Overview

Read Maoshing Ni's posts on the Penguin Blog.



A guide to natural healing that combines the wisdom of Eastern tradition with Western medicine and nutritional
science.


Secrets of Self-Healing ranges 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.


In Part One, Dr. Mao explains that diet, exercise, self-awareness, a positive emotional life, living in harmony with the
environment, and spiritual growth are crucial for vibrant, lasting health. He shows, for example, how simple self-
assessments can help prevent disease, how negative emotions can make us ill, how clutter in our homes can create
imbalances in our bodies, and how Eastern and Western medicine can work together to fight cancer.

Then,
in Part Two, he reveals his favorite natural remedies for more than sixty-five common ailments, such as sore throat,
dandruff, headaches, high blood pressure, sunburn, insect bites, indigestion, and jet lag.

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

    Easy, Clear, Well written Guide to Better Health for the Whole Person

    Dr. Maoshing Ni did an excellent job writing this book. The information in it is very useful and he explains the sometimes complicated principles very clearly in a way even a novice to holistic medicine can easily understand. The book is well organized; starting with a great introduction and overview in to the philosophies and practices of traditional Chinese medicine. He then goes into explaining nutrition, healthful exercises like Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Herbalism, Acupuncture and Acupressure, and the physical benefits of meditation and prayer. After thoroughly explaining the principals of these healing modalities, he then lists how you can effectively and easily apply them to a whole array of medical conditions. The conditions include everything from hair loss and nosebleeds to Diabetes and Sciatica. All in all its a very good book that motivated me to implement some of the general health practices described in it. Its a great book to have in your library that you can go to for reference for any condition you or your family and friends develop. I highly recommend it for anyone. Thank you.
