This major, new book is a complete, easily accessed and highly illustrated guide to diagnosis in Chinese Medicine.Emphasis is placed on real world issues and symptoms, and the text focuses on clear interpretations of signs and symptoms – the practice beyond the theory.
Since Chinese medicine diagnosis relies on a subjective appraisal of the patient’s symptoms and signs – which form a pattern – many factors beyond traditional Western symptoms are taken into consideration e.g. a patient’s voice, the absence of thirst, feeling hot or cold, the patient’s smell, tone of voice, glitter of eyes.Thus, Chinese diagnosis is based on a subtle appraisal of a patient’s disharmony, which may not be a disease at all, and as such requires careful interpretation of a range of nuances.
This book will help lead students and practitioners through basic on to sophisticated levels of diagnostic interpretation. This edition of 2003 is a special offer for a reduced price.
