For the first time, TCM Phyto makes the study of traditional Chinese phytotherapy, which has been developed systematically by Professor Hempen over many years, readily accessible to a wide range of users. Approximately 400 traditional Chinese medicines and over 250 traditional Chinese recipes are available. Each individual remedy and prescription is presented in a detailed monograph, with its effect systematically described throughout. Moreover, you can listen to every name in Chinese. A full-text search finds medicines and recipes quickly and easily by scanning the database of over 15,000 symptoms.

TCM Phyto is a unique source of knowledge that encompasses the entire contents of several standard works. The app can be used anywhere in the world thanks to its multi-language feature (German, English, Chinese and Pinyin), which enables the user to switch languages at any time. It also offers a graphical interface for entering Chinese characters.

Further TCM apps by Professor Hempen on diagnosis and acupuncture are scheduled for release in the future.

This is an well designed app. The search function is very easy to use and provides adequate information.

Meanwhile I wish more prescriptions added. And hopefully I could create my personal prescriptions.
