By Jake Fratkin.

Essential Chinese Formulas provides concise 2-page summations of 133 classical formulas, 83 modern formulas, and 9 single herbs. Within are formulas with ingredient percentages, clinical applications, historical origins, contraindications, and commentary. The formulas are organized into 18 clinical groups with 54 chapters, and include practical descriptions at the beginning of each chapter.

This book accomplishes two tasks. The first is a summary of existing information on formulas from the Chinese and English language sources, with appropriate references. The second offers Jake Fratkin’s 32 years of experience in using and applying Chinese herbal medicine. His personal insights are included in the Commentary for each formula.

In TCM colleges, students are exposed to over 800 formulas. This book focuses on the 225 most important formulas in clinical practice, and references the various manufacturers for each formula. It is a revised and simplified update of its predecessor, Chinese Herbal Patent Medicines, The Clinical Desk Reference (2001). Its usefulness in the clinic will make this book a must-have for all practitioners and students of Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine.
