About the Book
Depression is in fact a potentially life-threatening mood disorder, and in recent years, there have been remarkable developments in the treatment of many psycho-emotional disorders. In TCM, practitioners seek the root cause of disease by assessing patterns of disharmony within both body and mind. Because clinical depression is a complex systemic disease, Chinese physicians follow the traditional guideline of “the brain governs the spirit-brightness” by applying integrative medical treatment along with psychotherapy and personalized pattern differentiation. This book introduces the current applications of Chinese formula medicinals while also providing practical integrative treatment methods such as warming yang and opening constraint.
