Format: Paperback
While this isn't the most comprehensive text on acuptuncture for schizophrenia it is an accessible entry level into this complex area of TCM which is often overlooked by practitioners and patients. It does contain contain two of the most popular point prescriptions for mania and depression psychosis although I would add GB34 and Liv 3 to the prescription for mania, for those interested in reading further the Journal Of Chinese Medicine has many research papers on this area of TCM, alternatives treatments can offer so much to patients with schizophrenia however many western modalitys focus only on psychiatric medication, much can be done complimentary with acupuncture, TCM, Detox and nutritional therapuitics, I'd also recommend, Shi Xue mins comprehensive textbook of acupuncture and moxibustion, Nutrient Power by William J Walsh MD, Acupuncture for Insomnia by Hamid Montakab, Shen by Elisa Rossi and Dragon Rises, Red Bird Flies by Leon Hammer MD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dian Kuang: A Modern Clincal Approach 7 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a very accessible book for lay people and novice practioners, and also has enough points of interest for those more experienced in TCM. However, for those familiar with modern acupuncture as currently practiced in Nanjing University of TCM, it is a little less useful in the practicals of theraputic application. It also is a little frustrating for those not so enthusiastic about Nigel Wiseman's glossary of medical terminology. All in all, though, it is a worthwhile addition to your medical library.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book was recommended to me by a Mental Health Nurse who spoke ... 11 Oct. 2014
By Marsha Flynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bought 2 copies, one for myself, second for my acupuncturist, she is currently reading it. The book was recommended to me by a Mental Health Nurse who spoke highly of it. As a lay person some is difficult for me to understand & follow but know she will understand all of it's concepts. What I appreciate most is the open minded thinking that traditional western medicine can and often should be combined with long proven holistic treatments to improve and enhance patients lives.
