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! By exploring the mind-body-spirit connection from a truly integrative perspective, Facing East helps you maintain wellness in every aspect of your life.

Rub on capsaicin cream, a natural pain reliever made from hot peppers Can't sleep? Start snoozing with valerian--it's as effective as Valium, but it isn't addictive Want to lose a few pounds? Get a helping hand from psyllium, an herbal alternative to appetite suppressants Feeling stressed? Calm jangled nerves with ginseng--it won't undermine alertness Battling bronchitis? Clear up that cough with licorice, a natural expectorant Need help with high blood pressure? Turn to hawthorn--it has much in common with beta blockers, except for the side effects The Herbal Drugstore features these and many more herbal remedies--712 in all!

In this era of fad diets, detox programs, and "superfoods," this examination of the relationship between diet and lifestyle looks to the Far East to claim that the simple principles to live by are balance and moderation. By rebuilding the connections between what is put into the body and how it functions, the diet outlined in this book teaches the daily effects that particular food choices will have—on bodyweight, energy, mood, and the quality and duration of life—and that ultimately all foods are good in the right proportion. All major food groups are covered, with additional sections on dietary supplements, lifestyle, and attitude, plus a handful of recipes to demonstrate the principles of the diet.

Why do some people age in failing health and sadness, while others grow old with vitality and joy? In this revolutionary book, bestselling author John Robbins presents us with a bold new paradigm of aging, showing us how we can increase not only our lifespan but also our health span. Through the example of four very different cultures that have the distinction of producing some of the world’s healthiest, oldest people, Robbins reveals the secrets for living an extended and fulfilling life in which our later years become a period of wisdom, vitality, and happiness. From Abkhasia in the Caucasus south of Russia, where age is beauty, and Vilcabamba in the Andes of South America, where laughter is the greatest medicine, to Hunza in Central Asia, where dance is ageless, and finally the southern Japanese islands of Okinawa, the modern Shangri-la, where people regularly live beyond a century, Robbins examines how the unique lifestyles of these peoples can influence and improve our own. Bringing the traditions of these ancient and vibrantly healthy cultures together with the latest breakthroughs in medical science, Robbins reveals that, remarkably, they both point in the same direction. The result is an inspirational synthesis of years of research into healthy aging in which Robbins has isolated the characteristics that will enable us to live long and–most important–joyous lives. With an emphasis on simple, wholesome, but satisfying fare, and the addition of a manageable daily exercise routine, many people can experience great improvement in the quality of their lives now and for many years to come. But perhaps more surprising is Robbins’ discovery that it is not diet and exercise alone that helps people to live well past one hundred. The quality of personal relationships is enormously important. With startling medical evidence about the effects of our interactions with others, Robbins asserts that loneliness has more impact on lifespan than such known vices as smoking. There is clearly a strong beneficial power to love and connection.
