A Short History of Medicine

Author: F. González-Crussi

Publisher: Modern Library

ISBN: 1588368211

Category: Medical

Page: 272

View: 2618

In this lively, learned, and wholly engrossing volume, F. González-Crussi presents a brief yet authoritative five-hundred-year history of the science, the philosophy, and the controversies of modern medicine. While this illuminating work mainly explores Western medicine over the past five centuries, González-Crussi also describes how modern medicine’s roots extend to both Greco-Roman antiquity and Eastern medical traditions. Covered here in engaging detail are the birth of anatomy and the practice of dissections; the transformation of surgery from a gruesome art to a sophisticated medical specialty; a short history of infectious diseases; the evolution of the diagnostic process; advances in obstetrics and anesthesia; and modern psychiatric therapies and the challenges facing organized medicine today. González-Crussi’s approach to these and other topics stems from his professed belief that the history of medicine isn’t just a continuum of scientific achievement but is deeply influenced by the personalities of the men and women who made or implemented these breakthroughs. And, as we learn, this field’s greatest practitioners were, like the rest of us, human beings with flaws, weaknesses, and limitations–including some who were scoundrels. Insightful, informed, and at times controversial in its conclusions, A Short History of Medicine offers an exceptional introduction to the major and many minor facets of its subject. Written by a renowned author and educator, this book gives us the very essence of humankind’s search to mitigate suffering, save lives, and unearth the mysteries of the human animal. Praise for F. González-Crussi “What Oliver Sacks does for the mind, González-Crussi [does] for the eye in this captivating set of philosophical meditations on the relationship between the viewer and the viewed.” –Publishers Weekly, on On Seeing “[González-Crussi fuses] science, literature, and personal history into highly civilized artifacts.” –The Washington Post, on There Is a World Elsewhere From the Hardcover edition.

The Biology of Acupuncture

Acupuncture, with its 3500-year-old history, is one of the most widely used methods of alternative medicine. Despite great advances in scientific knowledge, however, it is still performed as a mystical ritual explained in pre-scientific terms of hypothesised meridians, Qi, Yin/Yang and pulse diagnosis. THE BIOLOGY OF ACUPUNCTURE is a scientifically supported explanation of the basic biological mechanisms and processes underlying the practice of traditional Chinese acupuncture. It is also a teaching manual by which an evidence-based, no-needle, no-drug method of treatment can be easily learned in a very short time. There is no longer any need for hours of studying ancient Chinese metaphysical theories and complex rituals. Modem Chinese scientists working at Beijing Medical University have broken through the veil of mystery surrounding traditional Chinese acupuncture. This book reviews their thirty years of stringent neurophysiological and neurochemical research through which they discovered the real meaning of such hypothetical constructs as Qi, body energy and meridians. It also discusses the effect of electrical stimulation on specific neuropeptides in the central nervous system. Here presented for the first time is a treatment method with the benefits of acupuncture in a form compatible with the teachings of Western medicine. It is a method that should become available in the office of every practitioner of medicine. It is a simple but highly effective 'no drug' method for treating patients with pain, psychiatric problems and other chronic illnesses.
