Praise for Interpreting Chronic Illness, TCM, Homeopathy, Biomedicine
³A brilliant and groundbreaking work by an integrative practitioner who "speaks the language" of three very different healing paradigms -- biomedicine (modern Western medicine), acupuncture and homeopathy. By illumining each in the light of the others, he brings the CAM modalities from a subservient role as "alternative medicine" to full participation as "complementary." Kantor simultaneously updates the Five Elements model of acupuncture; provides fresh insights into the major homeopathic remedies based on the Five Elements model; and shows how both can address the diagnostic categories of biomedicine. This will be an essential book for practitioners and students of all three modalities who want to expand their healing paradigm.² Begabati Lenninhan (Director of the Teleosis School of Homeopathy) ³A seminal work of probing, integrative intelligence, Jerry Kantor¹s Interpreting Chronic Illness systematically lays out how Nature, personal temperament and life experience constitute the crucible for chronic illness and, in turn, the laboratory for self-understanding. It will consolidate and advance the thinking of practitioners of acupuncture and homeopathy, and will challenge Western-trained health care professionals to think of illness and disease as more than just invading pathogens.² --Eugene L. Pogany, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, author of In My Brother¹s Image Jerry Kantor has produced a book that is wise, perceptive, practical and immediately applicable, but that will also yield further riches on deep study. It draws on the three apparently incompatible fields of acupuncture, homeopathy and modern biomedicine, and weaves from them whole cloth: a patterned approach to understanding chronic illness, and guidelines for treatment. Worthy of serious consideration. Steven Clavey, author of Fluid Physiology and Pathology in Chinese Medicine This book has systemically discussed a number of chronic diseases, with Traditional Chinese Medicine theory approaches. For each chronic disease, author listed practical therapy, the combination of traditional Chinese Medicine theory based Acupuncture and Homeopathy remedy. This is an excellent book for those, who like to use both Traditional Chinese Medicine including Acupuncture and Homeopathy to treat patients. Zhaoming Chen, MD, PhD, MS, CFP, FAAIM Chair and Chief Spokesman, American Association of Integrative Medicine Diplomate of Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Licensed Acupuncturist Certified Qigong Instructor TaiChi Master ³Jerry has successfully integrated the disciplines of homeopathy, acupuncture, and biomedicine into pragmatic healing approaches that busy practitioners can readily and easily apply to common clinical presentations. Multimodal management and integrative medicine techniques, while certainly the best approach to medical conditions, can be deceptively complex. Jerry¹s explanations and guidelines are the perfect balance of background information and recommendations allowing the clinician to effectively supplement their treatment armamentarium.² Mark Scheutzow MD, PhD, DHom, NMD, FAAIM, DABHM, DAAPM This book is a major triangulation of multi-medical perspectives that add to our understanding of what healing is about. Jerry Kantor has done a great job! Ted Kaptchuk author, The Web That Has No Weaver: Understanding Chinese Medicine "I know of no other body of work, in the science of homeopathic medicine, which demystifies the core essence of homeopathic materia medica as does Kantor's brilliant work. A truly integrative, evidence-based perspective that should be mandatory reading for all practitioners of the art, science and philosophy of homeopathy." Georgianna Donadio, PhD Florence Nightingale Scholar and Director of the National Institute of Whole Health Much of American medicine is based on the belief that disease is an entity that flies through the air and lands on the unlucky, whereupon we ³do battle² with it. Jerry Kantor persuades us otherwise with his thoroughly original coalescence of the best of Eastern and Western views of diagnosis and treatment. I won't let another physician touch me untill he/she has read this book. William Martin Sloane, Ph.D., Vice President American Association of Integrative Medicine
