Synopsis: Easily accessible and heavily illustrated, this complete guide to diagnosis in Chinese Medicine places an emphasis on "real world" issues. Focusing on clear interpretations of signs and symptoms, it addresses the practice beyond the theory and leads readers through both basic and sophisticated levels of diagnostic interpretation. Since Chinese medicine diagnosis relies on a subtle appraisal of a patient's disharmony, many factors beyond traditional Western symptoms are considered, including a patient's voice, the absence of thirst, feeling hot or cold, the patient's smell, tone of voice, and glitter of eyes. This practical resource helps readers carefully interpret of a range of nuances.

  • Provides a clinical understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine
  • Offers an unparalleled depth of information that is meticulously cross-referenced
  • Includes all the signs and symptoms, however subtle, that a modern patient may present in the clinic
  • Provides clinical experience and understanding from a leader in the field of Chinese medicine
  • Clearly outlines the decision-making options in key situations to help readers through the most challenging topics
  • Logically organized so readers can quickly find the information they need in clinical situations
