9780443054587: Obstetrics & Gynecology in Chinese Medicine, 1e

Written by Giovanni Maciocia, probably the most respected Western TCM practitioner and author of TCM texts, this is the most comprehensive test of its kind in the English language. It covers the principles of diseases related to obstetrics and gynecology in TCM and offers a full, clear and detailed exploration of this area. The text adapts Traditional Chinese gynecology to Western conditions and patients, reflected in over 100 case histories.

About the Author:

Giovanni Maciocia is one of the most highly-regarded and respected authors and lecturers in the West. He is Visiting Associate Professor at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has many years of experience in teaching and practice. Giovanni trained initially in the UK and then in China, learned Chinese to be able to study from original Chinese texts, and was one of the first practitioners and authors to introduce Chinese medicine in a clear and accessible way to a Western student audience.

Giovanni Maciocia has written other best-selling books under the Elsevier Churchill Livingstone imprint - The Practice of Chinese Medicine: The Treatment of Diseases with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs, 2e (ISBN 978-0443074905), Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine: A Comprehensive Guide, 1e (ISBN 9780443064487), The Channels of Acupuncture: Clinical Use of the Secondary Channels and Eight Extraordinary Vessels, 1e (ISBN 9780443074912), The Psyche in Chinese Medicine: Treatment of Emotional and Mental Disharmonies with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs, 1e (ISBN 9780702029882), and Obstetrics and Gynecology in Chinese Medicine, 2e (ISBN 9780443104220).

Review:

"This book provides an interesting counterpoint for obstetricians and gynaecologists practicing western medicine, as the explanations, treatments and management are so different...Dr Maciocia is able to compare the up-to-date Western scientific treatment and pathophysiology of the conditions with the TCM perspective...it is hard to imagine a more diverse, comprehensive or better text-book for those practicing TCM who are spcialising in woman's health, or for obstetricians and gynaecologists with an interest in TCM."
