View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Originally written in English, this book gives an academic introduction to the basic theory and practice of traditional Chinese internal medicine. It is intended for overseas medical practitioners as well as those who are interested in traditional Chinese medicine, and uses modern research to explain traditional Chinese medicine's approach to diagnosis and treatment in internal medicine.

The book's general introduction stresses the basic ideas of internal medicine in traditional Chinese medicine, general principles for making diagnoses and administering treatments as well as diagnostic rules commonly used in internal medicine. Basic ideas covered include yin and yang, zang and fu organs and pathogeny and pathology. The authors put these ideas into the contexts of both classical definitions and modern scientific research.

Subsequent chapters individually deal with common diseases and their pathogeny and pathology, differentiation and treatment as well as the modern research conducted on the efficacy of various treatments. These treatments include herbal prescriptions and other effective methods, such as acupuncture and moxibustion, with priority given to the highly effective, ready-made ones. Diseases treated in these chapters include: cold, bronchitis, bronchial asthma, congestive heart failure, shock, myocarditis, coronary heart disease, arrhythmia, hypertension, peptic ulcer, chronic gastritis, chronic colitis, viral hepatitis, cholecystitis, cholelithiasis, pancreatitis, aplastic anemia, leukemia, thrombocytopenic purpura, thyroidism, diabetes mellitus, and tumour.

The appendix includes a brief introduction to commonly used traditional prescriptions.

About the Author:

Born in Ningbo in China's Zhejiang Province, in 1924, Professor Xie Zhufan is a 1946 graduate of the Beijing University Medical College. In 1956 he completed the first ever special training course for teachers in acupuncture held by the Ministry of Public Health. For more than forty years he has been working in the First Teaching Hospital of the Beijing Medical University (formerly the Beijing Medical College), and since the 1950s has been engaged in clinical and experimental studies on the integration of traditional Chinese medicine with Western medicine, concentrating for the most part on internal medicine. He has practised and taught both modem Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine and has conducted several training courses on traditional Chinese medicine both at home and abroad. A three-time appointee as WHO consultant on traditional medicine in 1985, 1986 and 1990, he has worked in the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific. Owing to his particular professional experience, he knows well the difficulties that most Occidentals encounter when they are learning traditional Chinese medicine. He has published a great variety of scientific papers and books, among which his Dictionary of Traditional Medicine has been most particularly well received by his readers. At present he holds the following professional positions: Professor of Medicine, Director of the Institute for the Integration of Traditional and Modem Medicine, Beijing Medical University; Chairman of the Committee of International Academic Exchange, Chinese Association for the Integration of Traditional and Western Medicine; and Vice-Chairman, Beijing Association for the Integration of Traditional and Western Medicine.

For more than thirty years he has been engaged in practice, teaching and research related to the integration of traditional Chinese and Western medicine. His research has been focussed on clinical and pharmacological studies on the prevention and treatment of coronary heart disease using modern scientific methodology to build on the basis of the traditional theory of correlation between qi and blood He has published more than 90 academic papers, and has nine times been awarded prizes for his scientific achievements. His present posts are Professor of Internal Medicine, Beijing College of Traditional Chinese Medicine; Vice-Chairman, Chinese Association for the Integration of Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine; Member of the Appraisal Group on the Integration of Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine, Committee of Academic Degrees, the State Council of the People's Republic of China; Deputy Editor-in-Chief, The Pharmacological and Clinical Journal of Chinese Medicine; and Member of the Editorial Board of The Chinese Journal of Integrated Traditional and Western Medicine.
