Clinical Handbook of Internal Medicine, Vol. 1 Product information Maclean, W./Lyttleton, J.

This is the first volume of a 3-volume TCM clinical formulary. It covers lung, kidney, liver and heart patterns. Within each organ pattern section, pathologies are organized by established TCM patterns within biomedical categories. Historically established patterns from the Shang Han Lun and Wen Bing are included in the lung section. These sections are supplemented by appendices listing original unmodified formulas, processing methods, delivery methods, contraindications for pregnancy, incompatible and antagonistic combinations, toxic substances, and medicinals derived from endangered species and animals. The 40-page index lists biomedical diseases and symptoms. TCM patterns are listed according to the same biomedical categories by which the book is organized. Formulas and medicinals are listed in both Pinyin and English with the main reference noted in bold. This work is arranged to provide easy access to the clinical information needed to treat a patient. Each of the patterns is detailed as to pathophysiology, clinical features (symptoms, pulse and tongue), treatment principle, prescription, modifications, patent medicines, applicable acupuncture points and clinical notes.

began her studies in science in New Zealand and then London with doctoral studies in genetics before succumbing to the siren song of Chinese medicine. She is the author of Treatment of Infertility with Chinese Medicine (Elsevier) and is in great demand world wide as a lecturer. She has always had a keen interest in the way Chinese medicine can be applied to gynecological disorders in a modern western context, and has run Chinese medicine clinics in women´s health centres and medical centres since the early 1980s. In addition to her own busy practice she has established a number of clinics which work closely with IVF clinics and the University of Western Sydney, and which are providing the platform for data collection and clinical research.
