Introducing tcmHerbs 4 for Windows

tcmHerbs - Brief Summary of Features

tcmHerbs is geared towards the needs of Acupuncture Professionals, Alternative Medicine Practitioners, as well as Students of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This software will allow you to search, manage, and modify a database of herbs and their associated pictures. tcmHerbs includes a free starter educational database with 215 Chinese Medicinal Herbs across 31 categories and a high-resolution Color Photo of each herb. With the help of a powerful Import feature you can begin Entering / Importing data you may already have or just start with the included database.

Due to many requests for software in this field, we have created a version of tcmHerbs for those who do not have or want to use a mobile device or phone version of this software. This allows many opportunities to break away from the limited interfaces and resources of those types of devices. This software will run on your Windows 7, Vista, XP, etc. desktop as a stand-alone version of the product.

tcmHerbs includes a lot of features and functionality, here is a short breakdown:

  • Includes a free educational herbal database containing 215 of the most popular Chinese Herbs, most of which are included as part of the California State Acupuncture Licensing Exam (CA State Boards) and the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists & Oriental Medicine Exams (NCCAOM / Nationals). You can Modify, Delete, and/or Add your own.
    • The free herbal database includes:

Easy, just highlight "Clear Heat" and press Ctrl+F (Search) and Instantly you will have a list with several herbs that share this function, such as: Lu Gen, Shi Gao, etc.
