Very useful book, serves as a guide to supertonics used in traditional Chinese Medicine that nourish the three treasures of Jing, Qi and Shen, to some of the most popular and widely-used classic tonic and regulatory formulas used in TCM, as well as to the author's own formulas that are sold through his company Dragon Herbs.

This book is a continuation on Mr. Teeguardens initial book "Chinese Tonic Herbs". Here again he manages to simplify the complex world of herbs for the layman

This book is a continuation on Mr. Here again he manages to simplify the complex world of herbs for the layman. Passing on information rare at best within the herbalist communities. Tonic Formula's" are common but not quite yet here in the west. I hope that with time, they will be as common place in American homes as Asparirn is today. If you are interested in learning a alternative to "post-medicine" care, and would actually like to prevent things from happening, this is your book.

With his 20 years of herbal expertise, Ron Teeguarden is the man celebrities rely on to improve their energy, put a glow on their skin, even renew their sexual vigor. Here he's written a fine and thorough introduction to the theory and art of tonic herbs. Anyone who's seen Woody Allen's Alice may be a bit leery, but there's more philosophy and science to these herbs than the hocus-pocus that the uninformed may associate them with. Although this book has great descriptions of the herbs and their uses, it lacks the implementational aspects which are critical to using the herbs! The truth is: this book is a marketing tool for the Author's herbal supplement line.

With the aim of demystifying the ancient and effective Chinese herbal method of health care, Ron Teeguarden identifies over 70 powerful herbs and explains how they work. He demonstrates how certain formulas can promote longevity, beauty, mental energy and fertility and libido.

Physical health, this book explains, is irrelevant if it is accompanied by unhappiness and failure. Herbal expert Ron Teeguarden explains how to apply natural Chinese herbal medicine in order to lead a full and energetic life.

OK...I read MANY of the review of this and prior versions of this book, and thought, based on those reviews, that this would be a great place for me to finally get TCM under by belt. Well, SOME of that assertion is true. It was incredibly redundant. I think the book could be 50% smaller with better editing. This book is pretty pricey to be primarily a catalog of Dragon Herb products.

Example: he would mention when talking about his specific formulas that that specific herb was covered in a particular chapter, name the chapter, then start telling you about that herb AGAIN. This happened over and over and over. It left out what the Jenon formulas are, and mentioned a skin care line with ginseng stem cells that isn't on his site, nor does it show up in the search engines.

Has it helped me to decide what Dragon Herbs product I might try? Yes, that it did. That is what saved it from being a 2 Star review. However, this book relates only the very basics of TCM - and those were not related where they were crystal clear to me. So, I will be looking for something to really fill in the puzzle, something that isn't brand driven.

Interesting...that not once did he mention patent formulas by OTHER reputable brands, like Min Shin. Guess that would be defeating the purpose. This is just a start. You might look elsewhere for your first book to demystify the subject, that is unless you specifically want to learn about Dragon Herbs formulas.

Good book, clear well written, well organized, plenty of information with one big drawback:
I used Western herbs in the past, most of them I gather or grow in my garden. However I cannot do this using the book.
First the formulas are very complicated with a lot of herbs involved, aren't there simpler formulas with less ingredients (the countryfolks may have used simplified versions)?
Some herbs need preparation, the book does not give recipes how to prepare them.
The formulas mentioned come without quantities so anyway you cannot mix them your own.
Is Chinese medicine nothing for laypersons?
However there is a lengthy description on how to make a decoction - I have got basic kitchen knowledge.
But overall this is still a decent book and I don't regret having it in my bookshelf.

Great book all around for beginner, intermediate or experienced herbalist. Note to buyers that this book is the SAME as 'Radiant Health'. I mistakenly purchased both and did not know that this one was just published with a new publisher. I will keep both, one is paperback and the other is hardback.

I don't mind that the author lists the functions and ingredients in his own formulations. The website is nice but its great to have a resource to look up the formulations and what their function is even if not online. He also lists alternatives to his formulations when recommending tonics for specific needs.

The main focus of the book is reference to the tradition tonic formulas for each treasure and how to combine them for a specific goal. With all the herb books out there this is one that should be on every serious herbalist's shelf.

I bought this book because I had seen a free video of Ron Teeguarden online at a conference put on by David Wolfe. I was highly impressed with Ron. He's had training in herbalism (and other subjects such as meditation and breathing exercises, which are not discussed in this book) from a number of Asian teachers, including Daoist Master Sung Jin Park. I hadn't realized it, but the traditional teachings is that certain of the "premier" Chinese herbs can have profound vitalizing effects, and can retard aging. The book gives an overview of the traditional Chinese teaching about jing (physical reserves of the body), chi (energy), and shen (the "light" of consciousness) which I had heard from an acupuncturist but didn't know much about. Certain herbs, when consumed, have the ability to increase one or more these if they have been depleted, or maintain them. Some herbs have a "bidirectional" effect on various physical conditions, i.e., lowering blood pressure if it is high, and raising it if it is low. I enjoyed reading this book.

His book has the recommendation of three Chinese Ph.D.s, two of whom are or were professors at China Pharmaceutical University, and have a string of other academic credentials, and a president (probably former president by now - the book was written in 1998).

This excellent book gives thorough explanations of the properties of top Chinese tonic herbs. A must have for anyone truly interested in Chinese herbology and medicine. I make my own tinctures and extracts using the quality herbs I order from East Earth Trade Winds and save tons of money over purchasing the very expensive extracts offered by various companies. And I know what goes into my own extracts and can control their ingredients and strength.
Another very worthwhile book is A Handbook of Chinese Healing Herbs by Daniel Reid. True health can be achieved and maintained using Chinese herbs with a bit of study and experimentation.

This is an excellent resource for Chinese Tonic Herbalism. Very informative w/ detailed information on safety and efficacy on various tonic herbs. This book also provides as great reference for certain conditions and their corresponding treatments. Ron Teeguarden has done a wonderful job sharing his knowledge.
