Traditional Chinese Internal Medicine gives an academic introduction to the basic theory and practice of traditional Chinese internal medicine. It is intended for medical practitioners as well as those who are interested in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Modern research has been used to explain TCM’s approach to diagnosis and treatment in internal medicine.

The book’s general introduction stresses the basic idea of internal medicine in TCM, general principles for making diagnoses and administering treatment as well as diagnostic rules commonly used in internal medicine. Basic ideas covered include yin and yang, zang and fu organs and pathogeny and pathology. The authors have used these concepts into the contexts of both classical definitions and modern scientific research.

Subsequent chapters individually deal with common diseases and their pathogeny and pathology, differentiation and treatment as well as the modern research conducted on the efficacy of various treatments. These treatments include herbal prescriptions and other methods, such as acupuncture and moxibustion, with priority given to highly effective, ready-made ones.

The appendix includes a brief introduction to commonly used traditional prescriptions.
