UCLA addresses 'lost in translation' issues in Chinese medicine

(University of California - Los Angeles Health Sciences) Millions of people in the West today utilize traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, herbs and massage therapies.

Researchers at the UCLA's Center for East-West Medicine have published a document designed to help evaluate and digest Chinese medical texts with greater sensitivity and comprehension.
