Product Description

Review

"This book provides an interesting counterpoint for obstetricians and gynaecologists practicing western medicine, as the explanations, treatments and management are so different...Dr Maciocia is able to compare the up-to-date Western scientific treatment and pathophysiology of the conditions with the TCM perspective...it is hard to imagine a more diverse, comprehensive or better text-book for those practicing TCM who are spcialising in woman's health, or for obstetricians and gynaecologists with an interest in TCM."

Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, May 2012

an exceptional work 27 Jun. 2013
By David A Dawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a astounding compendium of medical wisdom. At nearly 1000 pages of text, even before you get to the appendices and index, it is a monumental undertaking. It is very well designed - from introductory chapters about Women's Physiology and Pathology (nearly 70 pages in total), to the chapters about individual conditions and their diagnosis and treatment - the material is broken into manageable sections, historical information is given, diagnostic principles and treatment suggestions are explained, and case histories are given. Even if I'm not looking for information about a specific condition, it's a good read, as the clarity of its writing and the depth of explanations have an impact on my own approach to the medicine.
One of the distinctive features of this book is that not only are individual etiologies presented (e.g. PCOS due to Dampness or Damp-Heat), but the author also includes combined patterns and discusses their characteristics and treatment strategies (e.g. PCOS due to Damp-Phlegm, Kidney-Yang deficiency and Blood Stasis). This alone puts this book in a league of its own, and is a very helpful feature. The author also discusses the case histories and Modern Chinese Literature reports in terms of their weaknesses and strengths - likewise an instructive feature.
All in all, this is one of the best books on Chinese medicine I've seen, and I am pleased to have it on my shelf. It will continue to inform my practice and make me a better practitioner for decades to come.
Another fabulous book 6 Sept. 2013

Giovanni Maciocia manages to explain the intricacies of Chinese Medicine in a way that is relatively easy to understand. His knowledge is profound and his ability, immense. His books form the foundation of my library on Chinese Medicine.
Great book 16 Jun. 2014

Great book! Maciocia provides lots of information and he is very detailed and thorough with his information. One of the better books I've bought.
Great Reference Book! 29 April 2014

Fantastic for TCM practitioners, not for general public 20 Nov. 2014
By Sierra Abate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this TCM book and will never get rid of it. As an acupuncturist who is looking to specialize in women's health, this was a fantastic purchase. The layout is perfect and it provides enough information without going into to much detail for those whom have a grasp on the TCM concepts already. This book is great for TCM students as well as licensed practitioners. I do not recommend this book to the public as this information will not make sense to anyone who has not completed or currently going through Traditional Chinese Medical training.
