Greetings. I have some doubts on my mind, maybe you can help me.
IÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â´m studying TCM a year ago (not in the US).
My school follows the Nanjing University school of TCM. Our main book for Diagnosis and
basic theory is "Le diagnostique dans la medicine chinoise" from Auteroch/Navailh
(a book which follows the Nanjing school), what do you think of this book?
I was told by my teachers not to read Macciocia books as they could puzzle and confuse me and
to stick to that book only. Why is that? IsnÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â´t Macciocia from Nanjing School too? It is,
but there are some differences between Macciocia and my Auteroch/Navailh book.
It seems to me that Macciocia books are very good for a TCM western student to learn,
what books do you use on your school?
I usually read both Macciocia and Auteroch/Navailh, but things are explained so differently that
it gets hard sometimes, on pulse diagnosis for instance.
And by the way, how many differente TCM school there are? As far as I know there is Beijing and
Nanjing system, but i donÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â´t know what differentiates them.
Thank you in advance for your help
