CHINESE HERBAL FORMULAS AND APPLICATIONS

PREFACE


The nomenclature for some herbs has been changed since the publication of Chinese Medical Herbology and Pharmacology in 2004. Most changes correspond to the 2005 edition of Zhong Hua Ren Min Gong He Guo Yao Dian (Pharmacopoeia of the People's Republic of China), which is the official pharmacopoeia in China, as well as our primary reference. Changes have been made to:

  • accurately reflect the part of the plant used, from Ba Dou (Fructus Crotonis) to Ba Dou (Semen Crotonis)
  • correctly pronounce the pinyin name, from Huang Bai (Cortex Phellodendri) to Huang Bo (Cortex Phellodendri Chinensis)
  • precisely describe the processing method, from Zhi Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae Praeparata) to Zhi Gan Cao (Radix et Rhizoma Glycyrrhizae Praeparata cum Melle)
  • be more specific: Kun Bu (Thallus Laminariae seu Eckloniae) is separated into Hai Dai (Thallus Laminariae) and Kun Bu (Thallus Eckloniae)
  • be more inclusive: from Shan Ci Gu (Pseudobulbus Cremastrae) to Shan Ci Gu (Pseudobulbus Cremastrae seu Pleiones)
  • adapt to the current rules and regulations, from Xi Xin (Herba Asari) to Xi Xin (Radix et Rhizoma Asari).
    Note: The aerial parts of asarum contain aristolochic acid, and have been banned by many countries around the world. As a result, the root and rhizome of asarum are now used, as they are believed to have little or no aristolochic acid.
  • and lastly, to humbly correct our previous errors, such as replacing the incorrect Mu Fang Ji (Radix Couulus Trilobus) with Mu Fang Ji (Radix Cocculi Trilobi).
