This title was originally intended to be used as a textbook for
MDs and other medical practitioners who come to China to study Chinese
medicine. It relays the fundamentals of Chinese medical theory in a way
that can be easily understood by Western physicians. Since Chinese
medicine is, essentially, a ""science"" in and of itself, the greatest
challenge of learning Chinese medicine comes from the fact that it is
based on a system of logic that is very different from what the average
medical practitioner is used to.
This text demystifies the principles of
Chinese medicine and breaks it down to its basic elements. It offers a
clear and concise introduction to Chinese medical physiology, pathology,
diagnosis and treatment.This is a highly informative book for all
professional health care providers who are interested in studying
Chinese medicine, and for anyone who simply wishes to understand the
""science"" behind this ancient art of healing.
