Coronavirus is new in the world, yet in TCM's world, it is not new! It is described in detail on the causes of such imbalance in nature that leads to imbalance in human body, and effective treatments in different stages as the disease progresses.

Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz points out in his book "Creating a Learning Society" that successful and sustained growth requires creating a learning society, especially in the 21st century, as we move to a knowledge economy; an open, democratic society is more conducive to the creation of a learning society; successful and sustained democratic growth must be inclusive!
It is said that one way to ignite innovation is to think about creating your opportunity canvas or solving your problem as if you had no money, no connections and only 24 hours to meet a challenge! You may also imagine trying to create, communicate, solve a problem or paint a picture without one of your five senses—such as sight. How would not having this sensory input affect your view of the world, options you identify and new pathways for possibility?
TCM is very popular and understood by many in China. It remains a mystery to many outside of China. Shall we give TCM a chance? Shall we work together to create a learning society? Shall we open our minds to explore TCM wisdom?
