Volume 4 - Integrative Medicine - Allergy and Immunology - PDF
Human reason delineates domains of thinking, then defies them. Then it delineates new domains and
defies them again. This cycle of delineation and defiance of ideas and ideologies defines the human
condition. And that, in my view, is how knowledge advances. In this volume, I strive to look at immunity
and atopy through the prism of oxygen. I believe the readers will agree that in doing that I delineate a new
domain of thinking about clinical problems encountered in those fields.
Oxygen is the organizing influence of human biology and governs both the aging process and the health/dis-ease/disease continuum. This was the central theme of the five earlier volumes of this series. In this volume, I define and address two frontiers of immunity
and atopy in the context of that theme.
