About this Unit
This unit presents the origin, development and features of classical Chinese herbal medicine (Jing Fang), and reveals their pharmacological and clinical outcomes based on the latest clinical observation and research. This unit will appeal to practitioners seeking to extend and deepen their knowledge and clinical skills with Chinese herbs and to students embarking on research in this area. The classical texts contain deep insights on Chinese herbs and formulae for a range of conditions. Selective herbal formulae from the Treatise on Cold Pathogenic Diseases (Shanghan Lun) and the Synopsis of Golden Chamber (Jingui Yaolue) are explored in depth to demonstrate the clinical applications.
