Compendium of Chinese Medical Menstrual Diseases

Compendium of Chinese Medical Menstrual Diseases

Bob Flaws

This new, revised, updated and expanded edition of our previous book A Handbook of Menstrual Diseases in Chinese Medicine is both a textbook for use by students and a comprehensive clinical manual for practitioners treating women with any type of menstrual disease. Since women typically make up 65% or more of the average practitioner's practice of Chinese medicine in the West, a thorough understanding of the Chinese medical treatment of these diseases can be an important key to clinical success.
