 Curing Naturally with Chinese Medicine: Curing Hay (View larger image)

Like all the other books in this series, this book was written specifically for the lay reader. In particular, this book discusses hayfever and allergic asthma. The author begins by presenting an overview of the Chinese medical map. Chinese medicine is a separate and distinct system from modern Western medicine, and first the reader needs to understand some of its basic concepts and premises. Next the author discusses the Chinese medical causes and treatment of allergic rhinitis. In terms of professional treatment, the author discusses Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture and moxibustion. However, perhaps even more importantly, the author discusses a number of home remedies for hayfever and asthma. This section begins with in-depth discussions of what he calls 'The Three Free Therapies': diet, exercise, and deep relaxation. These are then supplemented by instructions on Chinese self-massage, magnet therapy, cupping, seven star hammering, self-moxibustion, and Chinese herbal porridges, teas, and patent medicines. For those who are skeptical about Chinese medicine, the author presents recent Chinese research into the Chinese medical treatment of respiratory allergies. This is followed by a selection of his own case histories using Chinese medicine on American patients. If all this has sold you on seeing a Chinese medical practitioner for your hayfever, great! The author now tells you how to find a local, qualified professional Chinese medical practitioner. He even gives addresses and phone numbers of referring and certifying agencies. This books winds up with a 'going further' section titled, 'Learning More About Chinese Medicine' which is essentially an annotated bibliography. In addition, there is a Chinese medical glossary, an author’s bibliography, and a general index, making this book a very useful resource.
