 Handbook of Obstetrics & Gynecology in Chinese Med (View larger image)

Traditional Chinese Medicine has long been used in treating a wide variety of women’s diseases. As we enter the twenty first century, more and more of the time-tested methods of traditional Chinese medicine are being used in conjunction with the concepts and technologies of modern biomedicine. This cross-fertilisation is leading to improved understanding and more effective treatment. Nowhere is this interaction more significant than in the realm of obstetrics and gynecology. Over the past 40 years, Yu Jin, M.D., has been a pioneer in this endeavour working at all levels to integrate traditional Chinese medicine with biomedicine: in the clinic, in the research laboratory, and in the classroom. This knowledge and experience is distilled in this handbook.The book covers all the important disorders specific to women. A book based on traditional concepts, it begins with a discussion of methodology, following with a chapter on self-care. After discussing common diseases of the vulva, Dr. Yu elaborates on how to use a combination of traditional and biomedical approaches to treat various inflammatory conditions of the pelvis. She then turns to a discussion of menstrual disorders, complications of pregnancy, and postpartum disorders. The concluding chapters review a selection of miscellaneous conditions such as incontinence, prolapse, fibrocystic breast disease, and endometriosis. While primarily concerned with herbal medicine, Dr. Yu includes acupuncture treatment. Handbook of Obstetrics & Gynecology in Chinese Medicine: An Integrated Approach will prove to be an invaluable bedside companion for any practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine who treats women.
