Praise for Fundamentals of Chinese Fingernail Image Diagnosis (FID)
“Since the 1950’s, New China has actively encouraged the integration of the Chinese healing traditions with the conventional medical system. This book is a testament to how ancient folk traditions were modernized over the last 60 years, in order to become much easier to incorporate in the contemporary clinic. Fundamentals of Chinese Fingernail Image Diagnosis is an outstanding book for serious integrative TCM practitioners and modern alternative healers.”
-Ioannis Solos, Chinese medicine practitioner, researcher, and author of Gold Mirrors and Tongue Reflections: The Cornerstone Classics of Chinese Medicine Tongue Diagnosis.
“This is the first book in English that describes Chinese Fingernail Image Diagnosis (FID) systematically and comprehensively[…] This book, by all measure, is valuable in improving diagnostic skills for those who are practicing acupuncture and Chinese/Oriental medicine.”
