Chinese Herbal Medicine: Formulas & Strategies.(2nd Edition)D.Bensky/R.Barolet-2n
The new second edition of Chinese Herbal Medicine: Formulas & Strategies – the companion volume to Chinese herbal Medicine: Materia Medica – is designed to serve as both a textbook for students and an authoritative reference for practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine. Included in the new edition are over 800 medicinal formulas drawn from both classical and modern sources, which provide more than twice the information in the earlier edition. For each of the 340-plus principal formulas there is a discussion of its therapeutic actions and indications, analysis of the functions and interactions of the ingredients, method of preparation, and a list of modifications to customize the formula in the clinic. Over 460 variations and associated formulas offer additional options for the practitioner.
