Herbal medicine has been practiced for thousands of years in China where it is held in equal esteem with acupuncture and Western medicine. Recent evidence 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 comprehensive guide to the Chinese herbal healing arts includes history, diagnosis, a pharmacopia, and methods of preparation.
