The Spark in the Machine: How the Science of Acupuncture Explains the Mysteries of Western Medicine by Daniel Keown


Spark in the Machine blew me away. Dan Keown’s writing is witty and accessible and his connections between Chinese and western medicine are illuminating. This book details the different systems in Chinese medicine and fills in the blanks using western medical anatomy and physiology – and shows that the ancient Chinese knew these things thousands of years ago.

Western science has too young to be able to explain Chinese medicine, but this book, along with the newly discovered organ, the interstitium, and research on fascia and its bio-conductivity, is the beginning of true understanding. It is becoming clear how the ancient Chinese and the modern western theories of medicine support and complement each other other.

I can’t wait to read this book again.
