The new 2nd edition is designed to serve as both a textbook for students and an authoritative reference for TCM practitioners.

The introduction to the book traces the historical evolution of the formulas, and provides practical pointers for their preparation and use.

Detailed timelines depict the key events, authors, and texts in the 2,000-year history of traditional Chinese herbal medicine, placing the contents of this book in historical context.

The text includes over 800 medicinal formulas drawn from both classical and modern sources, and more than twice the information in the first edition. For each of the 340-plus principal formulas there is a discussion of therapeutic actions and indications, an analysis of the functions and interactions of the ingredients, the 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. Formula commentaries have been considerably expanded. Here the intent is to deepen the reader's understanding of a formula's genealogy, present an overview of controversies regarding composition, usage, and other issues, describe the extension of a formula's application to a wider range of disorders, and provide key clinical pointers to facilitate use of the formula in the modern clinic.

A new Comparisons section has been added to help students and practitioners focus on the distinguishing characteristics of each formula by contrasting it with other formulas that are similar in terms of composition or indication. Tables at the end of each chapter reinforce these distinctions by comparing and contrasting formulas across a wider range.

Among the appendices are a pinyin-to-English cross reference to the formulas, a basic summary formulary correlated to symptoms and disorders, a full listing of all books cited in the text, and a bibliography of all modern sources used in the preparation of the book. A comprehensive index to the formulas, and a general index, round out the contents.

Quality, Safety & Purity
Vertical Integration from Seed to Drum
To bring you authentic and sustainable botanical raw materials, we have partnered with a vertically integrated manufacturer. At the farm or wild-crafting site, our manufacturing partner ensures complete characterization of final product identity and composition first with the proper identification of the raw plant materials.

Water Processing
At the manufacturing facility, the raw plant material is processed in pure, clean, natural water. No alcohol, hexane or other industrial solvent is ever used, ensuring that no solvent residues will ever be present in the finished extract.

The water used for extraction undergoes a purification process that includes activated charcoal filtration, deionization, multilayer micro filtration, and multi-stage UV light treatment. The resulting water we use is USP grade.

Thorough Analytical Testing 
Throughout the processing procedure, the extracts are subjected to extensive analytical testing.

To achieve this, a combination of technologies is used, including:

  • simple organoleptic testing
  • HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography)
  • HPTLC (High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography)
  • UV Spectrophotometry.

 

Clean Room Packaging
After the extract ingredients are spray dried into a powder, the powder is collected in an isolated temperature and humidity controlled clean room area of the facility. The clean room area prevents contamination of extract powders from moisture, dirt, and other extract powders.
