This landmark book is the most complete presentation of the integrated Chinese and biomedical treatment of infertility and reproductive gynaecology in the English language. Although primarily devoted to Chinese herbal medicine, the comprehensive discussions of every aspect of infertility, and the acupuncture protocols given for every pattern, will benefit every practitioner working in the field.

The lead author, Professor Yuning Wu, is principal doctor and Professor of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine at the Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is a leading fertility specialist in China. Infertility is a field in which integration of the two medicines is especially effective, and Dr. Wu demonstrates throughout this deeply clinical book the strengths of this dual approach.
