Supplemental information on Chinese dietetics

"Concise and very clear text, which makes it accessible to students and practitioners. Each section includes main acupuncture points that are recommended for the condition, additional points that may be useful and a reference to nutritional recommendations covered later in the book. Concepts are clearly outlined, the tables are easy to understand and the author makes correlations between Chinese and Western medicine which can assist the Western student with an understanding of Chinese concepts. Because of its clear layout and compound format it is easy to use for a quick reference without having to navigate a complex text. A short section on the practice of qi gong... should be useful for a practitioner not familiar with qi gong practice... it contains a solid amount of Western medical information, which should be of interest to a TCM-trained acupuncturist." --The Lantern: A Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine<br><br>"This is a good basic text..Traditional Chinese therapeutics are well explained and there are many useful tables outlining clinical observations and associations used in clinical acupuncture. It is easy to read, well set out and all chapters have appropriate diagrams."--Complementary Medicine<br><br>"As Western medical science approaches TCM by virtue of its effectiveness, this book offers a level-headed bridge that opens our wonderful theory of TCM to more people."
