One of the main differences between Eastern and Western Medicines is the ability to see the bigger picture.
In the East, they take a very different view of the world than we do in the West. If we were both asked to look at the same picture of a man in front of a building, the Western mind set is usually to focus in on the man in explicit detail. However, the Eastern mind would instead focus on the background and entire picture including the man. Our Western culture and upbringing have geared us towards concentrating in on small details and fine points; we are trained to tune in on tiny details and be hyper critical, but sometimes when we do that we lose sight of the bigger picture.
