True Wellness For Your Heart: Combine The Best Of Western And Eastern Medicine For Optimal Heart Health (True Wellness)
Combines the best that Eastern and Western medicine can offer in the understanding, treatment, and prevention of heart disease and hypertension.
Over a decade has passed since Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease (Caldwell Esselstyn Jr.) and Energy Medicine (Donna Eden) seminal books shed light on taking more control of person health through lifestyle changes. Now, Drs. Kurosu and Kuhn offer a step-by-step guide to optimal heart health and care. True Wellness for Your Heart combines the best that Eastern and Western medicine have to offer in the understanding, treatment, and prevention of heart disease and hypertension. By blending modern research with ancient practices, this book will help readers along their journey toward better cardiovascular health and overall well-being.
The authors have helped thousands of people through the use of surgery, pharmaceuticals, acupuncture, herbs, qigong, tai chi, meditation, and life-style counseling. They explain how Western medicine has substantiated a long-held understanding of the heart held by Eastern medicine – that heart health is significantly impacted by sleep, emotions, movement, food, and social support. The authors discuss how sleep, exercise, nutritious food, stress management, acupuncture, and qigong favorably impact the cardiovascular system. These modalities restore balance in the nerves, hormones, and neurotransmitters that influence the heart and blood vessels.
• Drs. Kuhn and Kurosu strongly recommend a collaborative approach, encouraging readers to engage with their Western healthcare providers so that serious conditions can be addressed safely.
