obstetricsObstetrics and Gynaecology in Chinese Medicine (Second Edition) by Giovanni Maciocia®
Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Chinese Medicine is a complete and detailed textbook of this speciality field with a focus on the diagnosis and treatment using acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

Giovanni bases his exposition on modern and ancient Chinese books, integrated with his long clinical experience. Many new approaches are discussed throughout the book, for example the simultaneous deficiency of both Kidney-Yin and Kidney-Yang in women, the peculiar aetiological factors applying to women, and the effect of sexual activity in gynaecological complaints.

The book deals with the diagnosis and treatment of women's gynaecological and obstetric disorders including endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.
