The Body Owner's Manual

An Acupuncturist's Teachings on Health and Well-Being

By Deborah DeGraff

Introducing a self-care guide to prevention, nutrition, detoxification, energy maintenance, stress reduction, herbal remedies, exercise, and more - based on the ancient tradition of Chinese medicine. 

Western medicine emphasizes treating disease, while traditional Chinese medicine is a healing art, focusing on ensuring harmony between body, mind and spirit. In The Body Owner's Manual, acupuncturist Deborah DeGraff blends West and East with self-care skills that help you improve your health and quality of life. Illnesses, aches, and other physical symptoms are "distress signals" communicating a problem or imbalance. Listening to your body's signals can help you make changes that restore balance to your life.

Part I of The Body Owner's Manual presents an overview of the basics of Chinese medicine and self-care, including Qi (energy), diet, relaxation, strengthening the immune system, cleansing and detoxification, and emotional health. Part II is a self-care guide for healing specific ailments. The ideas are clear and practical, with suggestions that can't help but improve your health and well-being.

With THE BODY OWNER'S MANUAL, you'll learn how to work with your body to achieve the physical and spiritual balance that equals good health.
