The art of radiant health has been widely practiced for thousands of years by the people of the East. In China, you will find that this healthcare art has permeated virtually every corner of life. Tonic teas, foods and wine are familiar to and appreciated by all the people of the East. But Westerners may find them mysterious, inconceivable and somehow ridiculous. Ron Teeguarden's book provides a powerful glass through which you in the West can easily spy on the secrets of the Chinese healthcare arts. The classical Chinese philosophies and theories on nature and the human body may be the biggest obstacle for Westerners to learning and practicing a program for radiant health. With his profound knowledge about Chinese civilization, the author of this book has successfully kicked the big stone away and can therefore lead the readers smoothly into the great palace of Chinese radiant health. This book discusses in detail the major principles of tonic herbalism, all of the major herbs used, formulations and the attitude of radiant health. A Book of the Month Club's selection.
