Jerry Kantor’s book Interpreting Chronic Illness views three seemingly incompatible fi elds of medicine through the lens of phenomenology and develops novel patterns of care for patients with chronic illnesses.
“A brilliant and groundbreaking work by an integrative practitioner who ‘speaks the language’ of three very different healing paradigms—biomedicine (modern Western medicine), Traditional Chinese Medicine and homeopathy. . . . Kantor simultaneously updates the Five Elements model of Traditional Chinese Medicine; provides fresh insights into the major homeopathic remedies based on the Five Elements model; and shows how both can address the diagnostic categories of biomedicine.
This will be an essential book for practitioners and students of all three modalities who want to expand their healing paradigm.”

“I won’t let another physician touch me until he/she has read this book.”

“The author’s conceptual model of disease/illness is both thought provoking and comforting for classical homeopaths as it brings some of the ‘mystery’ of homeopathy into a theoretical construct.”
“Homeopathic and Chinese medicine both interface via the energetic information system that influences or controls health. The author’s description of this control system, based on the philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine, can help bring together the two professions as allies in healing patients.”
“...the integration must be artfully done to be meaningful and the author as achieved that.”
