This work is an easily accessed and highly illustrated guide to diagnosis in Chinese Medicine. Emphasis is placed on issues and symptoms commonly encountered in clinical practice, and the text focuses on interpreting these signs and symptoms. It is the author's thesis that since Chinese medicine diagnosis relies on a subjective appraisal of the patient.s symptoms and signs - which form a pattern . many factors beyond traditional Western symptoms must be taken into consideration. A subtle appraisal of a patient's disharmony, and a careful interpretation of a range of nuances, will lead the student or practitioner to a successful diagnostic interpretation.
