“The author clearly recognizes that only a combination of Eastern and Western medicines can truly be effective in treating this disorder. To that end, they have also included the lates research correlating a variety of physiological and biochemical parameters with the TCM patterns of DM. With doctoral studies about to be launched at TCM schools in the U.S., this book sets a new standard for an integrative approach to holistic medicine.
