Chinese Medicine Dermatology: A Free Introductory E-book

I am very excited to share the new E-book we have been working on for so very long: An Introduction to Chinese Medicine Dermatology.  (This E-book can be downloaded through the above link).

I am very honored to work on this project as an author and editor.  This project is very near and dear to my heart as I am closely involved with both partner organizations.   The book was a was  collaboration between the International Traditional Chinese Medicine Dermatology Association and Learn Skin, the online integrative dermatology organization.

What’s in the Book?

This e-book is a thorough introduction to Chinese medicine  Dermatology with an explanation of the theoretical concepts and treatment approaches to skin diseases.  The book contains an in depth explanation of herbal medicine therapies which are taken orally and topically as well as a comprehensive discussion on the preparation and sourcing of herbal medicine.  Acupuncture and cupping for skin conditions is also covered.

The book also includes chapters on the background and treatment approaches to the most common skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. There is also an overview of Chinese Medicine nutrition for skin and Qi Gong/Tai Ji exercises for overall health, wellness and skin health.
