Format: Paperback
Jake Fratkin's book on Chinese pill and extract remedies is one of my desk-side references. It gives several names for most remedies along with recommended uses and dosages.Highly recommended for students of acupuncture or any aspect of Oriental medicine because ancient herbal combinations are made from ingredients that help maintain health and balance. Studying the combinations helps you to understand how mind and body work together according to Chinese medicine. I use the book as a quick reference when writing articles. It is one of the favorite sources that I list in ASIAN HEALTH SECRETS and PERSONAL RENEWAL.

Fratkin has done an excelleny job of offering a guide to the sometimes murky realm of Chinese patented herbal compounds. This volume has helped me navigate the aisls of local herb shops and locate bone bruise medicine with the aid of the non-English speaking shop clerk. I especially like this guide because it includes a list of ingrediants, and shows what percentage of each herb, animal, or mineral is included.

The first and best book of it's kind. Others have followed but this is still a highly useable guide after more than 20 years. Great for both those who are new to Chinese Medicine and those familiar. A great work that has added greatly to the spread of Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Easy to read reference on Traditional Chinese Medicine Patent Formulas. Lists contraindications and is indexed easily. Formulas such as Gan Mao Ling and Yin Chiao are discussed.
