History of Ganoderma in Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, includes a range of traditional medicine practices that originated in China. Although TCM is well accepted in the mainstream of medical care throughout East Asia, it is considered an alternative medical system throughout most the Western world. TCM is a complete medical system that has been practiced for more than four thousand years. At the heart of TCM is the tenet that the root cause of illnesses must be treated, not their symptoms.
