AUTHOR

Omura, Yoshiaki

SUMMARY

Many ills that conventional Western medication fails to prevent and cure--migraine, diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and allergies, to name a few--are in some cases relieved through the remarkable effects of acupuncture. This comprehensive history presents a complete and coherent guide to the widely acclaimed and employed Oriental practice. The author readily acknowledges the superiority of Western medicine in certain situations (particularly in cases of infectious disease); his contention is that every physician should have the knowledge and advantage of Oriental medicine and acupuncture in addition to the benefits of Western medicine. The combined techniques offer enormous potential not only for alleviating suffering and possibly even saving lives, but also for reducing common medical expenses. Starting with historical background, including the origins and meanings of concepts essential to the practice of acupuncture, the text proceeds to a discussion of the anatomical and pathophysiological concepts of Oriental medicine, concluding with a detailed review of diagnostic methods. A wide audience awaits this practical guide, including lay practitioners as well as healthcare professionals. Unabridged reprint of the edition published by Japan Publications, Inc., Tokyo, 1982. Appendix. Index. 114 black-and-white illustrations.Omura, Yoshiaki is the author of 'Acupuncture Medicine Its Historical and Clinical Background' with ISBN 9780486428505 and ISBN 0486428508.
