Stroke and Parkinson's disease are both frequently seen in the neurology department. These conditions affect a great number of individuals around the world, most commonly appearing in the elderly.
In recent decades, the fatality rates associated with stroke have been brought within control, but the issues of recurrence and morbidity have yet to be resolved. For rescue and treatment during the acute stage, Chinese medicine applies a strategy of regulation while both strengthening physical resistance and eliminating pathogens, or methods may be also applied that simultaneously tonify and free the vessels, depending upon specific pattern differentiation. both clinical experience and experimental research demonstrate that Chinese medicine offers superior therapeutic results when combined with standard rehabilitation methods.
Although present pharmaceutical approaches to treatment achieve certain therapeutic effect, many side effects usually result. Furthermore, these approaches fail to prevent progression. Systematic literature review shows that the application of Chinese medicine results in a definite therapeutic effect with very few side effects.
This book introduces Western healthcare practitioners to Chinese medical theory of diagnosis and treatment of discreet disease entities and offer specific therapeutic treatment methods not found in current Western TCM texts. The book has many valuable, unique features. The information is presented beautifully. It is appropriate for professional students and practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The authors feel it is also valuable to biomedical physicians, but the TCM information presented in this series is technical and of limited use to those lacking a strong TCM theoretical background.
