These books are suitable for students and practitioners with a basic understanding of Chinese medicine. For example they are suitable for:

  • Acupuncturist practitioners with no prior training in Western or Chinese herbal medicine

  • Practitioners of Oriental herb medicine who wish to incorporate Western herbs into their practice

  • Practitioners of naturopathy or Western herbal medicine with some basic training in the theory of Chinese medicine

  • However, for the Basic 9-day Course, it is advisable to have a detailed knowledge of Chinese organ syndromes.

The emphasis of these books are on using and combining Western herbs according to the new integrated system of Chinese medicine, Western herbal tradition, and modern pharmacology.

These books are not specifically about mixing Western and Chinese herbs in the same combination, although Chinese herbs appear in some of the combinations described.
