This book is the third volume in the "Practical Traditional Chinese Medicine and Pharmacology" series. With a view to practicability and convenience for clinical application, this book provides detailed and essential information as required for the construction of herbal prescriptions on the respective properties, tastes, therapeutic functions and the directions of action on specific channels and collaterals of more than three hundred most commonly used medicinal herbs. For students and new practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, the "Indication & Combinations" and "Cautions & Contraindications" sections are particularly valuable. They provide useful empirical tips on how to combine two or more hers to promote therapeutic effectiveness and minimize toxicity and how to avoid the neutralization of the curative effects or serious side effects of incompatible herbs.
