Evidence-based Clinical Chinese Medicine: Vol. 1 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease provides a 'whole evidence' analysis of the Chinese medicine management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Evidence from the classical Chinese medicine literature, contemporary clinical literature, and the outcomes of clinical trials and experimental studies are reviewed, analysed and synthesised. The data from all these sources are condensed to provide evidence-based statements which will inform clinical practice and guide future research.This book has been designed to be an easy reference at the point of care. During a patient consultation, Chinese medicine practitioners can refer to this book for guidance on which Chinese herbal medicine formulas, specific herbs, or acupuncture points, can best treat their patient, and be confident there is evidence which supports its use.Currently, Chinese medicine practitioners who develop a special interest in a particular health condition such as COPD have to consult a variety of sources to further their knowledge. Typically, they use the contemporary clinical literature to understand the theory, aetiology, pathogenesis and obtain expert opinions on the Chinese medicine management of COPD. They search the electronic literature to identify systematic reviews of clinical trials, if any exists, to obtain assessments of the current state of the clinical evidence for particular interventions. If they have the skills and resources, they may search the classical Chinese medicine literature for an historical perspective on treatments that have stood the test of time.This book provides all of this information for practitioners in one handy, easy to use reference. This allows practitioners to focus on their job of providing high quality healthcare, with the knowledge it is based on the best available evidence.
In this greatly expanded edition of his international bestseller, Andreas Moritz reveals the most common but rarely recognized cause of illness - gallstones congesting the bile ducts in the liver. Besides leading to gallbladder diseases and gallstone attacks in at least 20 million Americans each year, in many cases, liver bile duct congestion sets the stage for even more serious, seemingly unrelated, conditions, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Most adults living in the industrialized world, and especially those suffering a chronic illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome, heart disease, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cancer, or diabetes, have in fact hundreds if not thousands of gallstones (mainly clumps of hardened bile that escape detection for they are invisible to x-rays, ultrasound, and CT scans) blocking the bile ducts of their liver. This book provides a thorough understanding of the liver and its complex functions, what causes gallstones in the liver and gallbladder, and why these stones can be held responsible for the most common diseases so prevalent in the world today. It provides the reader with the knowledge needed to recognize these stones and gives the necessary, do-it-yourself instructions to painlessly remove them in the comfort of one's home. Packed with images, the book also gives practical guidelines on how to prevent new gallstones in both the liver and gallbladder. The liver and gallbladder flush (cleanse) has led to extraordinary improvements in health and wellness among millions of people who have already given themselves the precious gift of a strong, clean, revitalized liver. Besides providing the practical procedures to cleanse the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, and intestines, Moritz explains in great detail the origin of all types of common diseases and how to prevent or reverse them naturally. The book is packed with precious, time-tested approaches designed to return the body to a permanent state of balance and vitality; it includes a complete program of healthcare, which is primarily based on the ancient medical system of Ayurveda and the vast amount of experience Andreas Moritz has gained in the field of health restoration during the past 30 years. Moritz is the author of 15 groundbreaking books on natural health and a leading, internationally recognized, authority in the field of integrative medicine.

Brought to the West in 1985, Maharishi Vedic medicine is based on the guiding principle of India's ancient Vedic tradition, a 5,000 year old system of mind-body medicine that maintains the human body is connected to a "network of intelligence" that governs the whole cosmos. When any part of the body gets disconnected from this intelligence, which can happen as a result of aging improper diet, and negative emotions and thoughts, then disorder and disease begin. Maharishi Vedic medicine treats the cause of disease by reestablishing these channels of communication, thereby enlivening the body's innate knowledge of how to function properly.

Conceptualised in opposition to 'orthodox' medicine, homoeopathy, a western medical project originating in eighteenth-century Germany, was reconstituted as vernacular medicine in British Bengal. India went on to become the home of the largest population of users of homoeopathic medicine in the world. Combining insights from the history of colonial medicine and the cultural histories of family in British India, Shinjini Das examines the processes through which western homoeopathy was translated and indigenised in the colony as a specific Hindu worldview, an economic vision and a disciplining regimen. In tracing the localisation of German homoeopathy in a British Indian province, this book analyses interactions between Calcutta-based homoeopathic family firms, disparate contributors to the Bengali print market, the British colonial state and emergent nationalist governments. The history of homoeopathy in Bengal reveals myriad negotiations undertaken by the colonised peoples to reshape scientific modernity in the subcontinent.

Trying to create a bridge for both sceptic and believer to explore the gift psychic processes grant us is a demanding task. We carry these questions and doubts within us at all times. Probing issues around instincts, coincidences, beliefs and ESP through some extraordinary cases of psychic interaction begins to show how truly well-trodden these paths are, even when we do not realise it. Recognising the role that dreams can have on ordinary life and how much we can benefit from their frequently undervalued influence in conscious decision making is important. Discovering how to rise to the challenge of events around us using our creative and instinctive responses allows us the joy of personal integrity. Acknowledging our deep desire to be whole involves all of these senses and this awareness begins to show in our behaviour, our lives and our sense of fulfilment. The Silent Impulse brings all of these ideas together in an attempt to increase the knowledge base of psychic processes using personal experiences and established research. It is intended to provide a better understanding of these phenomena for the lay person and expert alike.
Navigate change with clarity and ease using the tools of EFT in this guide from New York Times best-selling author and Tapping expert Jessica Ortner. "The Tapping Solution to Create Lasting Change gets right down to the heart of what it takes to change and have a better, healthier, and more love-filled life." -- Christiane Northrup, M.D. Why do we fear the unknown so intensely that we're willing to shy away from our deepest desires and settle for playing small? Why do we get enthused when we first start something, only to burn out the moment things feel challenging? And why, even when we get the outcomes we desire, do we often struggle to sustain them and instead slip back into old, self-sabotaging patterns? In The Tapping Solution to Create Lasting Change, available for the first time in paperback, New York Times best-selling author Jessica Ortner shares the lessons she's learned about what it feels like to flow through change and how to bring about real transformation in ways that are both authentic and empowering. Her gentle, relatable guidance shows you how to use Tapping, also known as EFT, as a tool for finding the clarity and the ease you crave to move forward; how to navigate the unknown with new energy, hope and an open heart; and how to release the doubts and fears that are clouding your judgment so you can rediscover your true path. It's a new way to look at the one unavoidable constant in life--change--not as an obstacle in our path but as a doorway to joy.
In August 2004, South Africa officially sought to legally recognize the practice of traditional healers. Largely in response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and limited both by the number of practitioners and by patients' access to treatment, biomedical practitioners looked toward the country's traditional healers as important agents in the development of medical education and treatment. This collaboration has not been easy. The two medical cultures embrace different ideas about the body and the origin of illness, but they do share a history of commercial and ideological competition and different relations to state power. Healing Traditions: African Medicine, Cultural Exchange, and Competition in South Africa, 1820-1948 provides a long-overdue historical perspective to these interactions and an understanding that is vital for the development of medical strategies to effectively deal with South Africa's healthcare challenges. Between 1820 and 1948, traditional healers in Natal, South Africa, transformed themselves from politically powerful men and women who challenged colonial rule and law into successful entrepreneurs who competed for turf and patients with white biomedical doctors and pharmacists. Carefully crafted, well written, and powerfully argued, Flint's analysis of the ways that indigenous medical knowledge and therapeutic practices were forged, contested, and transformed over two centuries is highly illuminating, as is her demonstration that many "traditional" practices changed over time. Her discussion of African and Indian medical encounters opens up a whole new way of thinking about the social basis of health and healing in South Africa.
