Handbook Of Traditional Chinese Medicine Pediatrics 2nd Ed

Bob Flaws

This text is the fruit of extensive research into the Chinese medical literature on pediatrics and the response to years of practitioner requests for a good, comprehensive TCM pediatric textbook. It covers over 45 common pediatric complains, giving differential diagnosis, disease mechanisms, herbal treatment, acumoxa therapy where appropriate, and Bob's comments about each one. These diseases are presented in the chronological order that they usually appear & include everything from colic and cradle cap to mumps and pediatric hyperactivity. There are also special sections on pediatric diagnosis and treating young children with Chinese herbal medicines, immunizations, and dietary therapy.
