preventing flu and in achieving health,beauty and longevity.Themechanism is complex,whether viewed from the standpoint ofTCM or Western medical theory,or in the light of modem researchfindings.Here,an initial exploration of just three aspects isoutlined.TCM Theory1)Harmonize yin and yang,balance the five elements.The therapyclears meridian and collateral channels by acupoint massage SO as to harmonize yin and yang,balance the five elements andpromote harmony between the zang organs(heart,liver,spleen,lung,kidney,pericardium)and the fu organs(small intestine,largeintestine,gall bladdeg urinary bladde~stomach),and between ying(nutrition)and wei(defence).The smooth flow of qi and blood nourishes the whole body and maintains the normal function of a11 organs and tissues,thereby enhancing the body’S immunity to flu.2)Dredge meridian and collateral channels and smoothenjoint movement.The therapy unblocks the collateral channels,strengthens muscles and bones,moves qi and activates blood,and smoothens joint movements SO as to build“flexibility of the body and harmony ofqi flow.”3)Strengthen the primary and the healthy,replenish and supplement the original qi.As an old saying goes,“The threetreasures of heaven are the sun,moon and stars,while the threetreasures of the human body are ring essence,qi and shen spirit.”Among the three treasures of the human body,essence is thefoundation,qi the driving force and spirit the controller,all ofthem fundamental to health and beauty and in preventing flu.The new therapy stresses replenishing the essence.

In the face of a serious global influenza pandemic,people cannot help but ask whether the virus is unconquerable,or whetherthe thinking,policies and measures relating to prevention andtreatment are perhaps wrong.Research findings indicate the latter.The conventional approaches to flu prevention are over-focused on the virus but fail to mobilize the boay'S innate adaptability andimmunity(known and latent)to fight infection.Currently,in Chinese medical circles and overseas,there is great room for improvement in combating flu.In addition to vaccinationand medication,many scientific approaches call for focus on stimulating known and latent ability for self-healing and improving self-immunity,in particular improving microcirculation of therespiratory system.The New Century Medical Model and the New TCM Anti.FluTherapy are both theoretically and practically innovative,from labexperiment through to clinical application.They supplement whatis lacking in conventional measures and are easy,effective,“green”,and inexpensive to popularize.Embodying the TCM concept of“preventative treatment,”the new therapy aims to activate thebody’S known and 1atent resistance,and conforms to the TCMprinciples of“strengthening what is healthy and dispelling thepathogenic”and“when there is sufficient healthy qi inside,pathogens have no way to invade the body.”
