The pace of current TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) development is mostly set by East Asian Governmental Organizations and other standardization programs. There is integration underway to place TCM as massage, acupuncture and herbal medicine as a subservient addition to biomedicine. Although that is not nescessarily bad, it does cause a great loss in healthcare solutions that are specifically part of past East Asian Medicine history and a modern take on self-reliance as essential for cost affectivity. At the proposal of my Mentor at IOU Foundation, I have set out with the help of people from a variety of cultures to outline the need and format of a Naturopath Healthcare System, which I called Daoland, representing the inner ecosystem as a country following CM metaphors. The core of this Daoland idea was suggested to me by an Australian aborigine and a Mexican Otomi, both involved in culturalization, ritualization and healing in search for recognition of the medicine systems of their culture. Based on my own expert knowledge and skills in Chinese medicine and Wudang Daoist medicine and Taiji gongfu, I developed over ten year time a map of health requirements and how Chinese medicine and sports can contribute to solving health related issues against extremely low costs. Modern developments in Chinese CM were very helpful. In this lecture, I will show outcomes of affectivity research and how the 20+ parts function in the whole of the program and what they can mean for TCM naturopath education, other forms of naturopathy and the role of naturopathy in society.
