"This clinical manual describes the treatment of 185 diseases and 18 common symptoms with Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. These diseases span such specialist areas as internal medicine, surgery, gynecology, pediatrics, dermatology and otorhinolaryngology. The etiology and pathogenesis of disease are discussed briefly, but the main emphasis is on key points in diagnosis, differentiation of syndromes, and treatment, particularly with herbal medicine. The treatment of each disease is discussed in five parts:
1. Treatment based on differentiation of syndromes (herbal treatment)
2. Patent Chinese medicines
3. Simple recipes of herbal medicines
4. Acupuncture and moxibustion
5. Other therapies
With its comprehensive coverage of over 200 diseases and common symptoms providing solutions to most clinical problems, this book will be useful to all acupuncture practitioners and latter-year students (including physiotherapists and medically qualified acupuncturists), as well as Western and Chinese herbal medicine practitioners."
