  • Obesity (TCM), as part of China’s Medicine Progress Series, has 19 excellent articles on obesity research with TCM. The articles included were recommended by the editorial boards of the journals in which they were originally published, covering mechanism and clinical studies. These articles fully demonstrate the unique therapies and good efficacy of TCM in treating obesity, with scientific methodological support and objective conclusions. The original articles were published in Chinese, and this book is a compilation of English versions of selected articles.
