Using a variety of well-known English-language resources and the PRC text, Zang Fu Zheng Zi (Study of Zang Fu Syndromes), the authors have compiled a text written originally for student and staff use at the NSW College of Natural Therapies. Subsequently it has been reorganized to conform to the Oriental Medicine requirements of two well-known TCM institutes in California USA. Each zang fu condition is detailed according to etiology, clinical manifestations, complications, associated biomedical conditions, differential diagnosis, and treatment. The detailed descriptions of the herbal formulas include corresponding reference to the zang fu syndrome, English, Pin Yin, and familiar name, actions, syndromes, clinical manifestations, treatments, modifications, and formula variations. The indexes are substantive and separately list formula names by Pin Yin, English, and Latin, herbs by Pin Yin name, and points, tongue, pulse, and symptom listings.
