Accompanying vignettes and illustrations bring to life such diverse arenas of health care as childbirth in the Tang period, Yuan state-established medical schools, fertility control in the Qing, and the search for sexual potency in the People's Republic. The two final chapters illustrate Chinese healing modalities across the globe and address the challenges they have posed as alternatives to biomedical standards of training and licensure. The discussion includes such far-reaching examples as Chinese treatments for diphtheria in colonial Australia and malaria in Africa, the invention of ear acupuncture by the French and its worldwide dissemination, and the varying applications of acupuncture from Germany to Argentina and Iraq.

Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine: A Comprehensive Guide 1st by Giovanni Maciocia; Julian Scott (Foreword by)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 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

Huangdi Neijing: a synopsis with commentaries by Y. C. KongHuangdi Neijing is a classic medical text of ancient China. Composed of two sections, Suwen and Lingshu, the book is filled with enduring wisdom and insight and is still consulted by doctors today. This translation is based largely on Li Zhongzi's concise 1642 edition, titled Neijing Zhiyao, and continues the centuries-long effort to annotate the text, especially in light of modern developments in medicine. Instead of "explaining a classic with a classic," this edition adds commentaries and emendations that enhance the theoretical core of Huangdi Neijing, illuminating a seminal work of Chinese medicine that covers much more than the basic principles of yin-yang and the five elements.

Huang Di nei jing su wen : nature, knowledge, imagery in an ancient Chinese medical text, with an appendix, The doctrine of the five periods and six qi in the Huang Di nei jing su wen by Paul U. UnschuldThe Huang Di nei jing su wen, known familiarly as the Su wen, is a seminal text of ancient Chinese medicine, yet until now there has been no comprehensive, detailed analysis of its development and contents. At last Paul U. Unschuld offers entry into this still-vital artifact of China’s cultural and intellectual past. Unschuld traces the history of the Su wen to its origins in the final centuries B.C.E., when numerous authors wrote short medical essays to explain the foundations of human health and illness on the basis of the newly developed vessel theory. He examines the meaning of the title and the way the work has been received throughout Chinese medical history, both before and after the eleventh century when the text as it is known today emerged. Unschuld’s survey of the contents includes illuminating discussions of the yin-yang and five-agents doctrines, the perception of the human body and its organs, qi and blood, pathogenic agents, concepts of disease and diagnosis, and a variety of therapies, including the new technique of acupuncture. An extensive appendix, furthermore, offers a detailed introduction to the complicated climatological theories of Wu yun liu qi ("five periods and six qi"), which were added to the Su wen by Wang Bing in the Tang era. In an epilogue, Unschuld writes about the break with tradition and innovative style of thought represented by the Su wen. For the first time, health care took the form of "medicine," in that it focused on environmental conditions, climatic agents, and behavior as causal in the emergence of disease and on the importance of natural laws in explaining illness. Unschuld points out that much of what we surmise about the human organism is simply a projection, reflecting dominant values and social goals, and he constructs a hypothesis to explain the formation and acceptance of basic notions of health and disease in a given society. Reading the Su wen, he says, not only offers a better understanding of the roots of Chinese medicine as an integrated aspect of Chinese civilization; it also provides a much needed starting point for discussions of the differences and parallels between European and Chinese ways of dealing with illness and the risk of early death.

The Clinical Application of Shang Han Formulas by written by Chen Rui-chun ; translated by Zhang Yan, Wang Cheng-hui ; edited by Michael S. FitzGerald, Mei Li, Lara Deasy.The Shang Han Lun is widely regarded as one of the most important book in Chinese medicine, yet it is also considered the most difficult to master. With over 40 years of clinical experience, Dr. Chen Rui-chun elucidates key points about many of the formulae from the Shang Han Lun, bringing them out of the cloud of mystery and into the daylight of clinical practice. Presented simply, and accompanied by examples of clinical cases for each formula, students of the Shang Han Lun will see how Dr. Chen can take classical formulae beyond the scope of their traditional presentation and find new applications for their use. Divided into three sections, The Clinical Application of Shang Han Lun Formulae first presents case studies organized around the use of nearly 50 classical formulas, followed by other case studies from the author's extensive clinical experience. Finally, of great interest is the section containing the author's informal essays on diverse medical issues, such as the use of herbal wines, the connection of Spleen deficiency to the generation of wind, or whether San Ren Tang can be used to stop sweating. The Clinical Application of Shang Han Lun Formulae is a thoughtful and thought-provoking book, of great interest to clinicians and students alike, in the continuing struggle to constantly adapt our practice of Chinese medicine to a changing modern world.

