The Clinical Handbook of Chinese Herbal Products, fundamentally revised and expanded in this third edition, is the most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the best available medicines on the market. It describes the actions (TCM and biomedical), indications, ingredients, dosages, combinations and contraindications of hundreds of ethical and pure, commercially manufactured herbal medicinal products. User-friendly and clinically oriented, with many helpful pattern-based illustrations, this book is an essential addition to the library of any acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist.
For many practitioners, prepared medications are the foundation of their herbal practice. Properly used, they can be as effective as raw herbal decoctions for many common conditions. They also offer improved compliance, relatively low costs and a high level of quality control.
This volume includes: 330 medications from the physician’s point of view most viewed graphs, illustrations of the pattern-determining characteristics of individual medications, comparisons between similar medications, elaboration of a symptom index to differentiate medications, glossary of Chinese medical terminology, table of possible interactions between herbs and medications.
