How do we view TCM?
We view the world from different perspectives and ways of thinking, as well as the cognition of diseases. Chinese and western medicine recognize and treat diseases from different perspectives and ways of thinking.

3. How to prevent and cure a novel coronavirus from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine:
For this problem, a lot of experts have expressed their own views, but also put forward the prevention plan, see eye to eye, have the merits. Generally speaking, the prevention methods of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine are the same in many places. Such as ventilation, not in crowded areas, isolation of patients, drinking warm water, wearing masks, do not shake hands. From the experience of drug control there is a lot of ancient control experience. For example, in the jin dynasty, ge hong’s urgent prescription for elbow reserve, in the tang dynasty, sun simiao’s prescription for a thousand pieces of gold, and in the tang dynasty, wang tao’s secret instructions for outer Taiwan all had some measures, such as making medicine and preventing it by burning smoke.
The key to prevention and treatment is the strength of human immunity. The yellow emperor’s Canon of internal medicine says very clearly: “the vital energy is stored inside, the evil cannot be done”. People’s immunity is strong, strong resistance to disease, generally will not get sick. “By the collection of evil, qi qi will be empty.” People with a weak constitution are apt to get sick. From the point of view of enhancing immunity, keeping health must first be safe, from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, can be simply divided into “internal” and “external” two major causes, the internal cause can be simply said to be the body’s internal organs, qi, blood, body fluid and other work ability decreased, traditional Chinese medicine to find a way to restore their ability to work. The body’s weiqi (immunity) is related to the five zang organs of the body, which can enhance the resistance of the body surface to the natural pathogenic factors and enhance the immunity.
Iv. Strengthening immunity prevention novel coronavirus
During the outbreak, people should pay attention to cold protection, indoor ventilation and personal hygiene, strengthen physical exercise, maintain a light diet, avoid activities in crowded places. If you cough or sneeze, wear a mask or cover your nose and mouth with tissues or clothing to reduce the spread of germs. Pay close attention to the symptoms such as fever and cough. Among them is worth mentioning is to maintain a light diet, why to maintain a light diet, in Chinese medicine collectively known as “spicy food”. These food have very big “diverge” action, overmuch edible, easy “consume gas”, serious person can bring about qi deficiency, and the most obvious manifestation of qi deficiency is immune system is reduced. And eat too much excitant food, can stimulate the gastrointestinal tract to cause polyp, although this kind of polyp is a benign tumor, but also has the risk of cancer, treatment time and the need for a large cost, also need to actively prevent. If unfortunate detection, need rest fu xin, eliminate polyp to prevent cancerous change, when taking, still need to pay attention to regular reexamination, contrast polyp shrink circumstance. For large size, severe symptoms, rapid growth of polyps in a short period of time, it is necessary to promptly remove treatment.
