This book represents a new and hopeful paradigm for treatment of diseases that are spreading globally as countries adopt Western lifestyles and standards of living. It describes the phenomenal science and clinical efficacy of the work of Dr Xiu-Min Li across a broad array of immune and inflammatory diseases. These include food allergies, asthma, eczema, "new" diseases such as mast cell disorders, obesity, and mental health problems that are part of a worldwide "epidemic of progress". The most allergic people are caught in a cycle of medication, steroid dependency, emergency hospitalization, and curtailing their activities and diets to avoid triggers. Children are "losing their childhoods." They are fighting a battle against diet, climate change, and environmental degradation. Dr Li offers them hope by healing the entire immune system, not just address symptoms. In her practice Dr Li treats complex combinations of allergic diseases for all ages, from infancy through adulthood, bringing relief to people who have suffered terribly from oozing, bleeding skin, desperate breathing disorders, and life-threatening food allergies. She uses her vast knowledge of biochemistry to improve on the traditional decoctions to create refined versions suitable for modern tastes and lifestyles. In contrast with Western pharmaceuticals, which are the study of "one molecule's effects on one other molecule" Dr Li's work shows the effects of multiple molecules on multiple other molecules. Increasing numbers of scientists are beginning to see the possibilities for their own research, with the prospects for more collaborations with prestigious institutions around the world. http://allergyblogawardsuk.co.uk/5-managing-asthma-allergies-with-henry-erlich/ Contents: About the AuthorsAcknowledgmentsNotes on the TextForeword (Dr Renata J M Engler)Introduction (Dr Xiu-Min Li)Food Allergy UpdateAsthmaAtopic DermatitisInflammatory Bowel DiseaseMast Cell Activation SyndromeObesityFuture Research (Dr Xiu-Min Li)Appendix: Information about Dr Li's PracticeIndex Readership: Allergists, Immunologists, Pulmonigists; Dermatology, Food Allergy Parents, Asthma Parnts, parents of very eczemataous children, TCM childern practitioners and students, National Eczema Association; American Lung Association, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

Food Allergies: Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Science, and the Search for a Cure is the first book-length account of the work of Dr. Xiu-Min Li on her work to adapt ancient herbal medicines to cure “modern” diseases, and to prove their efficacy using the best that science has to offer. Born and educated in China, Dr. Li was simultaneously trained in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Western medicine. Author Henry Ehrlich calls her a Rosetta Stone because she can think simultaneously in both systems and recognize the potential of thousands of TCM remedies for treating diseases of the immune system that defy conventional remedies, not just food allergies but also eczema and asthma, and, potentially, autoimmune disorders. Her research has produced a bonanza of insight into the functioning of the immune system. The book begins with an introduction to Dr. Li’s fascinating personal story and the moment when she decided to devote herself to the problem of food allergies, as well as a comprehensive and absorbing explanation to the allergy epidemic. This is followed by detailed but readable accounts of the laboratory science that has shown convincingly in mice that food allergies can be treated, up through the current phase-2 trials in humans. The author calls it a kind of “love letter to science.” The book concludes with a visionary look at the future of this therapy, from the points of view of both science and clinical medical practice. Dr. Arnold Levinson calls Food Allergies “A masterful job of distilling a lot of complex material into verbiage that can be understood by the nonscientist, albeit a sharp nonscientist, and accomplished in an entertaining style.”

This brief discourse is an introduction to the historical development of medicine in China, whose influence on Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia was profound and even reached far west into the Islamic world. The authors wish to make the interested reader aware of China's rich contribution to the world growth of the medical sciences. Too often the view has been taken that the history of medicine began with the discoveries of the Greeks and those ancient nations from whom they learnt. The authors want to redress this view and acquaint readers with a glimpse of the concepts and history of Chinese medicine and hope that they will feel encouraged to delve deeper. ... this volume is a compact, tantalizing excursion through centuries of medical tradition, in a range of cultures ... it does make a long, complex and fascinating history accessible to medical professionals and students of Chinese history who may be tempted to delve further into this rich and interesting field. American Journal of Chinese Medicine If you want a concise, easy-to-read, easy-to-absorb summary of events and trends from the 29th century BC to the present, this compact book will comfortably and quickly answer many questions. American Journal of Acupuncture Concepts of Chinese Science and Traditional Healing Arts gives an especially useful account of the historical achievements of Chinese medicine.
