The Tao of Nutritionby Maoshing Ni, Cathy McNease (With), Hua-Ching Ni (Foreword by)
In our rapidly changing society, people have lost their instinctive nature in the ways of eating and rely instead on their taste buds and visual sensations for choosing sustenance. People today have a poor concept of what constitutes a good diet and tend to live to eat instead of eating to live. The fast paced life often gives nutritious eating a low priority. At the same time, mind boggling numbers of different diet fads and controversial dietary regimes add even more confusion to modern eating habits. As a result we see a deterioration in the quality of people's lives in modern society.
The Tao of Nutrition presents the wisdom of the ancient Chinese who were very much in tune with their bodies and their environment. They lived by the principle of being in harmony with Nature and maintained balance in every aspect of life, especially diet. Their knowledge and experiences were preserved through generations and further refined into what we know today as Chinese nutrition. This is both a healing system and a disease prevention system. The advantage of Chinese nutrition lies in its flexibility in adapting to every individual's needs in the prevention of disease, and treatment of the whole person.
Chinese nutrition uniquely differs from modern Western nutrition in that it determines the energies and therapeutic properties of, foods instead of analyzing the chemical constituents of them. Furthermore, Chinese nutrition takes into consideration such factors as method of preparation, body type, season, and one's geographical location in determining the appropriate diet. It is hoped that the readers of The Tao of Nutrition will benefit by gaining insight, understanding, and awareness into their body and their surroundings through their diet. This book gives you the opportunity to be the master of your own body. So start now to better yourself and others by achieving health, happiness, and longevity.
