Power of the Five Elements

I have a new book coming out, Power of the Five Elements; The Chinese Medicine Path to Healthy Aging and Stress Resistance. It can be pre-ordered from North Atlantic Books and will be released April 6th,2010. Based on my thirty years of medical practice, Power of the Five Elements presents the Five Adaptation Types, a modern application of the Five Elements of Chinese medicine to reduce the stress response and prevent chronic disease.

The five types allow readers to identify through questionnaires and case histories their own energetic patterns for adaptation and to create strategies for reducing stress and improving health. Focusing on the fact that maintaining health and preventing stress-induced diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, requires adapting successfully to changing circumstances, Power of the Five Elements offers a range of behavioral changes and exercises such as meditations and visualizations to enhance adaptive responses. It is essential reading for anyone under stress or at risk for chronic disease.
