Clinical Environmental Medicine
Identification and Natural Treatment of Diseases Caused by Common Pollutants
Walter J. Crinnion, Joseph E. Pizzorno Jr.
Did you know that high levels of toxins in the human body can be linked to common conditions such as infertility, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes? With therapeutic guidance designed for clinicians, Clinical Environmental Medicine focuses on how toxins such as arsenic, lead, mercury and organophosphates have become one of the leading causes of chronic disease in the industrial world. The first edition of this text describes how to treat these undesirable elements and molecules that can poison enzyme systems, damage DNA, increase inflammation and oxidative stress, and damage cell membranes. Expert authors Walter Crinnion and Joseph E. Pizzorno offer practical guidance for assessing both total body load as well as specific toxins. In addition, evidence-based treatment procedures provide recommendations for decreasing toxin exposure and supporting the body’s biotransformation and excretion processes.
An Introduction to Western Medical Acupuncture, 2nd Edition
Adrian White, Mike Cummings, Jacqueline Filshie
Now in its 2nd edition, An Introduction to Western Medical Acupuncture provides a broad evidence-based approach to acupuncture when used as part of modern medicine. Illustrated throughout it gives the practitioner an essential guide for deciding where and how to treat conditions with acupuncture, and how to avoid known risks associated with it. Ultimately it provides the practitioner with a tool to develop safe and effective practice. For this edition the text has been revised, updated and extensively re-written. A new chapter brings together the understanding of how pain is recognised by the nervous system, and how acupuncture can influence these pathways. This is followed by six chapters providing detailed explanations of the effects and mechanisms of acupuncture, organised according to three recognised treatment approaches – needling to produce local changes, to generate effects at the level of the spinal segment, and to modify the overall function of the nervous system. The chapters on the evidence from research have been also updated.
