Riassunto: Chinese Medicine for Aging Eyes
Learn to prevent and treat eye diseases of seniors
What are the 15 most common eye diseases that affect seniors and how can you help?
Chinese Medicine for Aging Eyes presents both Western and traditional Chinese medical approaches to eye treatment of common eye diseases seen in seniors including:
* Blepharoptosis and Myasthenia
* Dry Eye
* Senile Cataract
* Vitreous Humor Diseases
* Age-Related Macular Degeneration
* Retinopathy of Hypertension
* Post-Stroke Dysopsia
* Retinopathy of Diabetes
Along with a brief introduction to basic eye anatomy, this book describes the basic diagnosis and testing methods used in Western medicine. Each of the fifteen eye diseases are examined from a Western medical point of view for symptoms, diagnosis and available treatment
In depth treatment for these same eye conditions is then presented through Chinese herbal formulas, acupuncture methods (including ocuzone, filiform, ear and scalp needling), 7-Star tapping, moxibustion and dietary formulas. There are also clear guidelines as to when a patient needs to be referred for Western medicine as well as how the two medical approaches can best work together for the benefit of the patient.
Throughout each chapter there are also numerous prevention methods described that can be shared with seniors including nutritional and dietary supplements, and self-care techniques such as tapping and self-massage. The prevention methods deal with both specific eye diseases as well as general conditions such as hypertension and diabetes that often lead to eye disease.
This book is important
* For practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine who wish to advance their skills and knowledge of eye disease in order to help their senior patients receive the best treatment possible and to be able to communicate better with optometrists and ophthalmologists.
*For seniors interested in knowing about eye diseases and the strengths and weaknesses of treatments available in both Western and Chinese medical approaches. There is also a wealth of self-care techniques described that can slow or possibly halt progression of eye disease.
*For Western medical practitioners interested in how Chinese medicine can help their senior patients in the prevention and treatment of eye disease, and how an integrated approach can be the most effective treatment.
*This book is important for anyone of any age wanting to care for their eyes!
Hoy Ping Yee Chan, OMD has over 25 years experience as a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine along with 18 years prior to that, working as a medical doctor in China. Over the past 30 years, she has shared her theories, medical knowledge, clinical experience and health care recommendations in acupuncture schools, continuing education seminars, television, newspaper interviews, public communities, and presentations at acupuncture conferences worldwide. In 2007, Hoy Ping Yee Chan was selected as one of the world's outstanding acupuncturists by the World Journal of Acupuncture-Moxibustion. Now retired, Dr. Chan continues to share her knowledge through books about acupuncture and herbal treatments with younger practitioners in order to benefit their patients. Her deep wish is that more acupuncturists obtain expanded knowledge to take care of elders who are suffering vision damage so that these seniors will have a better life in their old age. A second wish is that there will soon be better integration between traditional Chinese and Western medical practitioners to bring about improved treatment of eye diseases commonly found in seniors.
