Press Reviews

  • Steve Clavey, Chinese medicine practitioner in Melbourne, Author, Translator and Editor of The Lantern

    This fabulous book is the most comprehensive description of psoriasis treatment with Chinese medicine that I have ever seen. Detailed discussion of the pathology of the illness from both Chinese and Western points of view, traditional insights into the use of each herb backed up by modern bio-medical research, numerous case histories followed up by a larger case study concerning the very common psoriasis of the scalp, and all laid out in a clear and logical manner that is a pleasure to read. If you have patients with psoriasis, I strongly recommend that you buy this book.

  • Daniel Maxwell, The Journal of Chinese Medicine (England), issue 118 October 2018

    The stand-out aspect of this text for me is that the author does not simply present us with dry clinical information-whether describing biomedical facts or traditional Chinese medicine theory, she frequently comments on them from her own clinical perspective. … The hard-won clinical knowledge of an experienced practitioner shines out from these pages, such that the author even structures the book by listing the primary patterns in order of their frequency in her clinical practice. … A genuinely useful clinical contribution on the subject of dermatology. Let us hope the author publishes more in this field.

  • Davina Mercuri, The Lantern (Australia), Volume 16 No. 1, January 2019

    Books on Chinese medicine dermatology are few and far between, and the information in them can often leave one with more questions than answers. Sabine’s debut book, solely on psoriasis, fills a gap in the field. … What makes this book refreshing is Sabine’s personal experiences and findings. She peppers the text with useful advice. … This work is a comprehensive text regarding Western and Chinese medicine in the treatment of psoriasis and anyone interested in dermatology or who has patients with the condition will find it a practical addition to keep within one’s reach.

  • Mary-Jo Bevin, Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Melbourne, Australia

    This new book is a great addition to the field of TCM dermatology, with a wealth of detailed and practical information for the treatment of psoriasis with Chinese medicine. Clear descriptions and colour illustrations of the various patterns, along with in-depth herbal treatment strategies, both internal and topical, make this a great clinical aid, and one I will be keeping close at hand!

  • CHINA BOOKS, Sydney, Australia

    Very excited about your new book! There is very little at all available for TCM practitioners on this topic so your book is most welcome!
