Psoriasis (bái bǐ, white crust) is a common and burdensome chronic inflammatory skin disease. The worldwide prevalence of psoriasis is at around 2 % and the occurrence of this disease is increasing. In the West, patients lack options in conventional medicine -- treatments are unpleasant, cause side effects, or simply prove unsatisfactory. Chinese herbal medicine, in contrast, has a long and successful tradition of treating psoriasis. It offers an individual, complex and effective approach, with far fewer side effects than anything Western medicine has to offer. This book aims to explore Traditional Chinese Medicine's perspective on this disease, and how it is categorized according to different patterns. The book explains in great detail how psoriasis is treated with Chinese herbal medicine, with both internal and external applications. Aspects of clinical experience are included to expand upon and bring to life the theory in this book. With a hands-on approach, many examples show how you can immediately start treating your patients in your TCM practice, and provide relief for your patients suffering from psoriasis.
