This work makes Oriental Medicine, the medicine of the people, accessible to the reader. Over the past several thousand years, Oriental Medicine has developed into the most comprehensive medical system on the planet, initially passed on via oral tradition and then written word. This work is a humble translation of ancient Chinese medical theory into layman s contemporary English terminology. This work is not a complex text laden with medical terminology for use by medical and/or scientific academics who scour materials in search of what doesn t work; rather it is a work based upon: 1. the truths of Oriental Medicine as outlined in many texts used to train Acupuncture professionals, and 2. experience with 1000 s of patients and their reality. This book is intended as a reference for use by: patients curious about Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and/or Acupuncturists who would like to offer their patients an understandable explanation of their particular symptom(s) prior to beginning care.

Review:

Curry Chaudoir is a talented and compassionate acupuncturist. As such, he recognized a need for improved education and created this essential resource for acupuncture patients. In demystifying acupuncture, this book helps any patient to understand the nature of their health conditions. When a patient can understand the underlying imbalances that impact their health, they become an active participant in the healing process. You can see the A-Ha moment in their eyes as they read a passage and understand that their health depends on the dynamic balance that acupuncture achieves. A Must-Have for all acupuncturists, as essential as needles! --Julie Barsam-Cummings, D.Ac., Lic.Ac.

Oriental Medicine and You is a true gem in helping patients understand the Oriental Medical approach to resolving their specific conditions. I appreciate the ease in which Curry breaks down symptoms into terms patients can understand. I really like his explanation of Problematic Body Fluids where he explains dampness in a way that makes sense to anyone unfamiliar with Chinese Medicine. --Deleon Best, Diplomate in Acupuncture

People suffering from health problems initially often seem to be mystified by the condition they are in, how they got it, and possess a genuine desire for a specific diagnosis from a medical doctor. Next, after an accepted diagnosis is received, the person suffering then recites the diagnosis to others and self to describe their health problem. As an acupuncture physician, when I do the asking investigation of the afflicted person what often is revealed is that their diagnosis has taken on a life of its own. What I hear is I know what is wrong with me, I have arthritis. What I understand is: my patient thinks that the diagnosis has become the answer to their health problem, even though it has not helped them understand what is causing their problem, nor has it begun to fix their problem. The author of the book that you are now holding has given us all a powerful tool to help the afflicted person- the ability to build mass & essentially building a bridge towards for the afflicted person. A bridge with a destination that provides a more coherent and healthier future. This is one of those rare books that will bridge that great gap in patient-doctor communication that is often the abyss where healthcare gets lost. Great job Curry! --Owen Marron, A.P.
