Addressing the issues of how and why illness occurs, this informative guide provides fresh Eastern perspectives on well-being, allowing readers to take control of their health. With easy-to-understand explanations, clear illustrations, and straightforward treatment alternatives, previously unexplained signs and symptoms can be researched and dealt with. Tried-and-true techniques developed over hundreds of years—diet, acupressure, massage, exercise, scraping, tapping, and lifestyle—are offered for common maladies from colds and high blood pressure to backache and depression. Even readers with limited medical knowledge can learn to assess their own conditions and become proactive in lifestyle changes, overcoming the sense of powerlessness that is often experienced when dealing with chronic issues.

Fad diets don't encourage permanent change. In fact, they are extremely unhealthy to maintain over the long term. The Zen Diet is different: based on Kaizen and other spiritual principles from Japan, its focus is on small but permanent changes that you make to last your entire life. Each change works synergistically to transform your physical health, lifestyle, and mental outlook, profoundly altering your view of your self and your interaction with food.
