This work, presented in two volumes, contains more than 400 formulas including 391 of the most commonly used herbal formulas plus other associated formulas which are described in detail complete with charts and illustrations. Each is presented in both classical presentation regarding traditional herbal theory as well as pertinent modern applications and scientific studies referenced and supplemented from an extensive data collection including 25 classical books about herbal formulations and 70 scientific journals. Each formula is outlined in a detailed descriptive format and includes source, ingredients, preparation, function, indication, actions, pharmacological studies, clinical applications, commentary, discrimination, and reference. The line drawings of the corresponding sho, or pattern conformation, are one of the few books in print that give a visual guidemap of the classical indications commonly observed or recorded during patient examination, and as such are a helpful way to identify and recall a particular formula association. The revised edition contains updated discussions, analyses, and table entries. Volume 1 covers chapters 1-10. Volume 2 covers chapters 11-22 and includes a variety of formula index appendices for quick cross-reference by pinyin name, common name, literal name, and symptoms and disorders.
