Ancient Remedies: Secrets to Healing with Herbs, Essential Oils, CBD, and the Most Powerful Natural Medicine in History
Cures for ailments have been around since the dawn of civilization. These have primarily been based on a combination of magic, religion, and science. This book embraces the principles of holistic medicine and uses Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as its basis for diagnosing and curing various ailments. The book is divided into four parts: Part I (five chapters) makes the case for holistic medicine (specifically TCM). Part II (five chapters) provides an overview of the various aspects of TCM. Part III & IV seek to apply the principles by providing an overview of the five basic elements, prescription for some common ailments, and recipes.
The book is easy to read, well organized, and the chapter subsections make it easy to reference. However, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence, and references to scientific studies virtually disappear later into the book. The book’s tone is positive, so positive that some portions may come across as hype. It also makes the assumption that modern medicine cures the symptom and not the cause of the ailment. Some readers may take issue with these aspects. Overall, a good introductory text for TCM, but some of its claims may go too far.
