- Personalized Chinese Medicine logic or magic -– Dr. Yair Maimon
Chinese medicine is based on the principle that each person is unique.
Therefore, we are using personalized medicine. The diagnosed process involved methods such as: observation, assessing the emotions, palpation, pulse taking etc. This brings some times to a known clinical dilemma of having few treatment options to the same person with the difficulty in deciding which is the best one. The use of innovative sensitivity laboratory testing in in cancer patient may presents an exceptional opportunity to the decision-making between few options in Chinese medicine treatment of cancer. It also presents a surprising evidence that the clinician subjective approach is effective. Finally it helps to bridge the gap of art of healing with the science of medicine while respecting the value of seeing each patient as unique.

This presentation will outline the challenges, and provide guidance for integration of acupuncture based on nine years of operating the complementary medicine service at Bnai Zion Medical Center.
