The Compendium of Materia Medica, also known by the romanizations Bencao Gangmu or Pen-tsao Kang-mu, is a Chinese
materia medica work written by Li Shizhen during the Ming Dynasty. The Compendium of Materia Medica is regarded as the
most complete and comprehensive medical book ever written in the history of traditional Chinese medicine. It is called
as the Encyclopedia of China by Darwin. It lists all the plants, animals, minerals, and other items that were believed
to have medicinal properties.
Based on the original work, this app makes some innovation. With over hundreds of pictures of various herbs, this app introduces over a hundred of herbal medicine from the following aspects: functions, usage and dosage, properties, tastes, etc. There are also several simple prescriptions, users could know the medicine comprehensively and could even cure some common seen diseases by themselves! The pictures are of great value, and they are useful for people to explore the herbs in the wild. Anyway, this app is perfect for people to learn Chinese traditional medicine.
Very useful app, and I depend on this app as my herb “bible”!
I download this app looking for a complete reference for herbals for my family, and it didn’t let me down!
This app about herbal medicine isn’t dull at all! I have learned much about the herbal medicine!
