Not only does this book provide a practical path to a deeper understanding of the treatment of acne and rosacea, but it does so in a way that is both learned and accessible. Ms. Schmitz introduces, explains and teases out complex concepts with clarity. As a practitioner who regularly treats skin conditions, I find the addition of her case studies to be a generous and invaluable tool allowing all who read this fine book the opportunity to greatly improve their clinical outcomes.
Skin diseases - especially those affecting the face - can be the cause of real suffering. While modern medicine is often ineffective in treating them, Chinese medicine often excels. This wonderful book by Sabine Schmitz offers practitioners the tools to benefit countless patients and is a gift to the profession.
Sabine has written another great clinical guide for TCM dermatology. Treating Acne and Rosacea with Chinese Herbal Medicine is packed with useful practical information, case studies, good quality illustrations, external applications and pharmacological research. A great resource for practitioners and students.
