医生:你好,史密斯先生。今天感觉如何?

d:Hello, mr. smith. how are you felling today?

病人:好多了。谢谢!今天我可以坐直了。针灸的确很棒。

p:Much better, thank you! i can sit straight today. the acupuncture is really great.

医生:不错。中医有五千年的历史。它对疾病的发生,发展和治疗都有着完整的理论体系。针灸只不过是治疗像你的椎骨侧突疾病的一种最有效的方式。

d:Yes, chinese traditional medicine (tcm)has a history of more than 5,000 years. it has a complete theory about the occurrence, development and treatment of diseases.

Acupuncture is only one of the most effective ways to treat diseases such as your pleurapophysis.

病人:尽管如此,我的许多同事对中医还是有些不解。你能否多给我讲点?

p:All the same, many of my colleagues feel much puzzled about tcm. would you please tell me more about it?

医生:没问题。根据中医理论,疾病的发生是阴阳失调所致。而疾病的治疗就是阴阳的平衡。

d:Sure. according to tcm theory, the occurrence of diseases is the incoordination between yin and yang and the treatment of diseases is the reestablishement of the equilibrium between them.
