The theories and practice of each system of medicine is determined by how the practitioners define health and define and their expectations and beliefs about wellness. The theories influence every aspect of assessment, diagnosis and treatment. They dictate what information is sought and how it is interpreted. They determine whether the emphasis of the patient-practitioner relationship is on addressing the factors that cause disease or just treating the symptoms. Whether health and disease are viewed as logical or random, and whether a practitioner is trained to integrate all aspects of a patient or just address specific pathological conditions, impacts the meaning that is assigned to symptoms and diseases and the approach used.
