9780702034282: The Complementary Therapist's Guide to Conventional Medicine: A Textbook and Study Course, 1e

The Complementary Therapist's Guide to Conventional Medicine is a unique textbook for students and practitioners of complementary medicine, offering a systematic comparative approach to Western and Eastern medicine. Practitioners of complementary medicine increasingly find themselves working alongside conventionally trained doctors and nurses and it is vital for them to develop a core understanding of conventional medical language and philosophy. The book is designed as a guide to understanding conventional medical diagnoses, symptoms and treatments, whilst also encouraging the reader to reflect on and translate how these diagnoses may be interpreted from a more holistic medical perspective. Throughout the text the practitioner/student is encouraged to see that conventional and more holistic interpretations are not necessarily contradictory, but instead are simply two different approaches to interpreting the same truth, that truth being the patient's symptoms.

After introductory sections on physiology, pathology and pharmacology, there follow sections devoted to each of the physiological systems of the body. In these, the physiology of each system is explored together with the medical investigation, symptoms and treatments of the important diseases which might affect that system. As each disease is described, the reader is encouraged to consider the corresponding Chinese medical perspective.

The textbook concludes with chapters relating specifically to dealing with patients in practice. In particular these focus on warning signs of serious disease, supporting patients on medication and ethical issues which may arise from management of patients which is shared with conventional practitioners. The book also offers a detailed summary of 'Red Flag symptoms' which are those which should be referred for 'Western' medical investigation or emergency medical treatment, and also a guide to how patients can be safely supported in withdrawing from conventional medication, when this is clinically appropriate.

Those wishing to use the text for systematic study can make use of the question and problem-solving approach offered on the accompanying CD to which references to self study exercises appear at regular stages throughout the book. This means that the text can be easily adapted to form the basis of a study course in clinical medicine for students of complementary medicine. In addition to the self-testing questions and answers, the supporting CD also contains checklists for revision and full-colour illustrations.

About the Author:

Clare Stephenson trained as a medical doctor studying at both Cambridge and Oxford Universities and worked for a number of years as a general family practitioners. She trained in acupuncture in order to use it in her general practice but later decided to specialise in acupuncture. She was asked to go back to the College where she trained in acupuncture to teach conventional medical sciences to TCM students. The work on which the book is based was commissioned by the school for use with their students and has been trialled with those students over a 12 month period.

Review:

"This text has been written in a straight-forward manner free of technical jargon and therefore accessible t readers who may not have a strong scientific background. the illustrations are clear and well-labelled. What will be of particular value to therapists and patients alike is a list of 'red flags' - those indicators of serious disease which make a rapid referral to a conventional clinician essential...This book will be an indispensable addition to the bookshelf of many complementary therapists."
