Synopsis

The traditional medicines of Middle Asia are rich and varied - from the Ayurveda and Siddha medicines of India, to the Unani and Sufi healing practices of the Middle East.



Dr. Marc S. Micozzi unfolds the compelling idea that vital energy, expressed as "prana" in the Indian practice of Ayurveda, is the unifying concept that underpins and connects all of these traditions. Describing the origins, health strategies, diagnostic approaches, and modern-day uses of each tradition, he also draws parallels to, and finds correlations with, mainstream Western concepts - and demonstrates how all these therapies fit within the context of their own cultures and ours.



This groundbreaking book will be of interest to practitioners of all Middle Eastern and Asian medical traditions, complementary and alternative health practitioners, and anyone with an interest in Middle Eastern and Asian approaches to health and well-being.

Marc S. Micozzi, MD, PhD, was the Founder and Director of the Policy Institute for Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. He is former Executive Director of the College of Physicians, and Director of the National Museum of Health and Medicine. For many years, Dr. Micozzi has pioneered vital health information to professionals and consumers, collaborating with former US Surgeon General C. Everett Koop and other leaders in the growing wellness movement. He has frequently shared the speaker's podium and the radio and television airwaves with leaders such as Drs. Andrew Weil, Deepak Chopra, Mehmet Oz, and Dean Ornish. Dr. Micozzi has a consulting medical practice in Bethesda, Maryland, and Rockport, Massachusetts.
