In the ancient tradition of Chinese medicine, illness is a disharmony of the whole body. The aim is to restore harmony through herbal medicine, acupuncture, moxibustion and the diagnostic skills of the physician. The governing principle is to balance Yin and Yang and to restore the interconnections between all aspects of the organism. This remarkable book explains the theory and practice of Chinese medicine. More than that, it mixes the most up-to-date knowledge of the oriental approach to healing with cutting-edge scientific research.
'While the book's rich detail makes it of great use to practising healers, it is in its entirety very simply written, enjoyable reading for the layman... An instructive, profound and important work.' Professor Martin Schwartz, University of California, Berkeley

First U.K. Edition. silver gilt titles spine; illustrated by b/w. line drawings; "many of us are aware that there is a whole other system of healing - the Chinese way - which is very different from Western practice, and often astoundingly effective. Here at last is the first popular book on this fascinating subject. The author, an American who studied in China for four years, is the leading practitioner of Chinese medicine in the United States. In an engaging and straightforward account he contrasts Western and Eastern medicine. Where a Western doctor sees a distinct disease, the Chinese physician sees a 'pattern of disharmony' that is disturbing the patient's bodily balance. Searching for signs and symptoms a Western physician might never heed, the Chinese doctor prescribes a treatment that will 'reharrnonize' the patient. In clear layman's terms, Chinese Medicine explains the methods of diagnosis, the principles of treatment and the philosophy of the Oriental system. It is an important book for anyone interested in how our bodies work, and in what the West has yet to learn from the East."; loosely inserted review & erratta slips; as-new copy in price-intact D/J.; including bibliography & index - 402 pages; A HEAVY BOOK WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL POSTAGE.
