Qin Bowei (1901-1970)
Qin Bowel (1901 to 1970) was one of the most respected physicians of twentieth century China. He was an outspoken advocate for Chinese traditional medicine when it was supressed in the 1930’s; a Minister Health for the People’s Republic; a teacher whose students are renowned. His logic and clinical protocols are still at the core of traditional medicine as it is taught in China today. He was one of China’s post-revolutionary heroes, a man whose contributions to medicine were a social accomplishment of lasting force. He was also an author of rare skills whose discussions of Chinese medicine, case histories, and theoretical expositions are notable for detail, precision, and clinical practicality.This anthology is a uniquely valuable collection of Qin Bowei’s clinical essays. The topics covered include liver disorders and measures for treating fever, cough, and swelling. These are presented at a level of detail found in a Western language. His discussions of ming men and supplemen tation reveal the logic of T.C.M. with unprecedented depth. Each of his these is complete with clinical examples, cases, and the application detail the treatment protocols recommended. [Redwing Reviews, June, 1995].
