We at Blue Poppy Press feel really good about this series of books. When it is complete, it will be the largest, most complete English language Chinese internal medicine (nei ke) text in the world. It will be far more complete than any other book available in any Western language. Even by Chinese standards, it is a monumental effort. In addition, because it is arranged by traditional Chinese disease categories, one can use the information in this book to treat an unlimited number of modern Western diseases. This is because modern Western diseases are nothing other than some combination of one or more traditional Chinese diseases. If one knows how to treat those Chinese diseases, then one immediately knows how to treat the modern Western disease no matter how many syllables its Greek or Latin name.About the Author:
