Fluid Physiology and Pathology in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Fluid disorders play a role in nearly every patient's presentation and can sometimes be the key to understanding an uncertain or difficult case. This unique resource clearly and comprehensively describes the Traditional Chinese Medicine view of the physiology and pathology of fluids within the body. Covers disorders of sweating and urination, edema, abnormal lacrimation, thin mucus syndrome, and conditions of excessive phlegm and dampness in the body, such as asthma, digestive problems, arthritis, epilepsy, and convulsions. Features over 20 new case histories and essays that illustrate the Traditional Chinese Medicine approach to the treatment of fluid disorders using Chinese herbs, acupuncture, and more.
