You hear a lot these days about blending Western medicine with age old Chinese medicine. I met a person practicing Acupuncture recently. What he said about his practice made sense. Shortly after that, I saw an episode on The Doctors where they demonstrated it. That started me thinking… a dangerous undertaking to be sure.
With Western medicine so enamored with the pharmaceutical approach, ie, “There’s a pill for that!”, how would the blending of the two disciplines look? I then realized Western medicine is really not about pills… it’s about DRUGS! When I had that break-through in thinking, I knew how they could blend the two in a logical way. So, I drew it.
This is where the Doctor says, “You might experience a little momentary discomfort… like a pin prick.” Easy for them to say! I can hardly wait for the disclosure sheet about the possible side effects…
