Traditional Chinese medicine is considered the most famous in the world and many of its techniques, for example, “banks” is so ingrained in Russia that are considered to be tested “grandma’s remedy” for treating colds and flu, and many do not even remember about their Chinese roots.
However, the Chinese are not confined to their own medicine, and in 2013 began to study the traditional treatment of diseases since ancient times, used by neighbors. Xinjiang medical University in Urumqi in Western China this year began to teach the first students of the new speciality “Kazakh traditional medicine”.
Students the first issue will be not so much pupils, how many researchers. As the school they are familiar with originals of medieval manuscripts written in the ancient dialect, Kipchak, and Chagatai. For this reason, in the first training group University scored only ethnic Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, Tatars, and Uighurs – a single representative of the “ethnic majority” is still not among them. However, due to the fact that the Chinese traditional Kazakh medicine is not interesting, but because of the language barrier: the words from old manuscripts it is difficult to find analogu Chinese language.
Methods of healing were known in Kazakhstan in ancient times, however, the founder of the Kazakh medicine is considered Ali Ibn Sina or Avicenna – medieval Persian scientist, court physician to Samanid amirs and sultans dalamasca. Healers in pastoral Turkic tribes had a vast knowledge in the field of anatomy, knew hundreds of medicinal herbs. As noted by Russian travelers in the nineteenth century, the inhabitants of Turkestan could successfully carry out operations lithotomy (campsite) and hernia repair.

Glory enjoyed Kazakh chiropractors “synegry” who knew how to accurately treat even the most complex fractures and reduce dislocations. In Kazakh language there are more than two hundred names for the various diseases.
As told to “Radio Azattyk” teacher of Xinjiang medical University Gulkula Tulip in China have been documented cases when Kazakh doctors helped the sick, who could not save conventional doctors. To learn the Kazakh traditional medicine in China began in 1985.
In Xinjiang medical University Kazakh national medical practice will be taught along with methods of traditional Chinese and Uighur medicine. Possible, to the existing Department of Chinese traditional medicine and the Institute of Uighur traditional medicine in Xinjiang medical University added the faculty where you will study exclusively the art of the ancient healing art of Kazakh healers.
In 2012, the news Agency “Xinhua” reported that the Kazakh medicine has provided full freedom of development in Aksai Kazakh Autonomous County in Gansu province in Northwest China.
It is noted that in Kazakhstan people’s traditional medicine was never studied and is not included in University programs even at the level of historical introduction.
Traditional Chinese medicine, known throughout its multi-millennial history of China, very popular in East Asia. After coming to power in China the Communists led by Mao Zedong the Chinese sorcery was not only prohibited as superstition, but also received state patronage.
Meanwhile the scientific community in China criticizes the practices of most of the Chinese healers, considering them at best useless placebo. Also followers of traditional Chinese medicine blame you for the fact that the ingredients for some of their potions and aphrodisiacs they use bones, meat or body parts of rare animals, including elephants, Asian tigers and leopards.
