Today I want to give you a book recommendation. I absolutely love reading books and I love when others share some of the books that has really made an impression on them and learned them something, and I hope you can find some inspiration as well through the book recommendations that I give here on my blog.
The book ‘Chinese Holistic Medicine‘* by Steven Cardoza is a great book if you are interested in holistic health and how to heal the body with more natural means and before diseases starts to rise, thereby with a more preventative focus.
Holisme means to look at the whole person, both mentally and physically. To figure out what is causing the imbalance and which bodysystems that are getting affected and thereby figure out what have created the underlying reason for the disharmony or sickness that is occurring in the body. Thereafter, the holistic praxis uses this information to help the person to get back into balance again. But the holistic praxis also has focus on prevention – they will rather focus on giving advices for diet, lifestyle etc. which will help a person prevent any diseases from arising, and not just treat the sickness once it is there.
I am such a big believer of this way of thinking. Because why wait until we are sick to do something, if we can do small things in our everyday life which can help prevent us from becoming sick in the first place?
“Chinese medicine is holistic and takes the whole person – body, mind, emotions and spirit – into account, instead of just focusing on the visible sickness“
If you are interested in topics such as:
- The Qi flow
- Yin & Yang
- Emotions and their influence on our health
- Herbal medicine
.. then this is the book for you. It covers all the basics of traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is really interesting and fascinating.
