Book description
The wisdom of 4,000 years of traditional Chinese medicine, with its accompanying philosophies, continues to gain popularity in Western culture even with many Western medical practitioners. In this book, Dr. Lu familiarizes us with the thirteen syndromes identified in Chinese medicine but incorporates more familiar Western medical terminology. The result is a handbook that straddles both traditions. Dr. Lu provides treatments for everything from bronchitis, cirrhosis, and chronic hepatitis to hypertension, osteoporosis, and sciatica-conditions that plague us and are often untreatable with conventional Western medical techniques. In addition to providing help for chronic ailments, Dr. Lu offers treatments for problems that affect men or women specifically, with sections on diseases of the prostate gland and impotence, pre- and postnatal care, and PMS and menopause. Also included are guidelines and specific instructions for using exercises, herbal cures, acupuncture, and food cures that are not as drastic or invasive as Western medicine, yet can Be very effective while producing very few side effects. Many of the techniques not only rejuvenate the body and sustain it when it has undergone long-term stress but also help maintain lifelong good health through the balancing of the body's complex systems. Both preventative and curative, "Traditional Chinese Medicine" provides an alternative method for achieving and maintaining good health.
