Fountain of Youth

Fountains of Youth takes the reader on a guided tour through the parts of the body where aging is initiated. This is a Fantastic journey into several glands and organs that signal the body to age, through the blood stream and immune system, the Jekyll and Hyde of the body that so easily switches from savior to saboteur. The journey enters the microscopic realm of the living cells and takes a germ’s-eye view of their inner workings. It descends even further into the world of atoms and molecules, where we can gain a simplified understanding of life’s complex chemistry. This book explains to the reader the constituents of life, our knowledge of their workings, and how to use that knowledge to improve one’s health and extend one’s life.

How to Have a Health Pregnancy, Healthy Birth

This book is a simple introduction to the Chinese teachings concerning pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. Historically, the hallmark of Chinese medicine has been its emphasis on prevention as opposed to merely remedial care. Since healthy children have always been a major concern in Chinese culture, this emphasis is even more important in the care of pregnant women and newly birthed mothers. If you are one of these, or if you are a prospective parent, this book may provide new insights and options for you.

Topics covered include: Chinese medical ideas related to pregnancy; timing of conception; age of parents; determining gender; fetal toxins; fetal education; proper diet; appropriate exercise; self massage; professional Chinese medical care; acupuncture during pregnancy; treatment of problems during pregnancy or birth; and postpartum recuperation.
