Facing East: Time-Honored Health and Beauty Secrets for the Modern Age
In Facing East, Dr. Jingduan Yang, a fifth-generation practitioner of Chinese medicine and a respected authority in integrative medicine, joins forces with style icon and wellness advocate Norma Kamali to reveal the ancient healing secrets, adapted for the modern age, that will help preserve, maintain, and restore vitality, health, and beauty in all its forms. Style icon Norma Kamali, having felt deeply and noticeably rested and rejuvenated by Dr. Jingduan Yang's unique acupuncture treatments, encouraged her remarkable physician to share his mastery of both traditional Chinese and Modern medicines with the world. The result is Facing East, a book filled with practical day-to-day health, beauty, wellness and lifestyle practices that can radically enhance the way you look, feel, and interact with everything and everyone around you! Drawing from 2,500 years of wisdom adapted to today's lifestyles, Facing East teaches you how to restore your qi-the vital energy at the root of every function in the human body-to become both internally healthy and externally radiant.
Inside you'll discover: * The ways each of the primary emotions-joy, sadness, anger, fear and worry-impact a different organ and, in turn, how the health of that organ can influence emotion * Tips to help revitalize the hair, skin, eyes, lips, teeth and nails * Self-assessments to help determine your unique general energy constitution * Personal checklists for preventative care * A year-round Wellness Plan including advice on sleep, sex, exercise, and nutrition ...and much more!
