Objective: Integrate Art & Science
Visually represent relationships between modern and ancient concepts of medicine to present a proper understanding of probiotics relative to pathogenic and toxic substances. Integrative Medicine should be simple, effective, worldwide, and never fear-inducing. Sustainability is not as complicated and scary as so many scientists think it is, and the Earth like any other living and dying thing has a life cycle reflective of a bell curve. The more pressure we put on ourselves to reduce or slow down the chemical reaction that is life on this planet, the faster it will go by. Some people can afford to give more than others, but that shouldn’t make anyone feel shameful. Feel grateful, give thanks, be.
