From the Preface: The basis of Chinese medical theory is rooted in Confucian, Taoist and Buddhist philosophy. The perspective is always one of activating and supplementing the body's innate healing capacity to restore biological balance and harmony. From there, it extends to assume universal value and meaning beyond cultural and philosophical sectarianism. The theories and principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are being successfully applied to the use of Westem drug therapy, vitamins, minerals and other supplements. Chinese physiology, as described in this book from a TCM perspective, has been fully validated in our own research to reflect the most profound and significant aspects of Western physiology. The difference is simply that the orientation of TCM is more functional, referring to in-depth physiological interactions, while Western scientific physiology is more mechanically specific.The practice of Chinese Herbalism is like a detective mystery where diagnosis becomes the gathering of evidence. Differential diagnosis means that no single piece of evidence necessarily tells all. One interprets a particular TCM condition based on the primary complaint, after which it is confirmed through the process of assessing the various patterns, conditions and pulse and tongue signs. For this, the most important tool is our discretionary powers of observation and evaluation. There is a considerable level of subjective evaluation, but there must always be enough objective evidence in order to initiate an effective treatment.
