About this book
The modern medical model is gradually shifting from one of biomedicine to one that integrates practices from the physiological, psychological, sociological and medical fields. This growing recognition that people, the environment, ecological conditions and society are all aspects of a united whole has given rise to an emergence of alternative medicine and therapies, many of which are borrowed from traditional Chinese medicine.
Volume One systematically introduces the basic theories and the diagnostic methods of Chinese Medicine, providing a concise presentation that is suitable for both teaching and self-study. Use of illustrations throughout also reinforce the theories and facts demonstrated in this valuable resource on the fundamental principles of Chinese Medicine.
