COMPLEMENTARY THERAPIST'S GUIDE TO CONVENTIONA Clare Stephenson
For students and practitioners of complementary medicine, this book offers a unique systematic comparison between Western and Eastern medicine. By understanding conventional medical language and philosophy, says Clare Stephenson, you are better prepared to work alongside conventional methods, seeing that they are not necessarily contradictory to holistic interpretations. While learning about physiology, pathology, pharmacology, symptoms and treatments, you are encouraged to consider the corresponding Chinese medical perspective. There is focus on the warning signs of serious disease, on supporting patients on medication, and on ethical issues. The accompanying CD provides exercises that transform the book from reference into a study course in clinical medicine for students of complementary medicine. In addition to the self-testing questions and answers, the supporting CD also contains checklists for revision and full-colour illustrations.
