Practical TCM & Pharmacology: Medicinal Herbs

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.
