Obstetrics and Gynecology in Chinese Medicine



New edition of the most comprehensive Chinese Medicine Obstetrics and Gynecology textbook in the English language

World-renowned author and teacher Giovanni Maciocia gives a clear, detailed explanation of the physiology, pathology and aetiology of women's disorders in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and

adapts these to Western conditions and patients.

Seventy gynecological conditions are discussed in detail with consideration given to differentiation between conditions, the advised treatment using acupuncture and herbs, prevention and prognosis. Guidelines on lifestyle and use of the eight Extraordinary Vessels are provided, with case studies allowing easy application of theory to practice throughout.

New for this edition:

New attractive two-colour layout with book marks to ease navigation
Endometriosis and its treatment now included and fully covered in a new chapter
Infertility chapter includes recent research highlighting factors in infertility
All prescriptions now removed from the text and attractively presented in three appendices: Patient Remedies, Prescriptions and Three Treasure Remedies

"Obstetrics and Gynecology in Chinese Medicine is a paradigmatic work. It is tempered with reverence and innovation, meticulous archival attention and detailed modern clinical insight. When future generations look back at this work…they will find not only knowledge and wisdom but also reasons for inspiration and awe."

From the Foreword to the first edition by Ted J. Kaptchuk, Associate Director, Centre for Alternative Medicine Research, Beth Israel Hospital; Instructor in Medicine, Harvard medical School, Boston, USA.


· Physiology and pathology of women's disorders in Chinese medicine
· Aetiology and diagnosis of women's disorders
· Differentiation and treatment - including acupuncture, herbs and patent remedies - of 64 gynecological conditions
· Prevention and prognosis for each disease
· Approximately 100 case histories from the author's own practice
· A detailed discussion of the use of the eight extraordinary vessels in gynecology


"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."
