Hypermobility syndromes are more common, complex and varied than most practitioners realise. Every hypermobile patient is unique, and therefore challenging to treat using a pre-set paradigm or protocol. The hEDS population can be underserved by Western medicine and there is much that Chinese medicine can do for this community.

This book is one of the first of its kind - a Chinese Medicine text focusing specifically on hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Presenting existing bio-medical narratives before providing an in-depth exploration of the Chinese Medicine paradigms, this guide gives an overview of comprehensive treatment scenarios and addresses issues faced by EDS patients including pain management, psycho-emotional challenges, disruption of gut health, and chronic inflammation, including post-Lyme syndrome.

Press Reviews

  • C. Pierce Salguero, Professor of Asian History & Health Humanities, Penn State University

    A thoughtful book! One wishes that more Chinese medicine practitioners engaged in such musings about how translation and crosscultural exchange affect clinical practice.
  • Michael Arsenault, Lic. Ac, founder of Emily Skin Soothers Inc

    In 23 years of practice this is the first book I've seen that addresses EDS from a TCM view. It provides the knowledge to recognize and understand this often misdiagnosed illness and the tools to formulate treatment plans for EDS sufferers. Highly recommended reading.
  • Dr. Chia Fu, immunologist and public health communicator

    Dr. Bruno has expertly interwoven her passion and understanding of Chinese medicine to discuss the rare disorder Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, or specifically, Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS). It is easy for a scientist to dismiss this literature, given that it does not adhere to traditional viewpoints of western modern medicine. But as an academic and allopathic practitioner, I do encourage readers of all academic backgrounds to read this book. Dr. Bruno not only demonstrates her knowledge of the pathophysiology and history, but she also models cultural sensitivity when comparing existing practices with Chinese approaches and spirituality. This is a remarkable and thought-provoking book!