Essentials of Chinese Medicine 2nd by Anshen Shi; Dafang ZengThe body of this book is divided into two parts. Part I consists of 47 common internal medical conditions (including addendums) presented according to the traditional medical practice of differentiation and treatment. Derived from the analysis of etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, patterns for the selected condition are differentiated and identified, and guidelines for treatment are provided. Part II presents 37 Western medical conditions for which TCM treatment has proven effective. The approach in Part II integrates Western medical diagnosis and TCM differentiation of the condition. Based on the analysis of the primary symptoms, the characteristics and progressions of the patterns are elaborated, and appropriate TCM treatment measures are suggested. Current TCM studies for each condition are also introduced in Part II. It is not by omission, but to prevent dissemination of misleading information, that those Western medical conditions with few or no proven TCM therapies are excluded from Part II. Some medical conditions for which both Western medicine and TCM share common concepts are referred to the corresponding chapters in Part I for a comprehensive discussion of the TCM perspective. The contents of Part II are designed to meet the great demand for Chinese medicine from a large population suffering from Western medical diseases, and to create a new path for academia while providing an opportunity for internal medicine in clinical actualization.

Grammar Choices for Graduate and Professional Writers by Nigel A. CaplanGrammar Choices is a guide to the choices available to academic writers in English. Although there are certainly some rules governing acceptable and unacceptable grammar, there are far more choices to be made among grammatically acceptable forms that have different meanings. The ability to control these meanings will help students communicate more effectively and efficiently in graduate-level and professional academic writing. Grammar Choices is a different kind of grammar book: It is written for graduate students, including MBA, master's, and doctoral candidates, as well as postdoctoral researchers and faculty. Additionally, it describes the language of advanced academic writing with more than 300 real examples from successful graduate students and from published texts, including corpora. Activities encourage students to investigate the language choices that are typical of their own academic disciplines or professional fields through structured reading and writing activities. Grammar Choices is cross-referenced with Academic Writing for Graduate Students, 3rd edition (Swales & Feak, 2012). Each of the eight units in Grammar Choices contains: an overview of the grammar topic; a preview test that allows students to assess their control of the target grammar and teachers to diagnose areas of difficulty; an authentic example of graduate-student writing showing the unit grammar in use; clear descriptions of essential grammar structures using the framework of functional grammar, cutting-edge research in applied linguistics, and corpus studies; vocabulary relevant to the grammar point is introduced--for example, common verbs in the passive voice, summary nouns used with this/these, and irregular plural nouns; authentic examples for every grammar point from corpora and published texts; exercises for every grammar point that help writers develop grammatical awareness and use, including completing sentences, writing, revising, paraphrasing, and editing; and a section inviting writers to investigate discipline-specific language use and apply it to an academic genre.

A Manual of Acupuncture 2nd by Peter Deadman & Mazin Al-Khafaji ; with Kevin Baker.Once in a great while an extraordinary book is published that sets an entirely new standard in its field. A Manual of Acupuncture, published by Journal of Chinese Medicine Publications, is just such a book. Painstakingly researched over many years by Peter Deadman, editor-in-chief of The Journal of Chinese Medicine, and colleagues Mazin Al-Khafaji and Kevin Baker, this book has become the primary reference in the West for the study of acupuncture points and channels. With the subtle use of color to illustrate the acupuncture points and anatomical features, the new second edition of A Manual of Acupuncture is even more attractive and user-friendly than the first. Introductory chapters describe and illustrate the channels and collaterals, the various categories of points, and methods of selection, location, and needling. Ensuing chapters present each of the points of the 14 channels as well as the extra (miscellaneous) points, identified by their English and pinyin names, and Chinese characters. Each point is located in accordance with the most exacting anatomical standards to be found in any Western textbook. For each point there is a dedicated drawing, followed by regional body drawings. The quality of the 500 drawings is far superior to those in any other TCM text. There are also practical pointers for finding and needling the points, and cautionary information about what to avoid. In addition to point indexes by their English and pinyin names, there is an index identifying every part of the body reached by each of the channels, and separate indexes of point indications listed according to both TCM and biomedical symptoms.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis Study Guide by Yi Qiao; Al StoneDiagnosis in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the process of examining the body to diagnose disease and differentiate patterns under the guidance of the fundamental theories of TCM. It is a bridge that connects the basics of TCM with all branches of clinical medicine and includes inspecting the symptoms or manifestations, analyzing the changes, understanding the pathomechanisms, and predicting the transformation of diseases. TCM diagnosis consists of two major areas of study, examination and testing (zhên) and decision and judgment (duàn). Examination and testing techniques are used to collect information from the patient. Decision and judgment uses this information, which is sorted, analyzed, synthe¬sized, and reasoned on the basis of TCM theory. This book is organized around the four pillars of TCM diagnosis: inspection, inquiry, listening and smelling, and palpation. In this text, each aspect is explained in a clear and systematic manner, with generous use of tables and illustrations. This is followed by a series of review questions for deeper understanding. A comprehensive self-examination consisting of 200 multiple choice questions, with a separate key to the answers, tests the reader s understanding of the important points of each aspect of diagnosis. These questions, many of which are presented in case study format, will help students prepare for the board exams.
