Présentation de l'éditeur

The 2nd edition of The Practice of Chinese Medicine: The Treatment of Diseases with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs describes the application of traditional Chinese medical theory to the diagnosis and treatment of 48 diseases, conditions and disorders. In addition to the existing 34 covered in the first edition, 14 new conditions and symptoms have been added, and these include common, chronic, and acute conditions which clinicians may see in their practice. Each chapter contains aetiology and pathology; differential diagnosis according to TCM; selection of treatments with acupuncture and herbs, with explanation of choices; case studies for illustration; summary of Western differential diagnosis; and discussion of prognosis and prevention. This book brings the enormous wealth of the author's experience, and his insights in applying TCM medicine to a Western context, to the support of all clinicians whatever their own range of experiences.

He is Visiting Associate Professor at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has many years of experience in teaching and practice. Giovanni trained initially in the UK and then in China, learned Chinese to be able to study from original Chinese texts, and was one of the first practitioners and authors to introduce Chinese medicine in a clear and accessible way to a Western student audience.

A Mixed Bag 24 janvier 2003
Par Brian B. Carter - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is huge, even though it's only about 34 diseases. It's filled with case studies that easily transform into CA state board test questions.

My study partner went through and pulled every one of these case studies out to memorize them. I found myself doing the same, since I disagreed with Giovanni's diagnosis about 25% of the time... I had to memorize his diagnosis anyway. In one case, he got no result, and consulted with a Chinese doctor, who diagnosed the patient the way I had when I firsted saw the signs and symptoms!

What's really infuriating is when he uses a rationale to diagnose something one way in one place, but then doesn't consistently apply that in other cases.

So, we are required to know Giovanni's opinions and diagnosis style even if they may be wrong. It would have been nice to see - in a reference book - a separation between mistaken treatments and ideal/accurate treatments.

Also, there are short sections on western diagnosis in some diseases... but be careful, because biomedicine frequently revises its understandings. This is NOT your source for clinical biomedical info. It may be easy to understand, but may not be up to date or accurate.

There is an interesting section on distal points and their target areas.

As with Giovanni's book, the Foundations of Chinese Medicine, it's not always clear if his ideas come from classical CM or from his own mind. I'd caution the reader to balance their understanding with the works of Wiseman, Deadman, and Sionneau.

OK ... but not the colour on the cover ... 12 décembre 2005
Par D. Lloyd - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I initially dove into this book, very well laid out and attractive but don't be deceived it's not the be all of diagnosis despite it's mammoth number of pages. As far as I've been trained, he's about 70% of the full story ... definately a wonderful introduction to TCM's internal medicine but not everything you need to know. His appendix pages on western differentiation are very welcomed, but are quite basic. Many people in TCM are not so interested in Western meds. but they are very important so thumbs up on the inclusion.

It's not a bad book, but it's not so great as the Chinese texts I have in my library who give you the same info at a fraction of the cost, less room on your shelf and a lot less speculation.

Thanks to Maciocia we have a solid intro to TCM, for that I think we are all indebted ... but his factory of TCM books are a bit much considering you can get the real info from the source in Chinese Textbooks with both Chinese and English in them.

Great study and reference book. 23 janvier 1999

Format: Relié
This book blends, technically yet accesibly, Oriental and Western Medicine. Clear and to the point, it comprises abundant case studies to illustrate the diseases and treatments presented. It is a must for anyone incorporating Oriental Medicine/Western Medicine in their practice.

Good Book but terrible printing and editing 25 février 2014

It is very difficult to give a star to a good book that you can't find something because there is no contents table.
Amazing in Kindle format 24 juin 2014

This is my second purchase of this amazing book. This is the second edition of this book. Giovanni has added much to it. My one regret over the first edition is the change/elimination of the appendix on coupled balanced point use. He says in the foreword that the information is in the body of the chapters on individual diseases, but it's not so easy to find. I still refer to the first edition appendix for insight into balanced/coupled points.

This book is incredible for insight into diagnosing and treatment of Western Medical Conditions with clear translations to their Chinese Medicine interpretations. With this book as reference, there's no one or any medical condition with an intact suffering human that you can't help (see your local ER for when a broken fibula has ruptured the skin, for example).

The second edition, with all its additions, I found unwieldy due to the weight. I would avoid referring to it when I knew I should. the new kindle edition is brilliant in the extreme. The book now weighs what my kindle weighs. I can access the book from any device (office computer, for example). Not all his books are yet in the kindle format, but I'll rebuy (yes, I have them all, and all editions) when/as they become available.
