Offering a systematic comparative approach to Western and Eastern medicine, this textbook enables students and practitioners of Chinese medicine to develop a core understanding of conventional medical language, diagnoses, symptoms and treatments.

Now in its second edition, the book uses examples drawn from the authors experience to encourage reflection on how conventional diagnoses can be interpreted from a more holistic medical perspective. It includes introductory sections on physiology, pathology and pharmacology, chapters devoted to the physiological systems of the body and the conventional treatments of diseases that can affect them, together with information on the recognition of Red Flag conditions and dealing with patients in clinical practice.

Accompanying online material, including self-testing Q&A’s and checklists for revision, is available for those wishing to use the text for systematic study.
