This book covers, in clear and comprehensive detail a description of Blood stasis in Traditional Chinese Medicine, covering the background knowledge, causes and diagnosis from the viewpoint of Chinese and conventional medicine. This is then clarified by means of case studies. Many Western diseases including diabetes, gynaecological disorders, stroke, tumours and myocardial infarction, 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 acupuncture and herbal medicine prescriptions, are provided in all categories along with the classification of treatment principles.
