The book is divided into five sections: 1) menstrual diseases, 2) abnormal vaginal discharge diseases, 3) gestational & birthing diseases, 4) postpartum diseases, and 5) miscellaneous diseases. Because Chinese gynecology in China means treatment via the internal administration of Chinese herbs, all the treatments in this book are herbal ones. If one wants to buy a single book covering all of Chinese gynecology in an introductory, survey fashion, this is the book to buy.

This handbook aims to showcase the latest research on medicine in China as it has developed over 3,000 years. It will identify themes concerned with both history and culture and the significance of Chinese medicine in the modern world, and invite established experts together with some of the most exciting and innovative younger researchers to respond. China will be understood as an 'open empire', receptive to all the in-coming influences of religion, materia medica and dietetica , and techniques that have shaped its healing traditions; and also exerting influence through the land, maritime, air and cyber networks that have connected it with other places. To avoid the pitfalls of representing Chinese medicine as a monolithic tradition, detailed attention will be paid to the social and cultural contexts within which a classical medicine emerged, as well as to the realities of everyday practice, to the extent that they can be known. The themes of the book will be traced historically through the healing traditions of Early China, medieval religious institutions, the transmission of knowledge and practice through ritual, writing and authority and the impact of the printing technologies of early modern China. The Ming period, in particular, provides a wealth of exquisitely illustrated medical works which demonstrate the eclectic healing environment. The Handbook will end with two sections on the significance of Chinese medicine in the modern world addressing issues of evidence and, most significantly, an analysis of the global impact of everyday Chinese attitudes to health. It will draw out the complex and paradoxical role of Chinese medicine in the construction of 'modern' Chinese nation as well as its adoption as a strategy of resistance to the perception of an all powerful biomedicine in the Euro-American sphere.

Each is a complete art, in and of itself, and has profoundly contributed to the health and well-being of millions of people around the world. Drawing on their shared roots and spiritual principles, Bridgette Shea, L.Ac., MAcOM, shows how these two practices integrate seamlessly, with the two traditions’ individual strengths harmonizing to form a practical basis for prevention, wellness, detoxification, and treatment. The author explains the foundational principles of both Chinese medicine and Ayurveda in detail, providing the reader with a working understanding of both disciplines. She examines shared concepts such as qi and prana, meridians and nadis, and energy centers and chakras. She explores the strengths of each practice, such as the clinical efficiency of diagnosis and the use of acupuncture for pain relief, improving fertility, and stress reduction in Chinese medicine and the dietary, detoxification, and spiritual guidance of Ayurveda, including the detox branch of Ayurveda known as Panchakarma. Moving beyond theory into practical application, she explores the Elements, known as the Five Phases and the Panchamahabhutas, and how they affect our well-being. She provides tools for self-assessment including a primer on tongue diagnosis and a mental, emotional, and physical constitutional questionnaire. Offering treatment and prevention strategies that draw from both disciplines, she encourages the reader to implement an integrated practice of these two systems in daily life or clinical practice.

This part-formulas text, part-clinical notebook approaches standard traditional Chinese herbal formulas in a unique and readily accessible format. With both the Chinese herbal medicine student and practicing clinician in mind, the Clinical Handbook concisely presents herbal formulas alphabetically with associated ingredients, dosages, source text quotations, specific preparation and decoction instructions, TCM anecdotes, and notes from master herbalists. In addition, all Shanghan lun and Jingui yaolue prescriptions are all paired with quotations from those texts along with fastidiously translated dosage information and preparation instructions penned by the hand of Zhang Zhongjing. The ultimate purpose of this text is to join the renaissance of classical herbalism in the US by empowering students and clinicians with the requisite tools for authentic and effective herbal prescription. This text somewhat disregards the typical TCM formula categories and, instead, simply lists herbal formulas alphabetically in a dense, yet highly readable, format. This book is the only one of it's kind in combining both clinical application with classical diligence and scholarship. As such, Clinical Handbook of Classical Chinese Herbalism is the perfect companion to the more comprehensive Bensky-Clavey-Stoger and Wiseman-Brand materia medicas. The Clinical Handbook was self-published by Green Tea Apothecary Press in Portland, OR (www.CookMyHerbs.com).
