“when i startet to study chinese herbal medicine in 2003 i must admit i felt totally lost among all the hundereds of herbs and prescriptions. 🙈 desperately i wished for an overwiew, a tool that would not only help me to look through the huge jungle of information but also to understand the relationships between main prescriptions, associated prescriptions, and their crossreferences – and all of it preferably in a neat, nice, handy form. 🤓 what began as a struggle and draft developed during a period of more than six years into a detailed “masterpiece” about prescriptions and possible modifications. 👩🎓
i have been using this pocketguide now for years in my daily practice as a reference book, and it has proven to me it’s great utility when it comes to look up information, to find inspiration or confirmation of considerations.💡
