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!

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently released its 11th International Classification of Diseases (ICD), which include Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for the first time; with a world integration of Chinese medicine into our mainstream health system being one of the best possible outcomes.
The significance of this could be a greater acceptance and inclusion for TCM around the world. According to David Cyranoski from Nature (1), this new classification will include diagnostic terms and classification of conditions in TCM, which can be used globally to expand the understanding of our current and emerging health challenges.
According to the WHO (2), the ICD is the foundation to identify diseases and health trends around the world, for the purpose of creating statistics for diagnostic classification that serves both clinical and research purposes. This new inclusion of traditional medicines appears in the new chapter 26 (3) in the ICD, which can be accessed here: icd.who.int/browse11/l-m/en#/http%3a%2f%2fid.who.int%2ficd%2fentity%2f718687701
One great significance of this inclusion could be a greater understanding of how Chinese medicine works in a mainstream medicine setting, with possible improved research protocols and applications brought into standard medical settings.
There are a number of challenges involved in this new addition. As explained by Cyranoski (2) and Katherine Rushlau from Integrative Practitioner (4), as Chinese medicine becomes more accepted worldwide, it is also in an increased constraint to support its efficacy by means of scientific validation. I personally welcome this challenge as this new ICD addition might lead to better financial support and better accreditation for TCM research worldwide.
In addition, another complicated challenge will be to arrive to a clear and practical understanding of the conceptual and complex jargon of Chinese medicine. Bridging this current obstacle could increase the acceptance and proper application of TCM by means of clarification and practicality.
These are great news for TCM worldwide, which although come with a responsibility to maintain a high professional standard; also open the door for this great and beautiful medical practice to help provide for our modern health needs.
