A User's Manual for the Human Body - How Traditional Chinese Medicine helps the body to heal itself (Paperback): Alex Wu A User's Manual for the Human Body - How Traditional Chinese Medicine helps the body to heal itself (Paperback)

The User's Manual is a transformative guide to the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine for the 21st century, showing how these differ from those underlying Western medicine, what that means in practice and how we can help our bodies to heal themselves and thereby achieve a longer, healthier life. Books about TCM tend to be thousands of years old, very detailed and without reference to contemporary scientific knowledge. As a former computer engineer, Alex Wu draws parallels between the way a computer functions and the functioning of the human body in order to interpret the key concepts within Chinese medicine so that they become significantly easier to understand for today's readers. As he explains, Chinese medicine provides a dramatically different point of view to that of Western medicine, in particular its foundation belief that the body has a powerful self-healing system that must be nurtured and encouraged, not stifled with symptom-suppressing treatments. Taking the simple examples of gout, psoriasis, the common cold and today's obesity epidemic, the author explores the TCM and conventional medical approaches, showing how promoting body energy and self-healing can resolve the `incurable'. Alex Wu says: `Many readers have used the simple methods described in this book to achieve a healthy lifestyle and thereby improve their health within a short time... Modern medicine has not made significant advances in many chronic conditions for many years. It may be that the problem stems from its basic philosophy.' Here is an opportunity to look at health and medicine from a completely different point of view.

In addition to herbalism and acupuncture, Chinese Medicine has a rich tradition of using stones as medicine, passed from generation to generation for thousands of years. In this comprehensive guide and extensive Materia Medica, Leslie J. Franks presents the Stone Medicine teachings of Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen, an 88th generation Taoist priest from the ancient lineage of the Jade Purity School, which dates to the Han dynasty, 206 BCE. Detailing the therapeutic properties of 200 gems, stones, minerals, and crystals, Franks explains the physical, emotional, and spiritual conditions each stone can treat and how their color, form, hardness, and energetic qualities affect us according to Chinese Medicine. She examines the chemistry and sacred geometry of crystal structure, revealing how the minerals contained in the stones affect our physiology by supporting our Jing (Essence); by nourishing Qi (energy), blood, and fluids; and by clearing Wind, Cold, Damp, and Heat conditions that can lead to disease. Including a thorough primer on Traditional Chinese Medicine and backed by modern scientific research, this book explains how stones access our deepest layers, vibrating ever so slowly, to initiate deep lasting change.

Tapping, or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), is a simple form of acupressure that treats the energetic roots of emotional and physical suffering. By tapping on specific meridian points you can quickly and easily dissolve blockages in the body's energy system, caused by past traumas and suppressed emotions such as grief and anger, and restore the natural flow of energy in your body, the key to optimal health and overall well-being. In this step-by-step guide to EFT, Sophie Merle details the practice of tapping, illustrating the easily accessible points on the face, hands, and torso to tap and in what order. Explaining how to open your energetic system to EFT treatment for fast and long-lasting results, she reveals how the energetic psychology of tapping can be applied to any area of your life but is particularly effective for emotional and psychological conditions, including panic attacks, anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief, anger, jealousy, and phobias, such as stage fright or fear of flying, providing immediate results in many cases. She also shows how this method can treat chronic pain, nausea, and headaches; alleviate insomnia and nightmares; assist physical healing from illness; encourage the release of painful memories; boost self-confidence; support weight loss; and improve concentration.

R2,555 Discovery Miles 25 550 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

An indefatigable discoverer and preserver of lost traditions in the field of classical Chinese medicine, Liu Lihong has done it again - The Yellow Emperor's Inner Transmission of Acupuncture features a passionate and clinically relevant synthesis of his discipleship with Yang Zhenhai, one of the last remaining master practitioners of Daoist acupuncture in mainland China. At the forefront of an international discourse on the definition and clinical significance of classical Chinese medicine, Yang and Liu promote yet another holistic medical system that radically contrasts the current penchant for symptom-oriented procedures. This English edition of their book lifts an important esoteric acupuncture lineage out of obscurity and presents it to us in complete and accessible form. The holistic approach has also defined Liu's relentless search for the heart of Chinese medicine during the last three decades, driving his commitment to become the promoter of a diverse spectrum of healing traditions that exemplify the classical standards of Chinese medicine.

On Being a Five Element Acupuncturist (Paperback): Nora Franglen On Being a Five Element Acupuncturist (Paperback)

R369 Discovery Miles 3 690 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

What does it mean to 'be' an acupuncturist? How does a highly experienced acupuncturist view her practice, her patients, and the world in general? Based on her widely-read blog about the wholeness of life as a Five Element practitioner, Nora Franglen's breadth of interest shows how the curiosity and life experiences of the individual lie at the heart of what makes a true acupuncturist, over and beyond the necessary knowledge and expertise in the technicalities of practice. From her penchant for coffee shops to reflections on challenges she has experienced in the clinic, Nora illustrates how the Five Elements influence, illuminate and, ultimately, enrich all aspects of her life, and vice versa. With reflections gathered from over several years of posting linked by Nora's commentary, this diary is truly enlightening reading for anyone interested in the inner workings of a practitioner at one with her craft.

An understanding of acupoints is vital not only for acupuncturists but also for bodyworkers. This user-friendly manual contains current, comprehensive information that is equally useful for physiotherapists, orthopaedic, medical, and paramedical professionals.

In addition, it explains the optimum physical position for treatment via acupuncture, acupressure, and other strategies, as treatment positions can vary according to the method of point stimulation and desired result. The book also documents the distribution of sensation resulting from point stimulation, and differentiates between pressure and needle application where appropriate. * All channel points included * Beautiful auricular acupuncture chart * Detailed index with more than 10,000 entries which includes symptoms, conditions, and Chinese syndromes * New protocols and points selection appendices * Chinese medical and general index * Anatomy index which includes muscles, bones, blood vessels, and nerves * New techniques added A Practical Guide to Acupoints presents a wealth of carefully researched information equally valuable for professionals, students, and conscientious practitioners, making this the most complete practical guide to acupoints ever produced.

Combines healing crystal therapy with the "organ clock" circadian rhythm of each organ system, based on traditional Chinese medicine
- Examines 12 organ systems and the gemstones best suited for addressing their health
- Provides the key to understanding the organ clock's function and its ability to enhance both diagnosis and treatment
One of the chief tools in the traditional Chinese doctor's toolbox is an understanding of the circadian rhythms that govern all the organ systems of the body. In addition to facilitating early and accurate diagnosis, this "organ clock" lets the practitioner apply therapies to the organ's meridians when they are at their peak functioning point, thereby eliciting the greatest benefit.
In this book authors Michael Gienger and Wolfgang Maier have created a simple, yet highly effective self-care treatment system for addressing common health ailments using gemstones and the organ clock. They detail the healing benefits of 83 crystals, indicating the physical as well as emotional, psychic, and spiritual aspects they support in each of 12 major organ systems. For example, the stomach not only receives nourishment for the body, it also fosters the ability to engage in new things in life. Agate and calcite assist this function by giving confidence for new experiences, while aiding in digestion (and processing hard to digest thoughts). Treatments for the stomach should be done between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m., the time we typically take in new nourishment after a night of sleep, to receive maximum results. With each body system in turn, the authors explain how to select the stones best suited to address your current health concerns, the times of day they should be used, and how long treatment should last in order to restore optimum health and prevent the onset of future illness.
