An essential reference for the Traditional Chinese Medicine classroom and clinic, this book teaches how to use and understand Western laboratory testing in the treatment and referral of patients.
Co-written by a doctor of Western medicine and an acupuncture physician, the book focuses on symptoms that commonly present in TCM practice and offers example lab results and case studies throughout. By teaching TCM practitioners the terminology and methodology of lab testing, the book helps to bridge the gab between Eastern and Western schools of medicine and promote an integrative approach to improve the overall care of the patient.
