Titel:Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine A Comprehensive Guide
Autor:Maciocia Giovanni
Preis:Euro 127.99

This major, new book is a complete, easily accessed and highly illustrated guide to diagnosis in Chinese Medicine. Emphasis is placed on real world issues and symptoms, and the text focuses on clear interpretations of signs and symptoms - the practice beyond the theory.
Since Chinese medicine diagnosis relies on a subjective appraisal of the patients symptoms and signs - which form a pattern - many factors beyond traditional Western symptoms are taken into consideration e.g. a patients voice, the absence of thirst, feeling hot or cold, the patients smell, tone of voice, glitter of eyes. Thus, Chinese diagnosis is based on a subtle appraisal of a patients disharmony, which may not be a disease at all, and as such requires careful interpretation of a range of nuances. This book will help lead students and practitioners through basic on to sophisticated levels of diagnostic interpretation.

This book is indispensable both for students and for practitioners of all levels.

In his usual style combining clarity, precision and experience, Giovanni Maciocia has filled an important gap in the TCM literature. This precise, clear, academic and detailed textbook on Chinese Diagnosis is an indispensable tool both for practitioners and students.

Giovanni Maciocia has consistently provided the West with precise knowledge and profound clarity concerning Eastern medicine. This new work continues his unique scholar-practitioner tradition of teaching and writing that simultaneously supplies immediately practical information with direct clinical application with theoretical insight and wisdom that makes one consider and ponder and see the Eastern tradition from new perspectives. This is an invaluable addition to what can only be described as the ongoing Maciocia transmission.
Ted Kaptchuk, OMD

Maciocias new book on diagnosis brilliantly fills a gap in the existing literature. It appears encyclopedic yet is surprisingly useful in daily practice. While it is solidly based on Chinese medicine, this book guides the reader in applying the principles of traditional diagnosis to present-day western patients. Physician acupuncturists will especially appreciate the books easy access to discover the significance of symptoms and signs they encounter in their practices. Its a remarkably good book.
Joseph M. Helms, M.D.
