5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bringing the body back to health, naturally 5 juin 2013
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur

Michelle O'Shaughnessy brings to our attention - at least to our Western attention - the mysteries and centuries long aspects of Chinese medicine. She opens her book with a brief but cogent history of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Classical Chinese Medicine, enlightening us that today's TCM is a combination of Western medicine with the treasures of TCM (acupuncture, herbs and dietary recommendations). She then advances to the concept of Qi (a vital energy flow in the universe) that is the foundation of her book about caring for the integument. `If we eat healthy foods that are full of nutrients and drink fluids that are beneficial to our bodies, we are taking in good qi that will keep our bodies functioning at optimal levels. However, if we eat non-nutritious foods and drink a lot of soda or other drinks with empty calories, we are not taking in good qi. In the long run we will feel tired, stressed and worn out. This qi that we acquire throughout our lives that eventually takes over for our heavenly qi is known as acquired qi. This is the qi that is made healthy or unhealthy by the food and drink we take into our bodies.' And she explains how the use of acupuncture and herbs can restore our youthful qi. From there she explains Yin and Yang, the Tongue diagnoses, and the concept of Meridians as a means of diagnosing and approaching the health forms by understanding the flow of the many meridians in the body in one of the most assured and accessible descriptions available to Western readers.

She then discusses the significance of the Five Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water) and the knowledge she shares here about the aspects of each as they apply to our body is very easy to understand. A last category to understand is the concepts of the Seasons and this is where she delves into skin conditions in particular. O'Shaughnessy introduces the wide spectrum of Chinese herbs, what they do, how to find them and how to use them. Acupuncture, especially the benefits for healing skin problems (in concert with all of the above mentioned aspects of Chinese medicine) is carefully discussed with ample warnings to search for an acupuncturist who is well trained and qualified.

As for the purpose of this book she describes an `acupuncture facelift' in a manner that incorporates all that has come before: `The facial acupuncture treatment is based on principles of traditional Chinese medicine and, as in standard acupuncture, involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face, ear, neck, hands, trunk and legs. Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of energy in the body. Treatment is customized to target the underlying deficiencies of the body that are contributing to aging and acupuncture is used to stimulate blood circulation up to the face. When the needles are inserted into the fine lines of the face, it causes a sort of micro-trauma to the skin causing the skin to produce more protein. This plumps up the skin, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.'

All of this is but a brief overview of the material in this book (we haven't even discussed the techniques of healing Massage!). Suffice it to say that there is so much information here that applies not only to the skin but also to the general health of the body - a fact that makes Eastern Medicine seem in many ways far superior to basic Western Medicine - that a review cannot do it justice. There is much to learn here, much to incorporate into your desire for a healthy body and appearance. And Michelle O'Shaughnessy writes so well that even doubters will find credibility in her thoughts. Grady Harp, June 13

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Most Enlightening Book 8 juin 2013
Par Marilyn Meredith - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This was not a topic I'd have chosen to read, but I was gifted the book and I read anything that passes within range.

What an eye-opener. I knew nothing about Chinese medicine and there is far more about Chinese medicine than how to improve one's skin. Being of a certain age (pretty darn old), I don't know how much of what is in this book will help my skin, but I'm going to try some of the suggestions.

The book begins with the history of Chinese medicine which I found interesting. There are drawings, explanations and tips about many area of the body including tongue diagnosis.

Most interesting for me was the information about Chinese herbs, herbal medicines, acupuncture, and cleansing soups with easy to follow recipes--though the ingredients may mean finding an Oriental market.

This is an easy to understand and well-organized how-to for anyone wanting to try something new to not only improve her skin but also general health.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An alternative approach to healing 7 juin 2013
Par J. Chambers - Publié sur

There was a time when I would have pooh-poohed the concepts that traditional Chinese medicine are based on. Things like qi energy, yin and yang, and meridians seemed like so much pseudoscientific gobbledygook. Then, in 1998, I traveled to Beijing as a tourist. Prior to leaving home, I met a Chinese lady online who lived in Beijing and wanted to become a professional tourguide. She offered her guide/interpreter services in exchange for the opportunity to improve her English. Having her with me every day when I went out sightseeing was great, but what I learned after arriving was that she worked part-time in a traditional Chinese medical clinic. Out of curiosity, I went with her to the clinic a couple of times, and the doctors there were very happy to meet a westerner and talk about their practice. While I was there, I had a pulse diagnosis (it was pretty accurate) and got an acupressure massage. The result was that I was not nearly as skeptical about traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) after firsthand exposure to it.

I apologize for the long preamble, but had it not been for that experience, I doubt if I would have had any interest in reading "Chinese Medicine for Healthy Skin." Author Michelle O'Shaughnessy has written a very interesting introduction to TCM, including the history of its development. The purpose of the book is to present a complete picture of how and why TCM works, and the healing benefits it offers. She explains the concepts of qi energy and the difference between heavenly qi and acquired qi, yin and yang (opposites), the twelve main meridians (channels in the body that facilitate the flow of qi), and the five elements (a way of categorizing life, nature, and the human body). All of these elements must be in balance in order to maintain good health.

The book then describes various means by which harmonious balance can be restored, including the use of Chinese herbs, acupuncture, acupressure massage, and restorative foods. There are recommendations for using specific herbs to treat certain diseases, and there's a chapter on where to obtain these herbs and how to prepare them.

I recommend the book for anyone who's interested in an introduction to traditional Chinese medicine, plus some recommendations on treating certain ailments, including skin conditions. Personally, I'm still a bit skeptical about some of the concepts behind TCM, but it's hard to overlook the success stories that I've heard. If you can keep an open mind and want to try some of the healing methods of TCM, this book may be the introduction you need.
