As practitioners ourselves, we have run our own Chinese herbal dispensary for many years. Therefore, we have had ample opportunity to compare the clinical effectiveness of processed versus unprocessed Chinese medicinals. Our experience confirms that processing Chinese medicinals according to the directions contained in this book does make these medicinals more clinically effective. The author goes so far as to say that differently processed medicinals are actually different ingredients! This is an aspect of Chinese herbal medicine that is poorly known In the West and deserves much greater attention. This book is especially useful for those prescribing bulk Chinese medicinals. Using the information in this book, it is our experience that one can gain even better clinical effects as its author asserts.
