Within the holistic framework of the Daoist way, Ronald H. Davis provides a comprehensive and straightforward guide to the principles and practice of actively living in harmony with the seasonal energetic changes throughout the year. The program focuses on the importance of Qigong, meditation, and diet to support good mental and physical health. The author includes clear explanations of the theory underlying this approach to a healthy life, including the Five Phases of Change (Five Elements) of Chinese Medicine, the body's Qi system of channels and reservoirs, and the concept of chronobiology. For each season he provides a Qigong specific for the season, meditations, herbal information, and dietary recommendations with simple recipes to support the functions of the organ in focus in that season. This accessible program of Qigong for the seasons will be of interest to anyone seeking a healthy life, students of Qigong at any level, and the seasonal emphasis makes this an excellent quick reference for Qigong teachers.
An authoritative and comprehensive account of the assessment and conservative management of temporomandibular disorders. Recent emphasis has been on 'evidence-based practice' at the expense of the clinical reality which should also take account of clinician expertise and patient preference. A sound research base is not always available.

It advocates clinical and evidence-informed practice - an approach which acknowledges the value of clinician experience and expertise as well as research findings. Compiled and edited by two highly regarded and experienced practitioners, researchers and authors who have already published many books and journal articles in the field. With contributions from a mix of 28 internationally-based clinicians and clinician-researchers allowing the text to highlight both current best evidence and clinicians' expertise and experience. Contributors include talented young clinicians as well as established experts in orthopaedic physiotherapy and world-level expert researchers.

This book is based on a revered collection, long ago considered lost, of three-hundred-year-old Tibetan thangkas: elaborate paintings that portray a philosophy of healing based on Buddhist beliefs, Ayurvedic practices and ancient shamanic traditions. Rendered by Tibet's foremost traditional artist, Romio Shrestha, using the age-old techniques of painting with rich materials such as gold and lapis lazuli, these breathtaking works reward the minutest contemplation. The Tibetan Art of Healing is also a practical guide to our search for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. With insights into such 'contemporary' ailments as stress, allergies and heart disease, and chapters devoted to aspects of sexual alchemy, rejuvenation and Tantric yoga, this wide-ranging study is an unprecendented journey into health and transformation, an astonishing volume as timely and revolutionary as it is sumptuous and exuberant.
An informative book on diet, nutrition, and how to make simple medicines the humoral way. Prior to the adoption of chemicals and minerals to cure illnesses 'introduced' to the body, medical experts understood that controlling humoral balance is central to healthfulness. Curing problems that originate 'within' the body, and preventing them from occurring in the first place, these learned people knew, are two sides of the same coin. Thus, good health is maintained by eating the right foods at the right time, and improved by taking individually-tailored simple but effective humoral medicines. Become Your Own Doctor does four things: It describes the nature of humorism, the humoral body and medicine - discussing why for centuries it was so important in maintaining good health and preventing illnesses; it explains how to easily recognise bodily imbalances in order to make informed choices about lifestyle, dietary regimes and medicines; it discusses the humoral characteristics and medical attributes of a wide range of commonly available foods; and it explains how to simply make a range of medicines that can be used both to protect the household from contracting illnesses and to help cure existing ones.

This book traces the genesis, principles and practice of homeopathy, and discusses the reasons for its enduring popularity. Two hundred years ago, medicine had little to offer except blood letting and the administration of violent purgatives - practices which shortened the course of illness by hastening the death of the patient. Largely in reaction to what he correctly saw as the brutality and ineffectiveness of the medicine of his day, the eighteenth century German physician Samuel Hahnemann developed a system of therapeutics that he termed homeopathy. Ironically, while modern medicine has changed beyond recognition, homeopathy, with its roots in alchemy and metaphysics, continues to be practiced precisely as it was in Hahnemann's day. Readers of this book will enjoy the story of homeopathy and its almost magical attraction, whilst learning much from the authors' rational and scientific discussion of the biological, chemical and psychological questions that this treatment raises.

A leading authority explains the origins and history of Chinese medicine from its beginnings in antiquity to today. Paul U. Unschuld describes medicine's close connection with culture and politics throughout Chinese history. He brings together texts, techniques, and worldviews to understand changing Chinese attitudes toward healing and the significance of traditional Chinese medicine in both China and the Western world. Unschuld reveals the emergence of a Chinese medical tradition built around a new understanding of the human being, considering beliefs in the influence of cosmology, numerology, and the supernatural on the health of the living. He describes the variety of therapeutic approaches in Chinese culture, the history of pharmacology and techniques such as acupuncture, and the global exchange of medical knowledge. Insights are offered into the twentieth-century decline of traditional medicine, as military defeats caused reformers and revolutionaries to import medical knowledge as part of the construction of a new China. Unschuld also recounts the reception of traditional Chinese medicine in the West since the 1970s, where it is often considered an alternative to Western medicine at the same time as China seeks to incorporate elements of its medical traditions into a scientific framework. This concise and compelling introduction to medical thought and history suggests that Chinese medicine is also a guide to Chinese civilization.
