    Chinese medical practices and medicines are all around us. In the mid-19th century, these “mysterious and magical” practices and concoctions arrived alongside the earliest Chinese immigrants who built the railroads and searched for gold. In the 1970s, this “alternative” medicine was best known as acupuncture. Today, aspects of Chinese medicine are becoming more integrated into healthcare practices in America. With its perceived evolution, is Chinese medicine now better understood? What underlies its mechanisms and how best are these investigated? How can it continue to benefit healthcare in America? What is its history in America?
