This book covers in clear and comprehensive detail the area of fluid physiology, metabolism and disorders in Traditional Chinese Medicine, drawing on a huge range of original Chinese material. Disorders of sweating and urination, the formation of thin mucus, damp and phlegm, and the interaction of these with other pathological factors are discussed, and the classical sources quoted. Differentiations and treatments, both Classical and modern, including both herbs and acupuncture, are provided in all categories, with case histories where appropriate and interesting. The new edition includes a new chapter on acupuncture, new illustrations, a full index, and revisions throughout.
