In the author’s daily practice, one of the main complaints she faces is headache. As a doctor who has six specialties, the first being specialized in infectious diseases, she began studying Chinese medicine (two years after finishing her medical residency in infectious disease in 1995), influenced by her mother who said that many diseases in the future will only be cured through Chinese medicine [1]. Having the privilege of the opportunity to study both medicines (Western and Eastern) the author understands today what failures current Western medicine has made, when it was instituted the scientific model implemented by Flexner in 1910, changing the whole way of seeing the patient and often moving away from the conventional model of explaining at the bedside, the changes presented by the patient. In the past, medical model was implemented by William Henry Welsh (1850-1934) in 1884, in Unites States, where standardized clinical observations with introduction of laboratory experimentation and research [2]. This super specialized model of medicine brought a fragmentation of the entire human being, with several deleterious consequences for our patients today as the author is showing in the article Are Pulmonary Manifestations in COVID-19 Really Caused by the Virus? [3].
