4.0 out of 5 stars Great broad introduction to the health "secrets" of the Far East., September 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Simple Chinese Medicine: A Beginner's Guide to Natural Healing & Well-Being (Paperback)
As a long-time practitioner of martial arts, tai chi, and a believer of Eastern healing methods, I truly appreciated Dr. Kuhns overview of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Dr. Kuhn not only does a great job of explaining the "whys and hows", but she also does a very good job of promoting the very mentality that is the critical component of Eastern approach to healing and medicine that Westerners, and Western medicine is deficient.

As another reviewer stated, Dr. Kuhn's writing style comes across as friendly and conversational. Her struggle with writing in English is somewhat apparent, but by no means off-putting; her thoughts are delivered, statements made are clear and succinct. Some, as myself, may prefer a more scientific approach when it comes to backing up certain claims or statements about TCM. In this case, detailed and direct references could have been made in the text, rather than leaving the reader searching the appendices. However, I recognize that this style may not necessarily appeal to general readers.

Finally, one of the more useful components of Dr. Kuhn's work is the addition of an appendix featuring healthy Asian recipes. If you've ever wondered how to cook "Chinese" food, and how all those wonderful flavors are blended, then this Appendix offers a great place to start learning how to combine spices, sauces, and oils, in addition to simply offering healthy meals.
