(Article and Picture/ LYU Pei-wan & Meng Hui-hui) On September 1, 2019,at the invitation of Wang Xian-en, President of the Association of Chinese Students studying in Japan, Lyu Pei-wan, deputy director of the Preventive Medicine Department of Second Affiliated Hospital of Henan University of CM, held a discussion with Professor Guanghong Nakagawa of Ibaraki University, and was invited to attend a public lecture on "Traditional Medical Treatment and Health and Longevity" sponsored by the Chinese Students' Association for Studying in Japan and co-sponsored by Hino International College in Tokyo.
According to the research results of Nakagawa Research Laboratory, chronic diseases and lifestyle are closely related. The concept of preventive treatment in TCM is of great significance to reduce the incidence of diseases. During the symposium, Lu Pei-wan and Guanghong Nakagawa discussed the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases and the guidance of healthy lifestyle in China and Japan.
Wang Xian-en, a Japanese medical expert, said in his lecture that Japan's advanced medical treatment is mainly manifested in the aspects of inspection and service, but there are still many refractory diseases, which remain at the level of symptomatic treatment. As a result, the more the disease is treated, the more difficult the treatment is, the more expensive the medical fees are. To solve these problems, it is necessary to integrate traditional Chinese medicine with Western medicine and the wisdom of TCM.
Lyu Pei-wan systematically explained 42 principles of Chinese citizens' health and health-cultivation, introduced the theory and practice of TCM health preservation, and taught them how to use simple methods to prevent disease before its occurrence and control the development of existing disease from emotions, diet, daily life, exercise, self-massage, meridian health care and so on. Her narration of meridian health exercises, closed-mouth breathing and TCM culture greatly aroused the participants' interest and their recognition of TCM culture.
Through this foreign exchange, Second Affiliated Hospital has further spread TCM culture and the concept of health preservation overseas, which will help more and more people to understand, accept and benefit from TCM.
