Revue de presse

Gregory Petaro, M.D. A must for any athlete, whether a weekend warrior or serious competitor. I have used these strategies successfully in my practice.

Kevin V. Ergil, M.A., M.S.,, Director, Graduate Program in Oriental Medicine, Touro College This book should have enormous value to anyone engaged in an active lifestyle or involved in the management of minor trauma, especially as it relates to sports medicine.

Présentation de l'éditeur

A renowned expert in Chinese sports medicine and martial arts reveals ancient Eastern secrets for healing common injuries, including sprains, bruises, deep cuts, and much more.

For centuries, Chinese martial arts masters have kept their highly prized remedies as carefully guarded secrets, calling such precious and powerful knowledge "a tooth from the tiger's mouth." Now, for the first time, these deeply effective methods are revealed to Westerners who want alternative ways to treat the acute and chronic injuries experienced by any active person.

While many books outline the popular teachings of traditional Chinese medicine, only this one offers step-by-step instructions for treating injuries. Expert practitioner and martial artist Tom Bisio explains the complete range of healing strategies and provides a Chinese first-aid kit to help the reader fully recover from every mishap: cuts, sprains, breaks, dislocations, bruises, muscle tears, tendonitis, and much more.

He teaches readers how to:

  • Examine and diagnose injuries

  • Prepare and apply herbal formulas

  • Assemble a portable kit for emergencies

  • Fully recuperate with strengthening exercises and healing dietary advice

Comprehensive and easy to follow, with drawings to illustrate both the treatment strategies and the strengthening exercises, this unique guidebook will give readers complete access to the powerful healing secrets of the great Chinese warriors.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unique book on "alternative" medicine 14 octobre 2010
Par Michel
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
"Alternative" being actually older by 2 millenia than the young mainstream Occidental medicine.

There are few such books : unique by their content, because so few people have the knowledge, and then the will and possibility to share with the rest of the world.

The many exercises described, or similar can be found in any good yoga book, but I was interrested into the recipes for herbal medecine.

Since English is not my mothertongue, (and even if it were, I don't think every English native speaker knows all the herbs mentioned in the book) I find it great that Tom Bisio gives the Chinese AND the Latin name for every plant.

The recipes are presented in a clever way : first, a list of all the ingredients, and then the preparation, so that you don't get stuck in the middle thinking "sh*t, I don't have this one!".

Many examples and personal stories are here to illustrate how well each recipe works, however, I prefer to test on myself. The thing is that I couldn't test all injuries by myself (luckily!), but reading here and there on the net, on martial arts forums and e-shops, I came to realize that some of the recipes are often mentioned and very similar (I'm thinking of dit da jow for instance).

A good book to have if you run a dojo, or just if you practice martial arts. Good thing to have too, if you try to avoid taking chemical painkillers and cleanse your body (I found mention of the book on a Calory Restriction forum).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a gem of a book 7 octobre 2004
Par Stephen Lamade - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
First a disclaimer: I've been a student of Tom's for over 10 years, both as martial artist and a practitioner of Chinese medicine. (In fact, I became an acupuncturist partly as a result of having had my martial arts injuries sucessfully treated with Chinese medicine.) So, I am most definitely a biassed reviewer!

I'll focus on a small portion of the book, one which is of primary interest to martial artists: the use of herbal training formulas (Die Da formulas) to heal and prevent injuries:

A Tooth From the Tiger's Mouth includes in-depth discussion of the following external formulas:

A basic Die Da Jiu (trauma liniment) for acute injuries

A formula for Tendon Lotion for chronic injuries bothered by damp and cold

U-I Oil - a patent remedy

Chinese Massage Oil - a patent remedy

Black Ghost Oil - a patent remedy

San Huang San - a herbal poultice for acute injuries

Sinew-Bone Poultice - a herbal poultice for healing middle or late stage injuries

Wu Yang Pain Relieving Plaster - a patent remedy

Yunnan Paiyao Plaster - a patent remedy

701 Plaster - a patent remedy

Hua Tuo Anticontusion Rheumatism Plaster - a patent remedy

Gou Pi Plaster - a patent remedy

Tendon Relaxing Soak - an herbal soak

Warming Soak - an herbal soak

The following internal formulas are also discussed in detail:

Trauma pills - an herbal pill made with ground herbs and honey

Resinall K - a patent remedy made from an alchohol extract; similar to Qi Li San

Rib Fracture Formula

Bone Knitting Formula

Tonic formulas such as Ge Jie Da Bu Wan, etc.

