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, abstrated 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.
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.
