Description


This contemporary introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is written in a lively and lucid way for the general reader interested in holistic healing and internal harmony. It also explains TCM to the Western physician: medical concepts are presented in a way that does not conflict with knowledge of biomedicine, helping them appreciate TCM as complementary healthcare.Beginning with an outline of fundamental entities qi, blood and essence, the book then expounds TCM models of yin yang, the five elements and TCM syndromes that form the basis of diagnosis and therapy. Delightful chapters on the healing wonders of herbs and recipes come with instructions for preparing delicious food and teas. Explanations of acupuncture, chronic disease management and yangsheng (life cultivation) enlighten with simple yet profound ideas underlying this ancient science. They reveal how TCM retains an irreplaceable role in healthcare despite impressive advances in modern medicine.The materials in the book have been used in well-received public courses in Chinese medicine that the authors have taught for over a decade.
