One of the special characteristics of Traditional Chinese Medicine is its holistic view of the body. TCM takes account of the relations between the different organs, ailments, emotions, and functions. The treatments proposed will often take into account the effects of the organs on each other and will result in a more systemic approach, bypassing the syndromes and going directly to the core.
Network analysis and visualization can be used to represent the complex web of relationships found in Chinese Medicine in an easy-to-read interactive manner. Using the map we created, you can click on a few organs to find what common ailments or functions they share and how they affect each other. This graph can be interesting for anyone who studies TCM and for anyone interested in using graph visualizations to represent complex problems.
