( 病毒性肝炎的中医特色疗法 )


Viral hepatitis is one of the infectious diseases caused by various hepatitis viruses, which can be mainly divided into Type A, Type B, Type C, Type D, Type E and Type G. The seventh type of hepatitis viruses (TT Virus) has also been discovered now. Viral hepatitis is characterized by high infectivity, multiple routes of infection, widely epidemic range, high morbidity and prolonged course. Clinically, the major symptoms are poor appetite, nausea and vomiting, hepatosplenomegaly as well as hepatic damage. Among the various types of hepatitis, Type B, Type C and Type D are easier to develop into chronic hepatitis, even into carcinomatosis in severe cases. A few patients may experience a severe episode of the syndrome during the course of the disease.

Viral Hepatitis affects people's daily life seriously. How to prevent the disease has become one of the hot issues in the medical field. There have not been any reports in the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which directly mentioned the name of the virus hepatitis. However, there are descriptions in TCM about pathogeny, manifestations, regulations of diagnosis and treatments, prescriptions and herbs for each related symptom of Viral Hepatitis, and TCM has provided valuable clinical experience for subsequent generations of medical experts. The book gives a brief description of every type of hepatitis based on the characteristics of TCM treatment for viral hepatitis, including internal therapy, external therapy, acupuncture, massage, physical training and psychotherapy. The book also analyses the common manifestations and complications of the disease based on differential diagnosis in TCM.
