Obstetrics, Gynecology & Pediatrics in Chinese Medicine

The Essential Guide to Acupuncture in Pregnancy & ChildbirthThe Essential Guide to Acupuncture in Pregnancy & Childbirth
by Debra Betts & Peter Deadman

In this beautifully-designed clinical textbook, acupuncturist Debra Betts draws on more than 15 years of experience specializing in the use of acupuncture during pregnancy and childbirth. Acupuncture is an ideal form of treatment in that it offers women drug-free relief from a multitude of problems that can arise during this time. Even for conditions like morning sickness, sciatica and symphysis pubis pain, which are often regarded as part of a normal pregnancy, acupuncture can not only improve a womans quality of life, but also prevent them from becoming serious enough to necessitate medical treatment. Pre-birth acupuncture can enhance an efficient labor, and the teaching of acupressure to a womans partner or caregiver can make a great difference in the levels of pain experienced during labor. During labor itself, acupuncture can play a role in actively reducing the level of medical interventions such as inductions, forceps deliveries, and caesarean sections. Acupuncture can provide effective treatment for disorders such as pregnancy-induced hypertension and posterior presentation, and help induce labor, allowing women to achieve natural childbirth.

Liu Feng-wu was a famous Chinese gynecologist in the middle of this century. This book is a selection of his essays and case histories. His insights into the practice of Chinese gynecology are a must read for anyone interested in this specialty. In this book, you will read Liu's insights into the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis, infertility, uterine myomas, amenorrhea, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and menopausal syndrome. In addition, there are sections on Liu's theories about the most important medicinals in TCM gynecology and a repertoire of his favorite formulas. This book is bound to expand the understanding of TCM gynecology for all Western practitioners of this specialty. As practitioners ourselves, we were very excited when we came across the Chinese version of this book.
