Trade paperback book
This is the first volume in the seven volume series titled The Treatment of Disease in TCM authored by Philippe Sionneau and Lu Gang. In this volume, Sionneau and Lu discuss the TCM disease causes and mechanisms, pattern discrimination, treatment principles, formulas and their modifications, and acupuncture and moxibustion for a wide variety of Diseases of the Head & Face Including Mental/Emotional Disorders. Not only are many of the problems (such as shaking of the head, cold head, soot-black facial complexion, and numbness of the scalp) not discussed in the current English language TCM literature, but under each disease category, the authors give the most complete pattern discrimination available in English, including not only the most obvious textbook patterns but also lesser known patterns which real-life patients nonetheless manifest. Thus this series of books is a rich mine of clinical information and effective treatments for a wide variety of diseases and their patterns.
