Product Description:

Chinese patent medicines are family and medical formulas rooted in an herbal tradition stretching back more than 5,000 years. Known as "classical" formulas because of their effectiveness and origins in antiquity, versions of most are now produced and marketed in the United States. This essential guide provides a transition from the use of Chinese-manufactured formulas to those manufactured in the United States and is intended to serve as a reader-friendly resource for everyone interested in this revolutionary branch of medicine.
