The medicinals are categorized according to the part of the plant primarily used medically. A description of each medicinal covers the source for the medicinal, its area of cultivation or wildcrafting, preparation, chemical constituents, pharmacological actions, Chinese medicinal properties, actions and indication as well as suggested dosages.

This valuable information is accompanied by color plates illustrating the main and alternate species used for each medicinal.
