R237 R194 Discovery Miles 1 940 Save R43 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

People are increasingly looking to alternatives to Western medicine and here is a practical self-help guide to a balanced and positive lifestyle. Tao, the most ancient and fundamental element in the world's oldest civilisation, is as relevant to today's world as to classical China. For the contemporary reader, this accessible book is the first to explore, in the light of the findings of modern Western science, the balanced and holistic system of health care used by Chinese physicians, martial artists and meditators for over 5,000 years. Exploring the ancient teachings of characters such as The Yellow Emperor and The Plain Girl, Daniel Reid lights the path to sexual fulfilment. The instructions of the Way of Yin and Yang 'serve as signposts along the winding road to a woman's orgasm, and' - says the author - 'every man should learn to read them.' In The Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity, Daniel Reid has combined his personal experience with original research and in an accessible, informed and often anecdotal style he presents the issues and answers of practical concern to a Western audience. The book covers every aspect of health with concise information on diet and nutrition, fasting, breathing and exercise, medicine, meditation and sexual yoga.

A comprehensive guide to addressing the growing epidemic of thyroid disease from the perspective of the Ayurvedic tradition In this comprehensive guide for practitioners and those concerned with thyroid health, Marianne Teitelbaum, D.C., integrates the ancient medicine of Ayurveda with modern scientific findings to address the growing epidemic of thyroid disease. Revealing how the thyroid is the victim of many factors that conspire to create ill health--and how many cases of thyroid disease go undiagnosed--Teitelbaum focuses not only on treating thyroid problems and symptoms but also on diagnosing them at their earliest, most reversible stages. She outlines the basic principles of Ayurveda, including pulse diagnosis, a key tool for early detection, and explains the successful treatment protocols she has developed over more than 30 years of Ayurvedic practice. She details the underlying reasons for thyroid malfunction, such as inflammation, malnutrition, and toxins, and how the thyroid is connected with the health of the rest of body, including the liver and gall bladder. She explores the Ayurvedic treatment of thyroid-related conditions, such as Hashimoto's disease, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism, offering guidance on the targeted use of herbs, specific dietary recommendations, proper detoxification, and Ayurvedic recipes. She also includes treatments and remedies for common symptoms of thyroid disease, including insomnia, depression, fatigue, and osteoporosis, as well as for luxurious hair growth and weight loss. Based on the treatment of more than 90,000 patients, this book also shares success stories of thyroid healing and the scientific studies that support the author's Ayurvedic thyroid protocols. Offering an easy-to-follow yet comprehensive guide, Teitelbaum shows that optimum thyroid health as well as overall health are within everyone's reach.

The increasing prevalence of diabetes mellitus world-wide is an issue of major socio-economic concern. Scientific interest in plant-derived medicine is steadily rising, yet there is often a wide disparity in the caliber of information available. A detailed compilation of scientific information from across the globe, Traditional Medicines for Modern Times: Antidiabetic Plants highlights the potential role of dietary and medicinal plant materials in the prevention, treatment, and control of diabetes and its complications. The book not only describes plants traditionally used to treat diabetes, but evaluates the scientific studies on these plants and describes in vitro, in vivo, and clinical methods for their investigation. It examines the theory that changes in dietary patterns from traditional plant foodstuffs containing beneficial components, to richer, more processed "junk" food is responsible for the increased prevalence of diabetes worldwide. The book begins with an introduction to the disease diabetes mellitus written by a consultant physician and an up-to-date, detailed summary table and discussion of scientifically screened antidiabetic plants compiled by authors from the Jodrell Laboratories, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, UK. The next chapters provide an outline of clinical, in vivo, and in vitro methods for assessing antidiabetic activity of plant materials, followed by descriptions of traditional plant remedies used in Asia, the Americas, Africa, Europe, and Australia written by an international group of authors active in antidiabetic plant research. The final chapters emphasize the role of particular phytochemical groups in the treatment or prevention of diabetes. By documentingboth traditional and scientifically derived knowledge, Traditional Medicines for Modern Times: Antidiabetic Plants brings us closer to the translation of traditional knowledge into new methods for treatment of this important disease.
