This exciting book is not only the most comprehensive and authoritative text on Chinese Materia Medica to have been published, it is a real value break-through.
Each of the 1,266 pages is typeset to deliver the maximum of information in a readable and easily-referenced format.
Each of the 670 herbs discussed is treated as a single monograph that presents the nomenclature of the medicinal substance, the Chinese therapeutic actions, dosage, cautions and contraindications, chemical composition, pharmacological effect, clinical studies and research.
There are references given for each herb and the author’s often add clinically-useful comments.
Also discussed are toxicology and herb-drug interactions.
The latter subject is of considerable importance now that this topic has been recently (July 2003) added to the California license board requirements.
The black and white images that accompany each herb discussion also show the substance as professionally prepared for decoction and to scale.
