Book Description :

A "Renga" is an ancient form of Japanese poetry. The Divine Farmer's Renga is an homage to all the tea sellers, divine farmers, and pastoral gleaners whose use of medicinal herbs creates a kind of poetry all its own. The Divine Farmer's Renga is a "materia medica," or tome of medicine, that reads like a book of poetry. Or some might say it's a book of poetry that reads like a materia medica. Written straight from the heart, this unique work combines years of research, journal entries, letters, and notes written on table tops and the back of napkins from journeys around the world and into the self. It includes nearly 250 individual Chinese herbology entries, ranging from the "Gathering Happiness Flower" to the giant black centipede. Each listing provides alternate names from other modalities of alternative medicine, as well as the "Five Elements" of energetic qualities and a quick reference of traditional uses in Chinese medicine. Tying the herbs together are more than 1,000 haiku-style verses arranged in traditional Japanese "san-ku," or candlestick form. Some poems refer to the herbs themselves. Others range from the insightful to the sublime: pastoral tributes to the Japanese poet Basho or the simple nostalgic joys of tasting a cheap popsicle. Alexander Lucksmith's first book is an eclectic, original work that is perfect for poets and practitioners alike.

Book Description :

One of the cornerstones of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), herbal medicine has evolved over centuries of clinical practice and empirical results into a vast body of knowledge encompassing more than 6,000 substances, most of whose effects and uses have been documented and researched. The literature on Chinese medicinal herbs is unparalleled and unsurpassed in the world's medical knowledge; the earliest known pharmacological work was composed before the end of the third century B.C. The first classical Chinese materia medica appeared during the late Han dynasty (25-22- A.D.) and included 365 entries of botanical, zoological, and mineral substances, listing their properties and effects. Subsequent materia medica were assembled during virtually every dynasty from the Liang (456-536 A.D.) to the Qing (1645-1911). Among the major treatments published during these centuries was the 30-volume Materia Medica Arranged According to Pattern, which had 1558 entries, more than 3,000 formulae, and became the official pharmacopoeia of herbal medicine in China for 500 years. n Illustrated Chinese Materia Medica brings to the English language a lavishly illustrated atlas of the 320 herbs used most frequently in traditional Chinese medical practice. Each substance is profiled authoritatively in monographs that provide pharmaceutical, botanical and English names; flavor properties and channel tropisms; functions; clinical uses and major combinations; dosage and administration; and precautions. Intended for medicinal and pharmaceutical chemists as well as practitioners of homeopathic and alternative medicines, this materia medica offers a unique blend of authenticity that is derived from knowledge of classical Chinese literature with a clearly practical objective of persenting valuable information in a straightforward, easily comprehensible style.
