Description - Traditional Thai Medicine by C. Pierce Salguero

In Thailand today, traditional folk medicine competes successfully with Western hospital-based medicine, and represents a popular approach to healing even in modern cities such as Bangkok. This book offers a broad-brush history of medicine in Thailand from the 3rd millennium BC to the present. It traces this rich cultural heritage from its origins in Buddhism, animism and Ayurveda to its contemporary application in both rural and urban Thailand. The author spent eight years in field study and academic research on traditional Thai Medicine.
