Title Mechanic or gardener? Contrasting philosophical models underlying health care
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2013 Mar;43(1):19-24
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

This paper traces the historical development of some philosophical models in science as this relates to health and disease. In particular, it examines, compares and contrasts the ‘Western’ allopathic model (the doctor as a mechanic who fixes the patient) with the ‘Eastern’ model of health (how this person is relating to the universe and the results of that relationship). Some basic principles of chiropractic are examined in the light of these models.
