The objective of Traditional Chinese Medicine is to restore harmony to the body, mind and spirit by balancing the Yin and the Yang and by regulating the Qi - the vital energy - that flows through out bodies along fourteen meridians. Chinese doctors believe that it is possible to improve the Qi, enhance the body's immunity and increase energy levels and longevity.
This authoritative and fully comprehensive encyclopedia is a guide to the four main branches of Chinese medicine: herbalism, food cures, acupuncture and manipulative therapy. Edited by Dr Duo Gao, one of the world's leading authorities on TCM, with contributions by a team of Californian specialists and academics, the book provides in-depth analysis of this holistic medical system, together with practical information and self-care instruction, including the arts of Qi Gong and T'ai Chi. Throughout the book special emphasis is paced on preventative medicine, which is a key aspect of Chinese medicine.
