Chinese internal medicine is a clinical subject which explains,
using traditional Chinese theories, the etiology, pathology and
therapeutic rules of the diseases or syndromes belonging to
internal medicine. It is also the foundation for learning and
research in other clinical branches of Chinese medicine, thus
playing a vital role in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
Chinese internal medicine has had a long history. Its origins
can be traced back several thousand years. Through long-term
diagnostic and therapeutic practices, a rich collection of
experiences and theories in Chinese internal medicine has been
accumulated and this has gradually evolved into a complete,
distinctive and effective clinical branch. In recent decades,
Chinese internal medicine has also undergone more significant
developments, especially in the treatment of cardiac or cerebral
vascular diseases, digestive tract diseases, renal diseases and
In order to popularize Chinese internal medicine and allow
readers to grasp its basic theories as well as diagnostic and
therapeutic methods, we wrote this book in a language easily
comprehensible by the layman. For ease of learning by modern
doctors, we proceeded from the current clinical practice and
outlined the contents with Western disease names. There are more
than 80 diseases discussed in this book. For each disease, the
Chinese syndrome differentiation and treatment as well as modern
diagnostic key points are provided, to make it more convenient for
the readers to study and understand.
The study of each disease should begin from its etiology,
pathology and diagnostic key points, followed by the differentiated
patterns and corresponding treatments. The respective points of
caution for each disease should also be well-noted. Finally, the
questions forming the "Daily Exercises" are useful for readers to
check their comprehension and recall of the material. Given the
chance, the theoretical knowledge should also be applied in
clinical practice so that past knowledge is tested and new clinical
knowledge and skills can be learned.
This book is suitable for those who are enthusiastic about TCM
and with basic medical knowledge, as well as clinical TCM doctors,
nursing personnel and TCM students.
