In traditional Chinese medicine, formula presentation (方证) is the key to understanding how to apply herbal medicine, therefore its study should be emphasised. A formula presentation encompasses the understanding of the original line(s) that mention(s) the formula, the corresponding disease pattern, clinical symptoms and body constitution, as well the findings of abdominal examination.
In particular, the study of the relationship between the original line(s) and clinical symptoms is the key to enhancing accuracy in the application of a formula and extending its clinical use. Paying attention to these details is a sure way to both enhance clinical efficacy and ensure safety.
