TCM Case Studies: Autoimmune Disease
In this volume of the International Standard Library of Chinese Medicine series, the authors of TCM Case Studies: Autoimmune Disease discuss the etiology and physiology of nine different autoimmune diseases, citing two to four cases in each study, with detailed analysis of herbal prescriptions used for each case.
Common autoimmune diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Sjögren’s syndrome, scleroderma, vasculitis, thrombocytopenic purpura, Graves’ disease, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis, and other diseases.
Commentary and discussion, provided by the Western co-author, serve to compare, corroborate, and contrast the various approaches to diagnosis and treatment. Students of Chinese medicine will find the study questions and answers at the end of each case study to be useful aids for exam preparation and continuing study.
