Medical professionals are increasingly using the term “Western Medicine” in reference to a range of treatments, including acupuncture and massage, which are considered “medicine” by many people.
However, what exactly does this term mean?
The term “western medicine” is a combination of the words “Western” and “Medicine” (meaning medical treatment).
In some ways, Western medicine is a subset of the “medics” who also practice acupuncture, massage and chiropractic.
It is not the same as the “Western doctors” or “Western medicine” practitioners who treat a range to patients who have a range or range of medical conditions.
In terms of its use in Western medicine, the term Western medicine refers to a branch of medicine that is focused on the management of conditions that affect people from a wide range of backgrounds.
The term Western Medicine was popularised by Sir William Osler, a British doctor who worked in the United States and the Netherlands in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Osler described Western Medicine as “the most effective and best treatment of the most common diseases and ailments, including disease, and which is now the only one which has achieved universal acceptance in all countries and regions”.
What is “Western Therapy”?
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, “Western therapy” is “the use of the whole body in the treatment of a particular disease, disorder, or condition”.
According to a Wikipedia article, “The term is derived from the Greek word ‘Westernos’ meaning ‘whole’ and ‘therapy’, which refers to the treatment or cure of diseases.”
The term Western therapy can refer to a wide variety of treatments.
For example, there are “Western medical practitioners” who treat patients with spinal cord injuries, and Western medical specialists who treat chronic pain.
There are also Western massage therapists who treat people with fibromyalgia, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
According to Wikipedia, the use of Western Therapy is not limited to medicine.
According to the International Medical Education Association (IMEA), Western therapy is a broad term that includes the treatment, diagnosis and treatment of all medical conditions, disorders and diseases, including: pain, conditions of the body or mind, disorders of mental health, physical disorders, and diseases of the nervous system.
According a Wikipedia search of “Western Medication” on Wikipedia, there is no scientific evidence that “Western therapies work better than other treatments”.
According to a recent article in the American Journal of Pain, “A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that patients who were treated with Western Medication experienced less pain and more satisfaction with their pain treatment than those who were not treated with the drug.
The patients were also less likely to have adverse events and more likely to return to their jobs and live independently.”
In a separate study, published in The Lancet medical journal, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco and at the Hospital for Special Surgery at the John Howard Medical School in Melbourne found that patients in Western therapy groups were better able to tolerate a range more than patients in non-Western therapy groups.
“Western therapy may not be ideal for all conditions, but we know it is effective in a variety of conditions,” Dr. David D. Kupfer, one of the authors of the study, said in a statement.
“If we want to get better outcomes, we need to take more care to understand what is happening in people’s lives, and what treatment works for them, not just what they think it does.”
Dr. Robert J. Johnson, a professor of internal medicine at the Mayo Clinic, is the co-author of a book about Western medicine called “Medications and Pain”.
In it, he describes how the use and application of Western Medicine have influenced how doctors treat patients, and the health care system.
“It’s really a double-edged sword,” Johnson told CNN.
“You have a lot of things that are really good for a lot, and then you have things that we’re trying to change that we can’t.
The good side of Western medicine in general is that it’s the only type of medicine, and I think that that is what we have to be more aware of.
It’s kind of like a snake that we know that bites people, and that’s why I think it’s so important that we try to keep our heads down, to keep learning from what’s out there.”
What about acupuncture?
There is a growing body of evidence that acupuncture is effective at treating a range, or range that includes conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgic pain, post-trauma stress disorder, and depression.
According the American Academy of Family Physicians, “acupuncture is effective for pain, for depression, and for many other conditions, including chronic pain.”
Acupuncture is also used in the prevention of many other ailments.
