Congress of Traditional Hellenic Medicine

Akadimia Of Ancient Greek And Traditional Chinese Medicine

Welcome to the website of the Panhellenic Congress of Traditional Hellenic Medicine

This website has been made to receive and host all the material of the Congress.

The Congress’ material is hosted under the column’s Articles.

This Congress aims to highlight forgotten knowledge of practical folk wisdom, practical folk medicine, which will contribute greatly to the management of current and future patients. Every precious folk knowledge on the survival of humanity can be proved particularly beneficial in these critical times. We need to take advantage of the vast treasure of wisdom that our folk medicine holds, the Traditional Hellenic Medicine. The words of Hippocrates can dissolve the darkness of fear and bring light back to our minds and hearts.


We actively participate in this conference with works, announcements, studies, and anything that can remind, record and present, even maybe for the first time, all the wealth of the ancient knowledge Traditional Hellenic Medicine withholds.

This Congress is addressed to doctors, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, alternative therapists, homeopaths, acupuncturists, reflexologists, aromatherapists, herbalists, herb collectors, folk healers, scholars of our folk medicine tradition, and others.
