As a clinical dietitian with a Master's Degree in Nutritional Sciences and a western training apporach to medical therapies, I found many new insights into the connections between illness and health; and the connectedness of mental, spiritual, and physical health. While TCM medicine may seem archaic, or a type of folk medicine, the reality is TCM is thousands of years old and quite sophisticated. Kaptchuk provides references to much of the research, both in China and the west, regarding the efficacy of Chinese Medicine. The book is packed with references.
Whether you are a casual reader simply interested in the basic concepts of Chinese Medicine, or you are a beggining student of TCM, this book is a great resource.
This book has provided new insights on my own health issues as well those of my clients. I highly recommend it.
This is a WONDERFUL resource! It de-mystifies all the hearsay about TCM, including meridians, 5 element theory, chi, acupuncture, artwork of the orient, and how they all interrelate.
If you are curious, and are looking for an interesting, well-written book on TCM then LOOK NO FURTHER!
I only gave it 4 stars because this is NOT "light reading". It is intense. Use a high-lighter, and a pencil to make notes in the margins for future reference.
