Zhong Li has dedicated his life long work in the research and clinical experience of integrative approach in management and supportive cancer care. He was the first person to advocate that cancer is merely a “condition” or “state of health” which is a breakthrough to the traditional approach of TCM view to cancer. He emphasizes that there should be a corresponding strategy to address such imbalanced “condition” or “state of health”, thereby creating new strategy in dealing with management of cancer and supportive care to reduce side effects so to improve cancer patient’s quality of life.
Theory of “Cancer State”
Zhong Li - the Founder of Sydney Ming Yi Tang TCM centre, believes that cancer is not just about abnormal cells, the cancer is a ‘condition’ or ‘state of health’, such ‘condition’ is referring to a state or body’s internal terrain whereby the human body’s qi and blood; yin and yang as well as amongst the body’s internal organ function with the external environment is in a state of imbalance or disharmony.
By drawing the analogy of “cancer cells to the seed” and the “Cancer Condition to the soil”, the proper approach is to modify such cancer condition in addition to suppress cancer cell growth in order to effectively control the disease progression. Through the efforts of our team, using the novel formulas developed in our Clinic, we have achieved remarkable clinical outcomes: A harmonious status between the person and nature, internal and external environment and body’s organs function are restored.
To improve a person’s ‘state of health’, our clinic applied Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, moxibustion, and pain-relief patch therapies to exert a synergistic effect. The combined treatment aims to eliminate toxins and strengthen body’s “Zheng qi”, to maximize the body’s ability to fight tumors, it can be used to accelerate the recovery, improve immunity and assist the body to regain balance and achieve homeostasis. Some formulas are able to help the patients to overcome the side effect that often experienced by patient during chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Researches showed that Chinese Medicine could be a new posibility for Cancer
