Bowel Ecology – A Historical Note

Bowel Ecology – Circa 1987 and 2015

Majid Ali, M.D.

On March 24, 2015, Med Scape posted an article entitled “The Microbiome and Brain Health: What’s the Connection?” (See the link below). I read the article with great interest. The part of the article I liked best was the bibliography. Specifically, it contained 38 citations. I highly recommend these citations for serious students of gut ecology.

Below is brief text from a previous article in the library of my own on bowel ecology. Readers can access this library at and the following free courses offered at this and www.AliScience.Org:

* Dr. Ali’s Course on Bowel Health

A Brief Historical Note

In 1987, I published a monograph entitled “Altered States of Bowel ecology. Eight years later, I filed for registration of “Bowel Ecology Protocol” with the United States trademark office (for Institute of Preventive Medicine, Inc. in Denville, NJ, 07834 (Serial Number: 74650878). In 1998, the trademark was registered (Number: 2168764).

During the 1990s, I published the first nine volumes of my 12-volume textbook entitled “The Principles and Practice of Integrative Medicine” and served as the chairman of the Department of Integrative Medicine and President of Capital University of Integrative Medicine, Washington, D.C. The University community was very open to the merits of ecologic thinking in clinical medicine. A Google search shows a large number of articles written by them.
