Arthritis, cancer, dementia, and stroke are but a few of the afflictions associated with aging. For thousands of years, Chinese physicians and herbalists have successfully relieved the symptoms and eased the suffering of their patients, yet the rich heritage and extensive knowledge base gained by those Chinese practitioners has largely been unavailable to the Western world until recently. Now the work of distinguished Chinese researcher and pharmacologist Dr. Hong-yen Hsu, is available for the first time in the English language. Chinese Herbal Formulas for Older Adults lists hundreds of remedies for major and minor disorders associated with aging. It is intended for readers who have little or no background in the field of Chinese herbal medicine and who are generally without any conventional training in biological, physical, or chemical sciences. Medical practitioners or allied health sciences personnel, as well as students in various health care fields, may also find useful information that summarizes the crucial points of each herbal formula.
