Riassunto: This book describes the step-by-step process of composing a TCM herbal formula. It describes a simple, straight- forward methodology of moving from disease diagnosis to pattern discrimination to treatment principles and, from there, to choosing a guiding formula and modifying it with additions and subtractions to make it more perfectly fit each individual patient. This book fills in much that is left unsaid by other books on Chinese medicine and formulas and clarifies what other authors have left obscure. In China, the information in this book is absorbed by osmosis in supervised clinical practice under mentors with decades of experience. Therefore, most Chinese books do not feel it necessary to explain all this information. The second half of the book is devoted to discussing approximately 150 variations of the formula, Si Wu Tang (Four Materials Decoction), in the light of the material presented in the first half.
Dall'autore: I wrote this book because it seemed to me that Western schools of Chinese medicine were not making the fundamental methodology of this system of medicine clear to their students. Other Western teachers seemed not to be clear on this matter themselves, while Chinese teachers either did not see why explaining this methodology was necessary or did not have the English to explain it adequately. Having explained over and over again what I thought were self- evident basic concepts to non- Chinese students around the world, I realized that this material is not self-evident and needed to be spelled out in English even if it did not need to be spelled out in the same way in Chinese. After practicing Chinese medicine for more than 20 years, my experience is that Chinese medicine is essentially a problem-solving methodology, not a bag of exotic clinical tricks. Until or unless one becomes clear about this methodology and can use it in real- life clinical practice, Western practitioners are often only practicing Western medicine using Chinese herbs and acupuncture needles. Whereas, for me, the methodology of Chinese medicine is the real thing a wish-fulfilling gem that can solve most clinical problems on an ad hoc basis no matter what the idiosyncracies and complications.
