Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis Study GuideTraditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis Study Guide

Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis Study GuideDiagnosis in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the process of examining the body to diagnose disease and differentiate patterns under the guidance of the fundamental theories of TCM. It is a bridge that connects the basics of TCM with all branches of clinical medicine and includes inspecting the symptoms or manifestations, analyzing the changes, understanding the pathomechanisms, and predicting the transformation of diseases.

TCM diagnosis consists of two major areas of study, 'examination and testing' (zhn) and 'decision and judgment' (dun). Examination and testing techniques are used to collect information from the patient. Decision and judgment uses this information, which is sorted, analyzed, synthesized, and reasoned on the basis of TCM theory.
