Today, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and other nontraditional ways of healing are gaining newfound acceptance and validity in the Western medical world. In this comprehensive book, acupuncturist Deborah DeGraff presents an all-purpose health care guide based upon preventive care and the balance of energy, or qi.

By keeping your body, mind, and spirit in harmony, you can enjoy good health. The Body Owner's Manual is your personal guide to reaching -- and maintaining -- that balance. This book outlines the many facets of alternative medicine and helps you form your own individual plan for diet, exercise, relaxation, and detoxification.

Included is a self-care dictionary that lists common ailments and how to use preventive and holistic care to remedy them. Finally, real people share inspiring and encouraging stories of how they've used acupuncture and holistic medicine to recover from asthma, cope with grief, quit smoking and more. With The Body Owner's Manual, you'll learn how to use your body's natural energy to achieve the physical and spiritual balance that equals good health.
