The Yellow Monkey Emperor's Classic of Chinese Medicine, Paperback Book

The Yellow Monkey Emperor's Classic of Chinese Medicine Paperback

Illustrated by Spencer Hill


A horse complains of a chest as tight as a bear's embrace, a goat bleats about skin as dry as parchment, and a rat describes his urine as darker than soya sauce.

Join these lively characters and their friends as they seek diagnosis from wise animal sages and the yellow monkey emperor. Covering 78 syndromes of Chinese medicine, these cartoons graphically illustrate the disturbances and illnesses that can affect the organs of the body, or Zang Fu, as they are understood in Chinese medicine.

They are accompanied by a concise list of symptoms for easy diagnostic reference.

Combining Damo Mitchell's deep knowledge and experience with Spencer Hill's witty cartoons, this is a fun way to learn, remember and be entertained by the syndromes and their symptoms.
