The platform called Yiling Health Center, was started by the Shijiazhuang Yiling Pharmaceutical Co, which is owned by Wu Yiling, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Website visitors can receive online health consultations, and health preservation and disease prevention lectures, as well as be able to purchase over-the-counter TCM medicines and food online.

"Health demands among the Chinese are growing fast in the country, and more people have recognized that health needs to be managed," Wu said.

Wu Gang, vice-minister of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said: "With the help of the Internet and new technology, TCM will benefit not only the Chinese but people in other parts of the world."
