Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most comprehensive, trusted, and user-friendly guide to Chinese traditional medicine is finally available in a handy paperback.

A perennial backlist bestseller in hardcover, Chinese Natural Cures remains the most complete and up-to-date book available in the Western world on the system and wisdom of Chinese medicine.

Traditional Chinese medicine is made up of four distinct methods of treatment: the use of herbs, acupuncture, the use of certain foods, and massage. Its practices can be used side-by-side with traditional Western medicine and have been growing steadily in popularity in the U.S. over the past decade. Written by world renowned practitioner Dr. Henry C. Lu, Chinese Natural Cures is a complete and user-friendly guide to the principals and methods of Chinese medicine. Included here are treatments for dozens of ailments and complaints such as body pains, digestive problems, sleep disorders, infertility, and more. An encyclopedic section on herbs includes the classification of all Chinese herbs and their application, and a comprehensive section on the Chinese system of food cures offers vital information on how a wide variety of foods can prevent or cure disease. Dozens of easy-to-follow charts organize all of this invaluable information for reference at a glance.

This handsomely designed new paperback edition is smaller and handier, and is sure to bring the traditions of Chinese medicine to an even wider audience.

Synopsis:

This giant book--528 pages, 6" wide and 13" tall--is the most comprehensive and luxurious book on the system and wisdom of Chinese traditional medicine yet published in the Western world. This tall, narrow, 1 1/2" thick volume is bound in exquisite Chinese satin.

With effective treatment that has withstood the test of time, Chinese Natural Cures is a comprehensive and infinitely useful compendium of health care advice. HMO's acceptance of alternative medicine has greatly increased interest in this book's techniques. From the common cold to insomnia to hypertension to arthritis, diagnosis sections recommend treatments that can be made in the home.

Readers will learn licorice cures for relief of abdominal pain, how to use pistachios to fight impotence, and grapes to promote longevity and strengthen bones--among hundreds of other age-old remedies. Whether you're suffering from a serious disease or simply want to achieve optimum health, Chinese Natural Cures will show you easy, proven methods to a healthier, longer life.
