 Li Dong-Yuan’s Treatise on the Spleen & Stomach: A (View larger image)

An all new, completely annotated translation of Li Dong-yuan's Treatise on the Spleen & Stomach by Bob Flaws This is the book that elevated the spleen and stomach to pivotal importance in the theory and practice of traditional Chinese medicine. However, it also introduced the concept of yin fire, perhaps the most important concept in understanding complicated internal diseases and their systemic ramifications. Li’s formulas are treasure troves for those dealing with autoimmune and immune deficiency diseases. This book will help clinicians solve many thorny problems in practice. Significant attributes of Li Dong-yuan's Treatise: >It is the key to understanding & treating the complex, multi-pattern conditions prevalent in developed countries >It is now available in an improved English translation with commentary by Bob Flaws; relevant clinical trials & case histories have been added to each chapter >According to Ye Tian-shi, 'For internal damage [as opposed to externally contracted diseases], one must choose the methods of [Li] Dong-yuan.' >It is the source for yin fire theory, and explains complex, modern disease processes seen in the clinic. With so much new research in China on the ideas and formulas of Li Dong-yuan, this book is one of the most important pre-modern texts in Chinese medicine for 21st century clinicians. Flaws has undertaken the task of a fresh translation of this book, this time including detailed annotation, relevant case histories and random clinical trial reports for each chapter.
