Herbal medicine is a healing art that has been practiced for thousands of years in China where it is held in equal esteem with acupuncture and Western medicine.

Ephedrine (prescribed for the treatment of asthma) and Digitalis (a cardiac stimulant and diuretic) are examples of modern drugs that were recognized centuries ago in the Orient. Recent evidence further suggests that certain drugs taken in their unrefined state, and in accordance with the laws of traditional Chinese medicine, are vastly more effective than synthetic medicines used in the West. This book can be used in every stage of the study of herbal medicine. It is an excellent primer for the novice, beginning with an introduction to the history and traditions of Oriental medicine and including a detailed presentation of the many crude drugs that comprise the Chinese pharmacopeia.

A theoretical section explains principles of Oriental philosophy as they apply to medicine and serves as a handbook to more advanced students and practitioners, providing charts, graphs, and other material essential to clinical practice. Among topics covered are the stages of disease, principles of diagnosis and pathology, and the adaptation of the body to treatment. Appendixes give thorough cross-indexing of Chinese and Japanese names and their Latin counterparts, as well as Chinese characters for the formulas, making it easy to fill prescriptions at any herbal pharmacy.
