This practical, fully illustrated handbook is the second in our series on dermatological diseases and their treatment with Chinese herbal medicine by Sabine Schmitz. This volume examines the cause and treatment of acne and rosacea from a Chinese medicine perspective and provides advice for practitioners on their treatments in their daily practice.

It covers prescriptions and treatment options for all types of acne, rosacea and TCM syndromes, detailed case studies and colour photographs of the skin and tongue for precise diagnosis. The book also contains instructions on external applications such as pastes, washes or ointments, as well as detailed diet instructions and advice.

Easy to read, use and navigate, Treating Acne and Rosacea with Chinese Herbal Medicine is the perfect resource for anyone treating skin diseases in their daily practice, regardless of their specialization.


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.

By far the best book on acne and rosacea treatment with Chinese Medicine. What makes it a real treasure is the integrative approach, giving insights not only in the Chinese Medicine´s point of view but also into Western standard care.
