About this Unit
Herbal medicine is the principal therapeutic intervention in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This unit follows from Chinese Materia Medica 1 & 2, and begins the study of major Chinese herbal formulas, which form the basis for clinical prescribing in Chinese herbal medicine. The focus of this unit is to compare and contrast the main formulas in specified categories, and to analyse the specific actions of the herbs that make up the formula. Students will be required to formulate, assemble and prepare complex prescriptions. This unit expands upon the student's knowledge of the Chinese Materia Medica, as well as the understanding of TCM theory and practice principles.
