Gabrielle shares why she believes Chinese medicine is superior to Western medicine.
Well, I think it's their training, and I think somebody who is a doctor of Oriental medicine, the ones that I have had the pleasure of experiencing, are, several of them come from very old lineages and they have been around this their whole life.
And I think that with all people we exchange energy, and I think that the doctors, because they do so much Tai Chi and because they do so much meditation, their energy is very, very strong, very calm, very focused, and very deliberate on healing. So I think that even when we are not with the doctors, they are still sending us energy through meditation for healing because we are their patients.
And I noticed that my mom would always respond right away when the doctor of Oriental medicine would come for a house call, and I think there was something unique and special about the energy. Maybe he gave her or lent her some extra energy because they were able to do that because of the extensive Chi Gong training that they get as part of training to be a doctor of Oriental medicine.
