Understanding and Treating Hot Flashes in Menopause with Chinese Medicine is the first book in history to be written on the subject. This book combines Chinese medicine concepts with current Western medicine frameworks of science and understanding of patho-mechanisms for a contemporary treatment approach to hot flashes in menopause.

Exploring current treatments in Western medicine as well as acupuncture and herbs, he presents a complete evaluation of how modern treatment strategies can be improved through an integrated approach.

Allowing for a deeper understanding of the causes of hot flashes in menopause, this book opens doors to fresh approaches and treatment strategies for women's healthcare practitioners from both branches of medicine.

    In this text, Brian Grosam explores the hot flash phenomenon from many angles; from Yin deficiency to Yang deficiency, from excess to deficiency, from ancient to modern, and from the perspective of Chinese medicine to western medicine. Through this, he helps practitioners avoid common wrong turns in the diagnosis and treatment of this common and often debilitating symptom, helping us to diagnose the patient before us more accurately.
