TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINES


During March 2003 I was introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicines through a company Tasly (SA) (Pty) Ltd. Tasly had launched its products and business opportunity in South Africa in 2002.

My initial interest was their business concept. Through the training and the knowledge I gained about their way of treating the sick and keeping the healthy, healthy, my focus changed and I developed a passion to learn more and to help our nation to live a healthier life. My studies with Tasly covered the following areas:

- Traditional Chinese Medicines and health products;
- Micro circulation Analysis System
- The Metabolic Syndrome
- HIV/ AIDS
- Men and Women's health

I qualified as a Tasly Lecturer on the 5th May 2004.

Background of my practice: 

During 2003 I completed my first course on the Micro circulation Testing System and the usages of Traditional Chinese Medicines, culminating in the Micro Circulation Technologist Certificate in 2006, progressing to General Practitioner - Ethnomedicine.

I worked mainly in the Transkei / Ciskei and greater East London area, South Africa

I tested clients on the Micro circulation System and educated them on the usages and benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicines. Many of my travels in the first two years were concentrated in the rural areas. Our diagnostic system has progressed to the Quantum Health Analysis System with exciting results.

I have treated over 30 000 people. My client base extends from Harding (KZN) down to Cape Town. I worked along the coastal route as well as inland in the Eastern Cape and as far as Bloemfontein.

I currently operate from 64b Frere Road, Vincent, East London, South Africa. I have established Tasly Wellness Centers in Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. My goal is to continue helping others for the next 20 years and establishing a strong Pan Health Tasly brand in South Africa.

 

MICROCIRCULATION

Basic Concept

Micro circulation is a newly-emerging science. We should study related knowledge about micro circulation from the historical angle and in a scientific attitude, neither being over critical of our predecessors nor blindly seeking biased definition. Karen Krogh Busch is the earliest one who put forth the concept of micro circulation. In 1929 he advanced the theory that the capillary vessels are the organs for material exchange between blood and tissue, laying a foundation for the development of the micro circulation science. In 1980, Prof. Tian Niu put forward that micro circulation is the dynamic state of humor, which directly takes part in the material exchange of tissue cells. The humor of vertebrate ( in closed circulation) consists of blood, tissue fluid and tissue cells.

Famous biologist Prof. Bei Shizange advanced, What is life activity? From the biophysical viewpoint, it is nothing but the manifestation of the comprehensive movement of three things in nature, i.e. material, energy and information, which are changing all the time in life system. The organized and sequential movement of the three things is the basis of life.

The single-cell organism can directly transmit material, information and energy to the external world through cell membrane. The animal with podites transmits material, information and energy through haemolymph in the gap between tissues, which slowly flows between cells and tissues from the two open ends of the vein. Therefore, it is called an open-type circulation. For vertebrates (including human beings) they have a closed circulation, and blood can circulate at a relatively higher speed in the cario-cerebral system. The capillary lymph ducts have existed, and the lymphatic fluid flows into the lymph ducts through the initial lymph ducts. This begins the lymphatic flow. The liquid that flows in the gaps between tissues is no longer the haemolymph but the tissue fluid without haemocytes. The basic function of the closed circulation system is to guarantee the material, information and energy transmission of tissues and cells. All the parts, such as heart, artery, capillary vessels and lymph ducts, are an integral whole, each having its own distinct fine division of work. Only the blood. lymphatic fluid and tissue fluid in the blood capillary (arteriole, capillary vessels and venule) and the initial lymph ducts directly can participate in the material, information and energy transmission of tissues and cells. Mr. Tian latest definition: The flow of blood, lymphatic fluid and tissue fluid that directly participate in the transmission of material, information and energy of tissues and cells is called the micro circulation (1923).

My Area of Specialization
