9780091856267: The Integrated Health Bible: Healing, Vitality and Well-Being - The Ultimate Reference Guide

While conventional medicine has disease as its focus, integrated medicine concentrates on the powers of the body that promote health. Central to Dr Ali's philosophy is this concept of self-help and the fact that 80 per cent of illness can be cured without drugs. He believes the majority of illnesses are caused by the emotional, psychological and physical strain we put ourselves under. The Integrated Health Bible shows you how to reverse this by helping the body heal itself and to restore vitality and well-being. This is done by following the Lifestyle Programme, which consists of a regimen of diet, exercise, yoga, relaxation and meditation. And for when things go wrong, there is a diagnosis and treatment programme for up to 40 common ailments - including asthma, back problems, infertility, migraine, sinusitis and stress - combining specific treatments (such as homeopathy, acupuncture, ayurveda), exercises and tips for each problem.

Review:

Physical illness is often seen as something of an inevitability, something that could strike at any time without warning, leaving us at the mercy of doctors and drugs. Heart disease costs the US 200 billion dollars a year, their number one biggest killer and yet it is a condition that is largely preventable. Integrated medicine concentrates on your body's own power to keep itself healthy, encompassing a blend of conventional, complementary and traditional methods. Dr Ali Mosaraf has pioneered this approach to health and today runs the Integrated Medical Centre in London, the first of its kind in Europe. His clinic and his style of treatment have attracted a wide client base, many of them celebrities, through word of mouth recommendations, some of which are used in the introduction.

The Integrated Health Bible promises to open up Dr Ali's knowledge to a wider, but no doubt, equally appreciative audience. He introduces his theories by explaining where his ideas originated, the history of medicine and looking at how the body works. Self-help is central to his philosophy and he calls this truly holistic approach to health the "Lifestyle Programme". The three pillars of this encompass diet, exercise and massage, and equal emphasis is placed on meditation and relaxation in order to manage stress. Following the Lifestyle Programme is done with the goal of maintaining health, a case of prevention being much better, and cheaper, than cure. But the third part of the book deals with what to do when things go wrong. Common ailments are all here and treatments cover everything from stress, flu, backache to infertility. Strategies and solutions are also recommended for serious illnesses such as cancer and heart disease.

Throughout the information is comprehensive and Dr Ali's writing style compelling and easy to understand. He approaches his subject with vigour and clarity and rather than issuing directives, provides explanations of why things go wrong and what to we can actually do about it. The Integrated Health Bible is set to be an immensely valuable and significant book. Given the increasing stresses we place on our bodies and the restrictions of our current health service, the move towards self help and restoring our bodies natural capacity to heal and take care of itself is long overdue. In the capable, compassionate hands of Dr Ali a healthy future is almost guaranteed. --Rachel O'Connor

From the Author:

COMMENT ON THE INTEGRATED HEALTH BIBLE BY DR. MOSARAF ALI
My maternal grandfather, Dr. Abdul Hameed, was a conventional doctor who specialised in homeopathy and integrated the two systems of medicine. My early memories go back to those times when I used to watch him examine patients – looking at their tongue and eyes, feeling their pulse – before prescribing medicines. My favourite game as a toddler was to play doctor, imitating my grandfather. It was then my interest in folk medicine grew.

I went to a Christian Brothers’ boarding school which was run by Irish and Australian Brothers who were very strict but very committed to instilling the correct values in a boy. My dream to become a doctor was very strong and during the holidays I would spend hours in the United States Information Service Library in Calcutta reading books in psychology, physiology and anatomy. Rather a strange occupation for a 12 year old!

My university studies took me from Delhi to Moscow where the Dean of the Faculty, Professor Yuri Romashoff, was an eminent Soviet cardiac surgeon. He was deeply interested in fasting therapy, iridology, tongue diagnosis and yoga and encouraged students to study these subjects. Although I was interested I was determined to be a good general physician first and it was only after the completion of my MD studies that I turned my attention to these subjects. I became the first foreigner to be admitted to a postgraduate course at The Central Institute of Advanced Medical Studies where classified subjects like cosmic medicine, parapsychology and experimental medicine were studied.

Over the years, my studies and work have taken me around the world. After setting up my own Centre for Integrated Medicine in Hong Kong in 1989, I was invited to set up a department at the Hale Clinic in 1991. In 1992, by coincidence, I met Prince Charles at a reception and that meeting became a major turning point in my life. I knew then that Integrated Medicine, a name that I had created some 20 years ago, was to become a reality. I opened the Integrated Medical Centre in London in 1998 with a team of 15 doctors and therapists. It has now grown into a respectable medical institution catering to people from all walks of life, from both the UK and abroad.

I believe the time is now ripe to write about my philosophy, how I treat and prevent illnesses but above all about restoring health. I hope you enjoy reading it and practise what you learn.
