This is kind of a silly question. Chiense medicine is such a huge category that it's impossible to say if it's effective or not. I've lived in China for a few years, and sometimes the doctor gives me Chinese medicines. Usually I don't see the big result but I figure it can't hurt at least. Not like Western medicines that pollute your body and sometimes do more harms than good. Western research has even backed up many Chinese medicines, for example the medicine used in most parts of the world now to treat malaria was first used by traditional Chinese doctors.

TCM works best if you believe in it. There are a number of techniques, drinks, and herbal rubs that seem to be effective for a great number of people. The best advice I can offer is to suggest you try it. Most TCM procedures are natural and non or minimally invasive, which means ther's not a lot of risk involved. But, if you're going in expecting it not to work, you might as well just take the Western medicine.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
