Chinese Herbal Medicines: Comparisons and Characteristics


Description

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.

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.

"Chinese Herbal Medicines: Comparisons and Characteristics" is already wellknown to students and practitioners of Chinese herbal medicine.
