1st Announcement (Guangzhou, 2017)

Dear experts and fellows,

As an essential component of the world’s natural medicine, is a result of a successful combination of conventional natural medicine and modern medical technology. Recent years have witnessed a remarkable progress in modern hyperthermia technology which has been widely used for benign and malignant diseases in clinical settings. Basic and clinical researches on hyperthermia reported that hyperthermia can achieve satisfactory outcome when used alone or in combination with other treatments.

Natural medicine, an integrated part of human medicine history, contributes to disease prevention and control and health maintenance by combining various natural elements (including animal, botanical and minerals) and conventional therapeutic approaches. With the progress of modern medicine, expansion of conventional natural medicine and application of modern natural therapy technologies, non-toxic, integrative and individualized care has gradually been recognized as a new model of modern medicine. Established in 2011, the WFCMS-SCNT has successfully facilitated many international conferences, aiming to promote the combination and development of natural medicine and modern medicine and strengthen the international academic exchange of natural medicine. The 2nd council of WFCMS was successfully elected in November, 2016, and will stay committed to the development and progress of human natural medicine.
Participants will have access to 5 categoryⅡcredits of national continuing education. Experts, researchers and practitioners of natural therapies at home and abroad are cordially invited to the conference. Notices are as follows:
