A comprehensive handbook of Chinese herbs and their clinical applications,
this updated 2nd revised edition describes in detail each herb’s characteristics with comparative charts to help clinicians discriminate between similar herbs and dosage guidance.
The handbook employs comparative charts to help clinicians to select the optimal medicinals for their patients.
Each table outlines the characteristics of a group of herbs, including extensive indications with relative strengths of action and function, the domain, flavour, nature, and dosage guidelines.
The book also caters for special circumstances in health that may alter a patient’s requirements, with appendices giving need-to-know instructions for a number of specific cases.
Easy-to-use and comprehensive, the handbook will facilitate efficient comparative reference, as well as detailing the fine points of discrimination.
