Listening to the World: Integrating Traditional, Alternative, and Western Medicine (Live) | [Dr. Meg Jordan]

Listening to the World: Integrating Traditional, Alternative, and Western Medicine (Live)

As a medical anthropologist, Dr. Meg Jordan has traveled the world studying how we get sick and how we get well. While she recognizes the usefulness of Western medicine, she sees the limits of its "adrenaline based, parts oriented" approach. Her commitment to integrating East and West promises a truly person-based medicine in which the patient is an active participant and the goal is wellness rather than cure.

    Story
    "let us look at statistics!"

    Okay, this woman has travelled many places and seen many things. However, her interpretation of what she has seen is quite questionable. She needs a quick review of the actual CIA World Factbook to see which countries actually really have the longest lifespan. She seems to idealize the medical 'practices' in Peru. However, the average lifespan in Peru is 68.33. Talking about Japanise healing practices, would make more sense than idealizing healing practices from countries which have VERY LOW lifespans. She can critique USA HMOs all day long, however, why doesn't she look at countries which have long lifespans and high qualities of life. Basically, I was very unimpressed.

    "Great Information"
    Where does Listening to the World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Unfortunately, this was my first audiobook. I've found it hard to find the information I am looking for in audiobooks, but I find that is changing. I have a keen interest in alternative healthcare, and this book was great as she is an medical anthropologist, which gives her a great perspective to speculate on various healthcare modalities.


    What other book might you compare Listening to the World to and why?

    none, yet.


    What does Dr. Meg Jordan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is an medical anthropologist, which gives her a great perspective to speculate on various healthcare modalities.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    More than meets the eye or keeping our options open regarding healthcare


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to seeing more options on this topic.

    "An exciting perspective"

    Waiting to hear more on the brilliant effort to interpret eastern & western practioners perspective on healing.
