In order to treat patients successfully, a practicing doctor must know three essential things: first, the nature of the patient's physical conditions, which refers to their body types; second, the nature of the disease under treatment, which refer to the differentiation regarding syndromes of diseases; third, the nature of therapeutic agents in use, which refer to the therapeutic effects of formulas, herbs, acupuncture points, and foods, etc. Historically speaking, before Yellow Emperor's Classics was published the documents listed over 50 symptoms and diseases without syndromes. In Yellow Emperor's Classics, over 300 symptoms and diseases are mentioned with some syndromes mentioned, such as cold syndrome, deficiency syndrome, and hot syndrome, etc. A famous doctor said, "Any doctor who fails to seek the truth of differentiating between syndromes, merely vainly hoping to attain wishful herbal remedies, is not a real doctor in the truest sense of the term." As the number of syndromes have continued to increase, close to 300 in total, syndromes differentiation become a serious and complicated issue in traditional Chinses medicine. On the one hand, a disease must be traced back to its syndrome before it can be properly treated. Therefore, in Chinese medicine, a doctor treats syndromes, not diseases as such. One the other hand, a given symptom or disease under treatment may reach over 10 or 20, or even more syndromes, how can traditional method of syndromes differentiation by reasoning and speculation achieve it. In April 1984 a national conference of traditional Chinese medicine was held in China. Again in May of the same year, another similar conference was held again, just two years before my college was established. At both national conferences, over seventy experts from twenty-seven organizations attended to discuss the important issue of differentiation with respect to syndromes.

The Essentials of Chinese Medicine is a text book intended for international students who wish to gain a basic understanding of Chinese Medicine (CM) at the university level. The idea of writing such a text was originated from the Sino-American Consortium for the Advancement of Chinese Medicine (SACACM), which was founded in February 2000. In 1995, the British Hong Kong Administration set up a Preparatory Committee for the Development of Chinese Medicine to look into ways of bringing Chinese medical practice and herbal trade under proper control and r- ulation. After the reuni?cation of Hong Kong with mainland China in 1997, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region continued the efforts to uplift the practice of CM to a fully professional level through legislation. To help bring up a new generation of professional CM practitioners, the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) obtained approval from the Government’s univ- sity funding authority to develop a School of Chinese Medicine to prepare students who will meet the future professional requirements through public examinations. In order to establish itself quickly as a rigorous provider of university level CM education, HKBU sought alliance with eight major CM universities in the Chinese Mainland, and one US university which was interested in developing CM edu- tion within its medical college. As a result, the Consortium known as SACACM was formed, with ten founding institutions from Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Sh- dong, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Heilongjiang, Hong Kong, and the United States.

It covers the range of information needed to treat persons with MS, beginning with basic science and immunopathology, thorough differential diagnosis, symptom management and disease modifying therapies. This essential book also includes material covering new and experimental strategies as well as a review of commonly used complementary and alternative modalities that are used by persons with MS.Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is the most common demyelinating disease of the CNS and the third most common cause of disability among young adults. The complex management issues that are often present in the care of individuals with MS may demand the participation of health care professionals from a variety of disciplines, although the team is usually led by a neurologist. It is therefore essential for the neurologist to have a thorough grounding in the basic science and clinical phenomenology of MS. In this second edition of Primer on Multiple Sclerosis, the latest updates on therapeutics are provided, including new medications that have been FDA- approved since the first edition. Includes new diagnostic criteria, as well as any advances made in current diagnostic techniques, e.g. new imaging metrics.

Modern Western Medicine (MWM) and Ayurveda/Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be considered two extreme paradigms to complex systems. The microscopic and reductionist approach of the West prevails in acute and single-gene conditions such as infection and Mendelian disorders. The macroscopic and holistic approach of the East potentially fares well at chronic and complex conditions such as obesity and ageing. The book serves three purposes: 1) to help MWM, Ayurveda and TCM professionals get acquainted with one another; 2) to help identify common grounds for MWM, Ayurveda and TCM, rather than blindly westernizing eastern medicines or vice versa; and 3) to help translate the complementarity of MWM and Ayurveda/TCM toward an integrative multi-component healthcare. To this end, we introduce theories and tenets of the three medicines. We use bioenergetics to reconcile West and East as ATP generation, prana and qi are central to MWM, Ayurveda and TCM. We discuss clinical trials of varying experimental rigors for the assessment of the scientific evidence for treatment effectiveness. We present complementary interventions for chronic disorders and ageing. We hold that a federal unity of therapies consisting of MWM, Ayurveda and TCM better serves the wellbeing of humankind.

Alzheimer's disease, one of the most rapidly growing neurodegenerative disorders, is characterized by a progressive loss of memory. Despite several advances in the field of medical therapeutics, a viable treatment for Alzheimer's disease would be of great importance. Medicinal plants represent a largely untapped reservoir of natural medicines and potential sources of anti-Alzheimer’s drugs. The structural diversity of their phytoconstituents makes these plants a valuable source of novel lead compounds in the quest for drugs to treat Alzheimer's disease. Based on traditional literature and up-to-date research, various new therapeutically active compounds have been identified from phytoextracts, which could be useful in the treatment of cognitive disorders. Phytomedicine and Alzheimer’s Disease presents information on Mechanistic aspects of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease and the role of phytochemicals as restorative agents Understanding the complex biochemical aspects of Alzheimer’s disease Pre-clinical approaches to evaluating drugs to target Alzheimer’s disease Assessing alternative approaches to treating Alzheimer’s disease and the role of alternative medicine to delay the symptomatic progression of this disease Epigenetic changes in Alzheimer’s disease and possible therapeutic or dietary interventions This book serves as an excellent resource for scientific investigators, academics, biochemists, botanists, and alternative medicine practitioners who work to advance the role of phytomedicines in treating Alzheimer’s disease.
