From the research reports published by international medical conferences in recent years, we have learned that the cause of aging and falling ill for the humankind is not only due to germs and virus invasion, mostly, it is due to the cells lack blood, oxygen, nutrition, and the metabolites cannot be excreted from the body. This is called "Molecular Correcting Medical Science." The kernel of the theory is to give full play to the body's disease-resistant capability, to delay aging, and to prevent illnesses.

In the last few hundred years, the direction of medical research has been focusing on the use of antibiotics and other chemicals as the means of medical treatment. Since the 17th century, when medicinal chemicals first came out, there have been more than 5,000 kinds of antibiotics, and nowadays the world's annual output is as high as 50,000 tons and more.

In the early 1940s, penicillin was regarded as the "Divinity" of Western medicine, and was introduced to China. Many Chinese people simply adored it. At the time, only 10,000 units might entirely cure someone's disease. Time after time, the quantity required for the drug increased from 50,000 units, to 100,000 units, 400,000 units, 800,000 units…and now has reached up to 10,000,000 units. This vicious expansion naturally leads to frequent changes to different kinds of drugs: from penicillin to gentamicin, kanamycin, terramycin, tetracycline, pioneer no.4, pioneer no.6, and so on. New products came one after another.

Another similar method is to turn the intramuscular injection into intravenous injection. This vicious circle is dreadful to contemplate. At present time, not many Western medical practitioners can walk out of this 'queer circle,' thus three possible consequences are observed.

First, the chemicals will impair the internal environment of the human body. Taking the white blood cell as an example, when chemicals are not used, the normal value is 10,000/mm3, after using chemicals, it drops to 8,000/mm3, and after using a large amount of chemicals, it drops to 6,000/mm3, 4,000/mm3, or even lower. When the white blood cell drops to 0, how can the humankind still survive?

Second, chemicals will make pathogen microbe increase its resistance to the action of a drug. The correlation between drug and disease can be described by an old Chinese saying: "When the water level rises, the boat goes up."

Third, the diseases caused by the side effects of drugs endlessly emerge. The Drug Harmful Reaction Control Centre of the Chinese Public Health Bureau reports that in recent years, among the inpatients in mainland China, 192,000 of them die of harmful drug reactions each year. According to the statistical result from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 10 years ago the average life expectancy of intellectuals in China was 58, and now it has dropped to 53. Another statistical result from the Ministry of Public Security of China shows the average life expectancy of traffic police in cities is only 48 due to the invasion of pollution from tail gas of vehicles.

Today, science and technology have highly developed; people enjoy comfortable living environments brought about by modern technologies. Meantime, they are also experiencing environmental pollution, ecological imbalances, and the harms caused by poisons and side effects of chemically composed drugs. These have become the world common problems. We have realized more and more the importance and urgency to return to nature and seek natural treatments that have no poisons, side effects, or pollution.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has raised that in the 21st century, not only the diseases that should be regarded as the main research target of medical sciences, but how to improve the general health level of the humankind should be the major direction of research. People should maintain good health, seek their bodies' self disease-resistant capability, explore and bring vitality of the body's natural defense system, thereafter achieving a dynamic equilibrium and a stable health result. That is moving from drug therapy to non-drug therapy, which is also called the "equilibrium medical science."

The 19th century was the era of engineering industrial revolution, the 20th century was of electronic industrial revolution, and the 21st century is of biological and genetic science that brings along other scientific revolutions, and the Chinese people will make a due contribution this time because as early as 2,000 years ago, they had already developed traditional Chinese medical science, whose theoretical basis and essence are precisely the "equilibrium medical science" and the "self-health-care."
