Institute of East-West Medicine

The Institute of East-West Medicine was duly incorporated as a non-profit organization and recognized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code in 1997. The mission of the Institute is to promote understanding and foster research regarding Eastern-healing systems especially as it relates and integrates with contemporary Western medicine. Towards this goal, we are advised by a distinguished Board of Researchers, Physicians, and Professors/Educators who guide the Institute. Our main project currently is the ambitious database project to catalogue and publish relevant research in English/Chinese encompassing all anti-cancer Asian herbal materia. This will be the most complete database of its kind existing in the world today upon completion. The database is accessible at www.asiancancerherb.info and is free and open to the international research community as well as the public. We work closely with the New York Open Center, Procultura, Tibet House and other non-profit organizations in our work and present and past projects also include the sponsorship a randomized trial of acupuncture for dysmenorrhea conducted in Shanghai , the ongoing Tibetan Medicine practice at our Manhattan location, sponsorship of the publication of the periodical AyurVijnana by the International Trust for Traditional Medicine (ITTM), and joint sponsorship of research and preservation of endangered Himalayan herbs in Nepal with ITTM, the Institute of Traditional Medicine as well as Earthwatch Institute, sponsorship of the 1st International Tibetan Medicine Congress in Washington DC in 1998 and the 1st International Asian Therapies for Cancer Conference in New York City in 2000. We welcome your suggestions and hope that you will support us with a tax-deductible contribution such that we can further our work.
