New York/Stuttgart – “Chinese Herbal Medicine,” recently published by Thieme, gathers the herbal formulas of master practitioner Dr. John H. F. Shen in one volume for the very first time. Not only does it incorporate the experience of Dr. Leon Hammer, who studied directly under Dr. Shen for nearly three decades, but it also presents the stimulus, rationale, and thinking behind many of the formulas Dr. Shen developed. This book is a unique compendium that includes expert analysis and commentary by the authors along with the clinically-tested herbal formulas used to treat conditions that affect people from infancy to old age.
"With this book, Leon Hammer and Hamilton Rotte generously share the bounty of Dr. Shen's herbal prescriptions. [The] adept analysis of their contents, indications, and conceptual foundation makes this an eminently practical clinical guide. These formulas are now available for us as inspiration, to study and to put to good use." – From the Foreword by Efrem Korngold, OMD, Lac
Offering a window into the mind and practice of one of the greatest innovators in Chinese herbal medicine, and integrating the knowledge and expertise of two foremost modern practitioners, this book is essential reading for all Chinese medicine practitioners, herbalists, and other medical professionals prescribing herbs.
