Warm Pathogen Diseases is a sourcebook for understanding auto-immune disorders, the treatment of chronic bacterial and viral infections, and the treatment of epidemic illnesses. This practical guide belongs in every herbalist’s library. It is “everyday” useful!
The introductory chapters tell the compelling story of how traditional Chinese physicians developed the theories and concepts of warm pathogen disease in response to the epidemic health crises of their time. The evolution of their approach to etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment gives the background on how traditional Chinese medicine evolved to meet contemporary disease states. The second part of the book describes the various types of warm pathogen disease from a clinical perspective. Manifestations, pathogenesis, treatment principles, and formulas are covered with ample case histories.
