Despite similarities, Western medicine and Eastern medicine are very different because they are built on different fundamental principles. Both have their merits as well as their limitations. The general idea that now arises is that both types of medicine are complementary and that we could benefit by connecting Western and Eastern medicine to get the best of both systems. To create a bridge, we should focus on similarities that inspire one to further unravel the molecular mechanism of the mode of action and toxicity of Eastern medicine. The energy perspective, for example, provides a basis to integrate Eastern and Western medicine.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
