The substance of treating prior to disease in Traditional Chinese Medicine expects to dissipate symptoms before the disease occurs and maintain health until centenarian. This concept is a collective reflection of the intrinsic awareness of suffering by Chinese people. Moreover, its cultural connotations involve emphasis on preparation for adversity in times of safety and taking anticipative measures.
