These gaps arise from the differences of cultural background: Chinese medicine is more like a watercolor painting that focuses on the general aspects of the patient while Western medicine, an oil painting, zooms in on the details of the patient Although they are both compared to as types of art, they all exhibit their unique differences."

I hope that I can clear up some of the misconceptions and stereotypes of our lifestyle differences in Eastern and Western societies.
