While all 6 lessons were very informative, I feel that western medicine "focusing on the diagnosis" is the biggest lesson that can be taken from this. I believe that in a lot of ways, some doctors are quick to diagnose something and/or provide medication to suppress individual symptoms when that can actually cause the wrong illness to be diagnosed or some important symptom to be overlooked. Sometimes I feel that people get caught up in trying to fix a problem quickly as opposed to correctly. From the article as a whole, however, I would be interested in ideas that combine western and eastern medicine to get the best of both.
