Abstract

While planning exploratory trials in micro-current stimulation, a number of philosophical issues were encountered. This paper briefly explores the philosophical context within which trials in complementary medicine in general may be placed. The paper embarks on a short discussion of philosophical underpinnings for complementary VS traditional Western medicine, outlines some of the difficulties of evaluating complementary medicine by standards designed for a different system and then proceeds to describe a very basic pilot study into micro-currents applied to the human body.
