Used as a reference by acupuncture students, it is a heavy, truly complete guide to the theory and healing power of Chinese medicine.It is also a primer on nutrition–including facts about green foods, such as spirulina and blue-green algae, and the u0022regenerating dietsu0022 used by patients with cancer and arthritis–with a source of inspiration cookbook with over 300 mainly vegetarian, nutrient packaged recipes.Information on Chinese medicine is useful to help diagnose health imbalances, especially emerging diseases.This is intelligently paired with the overall food program, because the Chinese have attributed the healthful properties of balancing for food, so you can adjust your diet to help relieve the symptoms of illness.For example, Chinese medicine states that someone with low energy and a pale complexion (yin deficiency) would have the advantage of avoiding bitter and increasing u0022sweetu0022 foods based on soya, black sesame seeds, parsnips, rice and oats.(Note that the Chinese definition of sweet foods is very different from that of Americans.) Pitchford said in his dedication that he hopes that the reader will find u0022healing, conscience and peaceu0022 in the rest of his program.The diet is certainly acetic acid by U. S. standards (no alcohol, caffeine, white flour, fried foods, or sugar, and a minimum of eggs and dairy products) but the reasons it gives for avoiding these u0022negative energyu0022 foods are convincing.From the adrenal damage conferred by coffee to an immune dysfunction caused by excess refined sugar, Pitchford pushes you to rethink all food choices and their ultimate influence on your health.Without being alarmist,u0022he adds dietary advice to protect you from the dangers of modern life, including neutralizing the damage of water fluoridation (of the thyroid and immune system, problems could arise; fluoride is a carcinogen)There is no longer any reading on food combinations, women’s health, heart disease, pregnancy, fasting, and weight loss.Overall, it is a wonderful book for any person, from the beginning to the end.
