9780062363466: Facing East: Ancient Health and Beauty Secrets for the Modern Age

In Facing East, Dr. Jingduan Yang, a fifth-generation practitioner of Chinese medicine and a respected authority in integrative medicine, joins forces with style icon and wellness advocate Norma Kamali to reveal the ancient healing secrets, adapted for the modern age, that will help preserve, maintain, and restore vitality, health, and beauty in all its forms.

Style icon Norma Kamali, having felt deeply and noticeably rested and rejuvenated by Dr. Jingduan Yang’s unique acupuncture treatments, encouraged her remarkable physician to share his mastery of both traditional Chinese and Modern medicines with the world. The result is Facing East, a book filled with practical day-to-day health, beauty, wellness and lifestyle practices that can radically enhance the way you look, feel, and interact with everything and everyone around you!

Drawing from 2,500 years of wisdom adapted to today’s lifestyles, Facing East teaches you how to restore your qi—the vital energy at the root of every function in the human body—to become both internally healthy and externally radiant. Inside you’ll discover:

ˇ The ways each of the primary emotions—joy, sadness, anger, fear and worry—impact a different organ and, in turn, how the health of that organ can influence emotion

ˇ Tips to help revitalize the hair, skin, eyes, lips, teeth and nails

ˇ Self-assessments to help determine your unique general energy constitution

ˇ Personal checklists for preventative care

ˇ A year-round Wellness Plan including advice on sleep, sex, exercise, and nutrition . . . and much more!

By exploring the mind-body-spirit connection from a truly integrative perspective, Facing East helps you maintain wellness in every aspect of your life.

“Dr. Yang and Norma Kamali share ancient wisdom in a friendly, modern, and engaging dialogue, making timeless Eastern health practices relevant to the present and easy for everyone to apply in their lives.

If you want to design happy, vibrant wellness for yourself, read Facing East!”—VINCENT PEDRE, M.D., author of Happy Gut: The Cleansing Program to Help You Lose Weight, Gain Energy, and Eliminate Pain

Harness the power of the East to feel better, look younger, and live healthier, no matter your age!

Are you easily fatigued?

Is there too much fat around your belly?

Are you often unhappy?

Do you have chronic nasal congestion?

Do you have black circles under your eyes?

Does your skin often feel dry?

Do your hands and feet feel cold?

Is your skin prone to acne?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, your Qi—the vital energy essential to your body’s every function—is probably out of balance.

Filled with ancient health and beauty secrets, Facing East can help you rebalance your body and turn back the hands of time.

Facing East looks to the past for a vision of the future, drawing on ancient knowledge to devise simple strategies to allow you to stay young, vibrant, and healthy. This book by Dr. Yang, a foremost expert on Chinese medicine, and his patient, Norma Kamali, will help you to correct imbalances with techniques so simple anyone can use them with success.”—Andrew Weil, M.D., #1 New York Times bestselling author
