Let’s just get this out of the way: I *heart* infographics. Pictures are worth a thousand words, yes – but when you manage to combine succinct descriptions with good visuals, I believe there is no better way to tell a story. (It should come as no surprise that I love comic books too. I think it is a vastly underrated medium.)
In any case, I found this infographic on Pinterest and it sums up almost ALL the information I try to cram into short conversations about Chinese medicine. The Examination and Theory sections are way too simplistic but that’s alright.
I particularly like the the “Duration of Treatment” section, where Eastern prognoses consisting of number of treatments go head-to-head with timelines like “YEARS” and “FOREVER” on medication.
