Summary & Review
The concept of self-care is, in fact, thousands of years old. This buzzword is rooted in a 2,500-year old Chinese philosophy. ‘Yang sheng’ means to nourish life – fostering your own health and wellbeing by nurturing body, mind and spirit.In this book, Katie Brindle teaches readers how to harness this powerful natural healing system to improve every aspect of their life.Yang Sheng fits and works brilliantly in modern life. Some of the techniques may seem unusual, but they are all simple, quick and effective. Even more appealing, a key principle of Chinese medicine is balance; that means not being perfect or excluding foods or having too many rules or pushing yourself to exhaustion with overwork or over-exercise. And so, Yang Sheng encourages you to have the green juice and the glass of wine, a full-on day at work and a night out dancing.For people who are overtired and overtaxed, stressed, lacking a sex drive, or who feel anxious or hopeless, the practice of Yang sheng restores balance. Our bodies are designed to self-heal – Yang Sheng knows the mechanics of how to activate this.
It’s my dream to help people discover yang sheng techniques. These simple but powerful habit and lifestyle changes have transformed my life. I know the knowledge in this book can do the same for you. Living the yang sheng waywill improve the way you feel in so many ways, from your sleep and digestion, to your skin and energy levels. Yang sheng has mood benefits, too:getting into balance will bring you closer to a default state of calm and quiet contentment. And you can get all of these benefits in just a few minutes a day.
This book will explain the principles of yang sheng, which is currently relatively unknown in the West. But, most importantly, it will show you howto fit this system into your life, easily and effortlessly. You can use the books the beginning of a journey deep into Chinese medicine or you can simply add a few of the suggestions to your daily routine.Chinese medicine is ancient, yet it’s still relevant today. It has helped millions of people and it can help you, too. Life has evolved, but the mechanisms of our body haven’t really changed. The actual techniques have stood the test of thousands of years. What I have tried to do is to bring them up to date with a modern format and instructions.
I only ask that you keep an open mind and give it a try.BENEFITS OF DAILY HEALTH MAINTENANCE Yang sheng has such a different way of thinking about the body, but this is precisely why it’s valuable. Western medicine tends not to focus on disease prevention. We, in turn, take our good health for granted until we’re ill; at which point, we treat the symptoms collectively rather than looking for a root cause.If you fell sick in ancient China, it was regarded as a failure of preventive medicine. The principle of yang sheng – and indeed of Chinese medicine – is that if you eliminate small health niggles as they arise, you’ll prevent biggerones happening. There’s an ancient Chinese proverb: ‘Waiting to treat illnesses after they manifest is like waiting to dig a well after one is thirsty.’When you adopt yang sheng as a daily practice, you are being proactive about your health maintenance, using what I consider to be the most powerful and time-tested of techniques. Think of it like this: regular yang sheng will dofor your well being what tooth brushing does for your mouth. You wouldn’t dream of not brushing your teeth each day – and once you see and feel the benefits of yang sheng, you will want to continue doing it every day, too. It is daily maintenance for your body, mind and spirit.
