Throwaway because my SO knows my reddit account.
This is more of a relationship like question, however I want it directed toward people in the medical profession. I am, but not SO is not. My SO and I share a cultural difference (she, being Chinese) and she grew up learning about Eastern medicine, and although partially accepts western medicine, is very believing of Eastern medicine.
While I'm not really "against" Eastern medicine, I have a personality where I need "proof" of something working before I can able to accept it. Examples being, research papers, or data with results. That sorta thing.
Over the course of our relationship, many times we have discussed the Eastern way of "always drink hot water, and never cold water." This is very typical Eastern way of thinking. We're both at kinda a brick wall, and have gotten to the point of both avoiding the topic.
Has anyone been through similar experiences or offer advice or anything like that?
