Since the initial publication of this book, the most complete clinical manual on the Chinese medical treatment of modern Western diseases, it has become far and away the best selling title that we publish. Now this new second edition has been expanded, updated, and improved. The new edition covers 79 common Western diseases, seven more than the previous book.
For each disease the book covers both acupuncture and Chinese medicine protocols for treatment as well as a comprehensive review of Western medicine. In addition, all the herb listings have been reformatted as easy-to-read lists instead of paragraphs. The herbs are now listed with pin-yin first and Latin nomenclature second. Finally, all herbal listings have been updated to correspond to changes in the latest edition of Chinese Herbal Medicine: Materia Medica by Bensky, Clavey, and Stoger. New diseases covered: Stills Disease Ankylosing Spondylitis Fanconis Syndrome Dengue Fever Costochondritis Psoriatic Arthritis Rombergs Syndrome.
