Avicenna's Medicine: A New Translation of the 11th-Century Canon with Practical Applications for Integrative Health Care
Avicenna's Medicine
A New Translation of the 11th-Century Canon with Practical Applications for Integrative Health Care
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 1594774323

The first contemporary translation of the 1,000-year-old text at the foundation of modern medicine and biology

- Presents the actual words of Avicenna translated directly from the original Arabic, removing the inaccuracies and errors of most translators

- Explains current medical interpretations and ways to apply Avicenna's concepts today, particularly for individualized medicine

- Reveals how Avicenna's understanding of the "humors" corresponds directly with the biomedical classes known today as proteins, lipids, and organic acids

A millennium after his life, Avicenna remains one of the most highly regarded physicians of all time. His Canon of Medicine, also known as the Qanun, is one of the most famous and influential books in the history of medicine, forming the basis for our modern understanding of human health and disease. It focused not simply on the treatment of symptoms, but on finding the cause of illness through humoral diagnosis--a method still used in traditional Unani and Ayurvedic medicines in India.

Originally written in Arabic, Avicenna's Canon was long ago translated into Latin, Persian, and Urdu, yet many of the inaccuracies from those first translations linger in current English translations. Translated directly from the original Arabic, this volume includes detailed commentary to explain current biomedical interpretations of Avicenna's theories and ways to apply his treatments today, particularly for individualized medicine. It shows how Avicenna's understanding of the humors corresponds directly with the biomedical definition of proteins, lipids, and organic acids: the nutrient building blocks of our blood and body. With this new translation of the first volume of his monumental work, Avicenna's Canon becomes just as relevant today as it was 1,000 years ago.

Coyote Healing: Miracles in Native Medicine
Coyote Healing
Miracles in Native Medicine
Paperback      ISBN: 1591430100

Distills the basic principles used by Native American healers to create miracles.

- Explores the power of miracles in both traditional Native American healing and modern scientific medicine.

- Cites numerous cases in which people whose conditions were deemed hopeless were miraculously healed.

- Enables readers to start their own healing journey through the exploration of purpose, meaning, and acceptance.

- By the author of Coyote Medicine.

Native American healers expect miracles and prepare in all possible ways for them to occur. In modern medicine, miraculous recoveries are discarded from studies as anomalous cases that will taint the otherwise orderly results. Yet this small group of miracle patients has much to teach us about healing and survival.

Coyote Healing distills the common elements in miracle cures to help people start their own healing journey. Looking at 100 cases of individuals who experienced miracle cures, Dr. Mehl-Madrona found the same preconditions that Native American healers know are necessary in order for miracles to occur. The author reveals what he learned from both his own practice and the interviews he conducted with survivors about the common features of their path back to wellness. Survivors found purpose and meaning in their life-threatening illness; peaceful acceptance was key to their healing. Coyote Healing also tells of another kind of miracle--finding faith, hope, and serenity even when a cure seems impossible.
