I would like to introduce you to a new modern scientific approach into how acupuncture and Chinese Medicine work: "The Spark in the Machine, How the Science of Acupuncture Explain the Mysteries of Western Medicine" by Dr Daniel Keown.
Dr Daniel Keown is an English medical doctor who has dedicated his time into revealing how all this abstract and hard to understand Chinese medicine and acupuncture work, from a modern framework.
His work and research are invaluable for both present and future times. Not only does he delivers an extreme clarity into the deep intricacies and complex conceptuality of Chinese medicine; but he gives it a new view in terms of its possible future application for mainstream health.
This book is written for all members of the public and you can find it in both hard copy and ebook. This is a MUST read for anyone interested in this great ancient medicine and for any Chinese medicine doctor.
Finally, a lot of the answers are here. Please enjoy!
