He explores basic principles from nature, such as yin and yang, the effects of our natural environment, blood circulation and obstruction, and universal patterns within all things, to explain the effects of change on our body systems. He explains how to assess your body's signs and symptoms as well as how to recognize and understand patterns of illness through their ecological connections. With clear illustrations and step-by-step instructions, he shares self-care treatments for a number of common health disorders, from colds and high blood pressure to backache, nausea, menstrual pain, and depression.
