Based upon a constitutional approach to treatment, The Handbook of Constitutional and Energetic Herbal Medicine is a synthesis of the traditional herbal approach integrated with biomedical constructs.
While this holistic approach to treatment may seem incompatible with the biomedical approach, this is largely due to the lack of understanding of the medical interpretation of holism. In fact, the spirit, mind, body axis can be understood in terms of psycho-physiological processes and principles. It is a matter of interpretation and adaptation of principle. There are virtually no texts which cover this vital area and this is a huge gap in both herbal medicine therapeutics and orthodox medicine; The Handbook of Constitutional and Energetic Herbal Medicine aims to bridge that gap.
This book will appeal to those involved in both complementary and mainstream medicine seeking a holistic approach which is rational and interpretable in biomedical terms.
