pagine: 268

Students and practitioners of Chinese herbal medicine must learn hundreds of commonly used herbs as the first step in studying Chinese herbal medicine. Additionally, junior practitioners lack the clinical experience required to ensure that they can skilfully select the appropriate herbs to use in the formulas. This presents them with a major challenge. "Chinese Herbal Medicines: Comparisons and Characteristics" presents a method of learning individual herbs through vivid and clear discussion of their characteristics and through a comparison with other herbs of their characteristics and strengths. This clear and logical approach makes it easy for the user to understand and memorize the functions of specific herbs. It also enables experienced practitioners to improve their therapeutic results through the use of better formulas. The key features of the new edition: retains the same easy to follow format as the first edition; presents detailed comparisons and discussions of commonly used Chinese herbs; provides a series of thought-provoking questions with very detailed answers; structured to help the reader to learn and memorize the content more easily; the easy-to-use question-and-answer format is convenient to apply in the consulting room; includes discussion of clinical applications to help with the practical use of the information in clinical setting; revised and updated with particular emphasis on the safe use of Chinese herbal medicines; new appendices provide information on safe dosages, commonly used herbal combinations and the meanings of Chinese words used in herbal names; and, provides a sound foundation for the study and practice of Chinese herbal medicine. "Chinese Herbal Medicines: Comparisons and Characteristics" is already wellknown to students and practitioners of Chinese herbal medicine. This new, improved edition will continue to be of value to students and practitioners alike. It is now supported by a new companion volume by the same author entitled "Chinese Herbal Formulas: Treatment Principles and Composition Strategies". Together, these two books provide a sound foundation for the study and practice of Chinese herbal medicine.

Traditionally the study of Chinese herbal formulas has involved memorizing hundreds of classic formulas, and recognizing and summarizing the relevant treatment rules and formula-making strategies in order to create appropriate formulas for treatment. This new book by Yifan Yang, author of "Chinese Herbal Medicines: Comparisons and Characteristics" (which pioneered the comparative method of single herb study), introduces a new approach to formula study. The reader is shown how to use the basic treatment rules and composition strategies, abstracted from hundreds of formulas, in order to create individual formulas for treating a variety of syndromes. The method is clear and easy to understand, with a systematic approach and an emphasis on essential knowledge. In this title, 19 common syndromes and 60 sub-syndromes are described and discussed in detail, illustrated with clear line drawings. Chinese diagnosis of syndromes are related to the Western disease names. Treatment principles and plans are given for each syndrome. Principles of herb selection are introduced with recommendations and explanations of specific herbs in relation to each syndrome. 166 classic formulas are given as examples. Treatment strategies in complicated syndromes, treatment sequences, cautionary advice for herbs and combinations with Western drugs, dosage management in a variety of conditions and commonly used pairs of herbs are all discussed. Detailed indexes and contents lists facilitate quick reference and searching within the text. "Chinese Herbal Formulas: Treatment Principles and Composition Strategies" is written by an experienced practitioner and lecturer of Chinese herbal medicine. It is the ideal companion to "Chinese Herbal Medicines: Comparisons and Characteristics", by the same author.
