Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Women's Health: Bridging the Gap Between Western and Eastern Medicine
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Women's Health:
Educates readers about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), ( acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine), and how women's health problems are effectively treated holistically versus the typical Western, compartmentalized approach. Acquire a basic understanding of TCM - what it is and how it works - as well as its benefits, risks and potential for treatment. Potential benefits of using TCM decrease the discouragement and futility felt by many women who cope with chronic health problems like menstrual irregularities, infertility, insomnia, pregnancy related issues and menopause. Women do not usually consider TCM as a treatment alternative until after receiving failed Western treatment. TCM can be a primary part of health care. Information and knowledge about TCm is lacking. TCM can help many women overcome and resolve health concerns. TCM's potential for early detection, strengthening of the immune system, reversal of symptoms and prevention of disease unfortunately remains unnoticed. * Broadens understanding of how TCM and western medicine differ in diagnosis and treatment. A holistic versus compartmentalized approach. * Explains how acupuncture systems work in easy-to-understand language. * Outlines gynecological, reproductive, and menopausal disorders more naturally and completely....

An Exposition on the Eight Extraordinary Vessels: Acupuncture, Alchemy, and Herbal Medicine
An Exposition on the Eight Extraordinary Vessels: Acupuncture,
Li Shi-Zhen s Exposition on the Eight Extraordinary Vessels (Qi jing ba mai kao) is among the most remarkable texts in the Chinese medical literature. Bringing together writings on acupuncture, herbal medicine, and internal cultivation (nei dan), it argues that aspiring adepts and physicians alike must understand the full scope of the extraordinary vessels if they hope to achieve their respective goals. Although the Exposition is a cornerstone of the extraordinary vessel literature, it is rarely, if ever, considered on its own terms. Li s approach to extraordinary vessel acupuncture and herbal medicine reflects a perspective that differs considerably from the strategies familiar to most modern readers. His work on the extraordinary vessels is every bit as innovative in its own milieu as his other seminal writings, Pulse Studies of the Lakeside [Recluse] (Bin-Hu mai xue) and Comprehensive Outline of the Materia Medica (Ben cao gang mu), are in theirs. This volume is the first translation of the Exposition published in English, and it is among the most comprehensive discussions of the text available in any language. It is divided into five parts. Part I provides an introductory overview of the main themes running throughout the text: theory, acupuncture, herbal medicine, internal...
