The frameworks that make up TCM make use of the philosophies, anatomical knowledge and hypotheses of the time to record patterns of pathology and recovery that were observed over thousands of years.

Some of the most important theories are yin/yang , 5 element , Organ Theory & Meridian theory.

Elements of these theories are used to describe causes of diseases, manifestations of symptoms, characteristics of herbs& foods and actions of acupuncture points.
