An Exposition on the Eight Extraordinary Vessels - Acupuncture, Alchemy & Herbal Medicine.

This is the first English translation and commentary of Li Shi-Zhen's Exposition on the Eight Extraordinary Vessels (Qi jing ba mai kao). In addition to the original Chinese text and translation, the authors provide an overview of its themes - theory, acupuncture, herbal medicine, internal cultivation, and pulse diagnosis -- extensive commentaries on the text, and a discussion of the book's influence on subsequent pre-modern and modern practitioners.

The book is divided into five parts...

Part I provides an introductory overview of the main themes in the text: theory, acupuncture, herbal medicine, internal alchemy, and pulse diagnosis. Part II contains the Chinese text and translation of the Exposition itself. Part III presents extensive commentaries on the text, and Part IV discusses the influence of Li Shi-Zhen's extraordinary vessel writings on subsequent pre-modern and modern physicians. Part V consists of appendices containing tables of herbs, prescriptions, acupuncture holes, and the people and books mentioned in the Exposition. There is also an extensive bibliography, point/hole and herb/formula index, and general index.
