Description

 

    This extensive manual is a translation of the manuals used in the 1950's and are still used in China by more than a million ''barefoot doctors' today. China has a population so large that the number of college trained practitioner's is simply not enough. The ''barefoot Doctors' emerged to treat the sick and disabled for common medical problems that do not need professional expertise.

    It is the hope of the translators that this volume be used to give the layman an increase in medical knowledge. It is not meant for diagnosis and treatment of ailments that require medical supervision and attention. It is a great 'overview' for treating common conditions
