In this article the authors pointed out that TCM constitution identification evaluate the overall condition of an individual in sub-health status. It can be used in processes of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases, thus the individual-focused and speculation-based TCM can organically align with the modern medicine.

Chronic diseases are global threats to human health. By applying the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory of body constitution to the treatment of chronic diseases, and comprehensively identifying and differentiating the syndrome, disease, and constitution, TCM can be fully used in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases. In this manner, population-based and evidence-based modern medicine can organically align with the individual-focused and speculation-based TCM, with subsequent benefits for the control of chronic diseases, reducing their burden on human health.

Key words: body constitution, traditional Chinese medicine, sub-health, chronic disease, syndrome
