Diagnosis through examination of the tongue in TCM


By Giovanni Maciocia, edited by Carlo Maria Giovanardi.

Diagnosis through the examination of the tongue is an essential part of traditional Chinese semiology. The validity of this diagnostic method lies in its simplicity and immediacy: the examination of this organ gives a clear picture of the main pathological process at work, even when the available elements are complex and contradictory. This systematic presentation of the diagnosis of the tongue is an important contribution to the transmission of medical knowledge from the Eastern to the Western world. With clinical cases accompanied by colour photographs, the text is an important guide to clinical practice.
