Student tcmDiag

Introducing the Student Version of Pocket tcmDiag 1.0

Welcome to Student tcmDiag. This software is a subset of the Standard tcmDiag version and is intended for budget-conscious students or professionals who still want access to this powerful diagnosis database software. The student version contains the same 19 8.5x11 pages of information that is also packed into the standard tcmDiag

For each diagnosis there are 7 separate sections or pages to help guide you to the information you need. There is a "General Signs and Symptoms" section, "Etiology / Disease Cause" section, "Western Diagnosis" section which lists similar western diseases that roughly correspond to the TCM diagnosis, "Differential Diagnosis" section to help you separate a particular diagnosis from others, "Treatment Principles" section to help guide your priorities of treatment, "Formulas" section which contains some representative Chinese Herbal formulas to threat the given diagnosis, and a "Points" section which lists representative points for the disorder.

You will then have a complete reference at your fingertips including many powerful searching and retrieval features such as: Single Search, Quick Search List, and List All.


  • Gen. S/S page: This page includes a drop down box listing all the Zang-Fu syndromes and also includes a comprehensive list of the Zang-Fu syndrome Signs and Symptoms, and Tongue and Pulse presentations

  • Etiology page: This page includes the various conditions, disorders or situations that can cause each particular syndrome

  • Western page: This page includes some common Western diagnosis that roughly correlate with the given Zang-Fu syndromes

  • Diff. Diag. page: This page will help aid you in differentiating a given Zang-Fu syndrome with other syndromes that have similar presentations

  • Treat. Prin. page: This page includes the common TCM treatment principles needed to resolve the Zang-Fu syndrome

  • Formulas page: This page includes the most common clinical formulas used to treat the syndrome

  • Points page: This page lists the most common and some not-so-common / special points used in treatments for each syndrome

  • <- AND ->: These buttons allow you to navigate the various pages like you would a web page with a web browser using the Back and Forward buttons

  • Results page: This page stores the results of your last search in a nice, organized, sorted list. One click of a syndrome takes you right to it! This list also allows you to compare and contrast different syndromes based on your searching criteria without having to re-run a search.

  • Single Search: This allows you to search for ANY text in your database. So, finding all the syndromes that, have "Dizziness" as a symptom, is a snap. tcmDiag will produce a "Results" list of all the Syndromes that contain your search term AND which page the search term was found on - then from there, a single click brings you right to that page. Fast and easy or what?

  • Quick Search List: This unique feature gives you the ability to store your frequently typed search terms. Then with two clicks, you can run the search again, all without re-typing which saves you a tremendous amount of time especially when you are with a patient

  • List All: This button provides you with a organized and sorted list of all the Syndromes in your database

  • TcmDiag also incorporates Zap Power-Off, so you can either exit tcmDiag or Turn Off your device, all from the Menu. Saving a lot of wear-and-tear on your Power Button.
