Phytotherapy with Chinese herbs
Books on Chinese herbal medicine describe the selection and use of Chinese herbs in practice.
Ploberger’s Chinese herbal medicine explains the functions of individual herbs within a formulation and shows how one can adapt classical TCM formulas individually to the patient’s symptoms by adding or omitting certain herbs. There are many individual herbs in TCM. Only in a few cases is the treatment of a single drug successful. Combining several individual herbs into a single formulation is more efficient in most cases. It should be noted here that the effects of the individual herbs can complement, diminish and potentiate in a variety of ways through their combination. Florian Ploberger explains the creation of a TCM recipe in detail and practical. Due to the detailed description of the most important TCM single herbs available in German-speaking countries, the book is not only an important source of information for beginners and experienced therapists.
