The Contemporary Oriental Medicine Foundation Archives - Dr. Leon Hammer M.D. articles Archive of Dr. Hammer’s Older Articles

This archive contains Dr. Hammer's previously published articles. This material serves as the base to some of his current work, and can be seen as the foundation to much of Contemporary Oriental Medicine. In many instances, the subject matter discussed in these articles has now been updated, and altered to fit with Dr. Hammer's current, evolved understanding, but the articles are invaluable, both as they are and in a historical context, and also to shed light on those issues that he has not yet re-clarified in his current projects. We hope that you find them useful and enlightening.
