The Clinical Medicine Guide - A Holistic Perspective (9780952218937)
The Clinical Medicine Guide - A Holistic Perspective has been a favourite textbook of holistic practitioners for much of the last decade. It was first published in 1993 (as The Manual of Conventional Medicine for Alternative Practitioners) and provides clearly presented information about conventional medicine that is readily accessible and relevant in everyday practice. This new edition is completely revised and updated containing more cases, some treated by Chinese medicine and others treated by homoeopathy. These cases illustrate a healthy alternative to conventional treatment when dealing with disease and symptoms.
There are 19 Chapters covering every major organ system with dedicated Chapters on Philosophy, Pathological Processes, Investigations, Infectious Disease and Cancer. Each chapter discusses both holistic and conventional ideas of the system being presented. In addition, there are clear disease classifications that are tailored for the holistic practitioner. Each disease is discussed from the viewpoint of:
- Holistic management
The section on holistic management discusses how to deal with cases complicated by prescribed drugs, how to assess the severity of a case and includes details of the corresponding syndrome in terms of Chinese medicine. At the end of each chapter there is information on how to recognise serious symptoms that may need referral.
