Overview

The 2nd edition of The Practice of Chinese Medicine: The Treatment of Diseases with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs describes the application of traditional Chinese medical theory to the diagnosis and treatment of 48 diseases, conditions and disorders. In addition to the existing 34 covered in the first edition, 14 new conditions and symptoms have been added, and these include common, chronic, and acute conditions which clinicians may see in their practice. Each chapter contains aetiology and pathology; differential diagnosis according to TCM; selection of treatments with acupuncture and herbs, with explanation of choices; case studies for illustration; summary of Western differential diagnosis; and discussion of prognosis and prevention. This book brings the enormous wealth of the author's experience, and his insights in applying TCM medicine to a Western context, to the support of all clinicians whatever their own range of experiences.

"...the "excellent" book on Chinese medicine is now available in a concise CD-ROM format...the user can add his own notes, create bookmarks, and highlight areas of interest ...includes a search option and hypertext links."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This well laid-out book with excellent texts is easy to use, and suitable for Chinese medicine students and practitioners. To quote from another new book edited by Hugh MacPherson, Acupuncture Research, ‘One of the key characteristics of a profession is the ownership of a unique body of knowledge that informs professional practice and is constantly reviewed, renewed and augmented by the profession itself.’ This beautifully presented text by Maciocia has clearly achieved this outcome." Australian Journal of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

"This book is one of the most authentic and comprehensive in print and will prove to be an invaluable resource for practitioners of Chinese medicine." Embody Magazine, summer 2009
