Traditional Chinese Medicine refers to a broad range of medicine practices sharing common theoretical concepts which have been developed in China and are based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years, including various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (Tui na), exercise (qigong), and dietary therapy. Although these practices are considered alternative medicine in the Western world, they are a common part of medical care throughout East Asia, accounting for an estimated 40% of all health care delivered in China. Topics discussed in this book include a comparison of Chinese views with Western perspectives on traditional Chinese Medicine and complementary alternative medicine; cinnabar and realgar in traditional Chinese Medicine; metabolomic analysis of herbal medicines; Chinese Herbal Medicine in health care; and acupuncture for patients with cerebral apoplexy.
