In Chinese herbal medicine, the effectiveness of any medicinal is dependent upon its correct preparation before being used in any formula. The specific functions desired of a Chinese medicinal may be maximized or selected by this correct preparation, thus insuring a more successful overall effect for the formula in which it is included. Such processing is called pao zhi in Chinese and is a very ancient part of the practice of Chinese medicine, dating back to at least the 2,000 years. This book describes specific preparation instructions and used for over 250 Chinese herbs. It is an excellent addition to any Chinese herbal practitioner's reference shelf.

As practitioners ourselves, we have run our own Chinese herbal dispensary for many years. Therefore, we have had ample opportunity to compare the clinical effectiveness of processed versus unprocessed Chinese medicinals. Our experience confirms that processing Chinese medicinals according to the directions contained in this book does make these medicinals more clinically effective. The author goes so far as to say that differently processed medicinals are actually different ingredients! This is an aspect of Chinese herbal medicine that is poorly known In the West and deserves much greater attention.About the Author:
