On November, 25th The Vilnius University Confucius Institute organized a public online lecture "The Significance of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Modern World". We are extremely grateful to Vitalijus Naumavičius, a Chinese medicine doctor, physiotherapist and doctor of biomedical sciences, for his valuable knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine and advice on how we should strengthen our health in winter. The lecture discussed and compared two treatment systems - Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, where the researcher shared useful experience gained in China and his research knowledge. It was fun for us Lithuanians to see that more than half of the same medicinal plants grow in our country as in China. So far, unfortunately, we use a small part of the above-mentioned medicinal plants for treatment and prevention.
