“Chinese Herbal Formulas and Applications is great.
I am amazed by how much work must have gone into it.
I love the sections on pharmacology, clinical research,
and interactions with drugs.
The “authors’ comments” enhance the book a lot,
as do the comparisons between formulae.
It is refreshing to have a Chinese medicine book
that has terminology that is easy to read and flows well.
Congratulations on a monumental work.”
Giovanni Maciocia, C.Ac. (Nanjing).
“John Chen and Tina Chen have shown reverence for
the historical treasures of Chinese Medicine
and are a worthy conduit in transmitting these insights
to present and future generations of medical practitioners.
This major reference work offers insights for even
the most experienced clinician
as well as the beginning practitioner.
It combines the highest level of scholarship and clinical application
and is a major contribution to the ongoing growth of Chinese Medicine.
This work provides a research-based milestone
in the continuing integration of
ancient and traditional
Eastern medicine and modern Western medicine.”
Steven Rosenblatt, M.D., Ph.D., L.Ac.
"Chinese Herbal Formulas and Applications is a “Must Have”
those practitioners and students of Chinese herbal medicine.
This reference makes a unique contribution to
the literature and practice of
both traditional Chinese and integrative medicine.
No other text to date provides as much guidance on
the pharmacology of classical formulas
and their application
in treatment of Western biomedical conditions.
This is a complete presentation of a Chinese herbal formulary
for the integration of
Traditional Chinese and Western medicine."
Roy Upton, Herbalist.
Executive Director, American Herbal Pharmacopoeia
"This book is a major contribution to
the understanding and use of Chinese herbology.
A rigorously researched compilation of classical herbal formulas,
it is destined to become a standard encyclopedic reference for herbology."
Signe Beebe, DVM, CVA.
Faculty, Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine
"This book is not only an ideal textbook for acupuncture schools and
but also a must-have reference for medical doctors:
a superlative resource for holistic health care professionals."
