Treatise on the Spleen & Stomach, Blue Poppy
TITLE: Treatise on the Spleen & Stomach: A translation of Li Dong-yuan’s Pi Wei
AUTHOR: Li, Dong-yuan
NEWLY TRANSLATED BY: Flaws, Bob
DESCRIPTION: This is the book which elevated the spleen and stomach to pivotal
importance in the theory and practice of TCM. However, it also introduced the
concept of yin fire, perhaps the most important concept in understanding
complicated internal diseases and their systemic ramifications. Li’s formulas
are treasure troves for those dealing with autoimmune and immune deficiency
diseases. This book will help clinicians solve many thorny problems in practice.
This new translation includes detailed commentary, relevant case histories and
random clinical trial reports for each chapter.
