In Secrets of Self-Healing – Book Review

This holiday season, doctor of Chinese medicine and anti-aging expert Dr. Maoshing Ni (aka Dr. Mao) will publish his groundbreaking, 600-page book on natural healing that will revolutionize the way Americans approach health and wellness. Filled with advice and knowledge acquired through years of treating patients at his Tao of Wellness clinic in Santa Monica, Secrets of Self-Healing offers readers the chance to gain insight from the doctor who has kept Hollywood young, beautiful and healthy.

In Secrets of Self-Healing (Avery / Penguin Group USA, ISBN 9781583332962, $24.95), Dr. Mao asserts that we are far too dependent on a dysfunctional medical system that fails to tap into the power of patients own self healing abilities. In contrast, he offers an approach to health that is guided by 5,000 years of Eastern tradition and grounded in Taoist philosophy.  While he integrates modern medical science and technology in his practice, he claims that a prevention-based lifestyle and a working knowledge of self-healing are the keys to long-lasting health.

Dr. Mao, whose patients include Helen Hunt, Jim Carrey and Denzel Washington, combines the wisdom of thousands of years of Eastern tradition with the best of modern medicine and nutritional science. Ranging from treating common ailments with healing foods and herbs to the all-round balancing of mind and body that is essential for vitality, wellness, and longevity, Secrets of Self-Healing will profoundly change how readers look at their own health and well-being.

Inspirational and practical, Secrets of Self-Healing will put your readers on the path to a more balanced and healthy life.
