Review

One of the most comprehensive synthesized presentations of traditional and scientific knowledge of Chinese herbal medicines. Roy Upton, Executive Director, American Herbal Pharmacopoeia. --Roy Upton, Executive Director, American Herbal Pharmacopoeia.

This book is meticulously detailed source of information on pharmacological effects, clinical research and safety data. Richard Hammerschlag, Co-president, Society for Acupuncture Research. --Richard Hammerschlag, Co-president, Society for Acupuncture Research.

Applause for the Bicameral View: Chinese Medical Herbology and Pharmacology, by Chen and Chen The new materia medica entitled Chinese Medical Herbology and Pharmacology by John Chen and Tina Chen, is a valuable contribution, not just because more than 1200 glossy pages describe over 500 herbs and their many parts and preparations, but also because the language of pharmacology and herbology is precisely chosen. The volume is steeped in the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and then infused with Western science. Clear explanations and tables make the details of this book accessible. Traditional properties, channels, and therapeutic actions of each herb are described. Key diagnostic symptoms are differentiated in several tables using traditional terms. Other charts that compare similarities and differences of herbs within the category are invaluable tools for the student. Additional lists of herbs from other categories that share the section s function are found in each summary. For example, page 357 contains a list of 31 herbs that have Damp-Draining functions but ordinarily belong to other categories. Pharmacology, Clinical Research and Toxicology are thoroughly referenced, using sources selected, according to the authors, by relevance, strong study design, English language, use of human subjects, and wherever possible, with preference given to randomized, blinded, controlled studies over observational reports. However, most of the research available on Chinese herbs is still in Chinese language journals. Herbal Cautions, Contraindications, and Herb-Drug interactions are examined in many of the monographs. The Author s Comments sections with clinical notes are useful to practitioners as is the specific information for treatment of Overdosage. For example, page 788 describes symptoms of Quan xie overdose and contains 5 formulas for treatment. There are more good lists and charts, for cautions during nursing and pregnancy, dietary interactions, and dosing by age and weight. Writing and referencing this materia medica required eight years to complete, with a staff of 50, peer review by 35 experts in the field, and photos contributed from three herb companies. To improve its suitability as a desk reference the photos should be reviewed for standard species. For example, on page G5, the photo titled Ban Lan Gen is a substitute commonly found in many dispensaries. The Chen s have accomplished an impressive work that brings Traditional Medicine together with Pharmacology. The words chosen to talk about herbs inevitably will define the boundaries of our discussions on Traditional Medicine. An author from the last century emphasized the importance and implications of speech this way: People evolve a language in order to describe and thus control their circumstances, in order not to be submerged by a reality that they cannot articulate. * As herbs are increasingly examined, researched, and regulated, herb practitioners must cling to the foundational elements that give reason and utility to Traditional Medicine. The art and science of chemistry has its own useful language, rules, scope, and beauty. Chinese Medical Theory has a different language and world view. For the advancement of the herbal profession, Chinese Medical Herbology and Pharmacology makes good use of both. Mercy Yule, L.Ac. *James Baldwin, letter to the New York Times, 1979 --Mercy Yule, L.Ac.
