Herbal remedies for Cancer is obviously one of the most common areas where demand for alternative treatment is overwhelming. A significant portion of the American and European populations regularly consumes health supplements to either prevent cancer or as an adjuvant (applied after initial treatment for cancer, especially to suppress secondary tumor formation) therapy during cancer treatment.
Health surveys conducted in Hong Kong (a city of predominantly Chinese people) have shown that over 90% of cancer patients consume products of Chinese medicine, either prescribed by Chinese medicine practitioners or purchased over-the-counter. Choosing Cancer as the theme of our third volume is therefore appropriate.
There is no intention of guiding the reader on the choice of therapy, nor is there any suggestion of preferences of the available options of treatment (although a few solid examples are given). Instead we want to introduce the justification and logic of using Chinese medicine as an adjunct, discuss about the basic principles and the options that are available. Also, it is to expose the regional and cultural varieties, and some problems related to their use, describe some natural products of particular interests and lastly, give examples of specific cancers being treated with herbal therapy.
This book is going to introduce about more than 300 Chinese medical substances with illustrations and botanical pictures, including information on the Source, Explanation of Name, Habitat, Collection, Processing, Properties, Entered Channels, Characteristics, Actions, Clinical Applications, Dosage & Administration, Cautions & Contraindications, Ingredients and Pharmacological Research.
