Insightful and pioneering, The Poetry and Physics of Eastern Herbal Medicine provides a systematic understanding and appreciation of Eastern medicine and clearly compares and validates it with modern physics in layperson’s terms. It identifies how both these fields use metaphorical poetry to explain their theories and our everyday experiences, and offers analytical thinkers a significant understanding of mystical Eastern medicine. Until now, none have so clearly bridged-the-gap between Eastern medicine principles and Western thinking and science in any depth. Unusually and uncommonly proficient in both science and Eastern medicine, The Poetry and Physics of Eastern Herbal Medicine delivers distinct insights into to the seemingly divergent worlds of Eastern medicine and modern physics.
“Truth is knowledge of things as they are, as they were, and as they are to come.’ (DC 93:24). If we are to improve the practice of medicine, we must gather the truth wherever it can be found. I am grateful for Dr Judyth’s efforts in sharing the wisdom gained of her herbal practice and sharing the many truths and harmonies between eastern and western herbal traditions. Western medicine needs more “yin” rescue and Dr Judyth valiantly succeeds in bringing valuable knowledge and truth to the forefront. Clinicians of all types will find it a valuable resource to consult in helping individualize therapy. One must first understand the patient to understand what remedy to give. In this book, Dr Judyth shares the systems that can be used to succeed in understanding the patient and selecting the right remedy. — Scott M. Jensen, MD, Functional Medicine, Jensen Family Wellness
Ayurveda is just not a medical system of healing but also a way of life, the deeper we get to know and there is more thirst to learn and feel it more. This book has given me a craving for more . Reaching the end, one feels—O! My heart wants more and more of this to evolve and get more close to the universe. Dr Shamosh, has beautifully related the Physics principles with Ayurveda and has helped good Ayurvedic Vaidyas like me to prove to the world that Ayurveda is a science and not just a myth as many say so. Really reading this book was a pleasure and I am sure that generations to come will cherish this wonderful writing, and will be happy to learn Ayurveda in a more scientific manner. — Dr. Vikram Chauhan, Planet Ayurveda, India
