Case histories with diagnoses present common conditions that professionals will often find in practice. Logically organized to help you quickly find the information you need in clinical situations.

Chinese medicine is a complete medical system, developed over 2,000 years ago, which is used to prevent, diagnose and treat illness, and to encourage good health. Unlike conventional Western medicine which tends to focus on specific isolated areas of disease, Chinese medicine is a more holistic, non-invasive approach, emphasizing the interaction of the individual's body, mind and spirit and its relationship with the environment. The curative effects of Chinese medicine have amazed many Western doctors, and many of them now practice acupuncture or Chinese herbalism in addition to conventional medicine. Thousands of Western patients are receiving the benefits of the traditional Chinese approach where Western medicine has failed. This authoritative book is a fully comprehensive guide to the four branches of Chinese medicine: herbalism, food cures, acupuncture and manipulative therapy. Edited by Dr Duo Gao, one of the world's leading authorities on Chinese medicine, the book is illustrated throughout with color photographs, easy-reference charts and artworks.
