Traditional Chinese Medicine


2022 JCI World PresidentArgenis Angulo (From Venezuela)

Is Traditional Chinese Medicine common in Venezuela?

In my case, I use acupuncture and cupping, I also follow some practice as Chi Kung, but it’s not too popular, but I know it, and I love it.

Do you know the following terms by TCM – Coordinating Yin and Yang?


This is how to balance both energies that are part of our lives.

It’s also in terms of food, for example, there is food that is more for Ying and food that is more for Yang, and I like it.

Do you agree that Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is scientifically based?

I have great experiences in cases, for example, backache that in western medicine with some treatments were not completely effective. And when I visited a Chinese doctor, it was completely effective. And I have both experiences. And I cannot say that all I used was Chinese medicine, but when I use it, my experience was completely effective.
