This text is the fruit of extensive research into the Chinese medical literature on pediatrics and provides practitioners with a well written, comprehensive TCM pediatric textbook. It covers over 45 common pediatric complaints, giving differential diagnosis, disease mechanisms, herbal treatments, acumoxa therapy where appropriate, and Bob's comments about each one. These diseases are presented in the chronological order that they usually appear and include everything from colic and cradle cap to mumps and pediatric hyperactivity. There are also special sections on pediatric diagnosis and treating young children with Chinese herbal medicinals. This book has been completely redesigned making it easier to read and easier to use, presenting all herbal formulas in a vertical presentation with the pin yin listed first.
