Synopses & Reviews
Chinese Medicine for Maximum Immunity explores a unique diagnostic system that is the basis of traditional Chinese medicine. It teaches readers how to identify which of the five elements -- wood, fire, earth, metal, and water -- most influences their physical, emotional, and spiritual beings and which imbalances in these energies can lead to particular disorders, from common colds to life-threatening diabetes and cancer. The authors offer suggestions for restoring mind-body harmony and maintaining immunity and wellness, including stress-reduction techniques, dietary and exercise regimens, and the use of Chinese and Western herbs, nutritional supplements, and acupressure.
