The benefits of Western medicine are not all that different to those of other health care systems, says Professor James D’Amico of the Queensland University of Technology.
“The idea that Western medicine is the only thing that works for us is not true,” he said.
“It’s an alternative system. “
“There is a difference between Western medicine and traditional medicine and Western medicine can’t be compared with traditional medicine because the former has been around for a long time and the latter has only been around since the last hundred years.” “
Western medicine ‘a bit more expensive’ For Dr D’Ammico, the western model has been very successful. “

Western medicine ‘a bit more expensive’ For Dr D’Ammico, the western model has been very successful.
“Most people in western countries can get the most out of western medicine, because it is so cheap and it is very effective,” he told ABC Radio Queensland’s Sunrise program.
“If you have a heart attack, a kidney stone, if you have asthma, you’re not going to be able to do a lot of things in the Western system.
Western medicine has been a good alternative for a lot longer than the Western medicine that was prevalent in Western countries.”
Dr Dampier says his study showed the benefits of western healthcare to Western Australians were not as great as those in other health systems.
“We do not get better outcomes if we are not in the west,” he says.
“In Australia we get the results we do because we are in a Western country.”
‘We are not going back’ Dr DAMPIER says the results of his study have been replicated in other countries around the world.
“Our results have been found to be in some cases replicated, but in some countries they are very different,” he explained.
‘The problem with Western medicine’ Dr Goh said the results were also very different in other parts of the world such as China. “
So if we don’t go back to Western-style medicine, we are going to see a lot more complications.”
‘The problem with Western medicine’ Dr Goh said the results were also very different in other parts of the world such as China.
“I don’t know if you’ve heard, but they have a lot worse outcomes,” he recalled.
“They don’t have that much better outcomes than other countries, and I don’t see that changing.”
Dr Gah said Western medicine did not work in other ways, such as the use of vaccines, antibiotics or other medicines that had been developed in the West.
“When I hear people talk about Western medicine, they usually mean western medicine in the US, western medicine internationally, and Western culture,” he added.
“This is a culture that has been here for a very long time, and it works for a good reason. “
“People can use it. “
And they can do things that Westerners cannot.” “
People can use it.
And they can do things that Westerners cannot.”
Western Medicine can be a ‘failing model’ Professor Goh says he believed western medicine could be a “failing” model in Australia because of the lack of evidence it had worked.
“Some Western doctors say, ‘We don’t use western medicine because we don and we don, and we have better results, but we’re not making money off it’.
That is a failure model, because we need evidence that Western health care is working,” he argued.
Professor Gah believes a better alternative to western medicine is “a model that doesn’t involve drugs or surgery”.
He believes Western medicine could help in a range of ways, including improving the quality of life.
He said Western doctors often told him they wanted to be “on the front lines of the medical profession”.
He said it was important to encourage the people who did not want to do Western medicine to try other healthcare options.
“A lot of Western doctors want to be on the front line of the health care profession.
They want to see Western medicine as the only alternative,” he noted.
“Many of those Western doctors would like to see the profession become more diverse.
They would like Western medicine not to be the only way of health care.”
Dr Klimas said the study’s findings were important.
“Because of the way that Western medical practitioners were treating Western people, there are a lot people who could have benefited from Western medicine,” he concluded.
“What we’re trying to do is find out what Western medicine does best for Western people.”
