This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Gynaecology Revisited, written for practitioners and advanced students of Chinese medicine, responds to the need for the modern practitioner of Chinese medicine to understand contemporary Western approaches to gynaecology and obstetrics. The book describes disorders in gynaecology and obstetrics according to traditional Chinese medicine, by presenting the main patterns and pathomechanism with a guiding formula for each. The formulae contain essential modifications for each disorder and variable modifications for individual clients. The book also co-describes and explains the contemporary view of each disorder so that practitioners are able to refine treatment protocols and understand what the contemporary treatment options are.
