Abstract:

"For centuries, the Chinese have tapped the five elemental forces of nature - wood, fire, earth, metal, and water - to strengthen their bodies and minds. Not superstition, but rather a discipline rooted in observation and experiment, the Chinese approach to health is finding increased acceptance in the Western world. Acupuncture, homeopathy, and holistic medicine are now widely practiced alternatives or adjuncts to the technological approaches of the West."--BOOK JACKET. "Now Chinese Medicine for Beginners makes this time-tested tradition accessible to you. Whether you are simply seeking the proper yin-yang balance in your own life or are a practitioner seeking alternative treatments for those in your care, this book can show you the way."--BOOK JACKET.
