Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I very much appreciated this book. Jaffee clearly explains many of the elements of Chinese medicine that I've wondered about for a long time. Thanks to "Simple Steps," I finally understand what Qi is all about, how acupuncture works, the Chinese view of the various organ systems and the mind-body connection. Plus, "Simple Steps" gave me several ideas for things I can do to deal with my particular health problems, which stem from too much stress. Among other tips, I learned which activities would be helpful and what foods would be best for me to eat. The book was enjoyable to read - it contains enough information and examples to be informative and useful but not so much that it bogs down. Perfect balance!

This is a great book if you are seeking to understand at a deeper, natural level how your body functions. It helps explains many of the common issues of modern daily life. We all have niggly symptoms that are a bit baffling to our medical providers. This helps make sense of many of them and gives a plan of action that is doable.

It is also a wonderful companion book for those who are being treated by a practitioner of Chinese medicine--acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, bodywork. It will spur good discussion with your provider. It also serves as a good resource for the provider to give to patients.

Lynn Jaffee has done a wonderful job of taking a very broad medicine and honing the information to a readable, straightforward text.

I read the entire book in one sitting. It was very interesting and answered many questions I had, but sometimes was too afraid to ask, about acupuncture. I found myself deeply engrossed in the sections which held information about my particular deficiencies. This book is a must-read for any current acupuncture patient, as well as any person curious or confused about the practice of acupuncture.

I loved using "Simple Steps" as a workbook! It empowered me to take
charge of my health. I'm now making sure I get more exercise and
eating foods that help my condition. I feel so much better, and I LOVE
feeling better without using prescription drugs.

This book gives an complicated explanation fo various kinds of Chinese medicine for the absolute novice. Iis not about self diagnosis but as the author say it is more of a primer.
