Throughout history, people have looked for the causes of illnesses. For instance, it has always been extremely difficult for researchers to identify the underlying causes of high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, myocardial infarction, MS, lupus, or cancer. The energy obtained from eating food is necessary for the body’s organs to function. According to conventional medicine, illness develops when the body’s organs’ normal functions are disrupted. However, the fundamentals of traditional medicine hold that any disruption in the way that the body’s cells work is what ultimately causes the disease. It should be remembered that cell energy, which is mostly obtained from food, is necessary for cells to operate properly. In this sense, traditional medicine places a specific emphasis on the topic of diet. All living things must release physical energy and change their cell makeup in order to survive. In general, there are two primary metabolic processes: catabolism and anabolism, which together account for half of the body’s metabolic activity. Complex molecules are broken down by cells during the catabolic process to produce energy from glucose molecules, free fatty acids, and amino acids.
However, because the quantity of energy required for food catabolism varies, so does the method of turning food into energy. In order to predict the amount of energy required to break down various compounds into glucose molecules, free fatty acids, and amino acids, we must thus understand the process of catabolism of various diets. Long-term consumption of foods that need a lot of energy to digest can lower the energy production of cells and organs and lower the body’s total energy level as well as the cells.
The efficacy of sodium-potassium energy-dependent pumps at the cell surface is impacted by decreased cellular energy, which in turn has an impact on the operation of important organs including the heart, brain, and liver. Since cells make up every organ in the human body, their proper functioning ensures the body’s overall health. Reduced energy at the cellular, organic, and molecular levels can result in reduced cellular and molecular activities and the emergence of various illnesses depending on a person’s genetic makeup since the function of cells depends on their level of energy.
For instance, in conditions like diabetes, a decrease in cellular energy results in a dysfunction of the cell membrane that impairs the function of insulin receptors in the cell wall and raises blood sugar; or as a result of lysosome dysfunction, the immune system of the diabetic person is compromised, making the diabetic person more susceptible to bacterial infectious diseases.
The use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is on the rise all around the world. Few researches have examined the nature of communication among cancer patients who get TCM therapy in addition to mainstream medicine, despite its historical importance to Chinese society. The quality of care and clinical outcomes, such as high patient satisfaction and treatment compliance, will improve if TCM practitioners gain the necessary knowledge to comprehend the needs and communication challenges of their cancer patients, particularly those who are also receiving conventional medicine.
In this study, the phrase “conventional medicine” refers to the official medical system in the majority of nations, particularly in the Western world. It is founded on scientific information that is derived from a Western viewpoint. Studies have referred to it as bio-medically based medicine. Other titles, such as allopathic, Western, conventional, or contemporary medicine, have also been used in the literature. Western conventional medicine (WCM) and conventional medicine are both used interchangeably in this review.
The National Health Commission of China (NHCC) has suggested a number of Chinese Medicines (CMs) for the treatment of coronavirus illness (COVID-19). Additionally, these CMs have been suggested for a variety of clinical characteristics. Based on a multi-center, prospective and randomised controlled study, as well as a retrospective review of the COVID-19 patients who received CM treatment, it has recently been found that NHCC-recommended CMs had significant clinical effectiveness and safety. However, questions have been raised regarding the paucity of knowledge regarding the therapeutic processes and the neglect of the clinical side effects of these CMs. Investigations have been carried out to probe the mechanisms of the CMs for the treatment of COVID-19, in particular the targets and controlled networks, as part of the attempts to allay these worries.
