free drug trading is allowed!
2. Everything in science must be based on respect for facts!
World Health Organization (WHO) pointed out that "One-third
patients in the world did not die of disease itself, but from
unreasonable use of western medicine." The figure in cancer
treatment is probably far larger than this rate. (Transferred
from "Marketing Newspaper of
People's Daily" July 4, 2001.)
3. Everything in science must be based on respect for facts!
According to statistics, about 192,000 people in China died from
adverse reactions to western medicine every year, which close to
the annual number of deaths caused by smoking diseases.
Meanwhile, it is shocking that the annual number of patients
admitted to hospital due to adverse reactions to western
medicine has reached 2.5 million.
4. Everything in science must be based on respect for objective
facts! In Japan, a pathologist found at autopsy that about 50%
death is related to side effect of western medicine. Most
traditional Chinese medicines have been tested for thousands of
years! But how many western medicine have been used for more
than one century? Clowns who are
against Chinese medicine, why don’t you dare to answer that?!
Clowns against Chinese medicine, can you make sure the western
medicine you take today won’t be banned tomorrow?!
Everything in science must be based on respect for facts! More
seriously, some western medicine
can also cause cancer, namely "medicine-induced cancer", which
has become common knowledge in medical circle. For example,
taking compound aspirin and pain-killer
tablets can cause kidney and bladder cancer. The incidence rate
reaches 9.5% among long-term users of these drugs. Commonly used
hypotensive medicine reserpine can cause breast cancer,
especially for menopausal women. Commonly used chloramphenicol
can lead to acute leukemia. Furthermore, it is known to all that
chemotherapy medicine for cancer will lead to new cancer. For
another instance, commonly used cyclophosphamide can lead to
lymphoma and leukemia; azathioprine can lead to cervical cancer,
squamous carcinoma, etc. According to statistics, millions of
people with leukemia and cancers are caused by western medicine
in nearly 10 years. Most of them have died.
Previously, "Baili Maidou" for pregnant
vomiting was declared scientific after research in
western medicine laboratory. Subsequently, the side effect
produced thousands of deformed infants!
Today, "Baili Maidou" is listed as banned medicine, finally
leading to bankruptcy for this Japanese pharmaceutical factory.
the first generation of contraceptives produced from western
medicine laboratory was claimed that it was “scientific” to be
consumed by more than one hundred times of present doses.
However, today, it is corrected that only one percent of that
dose is “scientific”. So it turns out that “scientific” is just
a clown randomly dressed up by western medicine.
according to the "scientific" argument western medicine
considered that steroid could cure American singer Michael
Jackson’s leukoderma, while today western medicine declares in a
“scientific” way that consuming steroid severely weakened his
judgment and led to his behavior out of control. Michael Jackson
was thus tortured to hell by the “scientific” treatment of
according to the "scientific" argument western medicine
considered that mitoxantrone can be used for neurological
disorders and multiple sclerosis, but today FDA has
cardiac function will be impaired by mitoxantrone.
according to the "scientific" argument western medicine
considered that oxcarbazepine can be used as monotherapy or
adjuvant therapy for adults or children aged between 4 and 16
years old with
epilepsy, but today, "Pharmacovigilance Express"
has announced malignant skin reactions have some connection with
this medicine, such as
according to the "scientific" argument western medicine
considered that bisphosphonates was mainly used for treatment of
hypercalcemia, osteoporosis and ostealgia, however, today, FDA
announces necrosis of the palatine bone cases can be found among
cancer patients that have received intravenous bisphosphonate
treatment. Those who are against Chinese medicine but compliment
western medicine, can you assert the western medicine you are
using won’t be banned tomorrow?!
How does western medicine come into being? In fact, all western
medications are developed through experiments on laboratory
The method for developing western medicine has no difference
between the living environment for a million patients and only
one rat in laboratory! One million patients -- whether living in
the equator, temperate, frigid, or tropical zones, their bodies
will have health problem as they cannot adapt to the six
external factors of wind, heat, cold, dampness, dryness and
internal heat, but will that be the same with what may happen to
a rat in laboratory? If not, why does western medicine let
people take the drug that is effective on rats in experiments?
Is western medicine for human or rat? Our Chinese medicine
considers it in a different way! We will offer a patient 100
different diagnoses in 100 kinds of environment! TCM always
considers pathogenic environmental factors!
The method for developing western medicine has revealed that
psychological emotion of a million patients is the same with
that of one rat in the laboratory! One million patients -- no
matter their diseases are caused by the seven emotions (joy,
anger, worry, thought, sorrowness, fear, panic) their emotional
changes won’t be the same with a laboratory rat. If not, why
does western medicine let people take the medicine that is
effective on rats? Is western medicine for human or rat?
The method for developing western medicine has shown that the
channel systems of a million patients are the same with that of
one rat in the laboratory! Human body possesses “twelve main
channels, eight extra channels, three yang channels of hand, and
three yin channels of hand”, does the rat in laboratory also
have these channels? Can human physiological structure and that
of the rat be the same? If not, why does western medicine let
people take the drug that have effect on rats in experiments? Is
western medicine for human or rat?
The method for producing western medicine has meant that the
therapeutic methods for a million patients are the same with
that for one rat in the laboratory! Western medicine only
notices the disease, but cannot see the cause of the disease. Is
it because environmental factors, psychological and emotional
problem, or diet disorder?
Consequently in western medicine, the treatment
method for a million patients will be the same with that for one
rat in the laboratory!
TCM believes that there are different climates,
different diseases, and different climates for each season in
different areas, so the diseases will also vary from area to
area. In different regions, eating habits are different, the
environment is different, the diseases are different, and even
the same disease occurring on different patients will have
different treatments. Therefore, diagnosis and treatment in
Chinese medicine adjust measures to individual difference, local
conditions, different time and opportunities. TCM will treat the
same patient differently in different time, environment, mood,
and at different occasions as well!
