There are many differences between Chinese and Western medicine. These gaps arise from the differences of cultural background: Chinese medicine is more like a watercolor painting that focuses on the general aspect 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.Many people are curious as to whether or not there are differences in the lifestyle between the East and the West. There is no exact definition of how a person should or should not have his lifestyle due to the objective and subjective viewpoints on the matter. But what is dear is the healthy or unhealthy ways of living-for instance, everyone can agree that smoking harms the body. Similarly, we can all say that exercising is a healthy way of life. I hope that I can clear up some of the misconceptions and stereotypes of our lifestyle differences in the Eastern and Western societies。
