Reflections from a Hospital Bed by Sung L. Hsia

This book tells the stories of the author's childhood in China in the 1920s, how he and his family and friends survived the eight year war between China and Japan, and World War II, how he left China for the United States to pursue graduate education and landed in a TB hospital after graduation with a Ph.D. degree. Miraculously, he recovered from the disease, and with regained health and a new set of life values, he pursued an exciting career of a research biochemist.

In the book, the author tells the story how he learned and practiced Qi-gong while he was a sick child, and how he refined his techniques of Qi-gong while on bed rest in the TB hospital. He explains how this meditative exercise fine-tunes the mind and body to achieve harmony within one's self and the world, and how the power of Qi brings on relaxation and self-healing. He uses the bad things that happened to him as examples, to point out the brighter side of tribulations, and how to cope with misfortune and find comfort, inner peace and happiness even when a disaster strikes.

Dr. Hsia overcame more obstacles in his life than what most anyone could imagine. His reflections, not only of the tough times and good times, but the remedy that he and anyone else can readily use to overcome their own tough obstacles makes this book worth many times the price. Health answers that apply to us all is what this is all about. You gotta read it.
