Asthma has become an increasingly common disease, with serious side effects from drugs therapy. Consequently, the benefits of TCM in treating asthma are gaining attention in integrative medicine environments. This small volume, Acupuncture and Moxibustion for Asthma, discusses asthma from a TCM perspective as well as a biomedical one, and suggests ways of treating asthma according to both perspectives. The text includes preventative health care, clinical experiences and case studies, quotes from classical texts, and modern research.