Individual herbs for healing sinew and bone injuries

Nutritional and dietary supplements

Certainly there are many Die Da formulas available and several excellent books about Die Da formulae are available to the martial artist. However, Tom's book excells insofar as he provides very concise and accurate information about WHY and WHEN to use different Die Da formulas (based on Chinese medicine theory). Having taken many of Tom's "Kung Fu Traumatology" courses over the past ten years, I can definitively state that A Tooth From the Tiger's Mouth provides the very best, fundamental, and practical information available to the athlete and martial artist about treating sports and martial arts injuries with Chinese medicine. I remember hearing Tom talk about these formulas for the first time, making or buying them, and then trying them out on myself or on friends and training partners as we got injured during our training. The bottom line is - they work.

However, Tom's book is much more than a discussion of Die Da formulas. There are detailed chapters that describe the principles of Chinese sports medicine, injury prevention with respect to excercise, diet and health preservation, the various therapies of Chinese sports medicine, (including the management of cuts and lacerations, cupping and bleeding, acupressure, massage, and moxibustion), and the treatment of common sports injuries (over 30 are described). Moreover, the book is well-written, logical, and easy to follow. This is a gem of a book and would be welcome addition to any martial artist's book shelf. The fact that all of the therapies described in the book can be sucessfully applied to the treatment of sports-related injuries, makes it that more especially valuable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally an "Eastern" book that's practical! 12 novembre 2004
Par Moonlight - Publié sur
I had been looking everywhere for a book which is practical and yet espouses the wonderful "goodies" of Chinese medicine, and this is it! I was surfing through Amazon and found this book, bought it, read the entire thing in a single weekend, and I am awestruck by how practical and easy to follow it is. I've already used it as a reference twice for some minor ailments/injuries I had. And now I plan on using it to learn the "internal energy" exercises that are recommended.

Absolutely GET THIS BOOK! It's as necessary for the home as is a first-aid kit and/or a fire extinguisher. Amazing, and that's coming from someone who didn't know squat about Chinese medicine before reading this.

I repeat, GET THIS BOOK!!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Practical work that is Past Due 26 juin 2005
Par H. Asbury - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book discusses injury management and rehabilitation in direct simple language. It's content is profound and yet is without artifice. Simply put, it is practical, easy to access, and serves not only the needs of martial artists, but other athletes as well. It's the kind of book I always wanted to see offered, but never was able to find. Anyone interested in managing injuries (including their own)should read this book!
Addendum: Since my original review, I have been in practice in acupuncture and Chinese medicine for two years, and this book has not lost one bit of its value. For example, I have used the rib fracture formula on several patients who came back to me raving about how much better they felt. This book has useful and easy to follow instruction. Don't miss it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book! 18 novembre 2004
Par Rorkie - Publié sur
I can tell by the name that "Tom Bisio" is not some Chinese guy writing from Hong Kong somewhere, but even if I didn't see the name, I would know it's someone domestic who wrote this book. I say this because the book is simple to follow.

Most of the books on Chinese medicine are filled with either English I don't understand or flowery language that I do understand but just roll my eyes at. And too many times the books have pencil drawings of acupuncture points which I *know* are NOT in the right place.

Bisio's book is simple to follow, and I really appreciate the anecdotes that are written thoughout the book, both how the author treated his own injuries and/or how he treated his patients.

What I really like is how the book combines remedies for herbs with remedies for diet, as well as explaining how to treat injuries as soon as they happen. All three are important, and this guide is quite excellent at detailing what needs to be done. (Finding places which sell these herbs might be sometimes tricky, but it can still be done.)

Well worth the expense and well worth the time to read it, I recommend this book with my highest enthusiasm.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful book, but one small issue 27 août 2009
Par Alexander F. Heyne - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
First of all, I find this book to be excellent in terms of clarity, understanding of injuries and how they heal, and the degree to which it is so simple that you can "do it yourself".

However, there arises one major issue. For example, I went to make one of the liniment lotions, and looked through all of his online resources posted. None of them had some of the herbs that were needed.

Next, he mentions the "Nine herbs that heal broken bones" on Page 62-63.

Tell me if you'd feel OK purchasing some of these, and whether or not you actually COULD even purchase these: #7 - Tiger bone. He does give a warning that tigers are almost extinct, and instead says you should use cat or dog bone. (No, not my poor little chihuahua!). #6: Land tortoise shell. Honestly? #8 Wingless cockroach. Well, I can find that one easily, just stop my feet around and I'll have a whole buncha those!

I think he could have just as easily excluded some of those rare, unethical, hard-to-find components, and I would have been a little less turned off. But, like I said, I consider the book to be a treasure for those athletes or martial artists. In my opinion, it would be smarter to use his guidelines (e.g. on how to make a liniment), and then use herbs that actually grow in your bioregion.

Overall, definitely a great book, but be wary of some parts where Chinese folk medicine creeps in. Mr. Bisio has done a great job of working in a simple way of understanding human anatomy and physiology, coupled with an understanding of how the body heals optimally.
