'There is often a large barrier between those in favor of Eastern medicine and those in favor of Western medicine.
Methods of healing are drastically different, with Western medicine being much more ‘unnatural’ than Eastern.
Eastern philosophy uses whole-food formulas to nourish the body’s natural healing abilities, while Western philosophy isolates and forces therapeutic actions to ‘treat’ disease.
Eastern examination works with the elements earth, fire, wood, metal, and water to interpret the relationship between the physiology and pathology of the human body and the natural environment. Western medicine uses vital signs like height, weight, and body temperate, and general appearance for health examination.
Due to the harsh, ineffective, and dependency-driven aspects of Western medicine, Eastern medical philosophies are regaining popularity.'
