A staple of traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, Cordyceps sinensis has recently made its way to the Western world with equally impressive results. Studies now show that this “miracle mushroom” undeniably aids in the treatment of immune-related illnesses such as diabetes, cancer, AIDS and lupus. Cordyceps has also been used to successfully treat pulmonary conditions, including bronchitis, COPD and asthma, as well as cardiovascular disease, fatigue and even sexual dysfunction.
In her book, Cordyceps: Treating Diabetes, Cancer and Other Illnesses, Nathalie Valkov, PhD, L.Ac, expertly integrates both Eastern and Western approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of illness. Using the latest research available, she also demystifies the terminology in an effort to make “hard science” accessible. The clinical research on cordyceps is then balanced with actual case studies from Dr. Valkov’s professional practice.
Unique in its approach and subject matter, Cordyceps: Treating Diabetes, Cancer and Other Illnesses will empower the reader to make educated decisions concerning overall health and the treatment of illness.
- I found it very interesting because there are not many books covering Chinese medicine that have actual references to treatment of patients. And the best was that there is no medical jargon, so it made reading the book very easy - Violeta Nazario, BayamonPR
- Dr. Valkov explains the science behind Cordyceps in a way that is simultaneously thorough yet easy to understand. And her ability to blend and compare Eastern and Western approaches helps the reader to make more informed, best-of-both-worlds decisions about their healthcare- Melinda Maerker, Los Angeles Ca.
