It is a black and white copy printed by Amazon (which costs him about 2.5$). How am I supposed to look at the pictures of the retina and recognize anything if they are just black and white?..
Ophthalmology books go this one helped me to apply treatment. A must in the library.
As to content. A lot of it is rehashed basic TCM. The point maps give general indications, but it would have been helpful to know if there are specific differences between the A and B locations, and when to consider using each. True the books suggests to palpate for tender points, and indeed that is viable method of point selection. Still the book is thin on explaining how and why this microsystem works. In my mind, I can see how the face could map to the foot or hand, with the eyes being roughly where the points are. But there is no discussion of the underlying dynamics of the system.
The case studies were more like testimonials with a list of the points used. But very little clinical thinking was revealed. I rather feel like the message is "use your basic diagnostic skills to determine which organ(s) need treatment. Stick some needles in the feet, or use electro-stim, moxa or lasers." Again, no real discussion of when to use each method. Or what kind of current to use with the electro.
After spending a pretty penny, I feel like I now know where these special points are, but I now need to figure out the rest on my own. Maybe the classes are better. All in all, a thin book that is thin on content. Wish I had better news to share with you.
